Its not about quality, its about appealing to possible buyers. Just look at Tiger & Bunny this season. Its not that good, but because its mecha, it sells great

T&B is not mecha at all, it's selling because it's good.


Or, it's selling because it's fujoshi bait. You can probably chalk up about 70% of the sales to that. & tbh, it's not all that good.

I would, except fujoshi don't own BD players, unless they all suddenly went out en mass and bought them in the past two seasons, the majority of T&B buyers are male. Fujoshi also don't explain why it's one of the most discussed anime on 2ch. Not to mention there has been virtually no homolust at all. Face it, T&B is good therefore it sales.

Never going to understand the amount of damage control or hate IS is getting, well life goes on...

Yay~~ (By the way, it's "Boku Quest", not "Ore Quest")

Oh, and top one (not listed in the list) is the newest OP to Detective Conan "Don't Wanna Lie"!!

I'm probably gonna start believing in black magic If people keep buying IS Infinite Stratos.


I don't understand all the confusion over good sales for Infinite Stratos.

1. Its Mecha
2. Its got cute girls
3. Its based on a best selling novel

Mecha alone is guaranteed at least 10-15k sales. Adding cute girls and already having a big established fanbase with the novels add a lot more sales.

What's up with blu-ray outselling DVDs? Aren't blu-ray players more expensive?

DVDs are an antiquated technology. A Blu Ray player can be had for the same price as a DVD player these days and when DVDs and BDs are nearly the same price in most cases there is no reason not to get the higher quality version.

Luckily for you, they sell VHS x Blu Ray players so you can watch your antique media.

No one buys anime DVDs any more.

Feels good to know I'm one of the thousands who bought the Tiger & Bunny bluray.

wow My Neighbor Totoro is still selling

Jun 7, 2011 6:36 AM by Mr_Gutts

Not surprising to see Madoka.

Good to see it selling <3

I'm surprised to see A-Channel selling so well. It may end up at 5k, when I expected it to be one of those shows that was below the Manabi line.

Jun 7, 2011 3:07 AM by RyanSaotome

Both Vol.1 and Vol.2 of Madoka still selling well pleases me.
