You just need to put the word "limited edition" on anything and they'll buy it.

not to surprising for me, in fact i know k-on would be on top5
for knk, they deserved it :D

The only thing I care about in this list is K-On bluray being out means we should be getting a proper encode in the near future, not Chihiro's crap or the broadcast crops. I look forward to it a lot.

Also woo for Kara beating Ghibli. Even if it is Ponyo's 5th week. >.>

This is so retarded.

*sobs* I'm so touched...KnK RULES!! Limited edition? WTF?

Aug 5, 2009 3:42 AM by NERD4CT10N

Fans and collectors will never change, even if it is just short episodes they have equal value for most.

Aug 5, 2009 3:09 AM by Zirgo

Haruhi-chan vol.3

Isn't it waste to buy Haruhi-chan, because they are so short episodes.

Aug 5, 2009 3:03 AM by rostern

Kara no Kyoukai scored top place!!

K-ON! made it to fourth. Nice...
