(Recorded date: 23rd Jan 2010)
Here is the current pre-order ranking for winter 2011 season anime releases;
1. Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica
CURRENT RANKING: 3If you look at this carefully, the preorder ranking infinitely soared after the third episode airing.
Here is the comparison to Bakemonogatari Preorder ranking;
2. IS: Infinite Stratos
CURRENT RANKING: 28Decent. I expect about 10,000, knowing its fanbase from original. Too much of harem sometimes turns me off, though.
3. Yumekui Merry
CURRENT RANKING: 122If I'm to choose one of the most disappointing animation of this season, it's this one. I can't believe how horrible direction is compare to the manga. Shit director, shit contis shit music. Once I watch obligatory 3 episodes, I will write mad-rage review and drop this shit. The preorder ranking reflects it; it will never sell better than being 'decent'.
CURRENT RANKING: 158Bye, Yamakan. We will miss you.
CURRENT RANKING: 169Victorica and Yuuki Aoi. The single selling point that this animu has.
CURRENT RANKING: 280I was so god damn shocked when I first watched this.
7. Oniichan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne—!!
CURRENT RANKING: 414I found this to be quite funny.
8. Kore wa Zombie Desuka?
CURRENT RANKING: 672*Not being in ranking 300 means 'bombed' most of the time.
9. Hourou Musuko
CURRENT RANKING: 693noitaminA Orz
CURRENT RANKING: 757Not even worth listing the graph. Failure 1
11. Dragon Crisis
CURRENT RANKING: 1791Can Kugiming save this? No. Failure 2
12. Rio - Rainbow Gate
CURRENT RANKING: 1879Shit. Failure 3
PS. I didn't listed, but Kimi ni Todoke 2nd season gets the first place among this term releases in DVD preorder ranking. Followed by IS and Madoka.
ringOtamegane's Last Words
Shit season. As expected, Hourou Musuko (which I will drop anyway) and Madoka the only thing that people can actually say 'good'.
Winner is Madoka alone, anyway.
