With Kerry away I figured I’d shuffle out of the dark warren that is the licensing world to update people on sales for the last month across the UK in anime!

Some interesting points here and a few explanations beneath – for now though here are the top sellers:

Notes of interest:

- The reason One Piece AND High School of the Dead did not show initially is they came out at the end of May and the first few days of June formed the last part of that month.  We’ve included them as new releases here now and will follow this pattern in future to be fure no titles are missed out.

- To be the top seller this month for overall, you had to sell over 2,000 copies – although we would imagine at £10.01 a set on Amazon there’s not much you can go wrong with there!

- Scarily, the number of the beast was required for the lowest overall seller this month!

- Last Exile sold just under 200 copies to reach the bottom of the chart this month for top 10.

- Bakemonogatari sold just under Last Exile, cutting it from the chart sadly – this is likely due to the disc recalls and is not really a reflection of the sales of the title honestly.  It may well correct itself in coming months, we hope so anyway!

- Shiki also did not rate, on account of selling not as many as even Bakemonogatari sadly!

- There’s a huge gap between the top 3 sellers for new releases and the fourth – easily a drop of almost 600 units!

- Interestingly, One Piece Box 1′s sales for its first month are better than the latest iterations of Bleach – however they are only about 60% of what Dragonball Z Box 1 took in for month 1 and basically comparable with box 13 of Naruto Shippuden (hint – Shippuden is on its 13th box!)  This doesn’t bode horribly for the franchise, but it certainly shows that Luffy and the crew have a lot of catching up to do!

Hopefully an interesting month of information for folk, catch up with everyone again soon!
