The series selling numbers keep decreasing huh... You need more Misaka dear.. lol XD


thats bad news for future anime sequels of Index then, heck this current anime sequel might be the last if it keeps decreasing in sales

Wasn't expecting Slayers to be in the top 3. Anyway can't wait for the next week ranking and see if Realist Hero v8 makes it in the top 20 somewhere.
