Japan’s Weekly Blu-ray & DVD Anime Rankings Ending July 5th, 2015

Japan’s Weekly Blu-ray & DVD Anime Rankings Ending July 5th, 2015 The latest sales rankings are in from Japan for the anime DVD and Blu-ray releases and the power of music has compelled fans. While there’s always those that can’t understand how new seasons of series like Uta no Prince-sama get made, the sales charts for music and merchandise is pretty significant. Case in point with the first volume released during this period that has a bundled CD with it, which means the Blu-ray release hits a staggering 31,000 copies and the DVD hits 18,000 copies. Yup, that’s why we see season four on the way.

Past that, the Blu-ray chart hsa some good movement with the new Arpeggio of Blue Steel film coming in at second place with nearly 11,000 copies for its limited edition release and the 5th volume of Saenai remind us why it’s getting another season. There’s a lot of low selling releases this week and some box set editions and carryovers, so it’s pretty weak all around with what’s going on here.
