'TIGER & BUNNY' is getting tons of fujoshi/gaijin hype, and getting very high ranking. This is very, very unexpected. In long term, Steins;Gate is getting more attention, but with its airing, ranking dropped a bit. Still very high though. Next place is Denpa Onna, which hasn't even aired. Obviously, the influence is original-novel fans + Shaft fans. Hana-saku Iroha is doing average job currently.

Edited: Wow, Tiger Bunny is in first place now, even above Madoka Magica. Fujoshi hype is very, very scary.


  1. Anohana just went #1 right? Looks like noitaminA hit a jackpot.

  2. Anohana has been #2-#3 for most of the day now, incredible for just over a day since it aired. no other new show that started the same night has even made a dent in the Top 100. Aria was #90 before thankfully exiting, Denpa which was in and out before it aired didn't even come in.

    Seriously no one would've predicted that Anohana and Tiger and Bunny would be in the top 4 selling shows of the season...

  3. Since this post was done...

    Steins;Gate Vol 1 did another 93 points to = 1,129
    Tiger & Bunny Vol 1 did another 543 points to = 891
    AnoHana Vol 1 did 836 points in 2 days
    Hanasaku Vol 1 added 25 points to = 147
    Denpa Onna Vol 1 added 23 points to = 71, not good since it started airing after this post...

    Steins;Gate's momentum seems to be slowing, AnoHana as well as Tiger & Bunny seem to be the form shows at the moment.

  4. @Westlo: I will post new preorder ranking at the end of April. Nichijou hasn't been listed yet, and also few others.
