i wonder why people still complain over E8 when the last 3 volumes were NOT endless eight DVDs


You're not part of the cool kids if you don't bash E8.

i'm not sure but E8 is not that bad and the animation is much better than some anime though ==" plus there are more of new episodes at the end of the season that's why some people are willing to buy it. (well not me :P)

Ahahaha. Durarara!! at top. Expected it.

Endless Eight. Otakus, did you lose your common sense when they showed E8? WHY ARE YOU WILL BUYING IT!?!?!?!? DO YOU WANT KADOKAWA AND KYOANI TO TROLL AS AGAIN!? THINK, PEOPLE, THINK.

I still maintain that the people who complained about Endless Eight and the people who bought the season 2 DVDs are the exact same people btw.
That's why I'm falling into the misery.

Hurr durr

there's an "eight meals a day for people who seriously believe this" joke somewhere but I can't think of a witty way to say it unfortunately =(

Dulalala a hit, good. Haruhi continues a slow collapse over season 1.5 kind of a bummer, I blame Endless Eight.

i dont know what you mean, its sales went up a bit (barely) after E8 plus it still sells better than like 80% of animes atm

but when I see endless eight sales being extremely good even though it is only containing one episode for the same price, I fall into the misery.

you clearly need help if japanese anime makes you fall into misery in any way

This list brought me slight hope on Japanese animes. Durarara...... Kimi ni Todoke... Aria...(although I haven't seen it)

but when I see endless eight sales being extremely good even though it is only containing one episode for the same price, I fall into the misery.

One to four and number eight especially make me happy. Will buy when they come to Amereeka.

Natsu no scorebook sold far more than I expected. Hell yes, the second season dvd's will sell like cakes.

Also, hell yes Durarara, so tempted to buy.

Mar 30, 2010 2:44 PM by Usami-Haru
