I'm overjoyed to see Ensemble Stars at the ranking's top!! It really deserves it's popularity. I'm excited for the anime!

Utada will probably be the best selling solo artist for this year, I'm glad her comeback went so well.

Wake up Girls sales is so painful to watch..

I love WUG (not as much as µ's) and wish them to be as successful as them
I also love both WUG and Muse. It has been painful to watch the decline of WUG. Their first CDs and movie sold over 10K but their last movie sold hardly any copies at all and their CDs are just selling 1K now. I guess we'll see how their first non-WUG related single does soon but I don't think it will do much better. Only through the love of Yamakan has WUG continued to make CDs and have concerts but it is just getting to be a bit pathetic now. Luckily several of the seiyuu from WUG have managed to land a decent number of other roles. I wish all of them success.

Honestly I prefer Trap to Attack. The 2nd cour OP/ED aren't as strong as the first ones for me but the insert songs for the 2nd half were just incredible. The Walkure version of Ai Oboete Imasu Ka? is just such a treat, I like it even better than the instrumental version from the OST.

Good to hear, agreed the 2nd OP and ED aren't as strong but they have grown on me immeasurably. Haven't seen the track list (like to go in blind) but good to hear that the cover of Ai Oboete Imasu Ka? is fab.

Bigger drop (about 22k) from the first album than I expected which is a shame but looking at it alone it is still fantastic first week sales though without doubt and it's going to have long legs. Cannot wait to get my copy.

Even Attack! got a boost, presumably from the (incredible) ending to the series. All is well.
