Japan's Animation Blu-ray Disc Ranking, January 25-31

posted on 2010-02-04 16:42 EST

The Oricon survey firm reports that the fourth volume of the Bakemonogatari anime series is the top-selling television anime Blu-ray Disc in Japan so far. It sold 48,000 copies to top the previous recordholder — volume 3 at 41,000 copies in November. For all anime Blu-ray Discs, it only trails the Evangelion 1.11: You Are (Not) Alone film, which sold 49,000 copies in its first week. All told, the Bakemonogatari series has sold 198,000 Blu-ray Discs so far.

However, Michael Jackson's This Is It concert documentary debuted at #1 on the overall weekly Blu-ray Disc charts. With 261,000 copies sold, it is the highest selling Blu-ray Disc in Japan so far.

Neither firm directly posts more data for weekly sales than what is listed here. Any purportedly additional data comes from unverifiable, anonymous sources.]
