dang.. 51k for BiBi. is that lower than their previous single? :(

It is lower. See Ejc's post from the Love Live club:
http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1156141&show=0#msg30226161

Fuyu ga kureta Yokan did 58K in its first week. It seems indeed that Muse has peaked so I guess they are putting out their final singles at the right time. I hope Aqours can take the big lead Muse gave them and carry the torch of LoveLive Sunshine to an even bigger success but Muse set the hurdles very high so it will be a challenge.


well I am still happy for the 51k of BiBi.. but I was hoping they reach 60 to 70K for the debut xD afterall the last single of printemps and lily white are higher than their previous single.

True, aqours will face quite a challenge. The shadow of µ's is too big and it will take time imo before they can even match µ's mainstream music level. Hands down for aqours if they can get invited yearly to kouhaku or perform regularly at tokyo dome (y)

Interesting. This feels like an underrated song from the band.

And also, I hope Asian Kungfu Generation gets more attention this year.

Jan 26, 2016 5:17 AM by badwolf45f

Ayyy lmao, i see Asian Kungfu Generation in there, i rarely see them in this kind of chart. Though they just sit at 67th place but it's quite good, Better than nothing.

It's nice to see Shikao Suga's new album on so high, too bad the best is not. VS song from Diabolik Lover is very addicting. Kakihara-san's TsukiUta song is about Curry, which not sure about the full but sounds funny. Loving Durararax2 songs, especially the vocalist of the ED theme also does seiyuu job. Nijiiro Days OP is refreshing, loving it. Wow @ Lev*'s song. :...( @ AAA best album.
