    Interesting. It's unfortunate that hte Kingdom anime is the worst thing to happen to the series and destroyed any chance of becoming a huge hit in the west, it was seriously that bad. At least with no anime, there's a chance at some point it would be animated and be animated well, at this point we're stuck with Pierrot's trash and it would likely be at least a decade before another studio gets a shot at animating the series from the beginning. It's nice that Kingdom does get a nice amount of coverage in Japan though.

    Yeah, the only solace is that it's consistently topping the ranks of it's magazine week in and week out. Volume sales aren't that good though.

    Tokyo Ghoul and Terra Formars are two series which compete with Kingdom in the same magazine but their animes gave them exposure and nice boosts. Sigh...

    Actually, Kingdom's volume sales aren't bad at all. For reference, it outsold Toriko last year. But as you said, anime exposure is critical for a series and Kingdom's anime was detrimental. I mean it's great that an anime variety talk show is talking about Kingdom, but the anime is not what you want to be talking about when it comes to Kingdom.

    The anime was a perfect storm of disaster. The first half of the first season had animation that was so bad, it was a literal turn off. When I first saw it, I honestly thought my flash player was acting up. Then add in the fact it airs on a network that has a stricter censorship policy. You can't have a series like this be censored even more than it has to be. Unfortunately, it seemed Pierrot's idea was to market the series as a shonen, and it doesn't seem to work. Part of Kingdom's charm is the goriness and the seinen elements, even though it does feel very much like a shonen in many ways. The fact there's furigana on the title cards seems to reinforce that, but that may be standard for all seinen series, I'm not entirely sure. It was just such a glorious fuck up in so many ways. The only decent thing about the series is the fact the seasons were quite lengthy, at over 30 episodes each.

    Now I don't know if Hara had any say in this, if he knew about this animation experiment Pierrot tried as well as the more shonen direction Pierrot went with, but I'd be beside myself if I were him. This anime would've been so fucking good had a studio like Madhouse animated it and given it the overall TLC it deserves. It's just infuriating as a fan to see a great series get shat on by the anime, and it happens occasionally when it never should. And, as I said, the likelihood we'll get a HxH style total reboot that handles the series better just isn't very likely, at least not for the foreseeable future.

    But as you said, at least the series does well in the magazine weekly, and despite the poor volume sales compared to something like Terra Formars, it still sold decently in 2014.

    I'm kinda curious what the talk show is going to talk about specifically.

    It's still not proportionately competitive to OP though, as I consider Kingdom to be the OP of Young Jump. Even things like Magi and FT are outselling Kingdom iirc. Damn anime.

    He probably didn't, I was told that manga authors don't really have a say in choosing animation companies and still cloudy about if they have any say in production. Thank goodness they haven't corrupted the Coalition Arc yet.

    I'll try to post info about that when I come across it.

    The thing is that shonen seem to be more popular by default. I mean if you look at the top anime/manga series in the past 30 years, like 90% of them are shonen. Obviously there are a few exceptions like Berserk, Vagabond, and Tokyo Ghoul, but the overwhelming majority of big, major series are shonen series. So it doesn't surprise me at all that series like FT and Magi outsell Kingdom. However, what does shock is when series like Tokyo Ghoul and TerraFormars outsell Kingdom, as they're in the same magazine as Kingdom and far newer.

    I think if Kingdom ever gets an official English release and some of the bigger anime/manga reviewers on the internet start reviewing it, it'll gain popularity in the west. Unfortunately, as stated, there isn't a really great anime for more casual anime/manga fans to fall back on. But likely the biggest reason Tokyo Ghoul and TerraFormars got official English releases is because of the anime.


    I think the moral of the story is if Toei or Pierrot come offering to make an anime adaptation, you run the fuck away.

    I'm curious if/when Kingdom gets another season, as I do believe the next season will involve the coalition arc. iirc the first two seasnos were about 18 months apart, so you'd think if another season does air, it would be in 2015 at some point. But god damn I wish a new studio can take the content and just start from scratch from the beginning.

    Yeah, I guess you have a point there.

    In addition to the anime, I think Kingdom isn't the type of stuff that'll become popular in the West, seeing it's a historical fiction about a rather obscure era of Chinese history, well obscure in the West rather. Although it's more shonen-y than most seinens, I believe the content it covers holds it back.

    Definitely. It'll be a dream come true if Kingdom manages to get another studio to animate it. At least they didn't rub salt on the wound by having an "original ending" to the second season.

    That said, I'll be posting volume sales info as well, for comparison.

    Here's something that can help you guys make sense of the numbers:

    Source: http://apforums.net/showthread.php?t...=1#post3473816

    Per volume basis:

    <10k -> doesn't(normally) appear in the Top 50 Oricon list.

    ---
    10k -> Entering niche popularity. Profitable and reliable for the author(around 5k dollars per volume), but nothing especial.
    25k -> Niche series(12.5k dollars/volume).
    50k -> Great niche series(25k dollars/volume).

    ---
    100k -> Entering mainstream popularity. Normally considered the Minimum for a Weekly Shonen Jump series(50k dollars/volume).
    300k -> Mainstream series(150k dollars/volume).
    500k -> Great mainstream series(250k dollars/volume).

    ---
    700k -> Entering the super stardom (350k dollars/volume).
    1M -> Super stardom(500k dollars/volume). Last year, only 4 series reached this place(One Piece, Attack on Titan, Naruto, Kimi ni Todoke).
    >2M -> Mega stardom. Only One Piece is able to do this. Attack on Titan does close within a year time span with 1.9M, so can also be considered as such.(Oda earns around 1.5M dollars per volume).
