If it's Kana, it can't go wrong. Glad that Yui Ogura's "Raise" is selling, one of my favourite OP/ED songs from this season of anime. Plus the other track, Pon de Fighting, is just as awesome. I guess the AW OP2 Burst The Gravity CD will be on the next chart, looking forward to seeing the results for that.

That Totoro/Grave of Fireflies Combo better get a Region B or All Region release, want it so bad.

Jul 25, 2012 4:54 AM by pattyhentaimoe

Good to see Spice and Wolf made the list at least. I'm hopeful that if the boxed re-release of Season I and II sell well, they'll be encouraged to push a Season III out. Here's to hoping!

How this LN named in english? Could I find it ot MAL?

The problem is that KyoAni never makes more than one series per season so making one delays all other at least till it ends airing.
It's called Beyond the Boundary. More info here and here

I'm hoping KyoAni adapts it. Their upcoming anime Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! was from a novel that received an honorable mention by KyoAni in 2010, and Beyond the Boundary also received an honorable mention last year.

They're also the ones that released the novel itself so I'm hoping that increases its chance it will get animated by them just like Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!.

Waiting (too long) is very risky. Interest fades fast when fans have a hundred or more new shows to watch every year, because brains (not to mention wallets) can only process so much. If you wait, you have to count on the fandom staying stable or increasing during that time, and that's not true for many franchises. Particularly when the original source material has dried up, as it has in K-ON!'s case.

Of course it all comes down to how long "too long" is. K-ON! is undoubtedly far more resilient than most late night anime, both in the size and fervor of its fanbase.
True. As you said, it's far more resilient than most anime. However, I think a 2-3 year break is good for everyone. Too much exposure can be bad and 2-3 years shouldn't hurt it that much considering KyoAni's prestige.

Heck, Haruhi's second season released 3 years later yet still managed to sell 20k avg ( Even with EE lol ) so I wouldn't be too surprised if they came out with a season 3 of K-ON 2-3 years from now and it still managed to sell 20k+.

They're still a small studio by industry standards, and still don't work on more than one or two projects at a time. And they put everything they've got into giving each series they animate the highest possible production values. Whether that's three people talking in a room or a massive battle, the craftsmanship is evident.
Agreed. That's what I love about them; they give each anime they release their best. It's exactly why a studio like them needs to branch out into other genres!

LOL @ K-On. What a surprise.

Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies up there though. WOOT.

Grave of the Fireflies came out on Blu-ray? I wonder if any fansub will pick it up... I'm quite curious about how it looks, there are some remasters of old movies that look quite phenomenal all things considered.
Me too. I'd like to see that.

Movie was much better that S2. And I know that it would get this much sales. Just that I don't really like K-On. It's only "medicore" for me so I feel bad that it could make KyoAni wish to make more K-On while there are a lot of better thing they could continue or make.
I'm pretty sure KyoAni has more than one team working on different projects.

With the way the movie ended and its huge success, I wouldn't expect another season ( If any ) for 2-3 years. Many consider the movie a solid ending to the series despite the manga continuing on to their university lives, so KyoAni would be wise to not 'milk' the franchise further until hype dies down a bit.

You're right about one thing though; there are a lot of better things they could make. KyoAni has so much talent and quality in their projects and I really want to see them branch out. Take this video for example:



That was just a commercial to promote a LN. Whether it's an actual series they're making remains to be seen, but as you can see from that video they have SO MUCH potential to make EPIC anime.

Is this K on movie the same as The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya.You know like both animes have two season and they only show character development in movies?


nope there's basically no character development in anything of k-on.


Wrong. There's MUCH character development in movie and mainly at the end of the second season.
