obviously anime as J-Pop would fill the list


Not quite. If it was just anime CDs, we would not see non-anime related singles from mainstream artists such as AKB48, SKE48, Nogizaka46, etc, every single time on here. MAL changed its guidelines to a blanket criteria of including every single artist that has done at least one anime song, but may have little to no relation to anime. It makes it easier for them I guess, but it just seems lazy to me.

It's strange how radio CDs or game CDs which have artists that have done at least one anime song, is somehow excluded from the list. If you want a list of anime-related singles/albums and other stuff that should not even been excluded, which is complied/filtered by the Japanese sales community... I can link you.


oh no, it's cool. it's just...wow. underestimated japan again. anime being that popular even in music...i mean uta's music is beyond cringe-awful so i can sort of understand the taste of japan, but still. pretty amazing.

the link would be nice, but it all depends on you and if you want to. no big deal.

I'm sorry, it was a mistake. The real Bakuman. Live-Action Movie Theme song was "Shin Takarajima" by Sakanaction. I have already fixed it.

It's interesting to see Piko back in action. I'm glad to see Sakamoto-san's album doing well. and some keeping well.

Edit: Sorry for mixing Bakuman. Live-Action Movie Theme song with another song. I remember searching about it, but ended up labeling on another song. I just watched the live and the genre doesn't really fit with the work.


Sakamoto Maaya is the best singer-seiyuu besides Nana Mizuki & Ayahi Takagaki....

I am also a big fan of her songs......

Idolm@ster Million Live needs an anime with a different director to keep the forced drama to a minimum and also have all of the idols exclusive to the game.

Still nice results for Symphogear there. Nice to see various singles holding onto spots on that list. Would say that while the sales have been pretty consistent between the various songs, Carol's was pretty darn good.
