I'm not surprised... Angel Beats's songs are just magnificent...

Good stuff overall.

I'm kinda expecting K-ON!!'s "Pure Pure Heart" to take first place next week (or at the very least rank within the top 5).

Well, to be fair, the OP and ED have been in the charts for 4 weeks now, at least one of which they topped. I think you should be more surprised they're not ranked lower right now.

But wtf, how is Go Go Maniac from K-ON!! still beating Listen!?!


Maybe because the first is indeed better than the second, and that most people merely deny the obvious? :P

Like many others I am glad to see like many others the rank of Angel Beats on the charts. But, I'm really happy to see that Hakuouki has barely made it since I love this song as well. :) Both are songs I never get tired of and have high replay potential.

I like that Angel Beats beat K-ON musically. :)

Also fuck yeah Arakawa

Jun 2, 2010 12:09 AM by ESSWHY

The K-ON crap was on the top 2 places for like a week which is just sad.

*8, 18,443 *18,443 Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei OP "Maigo Inu to Ame no Beat"
10, 12,564 *12,564 Arakawa Under the Bridge OP "Venus to Jesus"
11, 10,865 *10,865 Shimajiro Hesoka OP "Boku wo Sagashite" by Toyosaki Aki

Angel Beats muzak sucks but check these awesome tracks out.

I'm really surprised Yojouhan made number 2! Definitely deserved 1 though~

I'm pleased with this.

I knew that the Angel Beats single would sold, not only because the anime seems to be popular, but just because of Lia's amazing performance, but I never expected it to sell this much. I'm gladly surprised as My soul, your beats! is one of my (if not the one) favorite Lia songs.

More than the ranking I'm surprised that Angel Beats! matches K-On!!'s sale numbers. Okay you have to admit the single contain both OP and ED, but still..

And it's painful to see such trash songs sell 10k copies ~~, 10k what good anime don't even sell on DVD

Glad to see Heroman's OP and Angel Betas' OP on here.
But wtf, how is Go Go Maniac from K-ON!! still beating Listen!?!

Good one, Angel Beats! certainly deserves it. Lia is an awesome singer.

I'm kinda surprised K-ON!! didn't rank higher.
