Monday is Listurday! 12/15/08

This week's lists of the best-selling anime, manga, and whatever else sounds interesting.

So welcome to the newly-Mondayified Listurday! Here's this week's stats and top tens and whatnot:

Japan:

  • For the past weekend, the number one movie in Japan is Wall-E, but there's anime and manga related stuff to be had as well: number two is Major, a part of the popular baseball franchise; and number three is BLEACH Fade to Black. Also, number ten is Yes! PreCure 5 GoGo! Okashi no Kuno no Happy Birthday. Good times!
  • No anime in the top five DVDs, although Clannad After Story volume one took sixth place.
  • Now, you already know that Nodame Cantabile Parihen's 9 episode earned a time slot record-breaking 6.6% rating, which ranked it #8 on the TV anime charts for the past week. The usual suspects take the top levels: Sazae-san, Chibi Maruko-chan, Crayon Shin-chan, One Piece, Ge Ge Ge no Kitarou, etc.
  • In comics, One Piece volume 52 outsold BLEACH #36, D.Gray-Man #17, Gintama #26, and Vagabond #29, respectively.
  • On the music side, we'll start with singles: Gundam 00 Second Season's second ED theme, Chiaki Ishikawa's “Prototype,” is the #2 best-selling single this week. Mouryou no Hako ED “Naked Love,” by Ikimono Gakari, is #5.
  • We'll end with music albums; #2 on the list is the Macross Frontier Vocal Collection Musumetama.

The end! Hm, this feels a little overkill on links. Is it still comprehensible for you guys?

One Piece beats everything. In sales. Even dragonball.

Nice collection of stuff! I don't think you went overkill with the links. :P
