Top-Selling Animation Blu-ray Discs in Japan: 2010 (Part 1, Updated)

posted on 2010-12-22 15:53 EST
2nd year with Eva on top; Gundam, One Piece, Summer Wars, Nanoha, Bakemonogatari, Fate/stay night, K-ON!, Tales of Vesperia also rank

Update: The Gekijō-ban Macross Frontier: Itsuwari no Utahime Hybrid Pack sold 152,000 copies in just its first week of sales. However, since Bandai Namco Games sold the film/game hybrid disc through game retail channels instead of the traditional Blu-ray Disc retail channels, it did not appear in Oricon's Blu-ray Disc rankings charts. If it did, it would have been at least #4.


For a second year in a row, an Evangelion film topped the annual chart of Blu-ray Disc sales in Japan.

The following chart covers Blu-ray Disc sales in Japan from December 20, 2009 to December 12, 2010.
