I think the most amazing part of that link is that the separation between the bottom of the Top 10 and Top of the Bottom 15 is 5%. If one of Arms 10 less-than-3000 series surpasses 3000 disc sales, it's in the Top 10. If two of Xebec's 22 less-than-3000 series surpass it, it's just outside the Top 10.

The fact that only seven companies hit 3000 disc sales more than they miss is stunning. Especially since only four of those seven have produced 20 series in those 11 years.


Looking back at the list, they could have just had a bottom 10 and top 10 to show a stronger gap, or better yet those that have more of a hit rate than miss rate (better than 50%). Looking at MH, although it is in the bottom 15, it seems as if they just throw everything they can and when they get a hit, its pretty damn successful to make most if not all of their money back, but going by those statistics, its more about if a show they made hit or didn't, and not taking into account of the quality of the hits. While the Top 2, SHAFT, and KyoAni, I think they have more or less perfected what they know their audience wants, and they make that Type with a stronger assurance it will be a hit. I feel like checking their Networth at sometime, to see how they fair against each other in that regard.

EDIT: lol your second reply predict this reply xD


I apologize. =/

My mind has wandered into strange places lately, where I don't try to look at the facts and statistics as directly presented to me and maybe try another angle. I fully blame the sports podcasts/shows I listen to (Dan Le Batard, Bill Simmons, Bomani Jones, Colin Cowherd to an extent) and the people I like talking to that make me think this way. It helps that I know how well stats can be swayed to make them look better or worse from newscasting. Weird things interest me.

Same that MadHouse has 14 of 68 series over 3000 sales, but it doesn't say which of those 14 have done exceedingly well, like 10000 disc sales or whatever.

I didn't think about that. These are good points.


It's certainly an interesting topic. I've thought more about anime studios in the last hour than I ever have in my lifetime.

I agree pretty much, especially with the last part since that's the main depressing part about this. Really hope the people move to studios like Production IG, Madhouse, or Shaft but really just hope that they land somewhere really. Though this whole thing has made me want to see the Project Itoh movies.

Also a note: the thing with Loomy isn't really a "Fate Group" thing, its more of a ideological clashing (one side understands having standards in media and treating certain subjects in a respectful and mature manner; the other wants to put any and every crapsack trope they can into series alongside service under the pretense of making it more 'realistic' and using faux-mature elements while presenting it in a crude/unrefined way).

You've got some serious issues, my man.

It's no wonder why Manglobe hasn't been doing much these days as they are running out of money. Gangsta just came out one and a half years after SamFlam ended, and normally there isn't this long of a lag between shows.

You're going out of your way to comment towards someone in your view that has 'issues', regardless of whether I do or not (I don't), so which of us is really the one with issues?

Thus showing further the mental deficiency/lack of a grasp on reality, may want to go take your meds.

I don't know if I'd ever watched a Manglobe show before SamFlam and Gangsta. I've been meaning to watch Champloo, though.

You never seem to have any better comeback than "n-no, you!!"

Either way, this is off-topic and I don't want to get banned for derailing, so I'll stop with you now.

I pointed out the flaw in your thinking and your saying someone has 'issues' (mental deficiency) is a cheap go-to for anyone on the opposite of someone else.

Fine with me.
