Arashi set a new drama DVD sales record

Arashi’s drama DVD “最後の約束(Saigo no Yakusoku – Last Promise)” has sold almost twice as many DVDs as any other in Japanese history in its first week, revealed figures from Oricon DVD weekly ranking released today.

The Mainichi Shinbum Digital reported that since the DVD went on sale on June 2, 126,000 copies had been sold.  It is the first time drama DVD sales have exceeded 100,000 copies in its first week.

The previous record for domestically-made drama DVDs was 75,000 copies for “ROOKIES”, and for internationally-made drama DVDs, 41,000 copies for “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 1 Vol. 1”.

This is the second DVD record set by Arashi, who had set a new sales record with their music DVD “ARASHI Anniversary 5*10” in April.

“最後の約束” is a suspense drama starring all five Arashi members, and was screened on air in January.  The DVD includes the drama itself, behind the scenes footage, extended interviews, and special footage from Satoshi Ohno and Masaki Aiba’s birthday celebrations.  The DVD is currently selling for 8190 yen.
