Oricon released a market report of the DVD & Blu-ray media in 2009. The total sales of the DVD and Blu-ray in Japan increased by 6.4% compared to the last year's number. Anime!Anime! attributed the recovery to the expansion of the anime Blu-ray market.

Very good news for the domestic anime market. I'm still quite worried about the shrinking population and aging demographic situation, but for now at least it looks like the anime industry is doing fairly well.

They should probably thank the otaku, Bakemonogatari and K-ON! for that.

The combined sale of those two is like ;AAAAA;

Well, probably got to thanks the various BD versions of Live Tours (namely Nana, Yukarin and Minorin)

Yummy BD. I have yet to buy anything called BD and it doesn't look like I will this year. Hopefully next year.

I'm not sure this success will continue. A lot of the BD sales this year must have been people upgrading their DVDs to BDs and that won't continue forever. Here's hoping I'm wrong.

I'm happy Aniplex is doing so good. Good animation seems to finally be rewarded with Bluray.

Sale of more PS3s recently mean Blu-Ray sales is due to improve again next year.

Blu-ray is really 2 years into its lifespan, and is all ready set to take over the industry.

one has to remember though that the retail price for BD is 10 dollars more or the JP equivalent. that also has a large effect on the sales number. unless they are talking about units sold.
