Fun With Numbers: October 2014 US Amazon Data (Initial Numbers)

October figures to be an interesting month, the second in a row headlined by multiple releases likely to chart. The most obvious is DBZ: Battle of Gods, which has the combo pack at 138th place a week before release. GitS: Arise and Hellsing Ultimate also have respectable probabilities of ranking given good thresholds; Ultimate is basically in the same position Steins Gate was in a month ago, and that release encouragingly broke into the lower 200s today.

    • I listened to the first third of it. He seemed to not have a whole lot of specific figures, but it was neat to hear the aniplex USA stuff is doing well there. I get the impression a lot of flak turned their way is by fans part of a demographic less likely to be buyers in any case.

      The merchandising stuff he mentions is more interesting, though I wonder how much of the market that exists is large enough to bring the necessary economies of scale to bear.
