posted on 2011-05-03 20:45 BST
The first Blu-ray Disc volume of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica television anime series sold 53,000 units (rounded to the nearest thousand) to become the #1 television anime release in first-week Blu-ray sales to date. The first Madoka Magica volume supplants the former record-holder, the sixth and final Blu-ray volume of Bakemonogatari (51,000 units). Not incidentally, Akiyuki Shinbo directed both projects.
The first Madoka Magica volume accomplished this feat despite a recall that Aniplex announced on its second official day of sales. It sold 22,000 units on its first day of sales alone, April 27. It also sold 9,097 DVDs during the April 25-May 1 week.
