KAT-TUN Break The Records again!

It was revealed that popular group KAT-TUN’s 6th original album, “CHAIN” (released on February 22nd), topped the Oricon Weekly Album Ranking for March 5th with its first week sales of 110,000 copies!

This feat will mark their sixth consecutive album to top the Oricon Album Charts since their first album, “Best of KAT-TUN” (released in March 2006). This record has surpassed rock band The Checker’s record of topping five consecutive albums and with this, KAT-TUN broke the record for the first time in 24 years.

“CHAIN” is their newest album after one year and eight months, since their June 2010 release of “NO MORE PAIN” and will include 17 songs in this jam-packed CD.

Congratulations for this incredible feat, KAT-TUN!


50-50 feelings ngl, sales are decreasing as I expected ;__; . but this is one of their best album so w/e, congrats KAT-TUN and Hyphens

This album is the best they ever released and seriously they deserve much more in term of sells.

Then again, with the very promotion they did, it's only their fanbase that remains. I'm still happy though because they still managed to get first and they seem closer than before. They are having lots of fun, they're happy.

I'm not worried about sales anymore. Clearly, JE isn't dropping them or anything ^___^ They re PV get more quality and same for the songs.


Congrats to the boys <3

true, it is very evident in this album how KAT-TUN is a the peak of their vocal capabilities. yet i still dont know what to think of CHAIN.. i think i need more time.

the sales kinda made me worried, esp the 1st day sales. though i perfectly understand this is just like a normal career slump, i'm a bit worried on how will they be able to regain their huge fanbase and massive support circa 2007-2008. i doubt they can pull off an Arashi, (who climbed back to the top by gaining more and more fans with their personalities and comedy). what made KAT-TUN ultra popular back then was their kick-ass songs that defied the bubblegum pop norm, and yet the songs are crazily catchy, promising music videos, over the top concert gimmicks/fashion, etc.
i guess they need to do something revolutionary again to make ppl notice them as a phenomenon once again. for one thing, work harder on dancing, for pete's sake. i notice the improvements but, at this rate hsj and kisumai will totally pwn them when it comes to choreography.
having said that, congrats KAT-TUN! probably the most important thing to me right now, as a fan, is that they are closer and tighter than ever. they ARE happy and happy to work with each other. that gives me more hope for a better KAT-TUN in the future.
(my, what a long comment.. pls excuse me)

if you mean the support circa 2007-2008, clearly fans then didn't care for their dancing.
I honestly don't want them to dance, just give a kickass PV like DUES or LIPS and it will all be fine.

Yay!!! for my boys! They deserve it and much more!
I love them first for their music, so I'll follow them whatever are the sales and records achieved... But I know it's good for them <3
I'm still waiting for my copies to arrive. It's a long, long way from Japan to Brazil~
