In 2019, the number one anime for Blu-ray and DVD (disc) sales is “Manaria Friends”.
The 15-minute animated short, mainly featuring Anne and Glare, characters from the in-game events in the social game “Rage of Bahamut”, took over the reigns with big sales, well ahead of the second place finisher.
The original story depicts the daily life of the two characters, who have a large following, with an original story by the two of them, which both ranked in the top 10 in the 2019 Divine Baja popularity poll, and penetrated not only fans of the original game but also yuri lovers.
The discs of this work contain serial codes for items that can be used in the hit game “Grand Blue Fantasy”, which also seems to have been a catalyst.
Second place went to “Blade of the Demon”, which became a mega-hit of social phenomenon.
This work produced by ufotable became a hot topic due to its amazing art quality, and the episode 19 “Hinokami”, which was called the “God’s Episode”, became a storm of praise even abroad.
The anime sales are also very strong, but the effect on the original manga is even greater than that, the total number of copies sold before the anime adaptation was 3.5 million, but the total number of copies sold has reached 40 million, which is 10 times more than the 3.5 million before the anime adaptation, and the momentum has not waned, and it continues to dominate the Oricon manga rankings from 1st to 18th place.
In third place is “GRANBLUE FANTASY The Animation Season 2,” the sequel to the 2017 hit anime version of Grable.
It’s down significantly from the first season, which was a huge hit with over 50,000 copies sold, but it still marks a good sales figure that’s sure to put it in the top tier for the year.
The special cereal that can be used in the game is still available this time as well.
Fourth place went to “Kemulikusa,” the first original anime directed by Tatsuki and produced by Yaoyorozu since “Kemofre.
Although it is a remake, the unique worldview and the carefully laid out foreshadowing created a unique worldview and created a lot of fans.
Coming in at No. 5 was “Senki Zesshou Symphogear XV”, which is sure to sell more than 10,000 copies on average, following the 3rd and 4th seasons.
The fifth season is said to be the conclusion of the series, which is unusually long-running for an original anime, but what will happen next?
The 6th place “Sword Art Online Alization War of Underworld” is an anime that corresponds to the 2nd and 3rd parts of SAO 3rd season.
This is another long-running work that has been 8 years since its first anime adaptation, but its popularity is still very much alive and well.
No. 7 is “An-san Buru Stars!”, an anime based on an idol development game for women. It is.
Although sales fluctuate greatly depending on the volume, it remains at the top of the list.
The eighth-ranked Fate/Grand Order – Absolute Monster Battle Line Babylonia is the first TV series work based on the FGO original anime, which began airing in the fall of 2019.
Volume 1’s first week sales have surpassed SAO and Ansta, and depending on how things go, it may rank even higher.
No. 9 “KING OF PRISM -Shiny Seven Stars-” is the first TV anime in the Kinpuri series that has been released in theaters.
No. 10 “Azure Lane” is the long-awaited anime adaptation of the popular social game.

It is “One Pan Man” that won the overall first place in the distribution ranking.
Compared to the first season with strong disc sales, the second season seems to have ended in a slump, but the distribution is still going strong.
We can see the possibility of the 3rd season.
Onibanshu came in second place in sales.
Although it is a jump manga, it is overwhelmingly supported by female fans, and it has attracted the attention of both core and light fans, with no dead spots.
The third place is “Shinkenger no Kyojin: Season 3″.

All the titles from 1st to 3rd place are anime with an established reputation for battle scenes, and it is clear which strains are preferred by the users of the distribution system.
Among them, Tensura came in 4th place.
Since the disc, distribution, and comicalization are all doing well, it is natural that the second season was decided.
It is the definitive version of the Narrowcast anime which has gained overwhelming support from the younger generation.
In 5th place is the fifth part of the Jojo series which is enthusiastically supported by old fans.
The quality of the animation was better than the 4th part, and since the story was set in a foreign country, it was supported by foreign fans as well.
Kaguya-sama wa Kuchisetsu wo Soreretai” and “ULTRAMAN” ranked 6th place.
Kaguya-sama was a hit with average disc sales of about 5,000 copies, and distribution was as strong as this, so a second season was decided early on.

ULTRAMAN is available exclusively on Netflix, and this ranking is due to its #1 position on Netflix.
