Oh I keep forgetting about that, since it's taking forever to get solicited. But yes, 2ch has that predicted for over 10k and that seems quite probable to me. Only question is if it holds consistent or has massive drops like AoEx or D.Gray-man. But with a high enough first few vols, even dropping below 10k for most of the run can still get a 10k average.
Even adding Magi (+SAO) that would only make 6 shows over 10k this year, quite a drop from the last few.
2008 - 13
2009 - 11
2010 - 11
2011 - 15
2012 - 4
A-1 is also on track to beat Sunrise by next year... right now.
Breakdown by studio:
Sunrise - 14
Kyoto Animation - 10
A1 Pictures - 9
A-1 goes above KyoAni with 11 shows over 10k once you factor in SAO + Magi. That will definitely go to 12 with OreNo 2 next Spring... Uta no Prince-sama 2 is also in that season... their winter shows in Vivid Red and Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru could be more potential 10kers.
A-1 could easily put out second seasons of Sword Art and Magi Fall 2013 or Spring 2014, more than enough source material....
