Yui Horie, Nana Mizuki in top 5; K-ON!, Ponyo, Gundam 00, FMA round out top 20

The Yui Horie Clips 2 video collection debuted at #2 on SoundScan Japan's chart for all Blu-ray Discs. The Nana Mizuki Live Diamond x Fever concert video dropped to #4; it had actually debuted at #1 the week earlier, but SoundScan Japan's chart was not published that week due to the year-end holidays.

Rookies: Sotsugyō-, the live-action film feature based on Masanori Morita's Rookies baseball manga, rose from #24 to #16 in its fifth week. Michael Bay's live-action Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen film also rose back from #2 to #1 in its third 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. Neither firm directly posts more data for weekly sales than what is listed here. Any purportedly additional data comes from unverifiable, anonymous sources.]
