News Hidan no Aria Author: 2nd Season Needs More BD/DVDs Sales
posted on 2011-07-01 16:00 BST
In a series of Twitter posts, Aria the Scarlet Ammo (Hidan no Aria) author Chūgaku Akamatsu reported that more Blu-ray Discs and DVDs need to be sold for a second season to be realized. To that end, he encouraged fans to buy more, or another season cannot be made. The first home volume for the anime went on sale last week, and it sold 4,007 Blu-ray Discs and 2,349 DVDs.
By contrast, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko series director Yukihiro Miyamoto reported that his anime series only needs a little more support for a second season. The first home video volume sold 5,267 Blu-ray Discs and 1,361 DVDs during its first week of sales last week.

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
It may be overpriced and inefficiently marketed, but that doesn't change the fact that this classic tale of a man's journey to becoming his world's first astronaut stands among the best anime movies ever made.
