Fullmetal Alchemist finds its way into two top fives this week, with volume 21 of the manga series earning the No. 2 spot and the fourth Brotherhood DVD getting the five spot on the Oricon charts. The franchise refuses to fade into obscurity, and shows no sign of decreasing popularity.
Meanwhile, vampires still dominate the manga charts, with volume eight of Vampire Knight holding the top spot again, and Rosario Vampire finding the top five again, with volume 10 taking the No. 5 spot.
In Jpop, Exile hangs on, holding the No. 5 spot with Futatsu no Kichibiru. This week’s top slot goes to Akanishi Jin with its release Bandage.
In DVD’s Bakemonogatari enjoys a surge on the charts, getting spot numero uno with volume three. Detective Conan, Suzumiya and Gintama all share the chart this week.
The Japanese cinema charts still have yet to be updated on Box Office Mojo, and J Geeks may soon be looking for a new source.
