With the year coming to a close, we finally have some numbers from Oricon to see what topped the market in 2017.


Best Selling Overall Franchises:

1: One Piece

2: your name.


4: Touken Ranbu

5: Attack on Titan

Few surprises, although with Touken Ranbu making the top 5 I assume media aimed at a female audiences in Japan are doing pretty good.


Best Selling Anime in General:

1: your name.

2: Yuri!!! on Ice

3: Granblue Fantasy the Animation

4: Love Live! Sunshine!!

5: Utano Princesama: Legend Star

I am omitting any non-Japanese works as this this list is focused solely on anime sales. On a side note, it seems Granblue was actually quite popular. It’s sort of sad it didn’t get more exposure in the west but hopefully someone can make a decent home video release at some point, assuming they’re allowed <sigh>


Best Selling Anime BDs:

1: your name. Standard Edition + Collector’s Edition and Special Edition

2: Shin Godzilla Special Edition and Regular Edition

3: Sward Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale

4: Love Live! Sunshine!! vol. 7 Special Edition

5: Yuri!!! on Ice vol. 6

I am omitting all non-Japanese works as I am focusing solely on anime.


Best Selling Anime DVDs:

1: your name. Standard Edition

2: Resident Evil: the Final Chapter

3: The Full-Time Wife Escapist

4: My Neighbor Totoro

5: In this Corner of the World

Again, this list is omitting non-Japanese animation as I am focusing solely on anime titles.


Best Selling CD Albums:

1: Bootleg

2: MANKAI Kaika Sengen (A3!)

3: Ashita-Iro World End

4: Oh! SkaTra!!! Yuri!!! on Ice / Original Skate Song Collection

5: your name.


Best Selling CD Singles:

1: OVER THE TOP (Time Bokan 24)

2: Bagutte Iijan (Kamiwaza Wanda)

3: Seimei/Still Alive (Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare)

4: God’s S.T.A.R. (Utano Princesama: Legend Star)

5: Bokura Kyō mo Ikiteiru (Monster Hunter Stories Ride on)
