I just need to strap a rocket to my ass to go to Japan to buy them XD:;;;;; Or use the internet...

first option sounds like more fun... maybe Wile E. Coyote was actually otaku.... but it didn't work well for him either. :<

This is a depressing ranking.

The releases of the autumn anime like Code Geass and Macross F were completed and the winter anime are pretty poor in sales. so we'll see uninteresting rankings for the next couple of months until the spring anime start to be released. (The Blu-ray dominates the spring anime releases, so the DVD rankings can be boring even after the summer.)
You know it's bad when ZKC is in the top 10 but I guess you're right, not a lot of grade A stuff. I'd have expected Higurashi to do better though.
