Madoka is on the lists, it's a good sign, however the future of that anime is uncertain and I can sense the almighty cancellation coming more and more each day it doesn't air, I can see this ending up like Disaster Report, production of DVD/BD stopped completely and permanently and the anime no longer airing.

O_o

Disaster Report 4 was a PS3 game that was cancelled for obvious reasons. I imagine that it was a much larger financial burden than whatever OVA/series that was in the making.


The entire Disaster Report series ceased production completely (as of today the whole series is out of print), it is much worse than what you are saying and Madoka has a very high chance of becoming out of print and airing canceled.

Yay Madoka =D, I really hope that even if it is canceled airing, hopefully they will still release the final 2 episodes on DVD but I have that bad feeling also x.x

Good to see both Madoka entries.


Kyubey does not like this. The longer people remember him the harder it will be to get contracts from girls and he cannot meet his energy quota. Such trouble, this Urobochi character.

/人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\

InKyubeyTa jokes aside, the popularity even when Japan looks more and more like a Walpurgisnacht went thorugh it means that the last 2 episodes *should* be out soon.

Good list up there ;)
Hope the DVD and BluRay's sales would eventually get better!~

the DVD and BluRays sales are low this week, must be the economic impact of the Japan 2011 Disasters
