I think Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. will be the next hit(don't ask me why).
I think i read somewhere saying that it will be getting anime or so(not sure).

Mar 21, 2012 6:38 PM by Beedlebud

I hope Hiyokoi gets an anime adaption a special wasn't enough to satisfy me. xD

It sounds like a great slice of life series I need to get around to reading it.

My thoughts exactly. I'll have to read the manga, I don't think the anime ending will satisfy me. But great to see it doing so well, and Kuragehime too.

Mar 21, 2012 5:39 PM by Pullman

Chihayafuru has 16 volumes, holy crap ?!!! Eden no Ori doesn't sell buckets, but still good to see it in the charts, love it.

Mar 21, 2012 5:15 PM by Zhou
