Welp, that's a big ol' ouch! for Occultic;Nine. Oh well. It's still a gorgeous production, even if the story and characters didn't live up to the potential it had. Sad

Gundam: The Domination. Nice seeing P5 sell that much. ALL HAIL HESTIA! Thunderbolt Fantasy deserves so much more. Bomba;Nine? FF XV can't be stopped.

I'm amazed at Mobile Suit Gundam's very-high sales! Surprised
A shame that Occult;Nine was a total bust...

Boom doom for Occultic;Nine.

Surprised for Persona 5 OVA to be in the list.

Actually I'm kind of disappointed at Gundam's sales. I read the entire manga and it's the best adaptation this story ever had; it's a little bit disheartening that Unicorn managed to outsell this by a wide margin considering how convoluted and contrived those ovas ended up being. But I know sales are rarely about quality.

Unicorn is tailor-made for the type of Gundam fan that buys OVAs. It's not like Unicorn is competing with Origin for sales, though, so I'm not sure what the big deal is about one doing better than the other. They both clearly have their fans.

Ouch is putting it nicely. That is more of a big wound for sales.
