Japan Top 10 Weekly Anime Blu-ray and DVD Sales Ranking: January 9 – January 15, 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.

Please note that the cutoff point on the Blu-ray general category chart for the week was 558 copies whereas for DVD, that would be 396 copies. Therefore, any releases you see below denoted with “N/A” did not meet the threshold to place onto any of the general charts, selling below the amount stated.

The first batch of the fall season releases had underperformed throughout the week and the market in general may only be slightly better the week after with the entrances of Spy x Family Volume 4, Tsurune Movie: Hajimari no Issha and Boku no Hero Academia 6th Season Volume 1 to take note of.

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