Holy-cow!!! Well, I can't react too much about it but I'm just too damn happy too see these news! :D My beloved LiSA's epicity plugged in those great songs were far too great for me to relax, although I'm not quite satisfied with my best anime: Mahouka based on the current episodes released, but with LiSA's epic OP, my hopes risen as to not give up to expect more from the anime: Mahouka <3 <3 <3. I know that it will live up to my expectations, I know it will.

And about my past best anime of the season, KNK, really lived up to my hopes though I'm still expecting more from it and not just a prequel episode, but a whole season at least for the future. We ain't sure that much, but I'm expecting that it's second season will be announced sooner or later or even after the "prequel episode" to air.

Also, about my "last-surviving-sports-anime" from the last season, Yowamushi Pedal. It was really unexpected to be having this great impact not only to me, but to everybody!!! Second season, huh? Epic bike tournaments, huh? And the weak and humble, glasses-kun protagonist, Onoda to be this not OP, but very optimistic and powerful in terms of believing to your comrades and to yourself was very thrilling to see him do his best and paddle as hardly as humanly possible, huh? Everything is great, specially that "kimoi" thingy. xD

Final predictions of M3 BD and DVD are now down to 101 copies each... in which case it likely won't rank at all, ever... and will remain in the mysterious category of **,*** sales fighting it out with Pupa.

Hahaha oh wow this is painful to read. And also really funny.
I dropped the series during episode 3 but I didn't expect so many others to follow suit. Looks like judging a show by its team and thus expecting quality work is wrong after all (of course there exist exceptions, but you get the idea).

Looks like c3-bu v1 won't go in the anime sales history as the worst selling volume.


I'm disappointed that Soubi Yamamoto''s first official series she directed didn't go well at all. I hope someone else will hire her though since I've loved her work.

I wonder if there's anime that their volume 1 never sold whatsoever or sold less than 50 bds/dvds.
Sadly perhaps, I can vouch for a few **,*** sales where I bought a copy myself so I know they sold at least one LOL

The next thing is - which of those *,*** sellers had their first volume out in the slowest week?

That's it! Persona 3 has it! Congrats!

I doubt Meganebu will stay in that spot for long for obvious reasons.

Worst selling anime that ranked*
Who knows how horrible all those unranked anime, which will soon include M3, did in disc sales.


Its more of a question of, when will the next time be that a shitty selling anime will be released in a sub-200 threshold week?

Nice sales for the Baby Steps OP! It is a great song. I find myself humming it days after I watched the most recent episode... Also good to see Sphere near the top of the list!

Persona 3 sold a bit under my expectations.... movies typically do much better than TV series yet the first volume of the Persona 4 series sold over 40k. I guess that just shows that Persona 4 is still a much bigger deal.


It's because Japanese people like Persona 4 more than the grimdark bullshit in Persona 3.

I'd like to add that I love persona 3, it's just that Grimdark shit doesn't sell as well as the type of stylized slice of life in Persona 4.
