Top Sales According to Series for the Month of September 2022

The series chart for the month of September is topped by ARASHI Anniversary Tour at 2,827.17 million yen (≈19.53 million USD) that is driven by sales of its Blu-rays which saw a massive 363,014 copies sold in the span of just 4 days when it was released back on September 15. The week where it appeared on the weekly sales chart, its Video segment alone made an impressive contribution of 2,787.57 million yen (≈19.26 million USD) in sales. This would also mean that it saw a drastic fall in sales the week between September 19 and 25 which would amount to just 39.6 million yen (≈273.58 thousand USD).

It is thanks to the amazing 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. In addition, you can check out the respective chart via Google chart at the bottom of the post.

Coming in 2nd is Haikyuu!! at 1,214.64 million yen (≈8.39 million USD), a very strong outcome indeed which is brought upon the release of its Haikyuu!! 10th Chronicles volume that sold 133,062 copies in its first 3 days. What makes its performance even more jaw dropping would be the price of its Limited Edition copies at 7,445 yen (≈51.83 USD), the price of around a single Anime volume which contributed to nearly 80% of its sales in the first 3 days of its release, driving up its series sales for the week. Between August 29 and September 4, the series sold 872.64 million yen (≈6.03 million USD) worth of physical products tracked by Oricon and sold a further 243.27 million yen (≈1.68 million USD) the week after before being jettisoned out of the series chart the following week (between September 12 and September 25) where sales slow down even to just 98.73 million yen (≈682.07 thousand USD). Note that Manga is its biggest contributor to sales for the month while sales from its Video, Music, Books and Novels were also considered.

Then, Jujutsu Kaisen settles in for the 3rd spot at 1,117.98 million yen (≈7.72 million USD) due to incredible performance of its Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Movie discs which sold 149,908 copies sold in its first 5 days. Sales are expected to slow down further in the coming weeks, but the series is expected to continue to have a strong presence on the series chart the week after. Note that unlike Haikyuu!!, Jujutsu Kaisen’s sales for the month is largely thanks to its Video segment whereas its Music, Books, Novels and Manga segments were considered, however, they are not significant contributors according to Oricon.
