Oricon Communications reports that Evangelion:2.22 You Can Not Advance (Evangelion Shin Gekijōban: Ha) has sold 14,000 more copies during the June 7-13 week to top the Blu-ray Disc sales chart for the third week in a row. The second film in Hideaki Anno and Khara's four-film remake of Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series has now sold 411,000 copies — the most copies for any Blu-ray release in Japan. (In its first week of sales, the film had already topped the previous record holder, the 351,000 copies of Michael Jackson's This Is It film.)

The special comic edition for Tae-Gyun Kim's live-action film adaptation of Kōji Matsumoto's Higanjima supernatural horror manga debuted at #12. In addition to the actual film, this limited-edition first pressing includes an extras DVD and a special edition of Matsumoto's manga.
