Yes! As Dragonball being my favorite anime series from here till the day I die, I love the fact of what I deem the greatest anime of all time to be on the top of the DVD sales again! Interesting that the mega popular Shippuden is at the bottom spot.

Guess this means Gundam 00 Volume 1 fell well short of Code Geass Volume 1's 63k and Geass only had 1 episode as well....

Well, Dragonball is a lot more popular than Naruto in Japan. A lot of things are, actually. One Piece among other things...

Weird that GT is selling good, though.

Sales of the GT DVD's have always been good in Japan, they still love the franchise over there.

Dragonball may not be more popular than Naruto now (as in the very moment I'm typing this) but I think on a historical standpoint, DB is ultimately more popular than Naruto. Granted, DB may not be the most popular anime in Japan and globally (Pokemon, Gundam, Evangelion, and Yugioh all have a strong "popularity competition") but is arguably one of the most (and maybe the most) famed anime ever.
