AnoHana Ascends Amazon’s Charts

Jun 24, 2011 @ 19:34 CDT


AnoHana’s touching tale proves to be a popular one as it immediately ascended Amazon’s sales charts straight to the stars – the unknown flower certainly made a name for itself.

The name of the anime which we have forgotten because it is rather long has concluded yesterday leaving its otaku following raging for merchandise, limited edition gear, and Blu-rays – promptly purchasing all AnoHana optical media from Amazon to the point of placing it on 6 of 10 top spots of Amazon Japan’s disk sales, only to be defeated by repulsive J-pop lovers.

The lengthy title in question is one of immense beauty if our otaku friends’ purchasing tendencies are to be believed.

The plot summarizes as:

A group of six childhood friends drift apart after one of them, Meiko “Menma” Honma, dies in an accident. Ten years later, the leader of the group, Jinta Yadomi, has since become withdrawn and lives as a recluse. One summer day, an older looking Menma appears before him, saying she wants to have a wish granted, though she does not remember what it is.

Amazon Japan’s top 10 media disk sales:
AnoHana also of course dominated not only Amazon as many other Japanese online retailers were overwhelmed with a river of AnoHana-loving otaku causing the series to top their charts as well.

      I think this one would have of course been better had there been more episodes – 11 episodes was really not enough.
