posted on 2011-05-17 17:00 EDT
The limited-edition Blu-ray Box reissue for the Strike Witches anime sold about 5,000 copies (rounded to the nearest thousand) to top Oricon's sales chart for the May 9-15 week in Japan. The 36,750-yen (about US$451) box commemorates the upcoming Strike Witches film with an encore pressing of the box that first shipped last June. At that time, the box only reached #6 on the weekly charts.
Early sales of the box reissue actually propelled it onto SoundScan Japan's top 5 chart for May 2-8, even though the official release date was May 10.
