I will probably re-watch this as well and I'm actually looking forward to it. Sakurasou was my first romcom anime and also something new for me since I've only watched Naruto, Bleach and FT since then.

This anime definitely had a big impact on me mostly because it was the first in its genre but also something new for once and like hpulley said the characters are good, humor is funny, bgm, animation, all that jazz are extremly good and memorable ^^

By volumes 1-10 I assume you mean the 12 novels including side volumes 5.5 and 7.5? They are each about 600 yen so if you get all 12, 7200 yen ($72) or so, 6000 yen ($60) if you skip the side story volumes but they're good too!

If you mean the discs, there are only 8 of them but they are more expensive, with amazon discount the Blurays are 6000 yen each so 48000 yen ($480) for the set. Whereas if you wait for the set from Sentai it will likely be much less, something like Fate/Stay Night on DVD for $48, a tenth the price. But I doubt if it will come with all the extra soundtrack, ED and radio CDs and DVDs, the manga and Nyaporon and other extra booklets and stuff, Sentai likely just gives you the anime DVDs and a single booklet. Are the extras worth all the extra money along with supporting the show more? They are to me but not to everyone.

I don't see a set on sale right now. There is a 1-9 set listed but it is only listed for used, not sure if you can buy that or not but here is volume 10 and in the "Customers who bought this also bought" section down below there are links to the other volumes:
http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/4048917943

There are some pictures in them too so they can be enjoyed even if you cannot read them.

Definitely don't order them one at a time! The minimum shipping for books is expensive but a box of books isn't much more than 1 book. Also, you might want to wait for a set as Amazon charges the same for one book or one set of books so the set would save on shipping.

It's worth investigating whether or not there is a Japanese book distributor in your country. They may have what you want in stock or they may be able to order it. And the shipping costs will be much cheaper.

If you can't find a "local" book distributor, then you'll have no choice but to order from Amazon Japan, and the like. But definitely order in bulk! Shipping is very expensive.

In the US, there is a chain called Kinokuniya that you can order from. Of course, you'll be ordering untranslated books, so you better be able to read Japanese!

First, you talk about illegally streaming anime and asking for season two but here on Crunchyroll anyways I think most people are watching Sakurasou legally unless the license doesn't cover them. So I am not sure you need to keep bringing that up. If were were on MyAnimeList.net where most people seem to watch illegal fansubs, I would agree with you there.

I know that release week sales count the most, especially for the first volume. That is when I buy my anime. Buying it months later after all the discs have come out doesn't actually help the show much as the committee will already have decided by then if it was successful or not which is part of the decision on whether or not to make another season.

Sentai's home fees don't help much. It takes a long time for them to even release the discs for home video and the fee they pay is probably quite small. There may be some up front payments but I suspect the guarantee is fairly low as I doubt Sentai expects to sell many copies and their price for a season is only $40-80 or something like that.

Again, sorry. To me your post appeared to be there simply to get a rise out of people. It certainly got one out of me...

And again, the funny thing is I share the same argument. In my opinion if you like the show and want to help it get a second season you should buy the import discs. They're expensive but they are that way because they are expected to support the show. Western anime buyers don't seem to understand this, they seem to think they should be able to get a season of anime for $9.99, not realizing that they would need to sell over 100,000 copies to break even at that rate compared to the 3000 copies at $300/season they get from imports. The best selling anime series this year did not sell 100,000 copies in Japan so shows like Sakurasou would never have any hope of breaking even for that price as there just aren't that many buyers. Crunchyroll has something like 200,000 subscribers so if you can imagine every subscriber spending $5/show for every show, that would help to support a show but we pay $60/year here and assuming Crunchyroll only used that money to pay for shows, nothing else that would only support 10-12 shows but Crunchyroll puts up over 100 shows a year. So while that money probably help them, it is far from enough.

Agreed again, this is a business. They don't want to take a loss when they make a show.
Yes but most people on that petition probably aren't from Crunchyroll are they? I believe that's the same one I see going around on other non legal sites including MAL which has more users than this site. That's why I specified that most of them don't watch legally, not all. And like you said Crunchyroll doesn't support that much, buying the BDs would help it way more which was my point.

Yes exactly. Though of course not all anime run solely on BDs, manga sales, tv ratings, merchandise, etc are also part of it. The ratio of which they target more is different for a lot of them with some anime getting new seasons just because the anime boosted the manga's sales. Long running anime stay more towards manga and tv ratings, etc.

No problem, as long as you realize that that wasn't my intent.

Yeah though the problem is the difference in culture and country. That price is seen as too expensive for someone out of Japan to pay. People would rather buy a new video game than some BDs, they see it as worth more. I don't know the exact number but I think TV shows in America or in the west is way cheaper than anime. And especially with all the different ways you can watch it, like for free illegally and you can download as much as you want, only the people that are very into anime would buy imports. And import BDs are of course made for the Japanese market, I'm not to familiar with them as I haven't bought any yet but they are of a different region and don't come with subs right? Yes Crunchyroll is just trying to open a better for the industry alternative and possibly a step towards a possibly better or ideal alternative for it. And idk about the amount of people who just watch it for free, Crunchyroll still gets money from the ads.

Really? Is that all you can say? You're the one who looks like a troll now. The only posting you've done towards me is calling me a troll or pointing out something redundant that it's my opinion that I don't like a show even using a meme to do it. You can't even start a conversation correctly or provide reasons why I am a troll. And you can't read either, if you look at his post(yes the one you've quoted) he's already basically said that he doesn't see me as a troll and we're even talking and agreeing about stuff. It's obvious he doesn't need your input.

Blurays play fine here! Bluray region 1 is Japan and North America which is perfect! Most TV shows don't get subs, with exceptions like Little Busters! and LoveLive! but not Sakurasou unfortunately.

Sakurasou has novel sales and they are good so that can be enough for a season 2 except... that as far as we know only one more novel is coming out so likely Dengeki Bunko would rather boost another series like... Golden Time! That's just the way it goes.

For other shows you're right. Some are mostly based on toys, figures and dolls! Others music discs, manga, and daytime kids and long running shounen stuff is mostly based on TV ratings.

Yes

That's great, I thought they were of a different region. A lot or probably most of people not in Japan have to rely on subs. In order to use them they have to rip the Blu ray and use fan subs.

Yeah they would rather adapt a series that is still publishing than one that's not unless it already has a fanbase. Anime do really boost original material sales.

Yes that is correct. So for some anime it's probably a little cheaper to support by buying other things. Other things that you can enjoy fully out of the box.
