So the leaders of the charts are all boy bands and Dan Brown? How saddening.

So... the next volume's commentary will be Senjougahara and Kanbaru? The Valhalla combo? Should be interesting, although it kind of throws a wrench into my expectations of how it was going to go. Well, listening to Hanekawa calmly explain things forever was starting to give me a headache actually...

Anyway, the series ranked 8th on the sale day DVD ranking on the Oricon chart. Ranked 1-8th are roughly the same as yesterday's, but with How do you like Wednesday? new in the chart and Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahene!! stays at the 7th. Both are Japanese variety shows.

9th is the first volume of Gintama 4th year, which marked 14k sales.
Argh, I know what you mean, I just didn't want to admit these people existed.

Since now buying DVDs/Blu-ray is for the sake of collecting or supporting the makers. If someone was a fan when they bought the first volume, maybe by the 3rd or 4th volume they're a fan of something else and don't want to waste money on the first series they bought. That's what I always thought. At least that happened to me many times when collecting manga.

Japanese charts are ALWAYS dominated by boy bands. Especially all those Johnny's Entertainment ones. I find their boy band music...really really really catchy and make good background noise. But they totally suck when I just want to listen to music.

Last week's Hitagi DVD+BD

BD  29,372 +7,879 +2,564 +4,062
DVD 15,513 +3,590 +1,511 +1,454
= 65,945

Only 4,000 until 70k! (The only recent TV series that ever pass that mark is Gundam SEED)

Mayoi DVD ranked 7th on the third day, Hitagi DVD marks one-month by returning to the list at 59th place. Gintama dropped from 9th to 13th, Haruhi makes her debut to the rank on the pre-sale day at 3rd.

Even with "only" that Bakemonogatari has the stronger first volume sales since introduction of DVD... after Gundam Seed series of course. quite the achievement
and.. uh? Blu ray sales are rising again? Hitagi Crab is still healthy (even the DVD is often in the daily top20 anime chart).

Excuse me, assuming you've bought the all the volumes, since each volume consists of only 2-3 episodes is the volumes "Jam-Packed" with special features and such?

I wouldn't say that there are a lot of extras, but the picture quality is excellent and the packaging looks nice. At least the extras make much more sense than the ones on the Haruhi DVDs^^. And the OPs on CD as extra is a nice idea.

I really like the show and I want to at least support some shows that I watch.

Assuming once again, you've checked out every extra and such in the vols. How many mins/hrs are in the extras? By Converting Yen to Dollars how much would it be in dollars? Rate it 1-5 how good is the dvd and is it recommendable to a new viewer? Since its an Arc, is it only a couple of Episodes correct?

Addition: I'm sorry, I'm making you feel like a journalist Lol, I'm just curious thats all.

Mayoi Maimai is 8,400 yen = 92.9628 USD, although Amazon.co.jp has that slashed to 6157 yen = 68.139519 USD.

Apparently this is about what it looks like.

Isn't that the usual price for Japanese otaku-aimed anime?

Mayoi's DVD is sold more than Hitagi's DVD!?! (for the first week)

Hmm... It's probably because there is no stock problem like list time.

Not surprising...
Eps 5 is the start of Senjougahara Tore...
And one of the most shocking love confession in anime history...
