milking time
Gochu-Usa Character Song 1 beat Re:Zero ED single sales. I bet it's because of low Re:Zero ED stock.
*4. *,**7,120 *,**7,120 angela "LOVE & CARNIVAL"
Good sales here. I like her song on Sidonia S2 OP.
96. *,***,469 *,*53,878 UNISON SQUARE GARDEN "Dr. Izzy"
When will this be gone? It's pretty amazing that the song "Sugar Song to Bitter Step" is still in Billboard Japan Hot 100 after more than a year without being dropped on the chart.
12. *,**4,072 *,**4,072 Kana Hanazawa "KANAight ~Kana Hanazawa Character Song Hyper Chrinicle Mix~"
75. *,***,582 *,***,582 Yoshino Nanjo OP/ED DJCD "Yoshino Nanjo no Jormedia 3
I don't know if these sales are just low or it's just as expected.
46. *,**1,897 *,**1,897 Berserk (2016) ED "Meimoku no Kanata" by Nagi Yanagi
Compare it to Oregairu S2 OP "Harumodoki" debut sales (11,561 units sold, ranked 8th).

I really like ELISA's ED in the anime but it isn't something I would listen to on its own; perhaps Japanese fans feel the same way? Sadly for me, the new Berserk anime turned me off of anything related to it; again, not sure if Japanese fans feel similarly.

I suppose I can agree re ELISAs ED and yeah I could see a negative reception to Berserk having a similar effect on the singers of the OP and ED but like yourself I have no idea how it has been received in Japan.

Other Love Live! related sales for this week.

We should see in a few days if Aqours has shipped enough copies to achieve their first gold disc certification from the RIAJ, but nevertheless it's a long road ahead for them, since Love Live! had 11 gold disc certifications (9 for μ's, and 2 for BiBi).

μ's Best Live collection finally reaches 175 weeks charted (145 of that was consecutive), out of the 191 weeks since its release back in 2013. It also has sold 16x its first week sales of 9,090 copies as of this week.

Great to see T.M.Revolutions new single with strong first week sales. Wish I could say the same about ELISA and Nagi Yanagis new singles. The former especially seem awfully low which is a shame.
