According to Amazon.com, this was the third best-selling new release of the week (for the period of December 31, 2013). The release of the Blu-ray box sets have been met with some criticism from fans and reviewers alike for Funimation's decision to use a 16:9 cropped aspect ratio, resulting in the loss of up to 40 percent of the image, as opposed to the original 4:3 aspect ratio which the show was originally presented on Japanese TV and released on DVD and Blu-ray in Japan. Several months before the release of the Blu Ray DVDs, FUNimation held a survey to ask fans which aspect ratio they wished for the Blu Ray sets to be released on[1] and the most popular answer turned out to be 16:9 cropped in favor of the original 4:3 aspect ratio.
