Japan’s Weekly Blu-ray & DVD Anime Rankings Ending June 28th, 2015

Japan’s Weekly Blu-ray & DVD Anime Rankings Ending June 28th, 2015 The latest sales rankings from Japan have arrived for the home video market with DVD and Blu-ray sales ending the week of June 28th. This week has a number of first volumes arriving within it and there are a lot that didn’t rank all that high when you get down to it. On the positive side, the third installment of Akito the Exiled arrived and hit almost 21,000 copies in its opening week to take the top spot. With two more to go, there’s a good run ahead of it overall. Sword Art Online II continues to do well as does Kantai collection. The biggest new series debut from the spring season is My Romantic Comedy SNAFU Sequel series which lands at 10,000 copies. Show By Rock!! comes across well and it’s also surprising but welcome to see the Angel Beats new box set arriving in the tenth spot. not doing so well is Seraph of the End where it didn’t crack 3000 copies and there’s also Nisekoi: nabbing just under 4000. It’s surprising to see that people didn’t jump more on Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, as it has just 4300 Blu-ray sales, but with the spike in novels, it seems like folks went reading rather than owning.

It’s also worth remembering that with some shows you have to factor in the formats. While Seraph of the End was weak on the Blu-ray side, it did better on the DVD side and the combined sales are certainly solid. General speculation is that women are buying the series more than men and they’re less format purists and more focused on price and ownersehip.
