Naruto...........huh

What I said about romance is a fact though. Spending few episodes on romantic development and then simply cancelling it with no sensible reason isn't something good.
If anything, talk about differing tastes applies to you - after all, who was the one facepalming that someone didn't like second season?

Oct 14, 2012 1:19 PM by Progeusz

@Progeusz

Tastes differ. I still found S2 as good as first one. And episode about Shouko's and Yuji's past is my favorite(maybe because of Ef vibes in it's storytelling and visuals)

toriko is now kicking ass LOL

Oct 14, 2012 8:20 AM by hanayagi

looks like Naruto still popular in Japan...
and I really want to read Shounen Onmyouji Novel >///<

BakaTest is one example of adaptation went wrong. Given the huge popularity of the LN (voted best LN and the characters voted in high places in survey after survey) the sales of the anime is truly disappointing for the latest season.

I just hope this will not be the case for Haganai....

-_. Are you kidding me? The sales were twice less as for S1 but calling them "like crap" is too much. Most of the anime series have less sales. 4K average is normal and enough for making a sequel. ANd you make me facepalm. It was as funny as S1. People like you just hate that they add some real romance vibes instead of silly harem comedy.
Yeah, they added some romance vibes. And killed them completely next episode. If they were trying to go down the romance route, they should have the balls to continue, not bail out and preserve status quo in stupid manner. Also, some episodes in first half weren't too funny. Shouko and Himeji got extremely repetitive with their gags. Kudou was trying to save the series but there wasn't enough of her.
Second season was bad.
Main reasons:
Overuse of the same gags which caused them to get old quite quickly and episodes weren't as funny as in first season.
Making fans believe there is a place for romance and then slapping them in the face.

If it was first season that sold 4k, second one could be possible. When first season sold well and second did much worse, it's pretty obvious that third season wouldn't sell 4k but more like 2k.

Good going BakaTest :D

And Kokoro Connect only one volume? :|

Baka Test 3 will probably never come out. IDK why this LN is so popular but the anime ended up selling like crap, and the second season was un-funny as well.

All I care about on this list is Conan and Thermae Romae

In the cases of Haruhi... Both the anime and the LN sold astronomically, which is likely the reason the author is being such a LAZYASS, almost on the level of the High School of the Dead Mangaka

Cheering for Magi's success XD

Oct 13, 2012 5:11 PM by MagicFlier

GINTAMA

And, ah yes.....Magi. =) It was bound to happen. One episode in and the fangirls are already buying volumes 1-3 and 14. Volume 14 close to 200k already. I wonder how future episodes would do.



I think Magi's sales increase is from advertisement and pre-hype for the anime since the list is for Oct 1st-7th and Magi episode 1 aired on Oct 7.

I can't wait to see how much it increases as more and more episode gets released (hopefully pulls off a Kuroko).
