Good to see that La Maison en Petits Cubes is so popular. It may only be 10 minutes long, but it is probably one of the best anime ever in the 10 minutes it has. My Neighbor Totoro is doing great as well, despite its age. I think it is Miyazaki's best work by a mile, so I am pleased with this as well.

Bakemonogatari has probably been one of the better anime this year, so I don't mind it sweeping the blu-ray sales.

Wall-E was amazing.

I don't really care about the anime part of the list though...(Maybe Gundam 00, but just that)

People apparently liked being trolled by Gintama;))) Yeah)))

Gintama really sold a bundle on the Shiroyasha Koutan :D

I can see why Bakemono is so appealing for native Japanese audiences, justifying the insane sale record for it. :3

hurrah for bakemono as well.

Miyazaki anime: Everyone just buys it... >_>

Huuray for bakemonogatari being in top 5 of blu-ray sales for all their released volumes~~

Glad to see actually Usavich selling more than I guessed. Hope that they will produce a fourth season as well.

Also, thx for the news!
