Japan Top 10 Weekly Anime Blu-ray and DVD Sales Ranking: October 2 – October 8, 2023

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 Oricon’s daily surveys do not cover all stores in Japan, and some data may be missing from the list provided below. To view the list of stores that participate in Oricon’s surveys, please refer to the link provided (or the post here). If you would like to learn more about Oricon and their tracking methods, you may find additional information here. While I have manually counted the number of stores included in the list below, please be aware that there may be some errors, and not all stores are listed on official websites as many are exclusive sets listed to certain retailers. Therefore, it’s important to keep in mind that the number of stores counted may not fully reflect all retailers that sell the product.

Please note that the cutoff point on the general Blu-ray sales chart for the week was 996 copies and the DVD’s chart, that would be 410 copies. Therefore, any releases below denoted with “N/A” have sold less than the amount stated.

The overall performance of Anime’s discs is not as great as the week before, a typical outcome often seen in the early weeks of a given month. For this particular month, the result is slightly on the low side for local titles despite the releases of Mononogatari Volume 3 and Level 1 dakedo Unique Skill de Saikyou desu Part 1 among others. The dry spell is expected to last the following week too, however, will return much stronger the week between October 16 and October 22 as titles such as Jujutsu Kaisen 2nd Season and Mushoku Tensei II will be making their 1st volume debuts.

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