Awww it sucks to see the best ED sell so low :(

1,162 *,***1,162 Saint Seiya Song Selection


Oh Hell Fucken Yes I haven't seen no Saint Seiya related stuff on Mal for quite a while now so seeing the songs from the anime still sell somewhat makes me happy this anime deserves more attention D: One of the best parts of the anime aside the characters was the soundtrack so hoping the songs keep selling.

It's because the band producing the soundtrack are Radwimps. They're pretty bloody fantastic.

Nice to see IDOLISH7 on the list.

I hope it continues to do great!

@tsubasalover
Yume Kataru yori Yume Utaou is actually the Love Live! SunShine!! ED theme.
________________________________________

Here is the comparison between the OP theme and the Aqours 1st and 2nd singles, after 6 weeks of sales. Jumping Heart is well ahead of the the 1st and 2nd singles at the same point in time, and it didn't have any bonuses whatsoever, which is a really good anime boost.

Other Love Live related sales for this week. The album Top 300 threshold was a bit too high for the μ's Best Live collection I, but it shouldn't be that far behind Best II in reality for this week's sales.

ahh the streak of aqours is really going well.. but 40k? that is lower by 8k compared to their past singles... looks like aqours is losing a part of their stable fandom. Worrying indeed


You're comparing the ED theme to their 1st and 2nd singles which doesn't make much sense to me. The ED usually always sells lower than the OP theme, as shown during the μ's era. As I said earlier in my post, the OP theme is ~5K ahead of the 2nd single and ~4.5K ahead of the 1st single at the same point in time (after 6 weeks of sales), which is a better sign that the anime is actually doing its job of boosting sales.

Just a small correction: the single is the ending theme; then is ED, not IN.

No surprises here.

Nice to see Re:zero siingles there.
Sales of gochuumon ga usagi Chara song actually has the potential to beat rezero singles if they sold 3 days earlier
Also nice crzay sales for that mahouka ish song

LiSA of course with some fab sales, not sure if it's low for her or not though, will have to look into that. Walküre keeps on adding, as is GARNiDELiAs new single. The new May'n single sold less than what I had hoped for though.

34. *1,770 *,115,612 Walküre "Walkure Attack!"

Still selling, got really good legs, wonder if can hang on in the charts until Walkure Trap! comes out.
