Why am I interested about Free?

No, no, I am not going to watch this swimming anime. But the real reason I am interested is....

The bottomline is always Blu Rays because this will make or break a studio. The ex-director of Haruhi was completely broken after his series, Fractale completely bombed at the sales (Vol 1 only sold like 900 plus units in 1st week).

For benchmark, most series will get sequels if the 1st volume release breach 4000 units in 1st week.

This is why I looking at the sales of this series with great interest. First time Kyoto Animation is aiming specifically at female audiences with series of this nature. Can they reverse the failure that they suffered for Nichijou?

Time will tell.
