I can't think of any other late-night/midnight anime franchise to achieve such a feat, besides K-ON!. Idolmaster is nowhere close since it only has 1 CD above 50K sales so far, and thus has 0 gold disc certifications. UtaPri may have a few, but not as high as 8, and the Madoka CDs may have a few since 5 of its CDs sold above 50K.

the song "ANTI-HERO" by SEKAI NO OWARI is good but the music does not fit the theme of the show. the lyric message quite hits it, though.

I think "Rebirth-day" is the the best seller of Ayahi' singles

in 2013 another Symphogear song, Next Destination peaked at#12

(12. Next Destination – Ayahi Takagaki (08/14/2013) (9,154).)


this time"Rebirth-day" is better.

Very good news for Symphogear GX, I don't have worry about bad sales for anything relating to that anime same with the Cinderella Master stuff from Idolm@ster, that SideM stuff is selling well, I don't care for it but still good news.
