53. **1,003 *,133,212 MOMENT RING by μ’s (Final Single)


Angelic Angel (132,991) has been passed, and now it will probably pass K-ON!'s NO, Thank You! (136,679) in a few months from now.

Other Love Live related sales this week.

Weekly sales / Cumulative sales / Weeks Charted / CD Title
**,335 *68,429 *23 君のこころは輝いてるかい? (Aqours 1stシングル)

**,327 *76,253 *14 錯覚CROSSROADS (BiBi)

**,279 147,678 *48 μ's Best Album Best Live! Collection II
**,272 143,786 168 μ's Best Album Best Live! collection

Aqours nearing that 70,000 sales mark for their debut single. It's quite amazing because the anime has not even started airing yet, and the seiyuu are rookies right now. Quite different from μ's, where Mimorin and Nanjo were already well known. μ's Best Album Collection currently holds the record of consecutive weeks charted at 145 weeks for an anime-related CD, but it is still 9 weeks short of the Ghibli Best Album's 177 non-consecutive weeks charted.

Trio unit single CD covers have been revealed for CYaRon! and AZALEA, but not Guilty Kiss yet.

Ace attorney anime opening is waaaaaaaaaay more popular than I could have ever imagine. Wtf.


It's by a mainstream Johnny's idol group. Those look like the kind of sales a group like that would be getting anyway, with or without the anime connection.


This is true. Looking at Oricon Youtaiju, the first week sales of their previous single (released on 2015/07/29) was 100,502... so the Ace Attorney anime didn't really account for much of that 115,245 first week sales there.

Ace Attorney OP song doing fairly well, more than I had anticipated.

Exactly. Though for a young Johnny's group that number can be considered smaller than usual...
