Glad to see Girls und Panzer doubling the sales of Oreimo 2 and Love Live!. Now it's just the waiting game for OVA 6 to get subbed.

Wow... I'm thrilled to see the final Girls und Panzer volume heading the list. The series was great, and this volume's OVA was a lot of fun.

I'm happy that I made a small contribution to the sales numbers of almost half of the releases on this list: GuPanzer 6, Chuunibyou 7, Garden of Words, Macross Plus, and Tamako Market 4.

I was really hoping the 3rd Berserk film would sell alot more. I was really hoping it to break the 10K mark, but fell short at around 5K copies.

Hope it's enough to warrant the project to continue on, after the 3 films.

Can't wait to watch the second film when it's released on Blu Ray this August and of course, will pre-order the 3rd, as soon as that is announced as well.

I really hope Berserk doesn't continue to get made, at least not by the same staff or animation team. I think people just wanted to see this BD uncensored, which is why ticket sales were awful.

I really hope it does continue to be made, after everything settles after the films. But, with these sales numbers and alot of negative feedback regarding the films, I don't feel too good about them continuing with this franchise, after the films.

I do agree with you and if there is any chance this work continues on, I do really hope (pray) another animation studio, character designer, director, producer can breath new life into this 20+ year old IP.

It's a shame because this is my absolute favorite IP and even though the pace of the manga, is one volume a year, I will continue to support Miura and his work.
