CD Single

*8. 14,221 *,*14,221 THE IDOLM@STER PLATINUM MASTER 02 "Bokudachi no Resistance" by Miki Hoshii (CV: Akiko Hasegawa), Chihaya Chisaragi (CV: Asami Imai), Yayoi Takatsuki (CV: Mayako Nigo), Hibiki Ganaha (CV: Manami Numakura)


Only a small mistake in the name of the character:

Chihaya Chisaragi ----> Chihaya Kisaragi

Hoping Walkure trap sells as much as Walkure attack is >_< both albums will save the anime from its poor disc sales.


Clearly it will not sell as much as Walkure Attack in the first week, based on the Oricon daily ranking sales. I'm guessing 55~60K first week, unless it recovers over the remaining 3 days of sales. 55~60K is still really good, don't get me wrong, but it may not even reach 100K in the long run if it starts that low.

I can't remember now the Japanese recording artist who recently complained that the Billboard chart was full of idols and anime songs, said it wasn't representative of Japanese music. I think they're wrong though it is perhaps true that anime and idol fans tend to buy physical CDs more than your average listener.
For me, I can't say that Billboard and most especially Oricon perfectly represent the Japanese music due to inflated sales of idol singles but it surely represents what the Japanese are willing to spend to support those who they want to support.
Agreed. I think real fans buy CDs so I think Oricon is accurate but I guess more people just stream it these days and we don't have a streaming music chart yet.

It's so strange. I mean, even youtube video has 34 million views and still growing really fast everyday... That usually indicates the massive hit, but lets see

RADWIMPS album stays strong. I hope Zen Zen Zense will finally top the Billboard Japan charts due to disappointing singles sales. But the unknown #1 in album sales, Aimer and aiko also have that chance.
Nice to see fine sales of Mikako Komatsu single here.
