Woah! Such a slow week...
Anyway, glad to see Accel World singles selling well, those are very good songs.

Well it was a good series if there isn't good follow up sales, well have to see.

I wouldn't "hell yeah" about 1,645 copies... that's dismal. Even if you add DVD, it's less than 2k.

I'm just glad it's actually getting a few sales, I know that the numbers are not great but hopefully it can gradually grow, one can hope

May 24, 2012 12:15 AM by Hisokaissneaky18

Inu x Boku doing fairly well.

May 23, 2012 7:03 PM by Ardamaeus

Ben-to number 3 HELL YEAH!!
SVD in 8th isn't bad also :D

May 23, 2012 3:08 PM by Hisokaissneaky18

:O A little disappointing i was hoping 'Yasashisa No Riyuu' would do a little better well i suppose im happy for 'Nisemonogatari' and 'Chase the World'

Wow Taketatsu Ayana Image Disc sold nearly 5k copies? Looks like she is very popular in Japan.
Yeah, it was surprise for me as well.

Tsurezure Monochrome is one of the catchy songs, too bad it didn't made it to #1.

May 22, 2012 2:41 PM by CapnDavid

Not enough Pirates sales.

The rest doesn't interest me.

Oh Ben-To, you deserve so much more. Sad to see that the show isn't doing well; and that is mildly said.
Yeah, I agree. It's a shame it's probably not gonna sell well enough to warrant a second season. It will probably struggle to break even..

At least studio made success with their next work

Oh~~, it's been a a while I went to that site (ever since the person doesn't make videos anymore of those results). It's a good site.

Someone else who watched them! The weekly videos were great, though to be honest, I liked the ones from the previous guy (qwysn607) even better. A shame they all eventually ended up stopping doing these one after the other... and that no one's picked it up after keroro00inovatorrk. I used to religiously wait for that one video every week for like 2 years. D:

Yeah, I watched the ones from qwysn607, too!! I liked the previous guy better because they had from 100 to 1 (and not 50-1 like here and Oricon site), and Keroro, too(?) (I was a bit confused about the style if it was based on the same weekly chart or not).

No Guilty Crown

You're going to have to wait until next week's rankings in order to see vol5 of GC since it just came out today.

May 22, 2012 12:52 PM by Anime_Name

No Guilty Crown

Mouretsu Pirate at comment.

Also it's great too see May'n's single is still thriving on the charts. And I think Kotoko's single also made it if I'm not wrong ending the week at around 9k sales.

Tsuritama OP did better than i thought

Kinda expected but really Japan?

Fap material. The BDs have more fanservice than the TV version. I remember seeing pictures where they show more of Kabaru's body, the other ecchi scenes are upgraded as well.
