Bakemonogatari was severely undershipped, most places were sold out earlier in the week, they were rumored to ship 25k for DVD and Bluray.

Bakemonogatari, Hitagi Crab should in first place. But FUCK YEAH!, otakus proved that ANIPLEX/Kodansha/SHAFT will profit from making a second season. Just waiting...

And I recognize that JUMP-related OVA and Movie is hard to beat.

P.S.: Really? Black Rock Shooter? 90-second trailer?

Any other week and Bakemonogatari would've been a little higher. Although being the only one in the top 5 that released DVD and Blu-ray this week is good.

Bleach is Bleach, and I thought the movie was good.... but putting limited edition and normal edition in the Top 3 is overkill.

Quite an impressive week, Bakemono's blu-ray sells surprise my a lot, I pegged it for around 7500-9000 sells.

Gintama sells well, Bleach movie sells well twice, and FMA is lower than I thought.

dtshyk, K-ON! BD sales on 1st week weren't higher?

Well, Bakemonogatari is, along with K-ON!, the TV anime hit of 2009 in sales matter.

Serious business guys still can rely in impressive Kara no Kyoukai movies sales, XD.

Hmm, I'm a eurofag. Guess I'll have to buy a region-free BD player then.

Do you know if all anime BDs are region coded?

Now the question with Bake is it actually going to have legs like Macross Froniter (Vol1 ended up selling 64,000 copies, another 25,000 after week 1) or be frontloaded like K-ON (Vol1 has only sold another 9,000 in total since week 1).

Since stock was a problem and it's sold out everywhere more than likely it has legs.
