Fun With Numbers: The Wind Rises Week 1 Sales (Plus Princess Mononoke BDs)

Small update for 2 relevant releases, which naturally went untracked and thus can’t be fitted to my amazon formula. The first week of sales data for the US release of The Wind Rises is out, clocking in at 53,698 units (40,818 BD/12,880 DVD). A BD release of Princess Mononoke also sold 29,913 BDs (also moving 30,169-29,913=256 DVDs) in the same week.

For some points of comparison, Laputa’s BD rerelease sold 12,611 week 1 copies, From Up on Poppy Hill sold 33,102 week 1 copies, Arietty sold 264,252 week 1 copies, and Howl’s Moving Castle sold 193,006 week 1 copies.
