Japan Top 10 Weekly Anime Blu-ray and DVD Sales Ranking: January 16 – January 22, 2022

There have been some changes to the reporting style here on the Blog. Please refer to the post here for further information.

It is thanks to the wonderful people 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). To access the sales data, be sure to click on the “Analytics” accordion and then click “Chart”. This should bring you to the Google chart page that contains the latest available sales data.

Note that the cutoff pont on the Blu-ray general chart for the week was 863 copies sold while for DVD, that would be 362 copies. Therefore, those denoted with “N/A” did not meet the threshold to see themselves on the two charts and have therefore sold less than the amount stated.

The overall performance of Anime discs for the week improved from last week’s and will be a lot stronger the week after with the release of popular titles such as Bocchi the Rock Volume 2, Lycoris Recoil Volume 3, Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e 2nd Season Volume 2 and many more.

Without further ado, below are the Top 10 and Top 20 Anime Blu-rays and DVDs for the week:
