TBS Holdings, the parent company of the Japanese television station TBS, revealed its financial results for the first quarter of the 2011 fiscal year. 1.8 billion yen of of K-ON! anime shirts and many other character goods like mobile phone straps, etc – you name it they have it, were sold!

Home video sales and licensing rights for the anime itself are not counted towards that 1.8-billion-yen total. The financial results cover the three-month period from April 1 to June 30.

I do wonder how well home video sales and licensing rights are. Because if the figures are not even 10% of the 1.8 billion yen that the character goods brought in, it’s really pathetic, and you can just see how many fans actually bother to purchase the original animation. I don’t buy the original animation simply because I want my subtitles XD. Well but I did contribute to the 1.8 billion yen for character goods :3.
