With this month's release of the third Blu-ray Disc volume from the K-ON!! anime, the overall K-ON! franchise has now topped Bakemonogatari as the #1 selling television anime on Blu-ray. The market survey firm Oricon Communications reports that the third Blu-ray volume, which contains episodes 7-9 and officially went on sale on September 15, sold 28,000 copies during the September 13-19 week. The Blu-ray volumes for both television anime series based on kakifly's manga have now sold a total of 348,000 copies.

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