Nice that's the first 'serious' cover out of all of them. Vol.7 and 8, I don't really want them but if I don't get them then 5 and 6 just kinda sit in the second box awkwardly, so I guess I'll have to.

Was it Vol 3's cover with the clovers and Kuroko? Felt it was the worst since it had nothing to do with the arc.

Lol yeah it was. And then vol.4 was ITEM being all happy and warm. Doesn't quite fit the episodes covered in the volume but oh well... At least 5 delivered.

Mugino and Frenda getting Beach Queens.
Both are nice, though I'm not a fan of beach queen figs, I'll still get em.

They did a really good job with this Saten:

Seriously, when will she finally get a Beach Queens figure? So much wasted potential...

It's a little small to say with certainty, but it looks like she's not wearing a bottom under that piece of clothing.

The one who drew this is quite some naughty bloke.

^Oh, I didn't notice that. It's indeed dubious.

I think you should zoom a bit, then you would notice that the "sarong" is semi-transparent.
And if you look really closely, you will see green/yellow swimsuit bottom under it.
It's faint, but it is clearly there (it has different texture than the rest of the sarong)

You are right zaeraal, with low image resolution it's barely barely distinguishable.
Btw one day I will surely die from blood loss because of those sarongs of her:3

@Miraluka: Touman & Accelerator on cover increase sales indeed.

Especially after how 2,3,4 were.

I'm no expert, but it is usually difficult to DVD back to sell more than the previous one, it breaks the myth that only Mikoto increases sales,

It would sell more if the cover were at least decent or made by artist like Motoi.

I don't think that was ever the case. But there is a certain crux that makes the cover eye-catching and Mikoto definitely is apart of it.

Nothing game-changing though. Volume 5 had some of the best episodes & the climax.

I'm happy volume 5 picked up a little... I guess from now on the sales will get really interesting.... If they pick up... We know where the fanbase is otherwise... There just isn't any... I'm still kind of disappointed it didn't sell more and I think it's weird that more people bought volume 5 than volume 4 especially since it helps to watch one before the other... :__:

Game Talesweaver had a collaraboration with Railgun.

Promotional Image:

Webpage with the campaign - http://talesweaver.nexon.co.jp/campa...aign135_4.aspx

It included playable characters - Mikoto, Kuroko, Saten, Uiharu, Sister, Febli (and more) and some of their items.
They all had usable skills (SATEN WITH A SWORD!!!, Mikoto with Railgun...)
And because the talesweaver game is a set of ministories, it also included the story from Item and Sister arcs.

Promotional Video:
