Anime helping drive Blu-ray sales in Japan

According to Amazon Japan, Blu-ray sales have seen a prominent increase over last year. Interestingly enough, five of the Top 10 best selling movies are animated titles.

With the list also including other movies such as Resident Evil: The High Definition Trilogy and I Am Legend, Amazon Japan went on record to state, "Many software manufactures consider that 'action' is the genre that can make the most of BD. The BD share is expected to grow among new titles especially in this genre from now on."
