Thursday updates are posted, if anyone is interested. dtshyk, if you were planning to do this to (sometimes you do, sometimes you don't) just let me know and I'll leave it to you. Not trying to take over your job!

Thursday additions: here
Full weekly list: here

Accel World Vol. 1 is 9,891.
Hyouka Vol. 2 is 9,178. Might pass Vol. 1's 3 week total next week.
Nyaruko Vol. 2 is 7,516.
Saki Achiga-hen Vol. 2 is 5,372.

Vol. 2 for Natsu-iro and AKB0048 and the other Spring shows did not rank a second week.
Great to see Hyouka's V2 didn't drop off. Pretty impressive I must say.

I heard it was slated for 48 episodes.

Recently, or just from those initial reports back when it was first announced? I've been hoping the four cour rumor was true but haven't seen it confirmed. TV stations aren't listing past episode 25 yet, but that doesn't mean much. I suppose it could also have a break in the middle, skipping a season or two before coming back for another two cour.

"Hoshide is scheduled to appear in an episode of the anime that will air in early November."

Its confirmed for November, at least.

I sure hope some of the profits from thise great Kuroko sales numbers go straight to a fond for season 2 ^^.

Fuck yeah Nichibros.

Fuck yeah AKB0048 OP.

I was surprised Nunnally in Wonderland even ranked. But then I thought about it, and wasn't anymore. SMH...

I swore I thought the Sakamichi no Apollon DVD & Blu-Rays came out this week. I guess I heard wrong.

It came out last week. DVDs did not rank, and BDs sold 2,037. The full list for last week is available here.

thanks jmal for always doing this every week. Greatly appreciated.

If you mean answering questions, no problem. If you mean posting these threads on MAL, dtshyk gets credit for that.


Oh, I must have over glanced it last week or something. Shame that it sold so low when I thought it was one of the most solid shows I've seen in a while.

And thanks to dtshyk for posting these threads every week, and for also doing the temporal anime sales rankings for each season.

When it was first announced I saw it on a CR thread it said it would have 48 episodes.

It was strange at first when I didn't see Uchuu Kyoudai on the list,but then I assume that means the 1st volume haven't been released yet.

Comes out in BD boxsets (and DVD singles but nobody cares about that), starting 9/26. First box is the first cour. Nothing is solicited beyond that quite yet. I still don't know how many episodes this show is supposed to be, but hopefully more than two cour.

Yay for Kuroko hope it gets another season. I don't like sports anime, but the characters here are interesting and I like the whole generation of miracles thing. The comedy is placed at the right moments too. Great action on the court it keeps me entertained and its not boring.

Looks like a slow week, with a few titles getting a boost in second week sales.

Fujoshi strong.
