@umashikaneko so yeah japanese people listen mostly a japanese things, not that i rant or something.


I would not say Western (mostly English) songs cannot be mega hit and there have been many of mainstream mega hit English songs in this 30 years but yeah most Japanese have very little knowledge of English and probably English songs are having harder time to become mainstream hit in Japan compared with countries where many people have at least basic knowledge of English.

If you want to know what music is popular in Japan you probably should see yeraly iTunes ranking or karaoke or radio ranking or some thing those and definitely not CD sales.

Most Japanese never heard of the vast majority of songs from yearly Top selling CDs but iTunes or karaoke or radio rankings largely coincide with what is widely known/popular in Japan.

Yes they do. They listen "Sheipu obu yuu", "Desupashiito", Jasutin Biibaa songs, Maak Ronson songs, Karuvin Harisu songs, Teiraa Suwifuto songs and other popular Western music. They also listen "Daati Waaku" by Oosutin Mahooni and they also listen popular K-pop songs.
They usually say "shit" when they mention the name of "Despacito". Based on that observation, they have more superior taste.
If you think the Justin Bieber cancer only affects the West, you're wrong. It also affects Japan. Based on that observation, both Japan and the West have shit taste.

You know because they are obsessed with idols and shit, but it looks like the music cancer is on the same level everywhere no matter if west or east.

29. *,**3,381 *,*19,676 DAOKO "Uchiage Hanabi"

Thats all? Thought it would be a hit, at least it is in Youtube.
That song is really a big hit. It's topping on various digital song charts. Probably, the stock of physical CD's is so low or that the ones liking the song are not fond of physical singles.

Selling 1M in the first week is actually normal for AKB48 nowadays. Though it may change in the near future.

13. *,**9,734 *,**9,734 Mrs.GREEN APPLE "WanteD! WanteD!" (Live-Action TV Drama Bokutachi ga Yarimashita Theme Song)

This thing also contains the OP of the anime Nana Maru San Batsu.
I liked all the songs on this single, and I usually don't like at least a song in a single.

Last week:
32. 2,153 2,153 Kakegurui ED "LAYon-theLINE" by D-selections
35. 2,136 2,136 Kakegurui OP "Deal with the devil" by Tia
It should be the other way around.
This week:
87. *576 2,712 Kakegurui OP "Deal with the devil" by Tia
98. *518 2,671 Kakegurui ED "LAYon-theLINE" by D-selections
This looks better.

I didn't see it listed when I checked the official site last week, so I didn't list it here (wanted to confirm before doing so).
I don't know it would be used for it if not for comment that I read on youtube. Well both series is from Bushiroad and I'm happy that band in Bandori have cross the franchise.
