I thought K-On was more popular, 5,845 sells only, I figured close to 12,000 considering the fanbase.

Otakus are really letting that company down.

And Dragon Ball Kai is only number 8, I thought that show was huge.


The real deal for K-ON! is the BDs, as Volumes 1 and 2 proved. Waiting for the update by news team.


Exactly. They'll proably sell 25.000+ BD volumes or something like that.

K-ON! DVD
vol.01 *7,949 *9,418 10,326
vol.02 *6,028 *7,903

K-ON! Blu-ray
vol.01 32,503 35,220 36,561 37,547 38,725

What! Ponyo beat Hayate the Combat Butler! That movie is so overrated!!



But you see its better than the overrated ecchi crap of hayate or the huge moe blob of K-On :E


It deserves the high place :P


Where Hayate no Gotoku is ecchi? I saw no panties in this entire season.


Yeah, I was about to say. Hayate the Combat Butler is definitely not ecchi. And if that's ecchi to you, I don't even want to know what you think about series like Ikkitousen, To-Love-Ru, etc.

And Ponyo sold a lot, since July. Best-seller of 2009, w/ more than 800 thousand DVDs, by far.

Oh grow up, all the people who can't stand K-ON being number one.

I'm surprised to see Winter Sonata up so high, though.

Nice again K-ON! it's starting to be boring to see them on the top >.<

Wow, the Gundam entries at #7 and #15 are just a collection of OP and ED themes that you can get from youtube, right?

Or is there some DVD-exclusive material bundled with them?


Yes, just the OPs and EDs. But true otakus/fans buy EVERYTHING - and Gundam, as we all know, is huge in Japan.

K-ON! is bound to die off sometime.

I thought people already forgot about K ON , it looks like I'm wrong D:

Winter So...WHAT?! o_O

I mean, just what this thing is doing there with the numbers almost the same as K-On!'s?...

There are millions of elderly fans of Winter Sonata in Japan. 5,580 seems smaller than expected. I guess "anime" is not common media for those elderly ladies.

Still, such numbers for something like "making video" is quite surprising...but oh well, it seems that I shouldn't underestimate the elderly ladies dedication. :)))

Now I'm really curious how well the series itself will do. From what I've read on some japanese forums and blogs, most of the "regular anime otaku's" comments were negative...well, I guess it'll be interesting to see when the first episodes are out.
