Fate Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works
Fate Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works

The past week in sales in Japan is one that fans have been looking forward to for a bit to see how some of the winter 2015 series would perform, though in the end the dominance came from a fall 2014 series. With Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works getting its box set release, it took the top spot at just under 34,000 copies, which is what was expected. Fate/Zero previously had first week sales of about 45,000 sets, but with this series being a remake, expectations are naturally lowered because of it.

After that, it wasn’t a surprise to see Kantai Collection take the second spot even with fans not caring much for it as there’s event application material inside them gets them to where they want to be in regards to the massively popular franchise. Dog Days’ debuted in the 8th spot with its first volume while the first Gundam Build Fighters Try box set came in at 19th with just under 2300 sets. Testament of Sister New Devil landed in the middle this week with 11th place for the Blu-ray chart.
