According to Oricon Biz, the video media sales of Anime and Tokusatsu increased 14% in the first half of 2010, compared with the year-earlier period. The Blu-ray sales by copies have risen 2.5 times while the DVD sales dropped by 2.9%.

The great hit of Evangelion: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance (Blu-ray 411,000 copies, DVD 337,000 copies) has largely contributed to the growth of the sales. Anime & Tokusatsu category made up 50.6% of the total Blu-ray market.

Great news, Im surprised they're still selling as many DVD's as they are. I thought the format was pretty much dead in Japan- when I was over there blu-rays took up most of the shelves.

Always good news to see anime doing well. It's a shame though that Blu-ray discs cost so much more than DVDs in most places.

Anime making up 50% of the Blu-Ray market, this is a very good step in the right direction. I'm buying boxsets of 2 of the summer anime that I like the most once they come out depending on how I like the ones I'm currently watching.

Finally, some good industry news. I am surprised Blu-ray is already outselling DVD, I thought it would take a lot longer. I guess in five years or so Blu-ray may well be the standard.

wel BD are now starting to get cheap. i see some 9.99 movies at stores and such so i expect that as companies start to make back their money in the investment debacle when HD disks were also available, and as HD players and TVs continue to get cheaper, BD will overtake and quite possibly destroy DVDs the same way DVDs destroyed VHS. ah the irony.

as for the sales, this is good thing as it will encourage producers to invest in other medias and more obscure or unknown titles.

Of course Blu-Ray wins. High Def. is food for our eyes. *Nom nom nom*

But seriously, I'm glad the anime industry is doing well.

That's good news.

For a long time now it seems all I've been hearing is doom and gloom concerning how the industry's doing. So it's really great to hear something positive.

Yeah, take that RIAA and their equals bullshitting about how the internet is killing the physical mediums.

Kind of how record companies have bullshitted about them losing customers, despite increasing sales and profits every year.
