Weekly Oricon Chart: Albums/Singles/Music-DVDs



Popular dance and vocal group, EXILE have topped the albums chart again for the 3rd consecutive week with "EXILE JAPAN/Solo." This is the first time they achieved this feat since their debut in September 2001. The last time a group achieved this was 4 years ago by Kobukuro with "5296" (4 consecutive weeks at no.1 from 31st December 2007 until 21st January 2008).

In the singles chart, popular Johnnys duo, KinKi Kids extended their own Guiness World Book of Records with their 32nd consecutive no.1 single since debut, "Kawatta Katachi no Ishi." Successful producer, Akimoto Yasushi wrote the lyrics to the title track. Their debut single, "Garasu no Shounen" debuted at no.1 in July 1997.

Meanwhile, popular rock band, RADWIMPS achieved simultaneous no.1 ranking in both overall DVD and Blu-Ray Disc (BD) charts for the first time with "Zettai Enmei." Since the beginning of BD chart inception in July 2008, this is only the second time for any male group or soloist to achieve this since Mr.Children did it with "Mr.Children TOUR 2011 SENSE" last year (released on November 23rd). For RADWIMPS, the last time they achieved the no.1 position in the music-DVD chart was 4 years and 11 months ago with "RADWIMPS 4.5" (released in July 2007).

Posting the top 30 albums/singles and the top 10 music-DVDs. The second column in the top 10 refers to sales in 2012. New release in bold.
