Lol, never mind SeiZon, did you see how far Monogatari and Durarara fell

You missed out Author category as well

This year instead of a sweep of #1 for Index, it still manage to retain a strong grip on the #2 positions

P.S. #57 is Kinsei Tokkyu by Ureshino Kimi
Isn't it better to get some new blood into the mix?

Yeah Teh_ping told me the same thing, but you know... It's been a strange year... >.>

I'm certain sales and popularity and more or less linked somehow

Then again, for it's crazy sales numbers, the return of Haruhi didn't really take the rankings by storm as much as I thought.
