Incorrect. Bandai Visual, in cooperation with P.A. Works' producers as well as Lantis have coordinated a revival of the brand over the past couple of months. During that time, Bandai Visual re-authored their BD-Box and made available to the general public in a "standard release." The previous version was only available through Bandai Visual's site if they obtained 2,000 pre-orders. Said site did not report sales to Oricon, so there was no public knowledge of sales (or Oricon's "estimates") until today.

As for your comparison between shows, what do you mean? Average sales? 2-cour series are known for having a bigger drop off near the end due to 8-9 volumes from Oricon's numbers. We do not know the true amount of any of those title's sales, so it's a meaningless comparison. This was a good success for a re-release, but that's all it really means.

OMG the director,writer,seiyuus and OP band of True Tears are reuniting to work on a new romance anime!!.... oh wait the romance anime is just a promotional video for a city I guess the mayor was a True Tears fan!

And lol at that name, "true tours"!

The one major difference is that the chara designs are done by Tari Tari's chara designer.

So, each of P.A.'s biggest shows was streamed over the past few weekends. Let's see how people felt after the marathons for a small comparison. (Nico scale goes from "awfully good", "decently good", "average", "not good", "awful")
true tears

TARI TARI

Hanasaku Iroha (day 1/episodes 1-13):

Hanasaku Iroha (day 2/episodes 14-26):

She was the thematic core of the series. Even Okada wanted her to win, but the director pulled a fast one on us. Ofc we'd be mad .

Lol, like people care about petty stuff like themes.
Spoiler for T Tears:


Okay, never mind, that's too cruel. <3 to both of them, and that invisible girl.

Fast one? While Noe was the core of the show I think it wa pretty clear it was always going to be a Hiromi win, not hindsight since I argued as much back when it aired.

Back when it aired it was like

Hiromi fans -write essays about why she will win
Noe fans - she's moe! She'll win!

It felt like Anne Hatheway's win for best supporting actress in Les Miserables even though she can't actually sing that well.

Yes, it felt predetermined... However, I think the story clearly wanted to go in that direction, and hence the ending felt like a sudden pivot in the love triangle. I felt there was a disconnect between the writing and what the director wanted, and it seems interviews have more or less confirmed my suspicions.

This is the argument that just never ends.

Spoiler for True Tears ending:

I guess we can go to the TT forum for more, but I'd defend this point to the end, and it really has nothing to do with which heroine I liked better. To me, calling it a "sudden pivot" really undermines the whole story.

Anyway, I'd just encourage everyone to watch the show again knowing the direction things are headed and watch for the signs that we all couldn't see clearly the first time. It probably won't change at all who you preferred, nor should it. It's just about the way plot points tie together.

What's going on in this thread? Oh another True Tears shipping war discussion .

This horse has been beaten to death, the carcass eaten, the nutrients pooped out and fertilizing the ground it fell on, growing some plants from said nutrients, the next generation horse eating said plant, and that horse being beaten to death, rinse repeat. Does't help PA themselves are hilariously persistent in making obligatory True Tears cameos in every anime original show they've done post TT, still releasing image albums FOUR YEARS after the anime ended (last one was mid 2012 no joke), multiple releases of the True Tears anime itself and now doing reruns of their holy trinity (True Tears, Hanasaku Iroha, Tari Tari).

Am I the only that finds this absolutely hilarious, albeit in a ironic way?

Anyways, I'm still waiting (fruitlessly) for a English sub version of the True Tears bluray. I got the shitty Sentai Works DVD, but I only got it cause I wanted to support it. I have yet to even open it. As for Hanasaku Iroha and Tari Tari I'm waiting for ANY type of English release. Unfortunately, I'm not the type to spends hundreds of dollars on individual releases that aren't even translated in my local language. I got other maintenance and hobbies to worry about too...

Actually, there's another CD Box releasing in a few weeks, I kid you not. 5th Anniversary CD-BOX! (A compilation of all the music ever released for the franchise. So far...?)

(And yes, I think they must think that the franchise has more life in it still, as they (Bandai, Lantis, P.A.Works, etc.) keep trying to tie the new works back to it in order to give it even more longevity. With the regular edition Blu-Ray box released in January, there's still a chance it could be licensed again... but I wonder if it'd sell.)

You're welcome. Oh and the US DVD was by Bandai, IIRC.

I swear this is some kinda injoke within the production studio at this point.

Oh, I thought only the streams were licensed. Guess I was wrong. Time to find my wallet

And you're right. It was Bandai. I got it years ago as the True Tears + Sola bundle on Amazon. Not sure why I thought it was Sentai. Regardless both DVDs still have their plastic wrappings, unopened.
