Japan Top 10 Weekly Anime Blu-ray and DVD Sales Ranking: October 9 – October 15, 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 Blu-ray general list for the week was 692 copies whereas on the DVD chart, that would be 416 copies. As such, any releases denoted with “N/A” down below have sold less than the amount stated.

As expected and as mentioned the week before, the turnout for general Anime discs sales were weak between October 9 and October 15 amid a lack of new and notable releases. The following week, however, we will see a more positive outcome as titles such as Jujutsu Kaisen and Mushoku Tensei will make their latest seasons’ volume debuts. The stake will be running high to see how sales for these titles’ latest seasons would compare to their previous seasons.

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