Blue Exorcist sales and profits

The only reason why 90% of anime series never get a release date for more seasons is the lack of money and profit.  lets critically analyze the situation of sales and figures of Blue Exorcist.

How well the blue-ray of Blue Exorcist sell?

The blue ray of Blue Exorcist sold almost 12,700 copies per disk. It is a pretty good business for 2011.

The number was only 2,200 copies per disk for season 2, excluding English release of Blue Exorcist blue-ray.

Solid Blu-Ray sales always provide basis for a new season. It is just like an additional bonus.

There is a huge difference between the sales of both season which is not a good sign.

Blue Exorcist season 3 release date

How many copies of  Blue Exorcist series have been sold?

Volume 26 of Blue Exorcist sold 230,000copies. And volume 27 sold 200,000 copies, which is very low as compare to previous. Like volume 10 sold 730,000 copies.

The sales of volume 27 were not bad but it wasn’t that good at the same time. Season 2 didn’t prove worthy as it has no appreciable effect on the sales of manga series.

How many copies are there of Blue Exorcist in print?

Till February 2022, there are 20,000,000 printed copies of Blue Exorcist . The number was 17,000,000 in 2017, now it should have crossed at least 20million.

Fortunately, Blue Exorcist is among the top 100 selling series. Unfortunately, it will not get into top 50, as it is on a break and the team is busy with other projects.

How well the movie is doing at the box office?

Blue Exorcist movie made 4.5 Million dollars. The number is crazy.

In 2013, Blue Exorcist series was enjoying peak time.

What is the number of merchandises for Blue Exorcist ? 

The number of figurines is 60 which is not a bad number , and the pieces of merchandises for this series are 500. The number is decent enough. The figurines were ancient version with very poor quality.

Check out the beautiful figures from the series like Rin Okumura DXF Figure and *Mephisto Figure*.

Now it’s clear that overall series made huge money but 80% of it was from figurines and merchandises and season 2 did nothing special. So, release of Blue Exorcist Season 3 can be an issue.

Blue Exorcist season 3 Release Date 

If we see as of now, there is no update about the release date of Blue Exorcist season 3. It seems like we will never get any news about the release date of Blue Exorcist season 3. And the reason is the lowest sales of season 2.

We should not expect season 3 anymore, as there is no source of money for this series.

The reason why this series is facing decline is season 2 came out after 6 years of season 1. Also season 1 and original ending while season completely turned the story.

Usually it take only 2 years for the release of new season of any series, as fans start following new projects and lose their interest in the series that take long breaks.

I believe during six years anime series lost all its fan base, that was major failure of season 2.

I have also heard that half of the new season is done, but it does not seems to be released ever.

Official Twitter account of Blue Exorcist is also showing no follow up.

I will give an update if I will get a release date from the official Blue Exorcist Twitter account.

Check out the trailer of the movie.
