Japan Top 10 Weekly Anime Blu-ray and DVD Ranking: December 13, 2021 ~ December 19, 2021

Anime releases face tough competition from other non-Anime titles to see only seven of those listed making it onto the Top 20 Blu-ray sales chart. Both spots 1 and 2 are occupied by BanG Dream! films that were released this year in April and June respectively. Episode of Roselia – II: Song I Am. sees slightly better sales at 11,998 copies within its first 5 days while the prequel film, Episode of Roselia – I: Yakusoku is at 11,948 copies. 

It is thanks to the wonderful folks over at Oricon that we get to see these charts on a weekly basis, so be sure to head over to their site here and show them lots of love! Plus, all the data you find below is accessible via Oricon right here (Blu-ray) and here (DVD). Of course, if Google charts are what you prefer, you can find all of their respective charts right at the bottom of the post.

At Number 3 is another film which aired back in June 4th, 2021 at 4,580 copies sold, Sidonia no Kishi: Ai Tsumugu Hoshi. The film is a direct sequel to Daikyuu Wakusei Seneki which aired between April the 11th to June the 27 in 2015. The series is an adaptation of Tsutomu Nihei’s Manga which ended in 2015. If you are interested in the title, you can check out the promotional video of the film right down below.

Then, the first part of Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru: Dai Mankai no Shou places 5th on the chart with 3,594 copies, which is a sequel to the 2017 Anime. Skip over to Number 7 and you will find Visual Prison’s 1st volume at 2,471 copies. Do not let that low number fool you as its DVD is charted first on its very own chart, bringing total copies sold to 4,546 in its first 5 days.

If both BanG Dream! films are considered, the two would see a great 23,946 copies sold with estimated revenue at 191,568,000 yen (≈1.68 million USD) while Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru: Dai Mankai no Shou [Part 1] is at 74,719,260 yen (≈653.70 thousand USD) in sales, partly due to its pricier package. Uma Musume: Pretty Derby (TV) Season 2 two volumes are at 7,011 copies sold, putting its sales for the week at 62,397,900 yen (≈545.95 thousand USD). Note that those that did not make the Top 20 Blu-ray and DVD charts are omitted.

  1. El que hizo la portada de “Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru: Dai Mankai no Sho” es el mismo que hace ilustraciones para Sao, cierto?

    1. Wow look at that DVD sales… I don’t know what to say I mean it’s an original Anime of A1 Picture and …. god bless 86.

      1. Lol, well there is just something about idol and music related content in Japan that tend to do so well… I did sort of expect 86 to do much better in the disc department… 😅 Hopefully it is doing well elsewhere in terms of sales.
