The CD is now ranked #17 in Amazon CD ranking. Very good start !!

However since it is grouped under CD category in Amazon, we will not able to see how many it is forecast to sell in Stalker....

Not going to lie, I am surprised since I heard KMB didn't do well in sells.
KMB is quite a unique work in that it sold really bad (<1k) but yet is very well remembered. News about it like those merchandise sales get widespread attention in anime sites and forums in Japan, for example.

This series was painful for me but hey if this gets an OVA a year+ later then anything's possible.

Kill Me Baby was very quirky. Looking forward to the OVA.

This is great news to me as only 2 days ago I was talking about how this anime series got so little sales but yet so loved by many people who find it strangely mesmerizing ( http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=644447&show=120#msg24174649 ).

And I don't think I've heard of OVA bundled with a CD album. By how they market the hybrid product, clearly it is billed as a CD first DVD second item. This is interesting -- just like OAD is made to push manga/LN sales, so now we have OAD made to push CD sales!

Also a boxset was announced, still how did this get an OVA when it sold dismally.
Not sure, but there is a movement to revive the anime that has been going on quite a while.... There is also a stream of merchandise still coming out from time to time, with the latest being 50 different mobile phone covers from the franchise.


This anime has a cult following, interesting, if the CD sales are great, a second season may happen, it wouldn't be the first time this would happen.
