I thought Saki would clear 10,000 with a show with that many panties that seems kind of low.

Have you even watched Saki? There's no panty shots in it at all.

I thought Saki would clear 10,000 with a show with that many panties that seems kind of low. Hayate I wish sold 10 times that amount but alas...

Also I am surprised Totoro isn't up there.

AHAHAHAHA, I love you JC for doing references even in your Hayate DVD sales, how very true to the series. I suppose the new scenes would be the bits and pieces of scenes they skipped to fit the material in each episode.


Nice one, gonna look forward to this.
