I just wanted to verbally support the song, because I like it.

May 25, 2016 11:43 AM by TrashDax

@hpulley Yeah, I act like a generic cookie-cutter self-insert dumb harem MC here. Just kidding
I thought trashdax knew that ED Bakuon is selling there very well yet it's sales are not recorded in the Oricon charts. And then after you said that 266,778 are not sold, I thought people in Japan "pre-ordered" 266,778 items but cancelled it. I must be overthinking.

Why did TrashDax asked about being #1 and what's 266778?

That was supposed to be a joke. The #1 selling CD this week sold 266,777 copies so I was joking that Bakuon was not #1 because it didn't sell more copies. So much for my career as a comedian...

*6. *22,850 *,*22,850 Genki Zenkai DAY! DAY! DAY by CYaRon!

Well.. I didn't really expect that a new sub unit of aqours can sell as much as the whole unit so this is still actually pretty impressive for a debut single considering that their is no anime or live concerts at all to feed the aqours hype.

I expect bigger figures from aqours sub units in the coming weeks... especially Guilty Kiss. Lantis is promoting them as the best sub unit of aqours.. let's see if they can be on par with BiBi


It's a bit disappointing to see CYaRon!'s sales at Idolmaster level right now, but we can expect Love Live! SunShine's sales to pick up when the anime starts airing as we saw with µ's. By July they won't be anywhere near their peak though, as they don't have enough songs to have a 1st live concert to boost sales further. When Aqours is also fully integrated into the mobile game, then we'll naturally see another boost in sales, since they can utilise mobile game serial codes, as none of the Aqours or sub-units CDs have any right now.

My point is, Aqours is currently lacking the 3 important pillars which made µ's so successful. These are an anime series, live concerts and full integration into the mobile game. I would say the movie version was responsible for µ's being able to reach their absolute peak, so i'd guess Aqours' absolute peak is nowhere close in sight yet.

Not too bad of a 3rd week for Aqours. Just 255 sales lower than their debut single after 3 weeks of sales. Onwards to gold disc certification for Aqours debut single!

Other Love Live related sales for this week. Best Live collection II should reach the milestone of consecutive charting for a whole year in the coming week, unless the album threshold is too high.

I'm very happy with Aina's 2nd album sales. 10,000 in 2 weeks is quite good as a solo artist. I hope Pile's 4th single does well in the coming week.

Ahh good to see a new anime idol unit on top of the oricon weekly charts... no more competition from µ's and im@s 't average sales is 20+K so Walkure will own this easily for a while

**1,078 *,**1,078 Super Lovers OP "Okaeri." by Yuusuke Yata


Seeing those two on the list brings a huge smile on my face. I'm hoping when both albums come out they keep up the sells high.

Koutetsujou no Kabaneri ED almost got beat by High School Fleet OP. TrySail is really strong. I feel KnK ED is a little low. I don't like Re:Zero OP that much but it's too low.

May 17, 2016 11:41 AM by crx07

Yey!! Wasn't sure how Macross Δ was being received in Japan cos it seems like not many people care for it in MAL. This makes me happy!! (":

*9. *19,557 *,*19,557 Koutetsujou no Kabaneri ED "ninelie" by Aimer with chelly (EGOIST)

I'm also happy to see the ED for Koutetsujou no Kabaneri up there. I think their ending was my favorite for this season. HORRAAYYY!! ^-^b

Fab, had hoped to see it up high but not knowing how Delta is being received in Japan wasn't sure how well it'd sell so am happy to see they've got another hit with a Macross series. Now for the agonizing wait for the album in July.
