Crows Zero II, Takashi Miike's second prequel film based on Hiroshi Takahashi's Crows fighting manga, rose back up from #3 to #2 in its third week on SoundScan Japan's chart. According to Oricon, it sold 824 more copies. Miike's first Crows Zero film dropped from #13 to #15. Chris Nahon's live-action film adaptation of Production I.G's Blood: The Last Vampire anime went up from #6 to #4 in its second week. Yatterman Tenko-Mori Blu-ray, the deluxe version of Miike's live-action film adaptation of the Yatterman anime, stayed at #5 in its fourth week.
(SoundScan Japan's methods of surveying home video sales are different from those of the competing firm Oricon, which often lead to differing results between the two.)
