Re: Anime Sales in Japan - 2013 (Released volumes)
I have sent you a PM about why I think such artificial separation does not make sense (except for the purists) and why I think it just discourages sales discussions of any kind.
To be honest, I am very much put off by the suggestion that sales discussion should be separated into released titles and not yet released titles. Just imagine that now I need to talk about JoJo vol.1 performance in the other thread, and then 10 days later I need to switch it to this thread; and then the same needs to happen again one month later for vol.2, and so on. Just to please the purists who are skeptical (in my opinion overly so) about the usefulness of Amazon Stalker data. What they need should be a newsletter thread that gives only results. A sales thread should allow discussion of all titles, released or not.
I thought we are having some solid debates over this and I am surprised to see that a decision seems to be made already in very very short time. Very disappointed.
