The latest DVD sales figures to emerge, covering the week of the November new release period, are rather interesting to behold, showing as they do the expected success of two of the titles we favour so much here, Kannagi and Strike Witches.

Sanya drives sales of the third Strike Witches DVD, and it seems wretched Kannagi virgin hunters are insignificant in impact after all, or at least bought a DVD for some other reason…

Incidentally, the lowest ranking anime (which we would be interested in) to feature in the chart is Vampire Kishi 5, with something like 2,500 DVDs sold in the week.

Another point is that big titles like Code Geass might normally have a clear lead, but are conveniently not released in this period, so we are able to savour a 2nd place Kannagi.
