「錯覚CROSSROADS」is the 2nd BiBi CD and the 10th Love Live! CD, to be gold disc certified by the RIAJ, for shipping > 100,000 copies:
http://www.riaj.or.jp/f/data/cert/gd.html

This is definitely more evidence that the RIAJ may have forgotten that「HEART to HEART!」by μ's exists...

51,352 *76,905 *16 錯覚CROSSROADS (BiBi) 16/01/20 [Gold disc certification from the RIAJ in Apr 2016]

How can something with 98,468 sales not have gold disc certification, when BiBi's 76,905 sales CD has shipped > 100,000 copies? This is so bizarre. However, this could also mean that Aqours may be able to get gold disc certification for its debut single, if the boost from the anime in July is big enough to bring its sales to around 77,000.

For a sub unit of a bigger group.. BiBi sure is overpowered :3 I can bet BiBi can beat normal anisong groups without much problems at all.

Heart to Heart should be gold disc too!

*8. *8,485 *,*55,320 Koi ni Naritai AQUARIUM by Aqours
54. **,724 *,*70,251 Kimi no Kokoro wa Kagayaiteru kai? by Aqours


Bigger second week for Aqours' 2nd single compared to their debut single, shrinking the gap to 760 (55,320 vs 56,080) after 2 weeks of sales. I guess there was some sort of stock issue at storefront last week, so it is a relief that the second week sales also did not drop.

And there we have it. The Aqours' debut single finally hits 70,000 sales, and it took only 6.5 months to do so. Idolmaster has yet to achieve the feat, even after being around for more than 10 years, so that is amazing for Aqours with a cast of rookie seiyuu.

74. **,527 *,134,805 MOMENT RING by μ's (Final Single)


MOMENT RING is less than 2,000 sales behind K-ON!'s NO,Thank You! now, at 134,805 vs 136,679.

Other Love Live related sales for this week. Best Live collection II is approaching the 1 year of continuous charting milestone, which was also achieved by Best Live collection (which charted for 145 weeks in a row).

Great first week sales for Aina, beating out her first album in terms of first week sales.

*8,420 *10,254 **5 First Sweet Wave (楠田亜衣奈) 15/10/07


Wow.. aqours is gaining mometum faster than I expected. I am guessing they can get 2 or 3 consecutive gold discs once the anime starts airing. The standard of Love Live is really on a different level.. a rookie group has accomplished what a veteran group failed to do.

Also how come kussun can sell that much? I am pretty suprised.. Pile's album can not sale as high as that :\
