Demon Slayer: Disc sales down in Japan

Don't miss

In the first Japanese disc sales week, the third season of “Demon Slayer” recorded significantly weaker sales figures than its predecessor seasons. We summarize.

Demon Slayer Anime: Declining sales figures

“Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village Arc” sold a total of 13,360 DVDs and Blu-rays in Japan during its first week on sale. While other titles can only dream of such numbers, they are anything but impressive in the case of “Demon Slayer.”

In fact, this is the franchise’s weakest disc sales start to date, after “Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc” set the bar very high with 22,021 disc sales and “Demon Slayer: Mugen Train” with an impressive 30,167 disc sales.

Regardless, fans need not worry, as a sequel to the series has already been announced right after the end of the third season. Nevertheless, there is currently a lot of speculation about the possible reasons for the decline in sales.

On the one hand, streaming services in general, are becoming more and more popular in Japan and the need for a physical version is gradually decreasing. On the other hand, according to knowledgeable fans, the “Swordsmith Village Arc” is the supposed weakest story arc, mainly due to the absence of Zentisu and Inosuke.
