According to Anime News Network, Oricon has confirmed that Mugen Train sold 268,000 limited-edition Blu-ray Discs on its first day of release on Wednesday, June 16. In addition to that, the anime film sold 218,000 regular-edition DVDs. This brings the home release total to 486,000 discs in just one day.
Not surprisingly, Oricon confirmed that the Demon Slayer movie has topped both the daily Blu-ray Disc and daily DVD sales ranking charts.
