Calling Canaan a "masterpiece" is a huge overstatement...it's as average as average something could be. But I think its sales will be counted for the next week, not for this one.
pff, its below average. And to think there making 3 movies of it


tck everyone have their own preference dude...
And Canaan definitely not kind of anime you can found every season.

Even if not many people agree with me, at least i wanna see PA Works have good sales this times... This studio always awesome in their Artwork. Hopefully this time they can see "many zero" so Canaan not become their last project >_>


It won't be their last project, because there will be people like us to support the studio I guess. I enjoyed Canaan myself and wouldn't let the "experts" and "critics" stop me from liking what I do.

As for the DVD sales, ponyo is doing really well. As always might I add.

Hetalia gets good sales but once again K-On is a lot lower than I thought, maybe there is a boycott of Kyo Ani.

ow They're already have new project huh ?
Well PA Works already have experience for handling VN(?) Title-based anime but i think Ithis one not too promising if you looks based by the genre >_>
(VN Adaptation anime aways sucky except Utawarermono)
Thanks for the info anyways...

Well its time to look forward for next week ranking.

Muhahahaha! Hetalia dominating, yes! I'm glad Shiroyasha keeps selling well.

Btw, K-ON at second is not surprising. Moe explains it xD

wow such a quite noticeable turndown for FMA : Brotherhood
Global economy still crisis have impact on japan huh ?
So collecting DVD/Blu-ray for long running series must be very considered before in their account.

And where is CANAAN ? ;_;

Hope this doesn't mean PA Works will fail again on term of sales for their masterpiece after True Tears tragedy before...
