Japan's Animation Blu-ray Disc Ranking, June 28-July 4

posted on 2010-07-10 23:59 EDT
K-ON! concert tops overall chart; Eva, Angel Beats!, Railgun, Sekirei in top 10

The survey firm Oricon reports that the K-ON! Live Event Let's Go! Blu-ray concert disc is the top-selling music Blu-ray Disc release in Japan since Oricon started keeping records two years ago. It sold 22,000 copies to also rank as the #1 overall Blu-ray release during the June 28-July 4 week.

The K-ON! Live Event Let's Go! Blu-ray is the third music Blu-ray release to be the #1 overall weekly Blu-ray release — and the first since Nana Mizuki Live Diamond x Fever achieved that goal in December with 13,000 copies in its first week. The first music Blu-ray release to top the overall weekly chart was Namie Amuro Best Fiction Tour 2008-2009 with 14,000 copies in its first week. However, the K-ON! Live Event Let's Go! Blu-ray sold more copies (22,000) in one week than Namie Amuro Best Fiction Tour 2008-2009 has sold (21,000) since September of last year.

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