Also, since it only had 3 days of sales in its first raning week, a much higher percentage of sales appeared in the second week than is usual.
Hmm... I wouldn't say 7k as impressive(especially considering the price. Also, simultaneous BD release is always less cost effective compared to DVD only), but I'd say it's very good for this type of shows. By the way, higher second week sales might also be due to low stock on the first week. I believe it was temporarily out of stock at amazon as well. Anyways, I hope numbers don't drop on the second volume.
One Piece was impressive indeed. Interesting, because I actually don't know anyone who bought this movie. It shows the difference in target audience quite clearly, doesn't it?
EDIT: Another interesting thing. One might think Precure would be similar. It sold much less but I saw several people uploading pics of BD on another forum. But no One Piece. Again, shows who the target audience is. ^^
