I want DOG DAYS but can't get over the lack of subtitles :\ Glad to see it selling.

Boy, KoiChoco must've really bombed, which is disappointing. Happy to see Joshiraku do not half bad, though.

Yeah, not so hot on some of those. I always find it fascinating that eroge adaptations are made in such vast quantities, but very few sell well as anime. The only reason I can see for them continually being produced are strong production committees pushing so the eroge sell more copies, just like publishers do with manga and LNs.

It's not like there's an inherent evil determinism causing these anime to be made. If the initial products (LNs, VNs, manga, eroge, etc.) didn't have a fanbase, they wouldn't get anime in consistent numbers.

They'll buy the better titles like Haganai and Highschool DxD. I'm sure TLR Darkness will sell well if they remain true to the manga source. But it mainly comes down to anime not being its own entity in production, these things are tied with many other interests in mind beyond BD sales.

Hell yeah, Dog Days'! Thats my favorite show of the season right there. It seems almost guaranteed to get a 3rd season now!

Also that many of these shows just aren't good. The Sister show and Dakara were trash, so they'll sell like trash.

Seems I am not amongst people with the same tastes here as I enjoyed both Dakara Boku Wa and Kono Naka Ni. I found both funny and entertaining. Kono Naka Ni had an interesting premise. Rewatchable, not sure. Dakara Boku wa I absolutely loved and would rewatch for sure but Japanese BD prices are insane. I bought all the Japanese light novels and manga for the price of one BD... If I got the whole season for the price of one BD then I'd buy it for sure but buying six or more at that price is too much. I will buy the manga or light novels with the bundled OVA for sure.

No subs doesn't bother me at all. In fact I much prefer soft subs so I can turn them off to see the anime as it was intended but perhaps I am weird beyond my enjoyment of trash.

I am glad a lot of shows sold at least decently, especially Joshiraku and Jinrui. WTF is Imouto and ErecChocolate could also double or tripple their known numbers come weekend.

But SwordArt will crush them all. Event Horizon.
