05.18.03 - 4:20 PM

With only two new entries making their way into the TOP 50 and the best selling title selling a mere 25,230 copies, calling this week's edition of Japanese sales charts low-key would be an exaggeration.

In the meantime, Bandai's PlayStation One title and last week's No.1 From TV Animation One Piece Oceans Dream dropped to spot 4, adding 20,943 copies to achieve a total of 82,231 copies.
