Japan's Animation DVD Ranking, May 13-19

posted on 2013-05-21 05:15 EDT
Girls & Panzer puts 3 documentaries in overall top 10; Evangelion:3.33, Chūnibyō demo Koi ga Shitai!, Initial D, Kamisama Kiss, Naruto in anime's top 5

An audio commentary by Girls und Panzer character Yukari Akiyama helped put Yoku Wakaru! Rikujō Jieitai ~Riku no Ōja! Nihon o Mamoru Sensha no Rekishi, NHK's historical documentary on Japan's Ground Self-Defense Force tanks, at the top of Oricon's overall weekly DVD chart. It sold 14,796 more copies in its second week for a new total of 16,283. In the process, it rose from #25 to #1, despite being sold only in convenience stores.

Since people who bought all three of the Yoku Wakaru! Jieitai DVDs (for Ground, Air, and Maritime Self-Defense Forces) received a free Kizuna ~Kizuna no Kioku documentary about the Self-Defense Forces' response to the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster, the other two DVDs ranked in the weekly top 10 also. (They were the top three DVDs on the daily chart on May 19.) 10 photograph panels of the Type-10 tank, autographed by Yukari's voice actress Ikumi Nakagami, are being given away by random drawing to buyers of all three DVDs.
