Maybe the question should be..how many eps are on a single DVD (Average) for a TV series??!
Random ones I know: K-ON has two episodes, and Toaru Majutsu no Index and Pandora Hearts have three.
Small amounts.

Two eps per DVD is the standard now. Sometimes it's even 1 episode + 1 special *cough*. Three eps per DVD is relatively rare.

Almost sad to see Eva 1.11 selling so well.


Well, it's the delicious BDs. Remember that 1.11 is the 1st BD Rebuild of Eva 1.0 edition.

Good week for Miyazaki. And can't wait for Totoro breaking the million mark. Of DVDs - God knows how much VHS and LD this movie sold.

(Why so many gundam DVDs?)


It says anniversary edition, Gundam is one of those series that they put crap on a plate, but make it look good and name it Gundam "something". It will still sell better than many other series.
Also, Gundam is a merchandise anime which means you are not considered a fan unless you have bought everything related to it.

good job for K-ON! ^^

I didn't thought the day I would see 07-Ghost up there o.O! But I got to admit the first episode were worth buying <.<

Oh neat, Tekkaman?

Way to go Ponyo...I guess. Not unexpected (Why so many gundam DVDs?)

Aug 18, 2009 8:09 PM by shakeyourpup45

Is anything new on that list? If so it flopped, I can't believe that Totoro is number 3 even with everything flopping and a Ponyo bump.

Just a sad week for DVD sells if your name isn't Miyazaki
