Anything below 2000 points by this point now is probably a lost cause, with the likely exception of Hetalia (Animate) and maybe Yama no Susume (late solicit, late release).
OreShura is probably all event ticket. It very probably won't have the third best average sales of the season.
I'm wondering what happened to Vividred Operation. Hasn't seen the top 100 since February 18th. Since the 21st it's been struggling to even stay top 200. I wonder how it's doing at B&Ms. It's not going to have poor sales by any stretch, and with a season as slow as this one seems to be it could still easily be #2 but Strike Witches (14k) it almost surely will not be.
Tamako and Minami-ke have been amusingly close in points for some time now, but this is definitely the closest it's been.
GJ-bu comes out in just a few days so that should temper expectations, but the way that one turned around is pretty impressive. It's been in the top 150 almost continuously since Feb 14th. But is it too little too late?
