posted on 2009-11-04 23:57 EST
Bakemonogatari #2 has highest TV anime BD sales & 2nd highest 1st-week sales of any BD

According to the Oricon survey firm and animeanime.jp website, the second Blu-ray Disc (BD) volume of Bakemonogatari has the highest sales for any television anime BD release. The limited pressing of Bakemonogatari Vol. 2 Mayoi Mai-Mai sold 39,000 copies in its first week. The previous television anime BD record-holder, the first K-ON! volume, sold 33,000 copies in its first week. The second Bakemonogatari volume is the second volume in a row to debut at #1 on Oricon's weekly chart. It also has the second highest first-week sales of any BD release. (The Evangelion: 1.11 BD release sold 49,000 copies in its first week.)

(SoundScan Japan's methods of surveying home video sales are different from those of the competing firm Oricon, which often lead to differing results between the two.)
