[There are gaps in the chart above because non-animated Blu-ray Disc releases are not included. 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 unverified, anonymous sources.]
