LOL @ those people who shunned it, i guess majority wins ;-p

Hahaha Isshoni Training all the way to the top! Code geass and Gundam also at the top as expected. Seeing macross reminds me that I still have to watch it.

Any reason why Monsters Inc is up there? Was it just released or have pixar films had a resurgence?

Did anything new come out this week, if so, not that good.

Genji Monogatari Sennenki vol.1 was the only title released this week and it failed to appear in the ranking.


Interesting graph.
Yay, TTGL!
