it makes no sense for a limited edition DVD to sell that poorly, especially for such a well received show.


Unfortunately, there isn't always a strong correlation between popularity/reception and sales, otherwise True Tears and Taishou Yakyuu Musume would've fared much better (they didn't have enough hooks that appeal to hardcore collectors).

2ch posters were very happy to watch and discuss those series. However, they didn't see much collector's value in the merchandise.

Damn, I though that said Fresh Prince O_o

But I guess it's good to still see K-ON! there.

Yea especially because Ikkitousen #2 and Queen blade #3 are definitely not boobshit.

I'm actually surprised Sunred didn't sell more copies. S1 sales were over 3000 copies per volume.

I can only imagine people are snapping up the Nyan Koi BDs, it makes no sense for a limited edition DVD to sell that poorly, especially for such a well received show.


Why buy a DVD of a show who aired in High-Definition? Waiting for BD data... next week.

Are you trying to say, that in the end, they're used for different purposes? I don't think so brosef.
Nah, I just prefer mindless moe to mindless boobage.
