Thanks to Fate/ZERO’s official website, foreign fans who have imported the first box from international Japanese retail sites such as CDJapan and Amiami etc can now jump for joy (though their wallets probably won’t lol) and put in their pre-orders. Release date and packaging details after the cut as well as Japanese store exclusive bonuses.

Like with the first box, there will also be a special manufacturer’s pre-order bonus of a set of posters only available from Animate, Gamers, Sofmap & Toranoana. Currently it states that the set will contain 7 of them but judging from the actual bonus posters from the first box, they could change it to 14 or some other number closer to the release date. The deadline to obtain these is to pre-order the boxset from any of the four retailers mentioned above by the 10th July, 2012.
And as usual, store exclusive bonus items have been announced for a number of Japanese exclusive retailers though only a few have put up their listings for the boxset so far.

I am so tempted to use my 17,000 points on Animate to get this @ nearly 50% off RRP XD. Then again, I think I’ll let it accumulate to at least 20,000 with my on-going orders for Ano Natsu and Shana III BDs before I make my pre-order over there.
