Glad to see Ajin's theme song being relevant on the list.


All of this.

Now if only it was relevant to the subbers. .. qq.

Feb 17, 2016 7:54 AM by Konoetan

yup. Ajin's awesome OP is here as expected!

also, that MAN WITH A MISSION album, though.

Feb 17, 2016 6:04 AM by raviel_ken

no 50+K sales this week? Moment ring it's your time to shine! lol xD happy for the 1st rank though.

Ucchi's album sale is pretty low.. 14k overall for her 2 albums but pretty decent.

Question: Which is more profitable for a music artist.. singles or albums?

Feb 16, 2016 2:59 PM by jayvee2016

Hopefully the Gintama OP and ED can hit the top ten once it comes out on March 2nd. Ajin's OP is dope.

Can't wait for it, since it will sell more than the OP.

Other Love Live related sales this week. Best Live collection finally reached 140K Oricon sales after 158 weeks of charting. Of course the number of shipped copies is higher than that, but great to see this milestone achieved.

This week did not show any single?

Feb 16, 2016 5:20 AM by MMMacross

Oso-san at the top! Sweet. POSA really high up too. I heard the album the other day and I feel sad that only Toshi and Mamo sung most of it T_T Wanted to hear Tatsun and Egutan really badly.

Both Tsukiuta CDs did well too. It's sad cuz it's just a rehash of the old CDs but compiled together >_>

*8. **7,272 *,**7,272 Aya Uchida "Sweet Tears"
*9. **7,251 *,**7,251 Aya Uchida "Bitter Kiss"


Aya's albums started out really well on the first 2 days of ranking, but her ranking drops heavily after due to stock issues at Amazon JP and other retailers. Hopefully the stock issues are resolved, because she should've easily passed 10K if things were adequately stocked.
Still just reseller stock on Amazon. JP Columbia really dropped the ball on this one, didn't print enough discs by a wide margin.

Ah well, looking at the album list she had absolutely no chance of a news article with a double 10K album sales figure anyway. 3rd place nearly 100K this week. Tough luck.

It's interesting to see several MAN WITH A MISSION albums coming back with new album release. I want to listen to the duet (bonus track) between Nissy and Nick Carter. I want that one group new song from Boyfriend (Kari) album. An album for Zard!

It seems like Norn9 ED is underrated. I read from a topic on the db that mny people says the only good thing about the anime is OP, and nothing about ED... I've been wanting to ask "how about ED??"

Also, it was just announced that AOP received Special Award of Seiyuu Awards with Osomatsu-san OP, which is staying strong.

Feb 16, 2016 1:28 AM by tsubasalover

Expected Osomatsu-san to rank pretty high again.
