This means 4933 copies were sold on the march 12-18th week, and with previous week it was a total of 47623 copies... so I guess this answers your question XD?
This is the japanese version at least, and for the japanese otaku market it's price is not higher than your usual bd releases. It may seems expensive at first because it comes with all 13 episodes in it. If it was separated in volumes with 2-3 episodes, it would be on the lines of 6-7 volumes. And the price of each volume together would be around the price of that box.

All in all, this does means the anime is selling tremendously, which I think it deserve.
Hmm, maybe so... Just shows how many hardcore fans there are out there. XD

You talking bout TYPE-FAGS, Meta.
As far as I concern, there are even plans for MMORPG based on Nasuverse just simply because Nasuverse is just that famous......

Fate/Zero ep 14Show
Well, that was easily the best episode of anime I've seen this year so far, and both the new OP and ED (Kiritsugu x Iri <3) are glorious. I've already read the novel but it's no less exciting than if I'd have been watching this not knowing what to expect. Time to start waiting for the next episode I guess.

Episode 14Show
'Second season' starts and it's already epic!!~
Ryunosuke died, so I think Caster won't survive the next episode. But man, if this goes on like this, this will hands down be the best anime of the year!~
And I love the OP and ED yet again (like the previous ones)

I actually found this to be the 'weakest' part of the second half in the novel (still awesome, but better will come) so it might actually come down as the best anime of the year, though it's still too early to say that. (Though my hugely biased self will most likely maintain that opinion.)

Fate/zero - Episode 14Show
The visuals are as stunning as ever (although I'm still severely creeped out by the "thing" that Caster's in).
It was amusing to see three battles going on simultaneously - Tokiomi vs Kariya, Gilgamesh vs. Berserker, Caster vs. Others.

New OP = Old OP (Both are excellent)
New ED < Old ED

Sooo... The thing with Caster will go on for yet ANOTHER episode? Jesus, this is just dragging on for too long already.

It was still an awesome episode. I liked it a lot.

Oh, and Tokiomi's both an asshole and a pussy.

Meh, the greatest scene on the second part would be Gilgamesh vs Alexander. So in a point, yeah Dusk........
Episode 14Show
Let see:
- Ryonuusuke the bishie dies a wonderful death. Well, he at least dies happily
- Berserker vs Gilgamesh. DUDE, BERSERKER TOTALLY AWESOME WITH HIS NP~!
- Tokiomi vs Kariya. Poor Kariya. Of all the people in this war, his cause is the most heartwarming, yet he has to face the cruel reality of mages in Nasuverse........
- Caster. GO GET EM, TENTACLE RAPE~!

In any case, lets us wait for Rider to summon IH and curbstomp Caster :cool:

Battle resumed.
Zero Ep. 14Show
It's a raid of Caster as the boss.
Berserker team only chases Archer team. Both can't understand the other.
Ryuunosuke is weak, and enjoys his own death...
But Caster won't stop, now.

New ED is not better.

I'm surprised so many people dislike the new OP/ED. I think they are a wonderful fit to the visuals of their respective segments and sound a bit less generic-anime-ish. Maybe I just played the old ones out, but I prefer the new.

Fate Zero specialsShow
wonder what family does T-chan/Zecchan belongs to? o.o
certainly not with the Einzberns or the Tohsakas.. and I think not from the Makiris as well o.o (but she somehow makes me remind of Taiga)
"Irisviel: You're so close to turning me into a lesbian".. oh no! you're so pretty to be one.. ._.
"Zecchan: So you're a fake among fakes." LOL! you got him :ascii120:
F/Z Ep. 14Show
People starts to flock where the monster emerges.. Even the air force arrived but was later consumed by the monster..
Saber and Rider tries their best to stop it.. Archer uses his power but got bored easily..
Berserker also enters the battle and uses the remaining fighter plane as a weapon to fight against Archer, while Tokiomi faces Kariya... Archer blocks whatever Berserker throws at him, without breaking even a sweat..
Ryounosuke dies being shot by Kiritsugu.. It is revealed that Saber possess the power to defeat the monster, but only if Lancer's curse is lifted from her..

Fate/Zero Episode 15Show
The animation still amazes me, it's really top-class!~
Now Caster is out (after some Berserker trolling :p)
I'm really interested in what will happen next, the tension can only rise from now on!~ >:3
And like most people, New Op=Old Op but New Ed < Old Ed

Fate/Zero episode 15Show
Great as always, and I loved the version of 'Sword of Promised Victory' that played just before Saber unleashed Excalibur. Also, it was awesome to see Jeanne animated, makes we wonder if Fate/Apocrypha will ever get an anime adaptation... I hope the next episode gets up to where I think it will, it was one of my favourite parts of the novel.

Holy. Shit. This episode was one massive orgasm for me. Holy fucking shit, that was too awesome for words. I don't even know how to begin describing this.

I'm glad the Caster arc appears to be over, though I have to say that Lancer simply breaking his weapon in order to heal Saber's would was a bit anti-climatic... Also, since when does saber need her left hand to use Excalibur? I don't remember that being mentioned in FSN. Speaking of which, Lancer's yellow... lance must be very fragile for him to break it that easily. Or maybe he's just THAT strong.

ExcaliburShow
Saber actually need to hold the base of the sword with both of her hand in order to release all the restriction and allow Excalibur to shine. She can't simply do it with one hand because the energy of the light collected inside Excalibur cannot be controlled easily with a single hand (Saber's at least). If you checked all the time Saber ever used Excalibur, you would realized that she use it by holding the base of the sword while the sword collects the surrounding light.

Can't say the same for Enuma Elish though.....
