Those top100 lists are godly, I hope they'll be a norm from now on.

Yes, the Oricon list extending to 100 BDs should be a permanent change. Just as important is Oricon tracking data for BDs up to, it looks like, 200. So even if we don't see that in the weekly lists, it'll still be there getting counted in case a title reappears in the top 100 later on, or ranks in mid-year or yearly lists.


So there is hope I will see Sukitte Ii Na Yo there after all, sigh...

Is this your first autumn anime season?

K is over 9000!

Or maybe *gasp* they do shows they like/want to?
Maybe they run out of new ideas.

Since the great majority of anime are still adaptations, it's not usually up to the animation production studio to come up with ideas. It also seems a little harsh to say they're "out of ideas" after just two original shows that only share a limited degree of similarity. I'm not saying I necessarily want them to make more like that - I dropped both of the shows in question. But I don't think it has anything to do with not being able to come up with anything else.


One cannot simply re-create an anime that is similar to Angel beats plot because of how complex it's story-line is, that's probably why?

Well an anime is called an original piece for a reason...

New additions: here
Full weekly list: here

Full list is up.

Top 100 BDs lists are friggin' amazing.

Chuunibyou tops 17k.
Psycho-Pass tops 8k.
Hidamari is mere inches from 10k.
K Vol. 1 is over 9k, and all four volumes rank. 9k for Vol. 1 is a pretty big deal, it was only 5.2k first week.
Updates for Hidamari, Darkness, LB, SAO, Hyouka, even the Strike Witches movie.

Wow, I'm really happy for K over 9K!?? XD and Chuunibyou is inching closer to 20K its sales are way better than Hyouka's eventhough I prefer the latter

As much as I'm glad that PA Works Hanasku Iroha I mean Tari Tari sold well, I'm dissapointed that this will only encourage them to make more shows in that vein. Slice of life shows are already crowded as is X ( More shows akin to Angel Beats plox!( I know it has a slice of element component to it but the show over all had a different tone to it than its previous works

Moyashimon... I'm sorry your sales are so low....
By that logic, wouldn't they make more shows like Angel Beats instead of Tari Tari/Iroha? Angel Beats easily sold double what Iroha and Tari Tari sold COMBINED, so why would they be encouraged to make more shows like Tari Tari?

Suprised to see Psycho Pass v1 at 7k! Grats to Noitamina for having a hit, been a while since since Guilty Crown since a Noitamina show hasn't sold that much on the 1st volume

I still haven't watch Girls Und Panzer. It must be really good.

Tari Tari? Really? What is this nonsense?

The show was great, so i dont see any surprise there, and it's definitely not a nonsense.

Glad to see GirlPan adding a good amount again this week.

*9, 11,210 *11,210 Ginga e Kickoff!! "Jinsei Wahaha!"

This may be one of my favorite anime songs 2012. Good to see it rank, but I wish it sold more.

I'm excited about this! Is it enough to really hope for a season 2?

Could I ask did the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure DVD's come out yet? I've been kind of slacking on looking at sales this past month and I am really curious for if it does well.

January 30th, so the data will be out on February 5th along with Magi and a few other shows.

It's looking to do very well, possibly 10k first week if Amazon Ranking Stalker isn't overestimating it.

Thanks for the info.

Girls und Panzer nearing the 20k mark makes me a happy man, as that show is awesome. A well-deserved first place.

Kamisama Hajimemashita doing well also pleases me, as I found that show a lot more charming than Tonari and Sukitte, respectively.


Love Girls Und Panzer, well deserved.

Couldn't get into Kamisama Kiss though. Tried the first couple of episodes, didn't finish the second one.

Loved Sukitte and Tonari but sadly I am one of the few who did.

Jan 15, 2013 5:13 PM by hpulley

Yeah. I hope for Oda Nobuna S2 too. It was real surprise for me. Too bad such sales is 50/50 thing. Enough to make the S2 but not enough to really hope for one.

Jan 15, 2013 2:49 PM by Nachtwandler_21

Excellent, it's great to see that Oda Nobuna is selling well.

The prospects of a second season might someday happen if it can keep it's sales up...

Here's hoping.

Second season WHEN?????


My thoughts. It was the best shoujo series of autumn 2012 imo.


The problem is that the way they finished this series with an original ending makes it almost impossible for there to be a second season. There are implications that become apparent later in the manga if Tomoe behaves like he did at the end and it's very key to the overall plot.
