Strike Witches fans in Japan showed their love by pushing the limited-edition Blu-ray Box reissue to the top of the Oricon sales chart for the week of May 9-15. The rough total ended up at around 5,000 copies. Not bad for a box set that costs 36,750 yen (~ US$451).
Early sales of the set—which is actually an encore pressing of a box that was shipped last June—also managed to land it on SoundScan Japan's top 5 for May 2-8. It was reissued to commemorate the upcoming Strike Witches film, which was first announced via a "Nico Nico Daikaigi 2010 Aki ~Sore wa Lock ka?~" stream last October.
