Also glad to see Konobi's ED selling 7k. Is this also because of the singer/voice actress or the anime? Either way, I'm glad the songs are doing well :)


uesaka also voices collette in konobi. I don't think it has much to do with the anime, her inner urge single (shimoneta ED) sold similar as much. she's not a very popular voice actress imo though. 7k is kinda the level for female VAs' singles in general. It's just a strange phenomenon in Japan that VAs songs sell more than (kinda a considerable number of) full-time pros artists.

HEART to HEART! by μ's has finally been gold disc certified by the RIAJ for shipping more than 100,000 copies:
http://www.riaj.or.jp/f/data/cert/gd.html. This makes it the 9th μ's CD to be gold disc certified and 11th Love Live! CD overall (2 were achieved by the sub-unit BiBi).

Now the Top 15 best selling Love Live! CDs looks more reasonable, as HEART to HEART! should've been gold disc certified a long time ago. Only a matter of time for Aqours to get a gold disc certification provided it isn't the same case as HEART to HEART!

GLAY is a popular rock band that's been around for 20+ years. They have a pretty big following and will sell regardless of tie-ups (and they don't do songs for anime often).

*5. 35,561 *,*35,561 Love Live! Sunshine!! IN "Kimeta yo Hand in Hand / Daisuki dattara Daijoubu!" by Aqours
Seriously, I've been listening to Daisuki dattara Daijoubo for like the past 5 days and I can't stop listening to it. Same goes for Kimeta yo Hand in Hand. It's so fucking good. Someone tell me where I can import an Aquors album because I feel guilty downloading it off Youtube and I really want to support Aquors.

Never mind..I found Aozora Jumping Heart and Kimeta yo Hand in Hand albums for about $12 each on Amazon JP xD.

So the first Insert Song single for Aqours started out lower than the first Insert Song single for μ's... that doesn't look like a good sign. The ED single (out on Aug 24) and the second Insert Song single will be the telling point.


Nope, it is not a good sign.
Aqours's insert songs are better though.

Actually, the band singing the OPs is GLAY, and one of the OPs + CD title is Deathtopia.

Aozora Jumping Heart is ahead of the first and second Aqours singles as of their 3rd week sales, which were 58,671 and 58,416 respectively. So I guess that's looking better for Aqours.

Other Love Live! related sales for this week. So Aqours' 1st single has passed BiBi's final sub-unit single in terms of Oricon sales (77,242 vs 76,905), and that BiBi single was gold disc certified by the RIAJ. Depends entirely on how many copies were shipped overseas, as those are not included in Oricon's released numbers. μ's Best II just barely missed out the 150,000 Oricon sales milestone, but it should reach it if the CD Albums Top 300 threshold isn't too high this coming week.
