Seems like they'll reach that goal soon. Word of mouth is a powerful thing.
They've got greeting events all across the country, so there shouldn't be any problems.
It was pretty empty when I went on the Silver Week Sunday. Hopefully that was just because of TGS.
Just the fact that it's out-pacing AnoHana means it must be doing well!
It'll break 1.5 billion yen, just watch!
