This happened again. SxF viewer rate is not on this ranking, means it's lower than Curious George(2.1%) which is standing on lowest place.
>>237719048didnt curious george have a tail
I knew this shit was flopping
>>237719048Viewer rate peak was 1st episode which recorded 3.1% the it keeps dropping
because it gets a late night slot (also during the weekdays too, right?). after the first episode maybe people think it's not interesting enough to stay up late to watch it live so they choose to watch it later. it has high timeshift rating. the overall rating is around 9-8 which is high (but not recording breaking as some claimed. that's KnY). KnY experienced something similar too but it's fucking KnY so it still got 8 something for live rating.
>>237719048So this didn't work?
>>237719335They learn nothing from Squid8 it seems...
>>237719335Besides kny, shit like this never seem to work
>>237719335Even in Japan, 90% of people must sigh and/or cringe when they walk past this stuff.
>>237719270KnY is kids show as well so children are not allowed to being awake on midnight until 1am so many of them watched on streaming services.Most of SxF viewers are adult so no reason they avoid midnight show and also 11pm is not so late considering anime standard.
>>237719335Jeez just how much money did they spend for this?>>237719478why was it different for kny?
every normal person is watching it on netflix or disney+
>>237719562Kny was good
Curious George has a better OP toohttps://youtu.be/QuIuPms_VYs
>>237719478KnY began this after they got huge popularity.This is why market and media didn't prepare for this and manga books disappeared from bookstores allover Japan because of supply insufficiency.
>>237719584no it wasnt
>>237719048Wait so it isn't popular as /a/ suggested? All of sudden I think this anime is pretty good now
>>237719048Huh, didn't know Curious George is loved by the japs.
>>237719685Then why do you think it worked for kny? dumbass
>>237719478KnY season 1 didn't get this kind of advertisment tho. They were busy promoting Samurai 8. KnY started getting this massive advertisement after it became a success.
How long until we have to deal with "muh curious George is better than 99% of anime" because people here would try too hard to make the weebs seethe
>>237719695It's popular in the west at least.
>>237719562>why was it different for kny?they started the campaign after it became massive and not before.
>>237719048Japanese English teacher here. All that says is "Niggers tongue my anus"
>>237719159Absoulety fucking based George drawing the dimes. SxF has always been overrated FOTM shit, glad it got exposed by a real anime.
Sorry, i only talk about ratings with /pw/. /a/ is too dumb and irrelevant for stuffs like that
>>237719048FUCKING BASED BEEN HATING THAT SHIT EVER SINCE THE SPAMS
>>237719724based retard has no answer
>>237719574I thought Japs still mostly buy and rent DVDs.
>>237719727GOOD MORNING SIR
>>237719697I don't know it worked on KnY too because Ufotable did it after being popular.I'm living in Japan and have never seen KnY ads in Shinjuku or Shibuya in 2019.
And here it comes, Nu-/a/ pretending that they care about Curious George because "making the weebs seethe" is all they desire
>>237719574But other popular anime recorded higher viewing rate such and KnY, JJK, SnK etc...Why only SxF is such low?
>>237719812>making the weebs seethenahthis spyxfamily shit been spamming a lot lately
>>237719647Wtf. I watched George as a kid and here they didn't have vocals, only the instrumental. Hearing the lyrics for the first time feels so weird and out of place.
>>237719847What spamming ? I thought 2-3 threads at the same time is normal for a current airing show ?
>>237719517>90% of people must sigh and/or cringe when they walk past this stuff.Japan aren't filled with no-fun boomer mutts like you. Hell, fans even go out of their way to take photos of these ads.
>>237719856It always had lyrics, what country are you from?https://youtu.be/5u-aPWN06nk
>>237719904A shithole called Indonesia
>>237719703As soony as trannies like you start falseflagging it into existence
>>237719048>it isn't in the top 10 so it's a flop!!Digging the bottom of the barrel, huh?>>237719335Judging from manga sales, I think it did.
>>237719847>>237719150>>237719517>>237719584>>237719647>>237719695>>237719727So you contrarian retards are just going to kill youselves once Chainsaw Man airs?
>>237719762Buying DVD/Blu-ray means collecting item and supporting the studios.This is why popularity in Japan is so important for anime industory.There is big profitability difference between DVD and streaming services.
>>237719048Neither Curious George nor Spy x Family is on there... I only recognize Doraemon, Shin Chan, One Piece, and a bunch of other kodomo shows. OP is a tard baiting pther tards that can't read simple kanas
>>237719883yes that is literally a spamming
>>237719048Where can I find this information for older shows?
>>237719955I like both SxF and Curious George
>>237719992Neither can you apparently
>>237719048What are these bait threads? So what? Isn't Curious George almost always at the top? It surpassed even DBS and One Piece sometimes
>>237719992George is there, おさるのジョージ.
>>237719955>Chainsaw manreason why normie tastes are shit >>237719925based, they should be put to death
>>237719335Japanese wageslave is too busy commuting 4 times a day to pay attention to billboards.
>>237719703It's true, though. At least you learn something from watching George.
>>237720032>>237720051Didn't know that was what Curious George is called in nip. Point still stand on Spy x Family
>>237720057>4 times a day
>>237719048How to explain this then?
>>237720086Apparently you can't even read the OP post either.
>>237719955CSM was only good during the weekly threads in the first year or so. Then too many people started enjoying it for me like it before the anime was even announced
>>237719048Is dAnime rank nothing then? Spy family is 1st rank in this season.
>>237720220Popularity threads always bring out the ESLs.
>>237719048How about dAnime rank?
>>237719048>Look, I found one metric where Spy x Family isn't outpacing everything>Children's daytime television!>No I've never used this standard and never will againCope threads like these are so retarded. Why not just dislike the thing instead of grasping at straws in such a nakedly pathetic way.Why does your relationship with this anime read like a taylor swift song? how did it hurt you?
>>237719048So it got bested out by kidshit and Conan? And? Not sure why this shit means anything.
>>237720171>>237720256All most popular anime of the seasons were standing on 1st place in this kind of streaming such as Snk, JOJO, KnY or JJK.Problem is they recorded good/not bad viewing rate unlike SxF.
>>237720274Leaving out a word because I type slower than I think and don't bother to proofread doesn't make me ESL retard
So basically the anime is flopping and the manga will remain a Top-10 seller instead of catapulting into the stratosphere like some predicted?
>>237719335Don't think I have seen any advertisement in Osaka, I was around Dotonbori near the end of April too, but nothing. Maybe I haven't been paying attention. Also went to Shikoku for Golden Week, definitely nothing there. There were Chainsaw ads even months after the manga finished.
>>237720414But dAnime rank says else. Spy family isn't on fuji TV.
>>237720444>There were Chainsaw ads even months after the manga finishedIt's worked too. Chainsaw Man has continued to sell great even a year from its ending.
>>237720386Lol. If you can't think or proofread two sentences, then it's still a second language to you faggot.
>>237719955Can't wait for that shit to flop too after all the forced hype
>>237719048Japanese Kids like Curious George?
>>237719704It seems France, most manga friendly country in west, prefers Korean Isekai shit than SxF.
>>237720497>Chainsaw Man>"forced" hype
>>237719048holy based america wins again
>>237720520SpyxFamily outsold solo leveling in france last year though, and that was pre-anime. You can't just look at an amazon ranking once and extrapolate sales
>>237720548>KnY yaoi doujin ranked inWtf
>>237720520Solo leveling? It seems to childish. Korean webtoon won't be a Kurofune to anime and manga unless they lessen their censorship. Daki's costume(Bikini armor-like outfit which was made before humans) won't be allowed in Korean webtoon.

>>237720376>Problem is they recorded good/not bad viewing rate unlike SxF.
>>237720612>Doujinyou mean Gaiden?
>>237720493I guess you can't read either retard. I said I type slower than I think and it's a common mistake when you write a paper. Being too lazy to proofread a 4chan post doesn't mean anything
>>237720444>Don't think I have seen any advertisement in OsakaThat's because Tokyo is seen as a priority for advertisers.
>>237720520Why France loves One Piece so much?
>>237719335Isn't the Japanese anime community supposed to be less pseudo-elitist than the Western one?As in, they'll watch whatever show with enough promotion, rightAnd Spy Family got tons of promotionI am so confused
>>237720758You'd be surprised, they're not like westerners who blindly consume everything marketed to them
>>237719335>Using the loli to promote the show. Shameful
>>237720758>Isn't the Japanese anime community supposed to be less pseudo-elitist than the Western one?>As in, they'll watch whatever show with enough promotion, right>And Spy Family got tons of promotionThe manga was already popular before the anime. The advertising just added an extra boost.>I am so confusedThis is a shitposting thread. Nothing here sure be taken seriously. Unless you're trying to play the dumb one, by which I should tell you to fuck off if you are.
>>237720822>You'd be surprised, they're not like westerners who blindly consume everything marketed to themThat's true. I mean, Dance Dance Danseur is front and center in Shibuya >>237720720 and I doubt it's doing well in ratings.
>>237720557And Korea dominates the Japan's manga market by Solo leveling, Itaewon Class, and more which are better than Demon slayer,Spy family,Attack on titan and Jujutsu Kaisen. For Korean webtoon doesn't need dirty Fanservice unlike Manga to succeed. They only fights with Beautiful art and story. Korea is the Kurofune to Manga market.
>>237720557Link click could dominate Japanese anime market if it was on golden time.... it was a mistake to broadcast on Midnight for China.
>>237720972Have we reached peak shitposting?
>>237720557> it's lower than Curious George(2.1%) which is standing on lowest place.I know you are baiting but can't you read this part?
>>237721037En taro Admiral Yi. Korean webtoon is dominating the manga market just like Admiral Perry. For Korean webtoon doesn't need dirty fanservice(just like rent a girlfriend) to sell well. They fights fairly beautiful art and story. Unlike Japanese manga which needs dirty fanservice like swimsuit episode to win.
>>237720972>>237721075There is literally not a single korean manhwa in existence that can compete against chainsaw man when it comes to quality. korea will never have an author like Fujimoto.
>>237719562>Jeez just how much money did they spend for this?It's Shueisha. I'm sure they got money leftover. But it shouldn't be seen as out of the ordinary for anime companies to advertise in the center of Tokyo.
>>237721051>Kongming that highSo it actually is popular and not just /a/ being contrarian, I see.
>>237720972>>237721033>these two knockoff markets that wouldn't even exist without Japan is gonna take over Japan!!Right, sure. Whatever.
>>237721128Was solo leveling overrated as "Kurofune"(Black Tradeship)?

>>237721067Dude that means ONE in FIFTY households are turning it on. America hasn't had ratings that high since Breaking Bad ended. That's super high. America winning.
>>237721170Yeah. There is no Japanese game with metascore higher than Genshin since 2021. Genshin reduces MHW,DMC5,FF14,Dark souls 3,Sekiro,Elden ring into mediocre Shovelwares. West at least has starfield,Elder scrolls 6,Diablo 4,OW2 as cluster of Genshin killers.
>>237721037It's like the inverse bikinischizo.
>>237721170For No Japanese game have metascore higher than genshin(84) since 2021. Phil Fish was right. Genshin reduces DMC5,RE7,MHW,DaS3,Sekiro,Elden ring and FFXIV into mediocre Garbage.
>>237719048It's a shounen with little cross-demographic appeal. So no surprise there. It's probably doing better in streaming, like all anime for retarded teenage boys (read: battle shounen and isekai).
>>237721213>>237721294Genshin was not even the most popular game in Japan 2021.Also, it hasn't had new contents for months, anon ...
>>237720171They succeeded to make this anime as the biggest popularity in this season, but failed to attempt of making SxF the social phenomenon which follows SnK and KnY.
>>237719048>anime butt detectivewhat the hell is this?
>>237720520SxF is doing well in Japan
>>237719955Man I can't wait for thay garbage to flop
>>237721330>"It's a shounen with little cross-demographic appeal">a spy comedy has little demographicI like these posts that try to sound factual, but are just retarded as hell once you think about it.
>>237721441>5 starsContrarian Bros, how do we twist this to fit our narrative?
>>237721693Shill ratings obviously
>>237721648It literally does not have cross-audience appels, as it'd do better with non-shounen audiences if it had.I know you're trying to sound clever here with your hate on posts that sound factual, but you're being proven wrong by actual facts.
>>237720648Bitch, I saw what you typed. When I said you can't think, I mean to insult you. You seem like a lazy retard. You type slower than you think because you're an idiot. When you say you are too lazy to proofread, it also means you're an idiot. You compare not being able to tell if two sentences are correct to a "paper." Bitch, it's two sentences. You don't pay attention to any details, even easy ones. That's what it all means: You're an idiot.
This thread reminds me of that one guy comparing Yuri on Ice's sales to Looney Toones back in 2017.
How do the people seething in sales threads cope with reality? Like how do you see a manga and disc sales at the top of the charts and still jump at every opportunity to say is a flop?
>>237721977I'm not an amerikkkan.
is it Spy Family or Spy ECKS Family?
>>237719517They probably don't even see them like most people do with ads.
>>237721170>SSID set up for an ad for a game.Bet they are harvesting every packet that passes through this network.
>>237721051Half season already and it only accumulated 15k points. Look at previous seasons. Even isekaishit like Slime or ReZero had like 50k+ mid season
>>237719048Does this mean it's not popular and now I'm free to like it?
>>237720972>The Breaker 3 is almost certainly proven to be a failed comeback with New Korean format> "muh superior Korean" posting that sounds like it came out of /v/ is increasing all of the suddenIs this what a Damage control looks like ?

>>237722507Lol. Evidence is right there faggot. Scroll down to previous seasons.
Hey, i recognize that Phil Fish Chinese game poster from /v/, he is been doing this even longer than Bikinianon
>>237721865This >>237721051 is the total, so it's not cherry-picking one streaming service
>>237722544Those are not "mid season".
>posting and replying in a bait SALES threadnu-/a/ is that bad eh?
>>237719335kek, literally none of those people are looking at the ads. In fact most are facing away.>that bottom right picture>tumbleweeds.jpg
>>237721384This.No doubt SxF is the most popular anime in this season.But that popularity is not as much as Shueisha and medias were expecting.
>>237722879>I know exactly what these people are thinking when they see an anime billboard!!Also that last pic was a promo shot, but whatever.
>>237721384>but failed to attempt of making SxF the social phenomenon which follows SnK and KnY>>237722923>But that popularity is not as much as Shueisha and medias were expecting.The goal post is already in the parking lot.

Why is Love All Play so popular?
Spybros winning again
>>237723049>Winning>Very close to Detective Conan in this peak popularity time
>>237723049>This ranking is based on a weekly survey conducted by GEM Partners>Survey target Men and women aged 15 to 69 living in Japan>Number of respondents Approximately 7,000Don't use GEM, it's just a survey site.
>>237723042>Why is Love All Play so popular?Define "popular". If anything, much of it's popularity went to Natsuki Hanae's cat than the show itself. Also, why are you bringing this show up in the first place?
> televisionWho the watches television in 2022 other than small kids and old fucks?We have been getting shit from the internet for 2 decades now, get on with the times.I don't even watch SxF
>>237723286Because it's in the list at 1.5%, above Curious George and below Crayon Shinchan.
How did SxF incur the ire of shounen teens of this board?
>>237723490a bunch of discord groups with nothing better to do
>number fagging this hardTell me you're from /v/ without telling me you're from /v/.
well Yashahime had 4+ viewer rate on average and nobody cares about that anime
>>237723199But it surveys across the most streaming sites. >This ranking is 19 flat-rate video distribution services (ABEMA Premium, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV +, dTV, d Anime Store, FOD, Hulu, J: COM On Demand, Netflix, Paravi, Rakuten TV, SPOOX, TELASA, TSUTAYA. TV, U-NEXT, Animehodai, Disney Plus, Bandai Channel, Hikari TV Video Service) are aggregated across the number of viewers pt.The other ranking only uses a fraction of those sites
>>237723490Popular anime = easy target for shitposters. Doesn't get more simpler than that.
>>237719048Literally everything in the top 10 in that list is children's shows. Of course kids anime is going to have higher ratings than anime for teens or adults. This is a stupid comparison.
>>237723431Didn't even see that. Is this another Toriko case where is airs after another popular show? How does a badminton anime that is least interesting than Ryman's Club get that many viewers?
>>237719992This.People misunderstand but anime is still considered as show for children in Japan.If not children's show you can't get high viewing rate.The reason why KnY became that popular is because KnY has aspect as a children's show same category as Kamen rider.
>>237719270Live broadcast for a TV series is an obsolete format, why do we still tolerate it?
>>237723639The problem is they only ask 7000 people everyweek. Just use bilibili and rankstker.
>>237719517>>237719335It's honestly just embarrassing being an adult and seeing this shit taking up ad space in your commute to work
>>237719335More like, "What went wrong?"
>>237723716Ryman aired at 25:30 so it won't attract as many live viewers as something available at 17:30.
>>237723820see>>237719887God forbid they promote something isn't soulless garbage. Glad to see your kind are becoming the minority. Begs the question to why you're even here in the first place?
>>237722153>They probably don't even see them like most people do with ads.Yeah, some people even take time out of their day to seek out these billboards and take photos of their characters if they are there.
>>237723790That's literally the site I was referring to when I said it only uses a fraction of the streaming sites. A sample across all available streaming sites can still be accurate, only taking data from half of them in the first place cannot.
>>237723914>something isn't soulless garbage>WSJokay
>>237719048I'm so tired of the Spy x Family shilling, it's exhausting and everywhere.>>237719955The shilling of Chainsaw Man is going to be even worse, considered the ridiculous amounts both Fire Punch and Chainsaw Man have been shilled in the past.
>>237723974>some people even take time out of their day to seek out these billboards and take photos of their characters if they are there.mostly tourists who treat the place like the freak show it is.I seriously doubt the average working Japanese gives a shit about an anime billboard
>>237723974A fan of a series will notice the ad however a random salaryman who is not into anime at all will likely not even notice.
>>237719048I don't understand. I am experiencing some serious cognitive dissonance.
>>237721158>孔明が面白いというか、そもそもスパイがクソつまらん。つまらんというか面白くもつまらなくもない。ある意味つまらないより悪い空気アニメ>SxF is boring as fuck. To be more precise, it's neither boring or fun. This might be worse than boring. This anime is like air.Comment from Kongming thread.
>>237723845Still though, doesn't seem like the kind of show people would actually sit down and watch when it's on. It has to be leeching viewers from the previous airing show to get those kind of views.
>>237723914billboard advertising is by definition a soulless act, it's everything wrong with modern consumer culture, I'd rather every billboard was about some shitty food chain than to see things I like represented up there.
Why do you guys care if lots of people watch it or not? Serious question
>>237724072Jealousy. Shounentards and butthurt "oldfags" don't like thing more popular than their dead series. Especially when a SoL comedy manga is absolutely destroying their favorite series.
>>237723989>>237724007>>237724017>>237724051Saddening to see just how cynical this place has become. >I seriously doubt the average working Japanese gives a shit about an anime billboard>however a random salaryman who is not into anime at all will likely not even notice.And? Why do you care about what they think? Because you're just as broken as they are?>I'd rather every billboard was about some shitty food chain than to see things I like represented up there.Why? Are you that ashamed of your hobbies or something? Not everyone shares your bleak outlook on life.

>SxF opening 6.6M views>Kongming opening 6.6M views>Stone Ocean opening 20M>KnY S2 opening 84M>SnK Final opening 49M>JJK 2nd opening 30MLooking at this, SxF and Kongming opening song has almost same viewing.
A slice of life comedy manga absolutely ravaged cynical muh 90s and shounentards. Beautiful. Couldn't have happened to a better group of retards. Get fucked.
>>237724072Because some people get a rush on doomposting, no matter how inaccurate they are.
>>237724179And both are shit. spy x family opening is the most insipid shit ever and kongming meme dancing = its shit
>>237724181>walk into a gay bar>can't believe how many faggots are in my city now...you are a dipshit
>>237724196>Why else would I be here?Well I assume you'll be here because you liked anime, and not using it to air your 13-year-old nihilistic views of the world.
SxF is currently outselling Edgyutsu Kaisen and the anime hasn't reached the best episodes yet (punch tomorrow, Yuri visit soon). People will be absolutely malding next month.
>>237724297>calling tokyo a "gay bar">liking anime makes me a dipshitThis is /a/ in 2022 everyone.
So how does Curious George work in Japan is it subtitled or do they dub over it? I imagine they would probably dub over it but the subtitles couldn't be that complicated. I'm surprised they like it there. I wonder what other kids programming they import over there. I always figured Japanese kids have enough of their own stuff.
>>237724297>referring to /a/ as a group think placeBelieve it or not, /a/ isn't one person and doesn't hold one collective hivemind-like view of things. Many anime fans like cute and comfy SoL with a focus on comedy, and not your edge shit.
>>237724303How is ignoring an ad nihilistic? Is staying on 4chins all these years nihilistic? I still do enjoy anime however manga is often more so for me.
>>237724181Ironic weebs. They hide behind layers of irony, because being passionate about your hobbies nowadays is considered "cringe", as their twitter buddies say.There's also the shitposters who post bait just for the dopamine rush of receiving (You)s.
>>237724334you are a dipshit and retarded
Gate keeping anime and manga from normalfags is kind of sad in 2022. It's not like disney is gonna start making anime with brown and gay characters. Get over yourselves.
>>237724364>How is ignoring an ad nihilistic?Well if your first thoughts upon seeing an anime billboard are negative, then that's on you. But the fact you're sharing the same views as those who don't care about anime says a lot about you.>Is staying on 4chins all these years nihilistic?You're telling me it isn't?
>>237724383>being this mad about someone like anime and mangalol
>>237724344In Italy it was dubbed, probably in Japan it is the same.Children shows are always dubbed.
>>237724426>Well if your first thoughts upon seeing an anime billboard are negative, then that's on you. But the fact you're sharing the same views as those who don't care about anime says a lot about you.I never stated how I feel, I stated how I would expect a salaryman to feel when interacting with an anime ad. If I ever went and saw a series I like being advertised, I would probably photograph that.>You're telling me it isn't?It's not all doom and gloom on 4chins, I have quite a few good memories here. I've had a lot of fun talking specula with fellow anons. I still have good discussions here.
>>237724390>He calls niggers brown peopleKek. The only person bringing up gays and niggers is you, tourist.
Curious George has a boring training arc coming up, it’ll fall off the list soon
>>237719048Nothing surprise there. The monke has BTFO the vast majority of anime in ratings over the last 10 years.
>>237724197openings mean nothing. no game no life is at 200 million and it sure as shit isn't anywhere as popular as anything on your picture aside from kongming
>>237724181He's right. there's 24/7 anime billboards. at some point you'll learn to automatically ignore it and not register it on your mind.The average japanese isn't into anime or manga. atleast nowhere as much as an otaku. only the most mainstream stuff are watched by average people. shit like the ones in ur picture are not
>>237724390Netflix already does you dumb fuck
>>237724835youtube views* not openings
>>237724872Barely any affect on how Japanese create anime. Great job proving me right. Stop being paranoid and let more people enjoy this artform.
>>237724861>at some point you'll learn to automatically ignore it and not register it on your mind.Maybe, but there's still a good number of those who'll look up and point out that favorite series in the lights. >The average japanese isn't into anime or mangaKimetsu and One Piece beg to differ. Hell even the biggest box office releases in Japan are anime movies.>atleast nowhere as much as an otaku. only the most mainstream stuff are watched by average peopleNow you're just stretching the margin thin. >shit like the ones in ur picture are notIt's currently a top 10 seller in the manga charts, and that's even before the anime airs.
>>237725016>Maybe, but there's still a good number of those who'll look up and point out that favorite series in the lights.Yes but not many people. people will automatically ignore it>Kimetsu and One Piece beg to differ. Hell even the biggest box office releases in Japan are anime movies.Kimetsu is literally a cultural phenonem that got people who didn't watch anime or read manga into it. this is an exception not the rule. >Now you're just stretching the margin thin. How so? you think the average guy watched 40 seasonals or something? there's tons of people who don't watch anime or read manga. Its not some unknown thing. and once you go into more non-mainstream stuff the audience gets less. Manga sales reflects this as well.>It's currently a top 10 seller in the manga charts, and that's even before the anime airs.What's that even supposed to mean? even if it sells 1m per volume (which it isn't. its currently at 400k~) that's still 1m in a country of 120m people. there will be a ton of people who don't know it exists nor care about it.
>>237725091>watchedwatches>gets lessgets smaller.i'm retarded and sleepy. apologies for typos
>>237725091>people will automatically ignore itAnd? Why are they so important?>Kimetsu is literally a cultural phenonem that got people who didn't watch anime or read manga into it. >this is an exception not the rule.>Kimetsu being a phenomenon is an "exception" to you Whatever you say, I guess.>you think the average guy watched 40 seasonals or something?Well if you're gonna be hyperbolic about it, then sure why not.>What's that even supposed to mean?That it's a popular series currently.>even if it sells 1m per volume (which it isn't. its currently at 400k~) that's still 1m in a country of 120m people. >there will be a ton of people who don't know it exists nor care about it.Again, why are they so important to you? Why are you so adverse to the idea that anime is widely popular in Japan?
>>237725197>And? Why are they so important?Because you think they're some rare thing that happens every couple of months instead of 24/7 ads for different anime all the fucking time. which makes any normal person who goes out to automatically treat it as part of the environment at that point.>Whatever you say, I guess.Yes. Kimetsu sucess is literally an exception and data proves it. Not even One piece is comparable to it.>That it's a popular series currently.Its popular among people who are into anime/manga>Again, why are they so important to you? Why are you so adverse to the idea that anime is widely popular in Japan?I'm not averse. Anime is Japan's culture and its extremely popular there. Anime audience in Japan is probably much bigger than overseas despite being one country + massive increase in anime viewership overseas these past two years. But its still not "everyone watches anime". just like not every american watches capeshit or even GOT
>>237723490it's a shounen that's not a battle shounen and it's selling extremely wellit means they can't just ignore it or shit on it for being niche and/or popularit being a slice of life comedy manga that's obviously inspired by older shoujo manga is icing on the cake tooit's just more proof that the death of shoujo is basically 1:1 associated with the rise of shounen magazines publishing basically nongendered manga that seamlessly incorporates ideas from both older shounen and shoujo manga, diluting the strong shounen flavor of the magazinetl;dr shit shounentards love is being diluted by all of that girly shit that always had an audience that they thought died internationally after they got shelved to live action j-drama/movies
>>237725091>>237725197Also saying that a manga selling 1m copies per volumes is simply retarded, full stop. Especially for a country like Japan. That's like saying a musician selling a million records "means nothing". Because that's still a million people who went out and bought it, which in turns adds few hundreds of thousands more of those who now know thru osmosis via advertising.
>>237725302if you count random people vaguely knowing of the name is the same as watching or reading it than yes i guess.This also depends on circles. In school it would be much more known than say a bunch of middle aged dudes
>>237725253>Because you think they're some rare thing that happens every couple of months instead of 24/7 ads for different anime all the fucking timeIn actuality, it is. Those video billboards are expensive. >Anime audience in Japan is probably much bigger than overseas despite being one country + massive increase in anime viewership overseas these past two years. >But its still not "everyone watches anime".>"You may be right, but you're still wrong!!"That's all I'm hearing from you. I get it. Not "everyone" watches anime, with "everyone" meaning 100% of Japan. So I guess it's probably 90 to 95% of the country then.
>>237719048Who the fuck even cares about this shit?
>>237725494>In actuality, it is. Those video billboards are expensive.I don't know about the video ones. but the train ones are not. I don't have the data for both so i won't asspull some bullshit. But i'm still leaning on them being overused. seeing how i see pictures for it for different anime every season>That's all I'm hearing from you. I get it. Not "everyone" watches anime, with "everyone" meaning 100% of Japan. So I guess it's probably 90 to 95% of the country then.You're absolutely delusional if you think 90%+ of Japanese watch anime.
>>237720822With how the recent "Bubble" movie flopped (it's a great movie and it did bad in theatres), I get the impression that Japan is starting to get out of touch with the whole otaku thing en masse.In Japan itself, anime and manga are becoming a niche or so it seems.
>>237725558It was declining in 2017-2019 but has grown to insane levels after kimetsu. It declined back a bit but its still a bit higher than the lows. and hit manga sell a lot more than hit manga of previous years.So no it isn't really becoming more niche.
>>237720972Modern manhwas are unironically bad, if you said "Veritas" or sth from that era, I could have listened but Solo? Nah, trash.>>237721033>>237721294Chinese stuff belongs on /co/. Don't post Chinese media on /a/
>>237725580it is becoming marvelized like hollywoodthe big hits and sequels are dominating the discussion and overall revenue more than ever and the other shit is basically hung out to drymost anime films in 2024-2026 will be franchise films going forward; you can't count the films coming out soon because preproduction probably started on those years agoand tv anime is getting far more sequel and reboot heavy in the past couple years compared to 5 or 10 years ago
>>237725664>hits are dominating the discussionyesit was like that since ever. and its in every industry. popular thing gets more discussions than some niche stuff like dragon maid.As for the rest i don't think so. Anime is becoming profitable in itself and no longer is tied to manga or bd sales in some part. So there's a lot more going on for niche stuff than ever before. The problem is in the animation studios and the high shortage of staff and overwork. Practically every studio is booked for years. yet a lot of them get pennies if they aren't on the committee.Some people do think its going to collapse and if it does it'll be ugly.
>>237722031You read it as Spike's Family.
>>237725558Most sucessful movies in Japan are franchise movies. Stuff like JJK, KnY, Conan, Dragon Ball, Fate all have an already existing fanbase, while "Bubble" is a theater original. It will probably be more sucessful in the Netflix catalog than the Theaters.
>>237719048Look at the time they air. Comparing family/children cartoons aired in the morning/prime time against other anime is nonsense. These stats come from TV. Lately many people watch these late night shows through the net since it is way more convenient.
>>237719048>it has lower viewer that means it's shit>It's a flop it won't have a season 2>muh numbers!!Where have I heard this before?
>>237725558>With how the recent "Bubble" movie flopped (it's a great movie and it did bad in theatres), I get the impression that Japan is starting to get out of touch with the whole otaku thing en masse.Or maybe the movie was simply uninteresting? Or that it wasn't a Makoto Shinkai film?
>>237725549>But i'm still leaning on them being overused.>seeing how i see pictures for it for different anime every seasonIn your eyes, maybe. To some, it's simply a good advertising opportunity. More eyes = more potential fans.
>FLOP x FAMILY
So it's very popular in the west but does jackshit in Japan?
>>237724390disney makes edge shit rape anime instead
>>237719883Don't listen to that retard, you are indeed correct that 2-3 threads is normal for an airing show that has a lot of hype behind it like SxF does. Source: I'm not a newfag like him.
itt. seething Kaguyafags
>>237727146Yes, it's not doing kimetsu numbers so it's automatically shit according to /a/.
>>237719048Based. Fuck lolicons.
>>237727146Not at all. OP is a retard comparing a SxF to morning/prime time children's cartoon in an attempt to make it seem like SxF is doing poorly.
What show are contrarians going to use to look like epic rebels who don't follow trends after CSM airs?
yeah but where’s the man in the yellow hatSxF needs a man in a yellow suit and hat if they want better ratings
>>237719887You have never been to Japan. All the hard workers in the countryside, (real non shit non city Japan where the people are still Japanese and aren’t neets and corporate slaves) think it’s cringe.Even in car culture, the name of anime car wraps translates directly into something along the lines of “cringe to look at”. I’m sorry to tell you this but Japan isn’t what you think it is retard.
>>237727447oh andevery foreigner reading thisyou will never be japanese
>>237725558Dude the movie was trashWTF are you talking about
>>237727447>>237727511>YAMETE WHITE PIGGU, JAPAN IS MORE THAN ANIME AND VIDEOGAMES REEEEEEEE
>>237727246SnK, KnY, JJK were getting much higher viewing rate than SxF.
>>237719335>right beside Raiden thighsPeanut never had a chance
>>237725558>great movieNo, everyone who watched this movie said it's beyond shit.I don't want to rely on somebody's opinion, but this time I've never seen good reputation about this movie and it means something.
>>237725558It's the opposite. Bubble ha no otaku appeal and was targeted to normalfags.
>>237727447>>237727511>t. insecure old boomerLet me guess, your parents disliked you for liking anime and cartoons growing up, huh?
>>237727626>SnK, KnY, JJK were getting much higher viewing rate than SxF.see>>237727227
>>237728056Not only blockbuster such as SnK or KnYI remember few years ago Gundam and Sangatsu no Lion had more than 3% average view rate.
>>237719048WE CANT STOP WINNING MONKEY CHADS>>237719084He evolved
>>237723820>seeing this shit taking up ad spaceWhy would you give a shit about "ad space"?
>>237731058I have and I know you haven’t:))
>>237719955To be contrarian one has to have a disdain for something that is popular, and according to OP, SxF is not.
>>237727693If you really want Peanut to lose then Compare her with a good Chinese girl like Princess Li Cheng Ge and not generic garbage like Raiden
>>237731481Raiden is billion dollar waifu unlike her
>>237720503yes. charlie brown too.
>>237731591A billion dollar garbage that caters to people with a far worse taste than people who shills Spy X Family
>>237731591It's kinda sad knowing that a deranged Mauritanian has a much better preference in Chinese than the majority of Nu-/a/
>>237728035seems more like the usual ironic weeaboo shit rather than anything having to do with boomers99% of this board watches anitubers and trash taste these days and it shows
>>237719048It's almost like this soulless manufactured garbage is shilled to gaijins in an artificial manner and not actually that popular.
>>237719955Kill yourself Shueisha shill
>>237724197to be fair the opening for spy x family is literal dogshit
>>237719562>>237719718It was timing.It became kinda popular thanks to Episode 19 and then mass shilling campaign worked because it came out during the Covid 19 pandemic where Nips started panicking and turning into retarded consoomers because they thought they were gonna die.JJK is now popular and even Black Clover got a boost thanks to Nips chasing that high. When they go back and watch Kimetsu 10 years from now they will realize it was shit.On that note isn't it kinda strange that Episode 19 was what made it popular and the coronavirus is also numbered 19?
>>237719647The animation is better than any animu on air.
>>237719955Only when kino saw Emfs
>>237719048Thanks for proving my point OP. All those who shit on SxF, to mention what's popular now, and complain so much about it being shilled, are all just numerfaggots MAL/reddit/twitter tier shitposters desperately repeating the same bait for anything remotely popular over and over.And the worst part is that you "see it everywhere" because you all love the shit out of CrunchyRoll, go and click on anime related articles, watch anime reactors and live in twitter 24/7, nothing more pathetic than that
>>237734283>It became kinda popular thanks to Episode 19Wrong, every episode up to ep 19 got them more and more people interested. The ratings kept going up ever since they aired the first episode. The anime already had other fights with great animation, the reason why ep 19 was so praised was because of the emotional aspect of it. Then others wanted to know why it made people cheer for the characters and then saw the oportunity to join before the end of the season. >because it came out during the Covid 19 pandemic where Nips started panicking and turning into retarded consoomersWrong again, otherwise everything along with Kekmetsu would have been a glorius success and would have sold 5 million each but that didn't happen. Not to mention that the nips didn't really have a problem with Covid, you can look at Eva and what happened with Rebuild during that time if you care.>On that note isn't it kinda strange that Episode 19 was what made it popular and the coronavirus is also numbered 19?Ah shit, my bad you are a literal schizo
>>237723914>Manufactured Nu-JUMP garbage isn't soulless
>>237724181Nobody wants to see Anime ruined by normalfagsCase in point redditspacing tourists like >>237724374
>>237721051What website is this?
>>237725253>Not even One piece is comparable to it.One Piece is bigger overall. It was at the top for 20+ years and was a big success from the beginning unlike KnY.
>>237734779>WAAAAAAH NOOO DON'T WATCH MY CARTOONSSSSSSS NOOOOO!!! IT'S NOT LIKE I COULD IGNORE YOU OR ANYTHING YOU ARE LITERALLY FORCING ME TO CARE ABOUT YOU AAAAAAHoly shit kill yourself
I am happy because these means redditchainsaw rating will below 1%.
>>237725494>I get it. Not "everyone" watches anime, with "everyone" meaning 100% of Japan. So I guess it's probably 90 to 95% of the country then.OH MY GOD this is why people under the age of 18 should NOT be posting here.For reference, the highest selling Manga Magazine of all time is WSJ in 1995 with 6.53 million circulation.That basically means only 5% of Japan's population. Manga is much bigger than Anime in Japan.Do the math.
>>237721051Being only 2k ahead of stuff like Yuusha Yamemasu, Otome Mob or Daimaou that had next to no marketing is very pathetic to be honest.
>>237731481Literally who lol, why is this butthurt chink mentioning a random chink?
>>237719048wtf i love spyxfamily now
>>237722544Do you realize that ReZero and Slime has double the points because they have double the episodes, isn't it? The score in that page is accumulative per episode.
>>237735071learn english, dumb monkey.
>>237719335>Japan >FamiryToday I shall remind em
>>237734582The second and third winds following the pandemic was what made Kimetsu the massive success it became.Before then it became quite popular thanks to Ufotable but it was the 2nd and 3rd winds in 2020 and beyond that made it a giga-success.Eva is a legacy franchise that took forever to come with its 4th movie.I don't see how that is relevant at all.And for that matter I also don't see Kimetsu having the same staying power as Evangelion 20 years from now.
>>237725558>In Japan itself, anime and manga are becoming a niche or so it seems.Just look at Weekly Shonen Jump's circulation numbers.They FALL lower with each year.Zoomers will cope with "muh digital" all they want but the Manga Magazine is dying and that will have catastrophic consequences for the medium.
>>237725664>it is becoming marvelized like hollywoodLiterally this.A handful of manga sell well in their volume forms thanks to massive shilling but the magazines themselves sell less and less each year.There's almost true non-manufactured massive successes anymore.
>>237734921Kill yourself reddit
>>237735356That's a video game and basically forgotten at this point.
>>237734928I only see that happening if the CGI is equivalent to the flowers of evil anime
>>237721384>comparing SnK and KnY to a lighthearted SoL comedy while when when compared to other SoL comedies it does bring in the numbersok nigger
>>237727447yeah, sure, ok
>>237737361Is that in the very town where NNB takes place?
>>237737634Who drew it though? People who live there?
>>237737920the school is kept in shape mostly by donations by the fans of the show who make the pilgrimage to the old schoolhouse for flower viewing each springmy point is that even rural people know what brings the cash in and if it's some obscure child's cartoon with the target audience of man between the ages of 20-35 then that's what they'll pander to
>>237720503It may surprise you to learn that japanese kids too watch foreign cartoons and enjoy them.
What causes people to so desperately push the narrative that anime and manga aren't popular culture in Japan?
>>237727447>All the hard workers in the countrysideAll the 8.22% of the population?
>>237735450Wut, the extremely huge success was the anime, not the game predating it, that one was a complete failure, same as the second season of the anime.
>>237723820As opposed to?
>>237719048Spy sisters.. is it over?
>>237719995Keep that energy for every season then champ, don't burst a blood vessel though.
>>237720220>Then too many people started enjoying it for me like itUnironicly eat a bullet rn
>>237720503Japanese people can like stuff made outside of Japan
spy x family, more like sneed and feed.mangaka literally has to leach of some idol event to promote his failing work.
>>237727447>you will never be japanese
Japanese known for their good taste
>>237734928>I don't like it that makes it reddit
>>237725494>So I guess it's probably 90 to 95% of the country then.Go watch some of the videos in which they ask random people in japan if they watch anime, the vast majoitty said no.
>>237719048SxF is airing late at night and if you have been into anime for more than 1 week then you would know that they are expected to have "low rantings", Monkeychad literally beats 90% of anime in ratings.
Great thread A/
>>237724197SxF and Kongming have been uploaded like 4 weeks ago, seems retarded to compare them with Openings that had been up for months.
>>237719535>KnYKnY only went up in tv ratings after switching channels.
>>237734928>redditchainsaw rating will below 1%.And at 100% in the USA. COPE FAGGOT
>>237719335If you ever go to japan, you will see that this is normal, you see random ads for random animes eveywhere.There are SnK vending machines among lots of weird stuff.
