That's remarkably good compared to the last outing by Studio 3Hz, the excellent but quirky Flip Flappers. The first release for that show sold just under 900 copies, and it declined from there. I just want to see the studio do well, even if we don't get another season of Princess Principal. They remind me of Brains-Base back when it first started with unusual, but well-produced shows like Kure-nai and Baccano!.

Finally finished the last couple of episodes. It was pretty "meh" for the most part but there was a heart to the story and the characters and I can appreciate that. The finale was wholly unsatisfactory to say the least though I'm not sure I'd bother sitting through a second season even if they do make one.

Not even close. According to interviews with anime producers they need around 4500 to break even. A moderate hit is around 7k.

Still, 5400 is good, and it's probably gonna reach around 6k eventually.

Picture Drama! A short but funny debate that gets turned on its head at the last minute.

Tachibana and 3Hz announce six theatrical films continuing the Princess Principal story will be released in 2019. "The project will be an entirely new work (as opposed to a compilation) that tells a story after the final television series episode."

Why do you call it "milking" when they are producing six entirely new episodes? It's not like they are just re-cutting the existing material into a movie. Surely 3Hz is allowed to earn some money, right?

Here I bring you good news, and the first reaction is to bitch.

I think that only really applies in a situation with two criteria.
1) The series being milked is widely critically acclaimed and an enormous success (Princess Principal is neither - it just did reasonably well)
2) The original series is a complete story and any expansion is unnecessary (admittedly this one is more subjective but I think a lot of people can agree that the TV series never really resolves a lot of things in a satisfactory manner. The director seems to think so as well)

Also, what SeijiSensei said.

If that kind of thing wasn't allowed, half the internet would shrivel up and die of disuse.

Oh great.

For one what I said was meant kinda as a joke.

But on the other hand, while the news that the story will be continued is nice, I'm not a fan of this new trend of turning seasons into films, mostly because then it takes YEARS for you to actually see the entire season.

When the Japanese Blu-rays are released, English fansubs will follow soon thereafter.

I don't know whether Amazon would buy the streaming rights again though. PriPri has only about 50 reviews there compared to 150-200 for shows like Re:Creators and Inayushiki, and 442 for Made in Abyss.

I also cannot buy a licensed physical copy of Princess Principal here in the US either. Looking around there is a DVD for sale which looks like a bootleg to me. On the other hand, there's a English fansub of a rip of the Japanese BDs floating around out there.

Nothing remains unavailable for long these days.

Well, in the case of movies, it remains unavailable untill the BD comes out and someone subs it (if subs aren't included), which can take a while.

Another trend that may contribute to this pattern of release is found in this year's report from the Association of Japanese Animators. Animated features have become a much bigger share of the Japanese box-office in just a few years. Anime box-office revenues constituted 29% of the total in 2011, then grew to 36% by 2014. In 2015, the share of box-office going to anime jumped six percent to 42% and grew to 44% last year. The expanded willingness of Japanese movie-goers to watch animated features may make the TV-first/movies-next method of production more common.

I see some woes about availability; this series is now available for streaming on Hidive.

BTW, Dorothy, the older girl masquerading as a teenager reminds me of the Agatha Christie book, Cat Among the Pigeons. SPOILER If Hercule Poirot worked for the enemy spies, he could quickly identify her by her knees...
