Natsume still selling good is all I want.

Besides that the autumn sales are still the same. (Good) Franchise, Franchise, then a lot of crap and then the good and decent shows.

Need to check out Tamayura though.
The modding has ruined the forums and continues to do so.
Bye.

Gonna be a pretty stacked week next week. Ano Natsu, High School DxD and Inu x Boku should be at the top.

Papakiki is at a little over 4000

Kimi no Yell was pretty good, YuiKaori<3, Kaori's getting the spotlight this season since she has a big role as Madoka in Rinne.

And probably even more exposure as Kanna in AnoNatsu, who seems to be the most popular character, at least for fanart. This is a very very good season for her and I hope to hear her voice in many more roles.


I want an anime with both Yui and Kaori with main voice roles, I might be asking for far too much though.

As for Kanna getting a lot of fanart, well Lemon made that possible because many instances are due to Lemon making her drunk.

It's got to happen eventually. They've both proven they're not just cute but also genuinely skilled, and they've been in the same show before (Maid-sama and the upcoming Saki spinoff, but no not as leads), and of course they've got the whole Stylips/YuiKaori thing going on. I bet it happens within the next few seasons, probably as part of a Stylips promotion, like Saki but as leads not supporting.

As for Kanna getting a lot of fanart, well Lemon made that possible because many instances are due to Lemon making her drunk.

And we thank her for it. <3 R/Lemon is definitely my favorite character, Mio second, but Kanna is easily next. Ishihara has done such a damn good job in that role, even better than her also awesome Madoka.


You took the words right out my mouth.

Good to see Pirates keeping up - not the most briliant result but hopefully it will be at least stable
most certainly I'll be helping in it :D

10th place of Tamayura is still nice to see - plus that other volumes are selling quite well

*1, *,962 1,127,032 My Neighbor Totoro
*3, *,429 *,477,177 Kiki's Delivery Service
*5, *,365 *,747,517 Castle in the Sky
*7, *,312 2,368,858 Spirited Away


nice nice
but probably when our kids will be using some future version of MAL they will be still seing Totoro on the list ;)

lol I guess you didn't see all the one ratings that the so called "fanbase" gave AGE's DVDs and Blurays on Amazon Japan out of spite huh? I consider myself loyal since I never once bashed AGE for fucking retarded reasons or giving it 1 star ratings trying to make Sunrise loose money. =/ Looks like only 2,000 people are loyal fans and are not fucking morons bashing it to pieces.

The only Gundam I hate is 0079 mostly cause the story and characters bore me. The art is outdated, but that is to be expected since it is from the 70s. The other Gundam series I watched I either loved or found to be decent.

It was planned as split cour from the start, so they'd already greenlighted a second cour long before we got sales numbers.


I doubt it will get anymore seasons after this one though. Which it is a shame its a very great slice of life series and I love the art. The only thing that bugs me is that the characters look cross-eyed.

Again, when it's getting so much bashed, there are even quite a bit of fans who are willing to deviate so far away from what they are used to. if you will check within the fanbase they have stayed liking the older gundams(ie seed) still today

Such as in the Newtype top 10 character poll, Kira yamato is still in the top 10 after TEN YEARS!!!!

You'd be right. It cost almost $500.
