Makes me sad to see how well Skip Beat is still selling, and yet another anime season will never have a chance.
Oh well, never say never..

I wonder how long it'll be 'til 3Gatsu gets an anime announcement. If we follow all previous winners of the Taisho Awards..
2009: Chihayafuru
2010: Thermae Romae
2011: 3Gatsu (It's long due you'd think!)
2012: Silver Spoon

Anyways, it might be a nice extra for the 'loss' of Chihaya, as it's also focusing on a rather 'niche' game.

Bokura Ga Ita still going strong. They shall confirm a second anime season already. >_<

I am slightly disappointed with Kenichi, seeing as it was bundled with the 1st ova. Hoping the next volume can do better.

Glad to see 3 gatsu no lion up there

Moyashimon's combined sales would actually put it ahead of Skip Beat.

A lot of people must be psyched for the second season.

Yay Uchuu Kyoudai. Hopefully it does even better when the anime starts! keen ffffuu

Must learn Japanese... must... BUY CHIHAYAFURU WHEN I CAN. AHHHHHHH. TT__TT

I need to read 3gatsu no lion. I really loved honey and clover, so, maybe 3gatsu is as good as honey.

Mar 28, 2012 6:24 PM by minimiau

I'm so incredibly happy it sells well even before it's anime starts.
