damn it japan
Holy fuck lets make a thread every single time there's a spike in the series preorders guys. Lets post Jeff Goldblum pictures and be fucking original.
why only AB Park ? wheres the other shows ? Fail thread, report
what has changed?
Why is this popular?
What the appeal of this shit? I don't understand.
The Cover of BD?DVD
I fucking Japan's shit taste
>>change the cover
And it still looks like shit
It's not a bad show? It's been enjoyable so far.
Japan has extremely bland and one dimensional taste in the anime they're willing to purchase that usually owes itself more to lots of moe moe girls and popular brand names than anything else. Without that most people just don't actually buy Blu-Rays cause they're expensive as fuck and not really worth it in the era of DVR and streaming. No secret strategy here, that's just the kind of market it is and what the limited anime consumer market cares about. Also extras like the cover art on the box that just got revealed right as the show happened to be hitting a low point in preorders make a huge difference since this is the sort of shit buyers care about.
Honestly people put way too much fucking stock and importance in R2 market sales these days and it's really stupid cause it's not the same kind of markets and interests you have stateside at play really. Like a little research will show how so much of it has to do entirely with packaging, pricing and extras as well as how the show panders to it's audience using cute girls in the right combination that I don't see why people care so goddamn much.
Anything that makes KyoAni stay away of their own LN is fine with me.
>WAAAAAH I DON'T LIKE THING
Damn that's awful, did the LN author do it?
He/she is actually right.
Too easy for Kyoani
>It's not a bad show
All these tears
It's sad that the japanese audience only cares about moe girls.
It's not bad, but there's nothing good about it either, it's completely average.
I guess Sento is cute but
Nobody's really crying that I see anon. Stop trying to force an issue that isn't there
Seriously, this is a non-issue.
GodAni is winning money, all's right with the world.
This show isn't remotely good enough to warrant this number or preorders. Maybe it will get there, but it isn't now. I don't get nips.
It's pretty much your cookie cutter paint by numbers Kyoani moe moe comedy anime just with better packaging, more fanservice and the benefit of being based on a pre-existing property that has more than one LN volume out and is by a popular author instead of one of Kyoani's amateur writers. As usual no real effort has to be or has been put into it beyond the production values.
That's your opinion.
What do you watch anime for?
because of quality tits and ass
Awaken MUH DICK
A yes the obligatory baiting post in these threads. Very timely. I don't know at first I was kind of indifferent to them but now I'm starting to see the point people who want to see these threads banned are making. They have literally no potential and are pretty much just for shitposting and baiting and are pretty much all the exact same thread.
I don't see how anyone could watch this for cute girls when they're all fawning over alpha MC cock. Do you also enjoy netorare?
CGDCT is the way to go is moe is what you want.
I was agreeing with you though, there's no issue to force here.
Personally, I wouldn't make this type of type because I don't find it surprising when Kyoani sells a lot.
It's like people forgot there was a time when Kyoani used to sell a lot on practically every show they were making for years.
Now they are back to doing it, and it's business as usual.
I don't think so, this is just them selling out. The way I see it, KyoAni is in full degeneracy mode, probably because of all the women on staff. Either there weren't this many women on staff before, or someone who kept them in check left.
It just looks like packaging is making more of a difference than anything right now. It's being micro-managed and timed similar to other popular moe moe shows like Love Live and idolM@STER. Any time there's a noticeable dip in preorders they just add in some new extra to the package or reveal some new artwork and it goes right back up. Honestly this is kind of just the way to go in this day and age if you want much of a hope of cracking the 20K line without appealing to fujoshi too or something cause there's just not enough people actually willing to buy anime on it's own. It's not really the fact that it's Kyoani so much as the type of packaging and content period.
Pretty much this.
Every show has distinct packaging that gets revealed sooner or later though. Not like other shows are being sold in nondescript blank cases or something. And the extras isn't anything you wouldn't find in any other show. A box to house all the volumes, an illustrated cover, some staff and cast commentaries, probably a pencil board or postcard. Nothing out of the ordinary, not even an event ticket.
You definitely can't say the cover reveal is enough to rocket just any show up to top 5.
>Why is this popular?
Low hanging fruit of purely tits and ass show with paper thin plot.
I don't blame them though, people buy whatever they fuck they want. Other shows keep getting made, so it's not that bad.

moefags are buying it so Kyoanus won't go for fujoshi again.
it's not that hard to figure out.
GODAni wins again
Fuck Yeah Japan, FTFY
WE TOP 5 NOW
KYOANI FINDS A WAY
>mai waifu and imouto at the same time
mai dikku, ughhh
I like how I don't even need to check stalker myself for updates anymore.
I just need to wait for butthurt haters to report it for me so I can marvel at the high ranks while laughing at their rage simultaneously.
I'd say Western tastes gravitate towards a smaller number of extremely popular stuff, even if most of them pirate so have no expensive price excuse.
When are the actually good shows going to come out on amazon?
Are you sure this isn't just the cover for the box? This can't be it. I refuse to believe Kadowaki drew this "quality" art.
Why are you surprised? Very talented artists have actually left kyoani in the past because they've been forced to draw moeshit just like this without a tiny bit of creative freedom.
Yeah, this. OP, at least make it a general preorder thread. I, too, am sick and tired of the constant KyoAni trolling whenever they are not top of the list and like that now the trolls can be trolled by rubbing it in, but this is just a bit too much.
Then again, it might be a false flag to stir up the board, you never know how trolls think.
I don't get it. What's the bad part about it?
I'm not sure why you guys keep arguing which show will be second best seller of this season
>ironically stating the routine as a novel idea
>ironically stating the routine as a novel idea
>ironically stating the routine as a novel idea
Learn to not take anything seriously in a preorder thread.
Maybe he just wanted an Amagi thread without all the waifufaggotry?
I don't like how the Princess look, there is something wrong with her face.
Because Fateshit is shit and people prefer to talk about other shows for a change. Seriously, even preorder threads are less cancerous than a dozen Fateshit circlejerks polluting the board.
Most of anime in Japan caters to what anime has always been: The most purified version of whatever currently constitutes 'wish fulfillment,' which at this moment is SoL with harem options for the MC, and/or yuri line-up so there's no insecurity due to male presence. This obviously indicates the severe autism of modern Japan's youth
Prior--say, the 80's/early 90's--the fantasy was the be a strong mecha pilot, samurai, or some other archetypal male figure and have your choice of a few ideally designed girls. The distinction is obvious: Your average anime fan's 'wish fulfillment' was to become superhuman, or of extreme bravado and possessor of grand male-coveted characteristics. Now, anime fans are so cloistered and insecure they fantasy about simply being with a high school girl, as their entire lives have been about conflict avoidance and severe self-flagellation.
Since the US youth is probably a bit more self-possessed and confident than the average Japanese youth, given cultural standards/pressures/etc., they still seem to mostly gravitate towards the 'wish fulfillment' of yesteryear (shonen shit). KLK, SnK, POS, etc. Full disclosure: I enjoy those, just providing examples of what's now entry-tier in the states.
Tl;dr: Japan caters to a wider base of mostly more docile/introverted viewers, and while there certainly are those in the rest of the world, the "typical" anime viewer outside Asia still gravitates towards what used to be more popular in Japan 20-30 years ago, i.e. action/shonen.
As such, /a/ is often representative of the more weeaboo/hikki/avoidant set present in modern Japan, but that's because it's self-selected as such due to the culture of 4chan
>Most original premise
No one should be surprised Amagi is topping the charts.
>a-amagi boring park, rite guys?
>Kanye, 50 cent and Queen Latifah get together to save a theme park
Sounds like the beginning of a joke, honestly.
Says the park owner: Fuck off, niggers
The park owner is Chris Tucker.
Free in the summer and now Amagi.
Rev up that Free S3.
Pfft HA HA HA
I think people are just buying it to somehow proof a point.
Fact is: Buying physical copies of media is obsolete as fuck. They probably just want to enlarge their otakudick by showing off to their (non-existant) friends that they got BOTH cover versions.

>less T&A than Vanadis or Grisia
>less cute girls doing cute things than Inou Batoru
>less animation than everything this season
>rank fucking 5
math this does not make
>>less animation than everything this season
That a fact?
everything has been talking stills
Its a good aninme
What about Kanye's speech?
The ass that moved 25,000 BDs
Well that's a load of shit
The entirety of Kanye speech scene was full of animations though.

It will never stop.
Good thing that's just the Amazon exclusive that's doing well. It's going to be terribly overestimated. The non-exclusive version is even below Inou Batoru right now.
That's exactly why all the other volumes are in the top 100. Yep, that makes perfect sense.
Do you really think a lot of otaku would want to buy the "non-exclusive" version?
