So Evangelion remains popular even to this day...

And I thought Summer Wars was so much better, although to be fair I didn't watch Evangelion nor do I intend to. ;P

Yay for Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha The MOVIE 1st~

Congrats to MSLN the movie 1st for reaping in sales, fame, and making good impressions overall.

No surprises here, being Eva 2.0 the fan favorite (well deserved) but not the most watched

Kudos for Disney's Up, be proud of that 8th place lolz

One Piece and Tales of Vesperia FTW :D

But... I don't know where to watch the movie of TOV, anyone know where?


The DVD will be released on May 27. So until one of the fansub groups acquire it and translate it, we have to wait.

Probably around mid-June,the subbed movie will be available online.

Well, I'd have paid to see Pokemon... maybe the older ones. I can't imagine who is watching the new movies except the nostalgia freaks, and the children of the nostalgia freaks who have been forced to watch Pokemon by their Pokemaniac parents. Also, VG fans who won't give up.


It's still big with the younger kids (and the aforementioned nostalgiamen). A lot of younger kids probably saw it, making it more successful than a lot of other things.

i really want to see evangelion 2 too

Mar 11, 2010 6:55 PM by Mr_Gutts

since I really hate Evangelion, Pokemon even in 2009 beating it is awesome.

...even though the only good Pokemon movies were 2000 and the one with the pirate.

Mar 11, 2010 12:33 PM by kkslider5552000

On that first chart, doesn't anyone find it..well, disturbing..how only two movies are original IPs? And one of the two is a Disney movie...

Also, four are summaries/remakes.
