Surprised Nisemonogatari isn't first, considering Bakemonogatari was one of the best selling anime in Japan on bluray last year.

Less than 1000 votes, lol. Daily Lives is looking to be one of the worst selling shows of the season so this isn't really too reliable.

Only shows lower than it in the ranking are Another, Thermae Romae, Brave 10 and Kill me Baby, though all 5 shift spots a lot.

-edit- Oh and this is the Amazon Stalkers rankings, a Japanese website which uses the Amazon preorders to project sales. They're always within 15% of the actual sales with its point system.

Highschool boys is number 1?



I don't care if there are so few votes, that means that at least in that group it is number 1. [/img]

Brave10 at number 5 means the list is made of fail. I could see why some people liking Danshi though. While not one of my top shows this season, it depends on how one takes in the humor.

And I thought VGchartz estimation was wonky. How do you even look at those charts not to mention why are you assuming Daily Lives to be the worst selling show of the season when some shows from this season didn't even make those lists.

PoT has yet to be solicited and the 3-5 minute shorts are never guaranteed home-video release. That said, the Stalker is mainly for late-night anime. Because that is mostly where home-video sales actually matter.

Kyousogiga and Area no Kishi are another pair of anime missing and there's a couple other 5 min shows not covered, why they aren't there now isn't the point. There are still anime from the Winter season that have yet to take their place in those preliminary standings. Missing products and ignoring opinion polls isn't the best way to predict how overall sales will turn out.

Area no Kishi might not even get a home-video release. The TV ratings have been beyond terrible, going as low as .2% Kyousogiga was an ONA and not even a TV anime and may or may not get a home-video release. ONA are never guaranteed one.

And yes, the Stalker has proven to be quite dependable on predicting how overall sales turn out.
