Kis-My-Ft2 take Recochoku by storm, set yet another record
Kis-My-Ft2's new album is currently taking up half of Recochoku's Chaku-uta daily chart top ten according to March 27 ranking.
This follows the achievement Kis-My-Ft2 snagged recently with their single, "SHE! HER! HER" of having three consecutive #1s on Oricon's singles chart since debut. This feat hadn't been achieved for three years and eight months.
The group has also seen success outside of music releases with their recent CM, featuring the members transformed into females showing their "kiss faces," becoming a hot topic and discussion spreading on the commercial.
As stated, tracks from the group's latest album have taken up five of the top ten spots on the Recochoku Chaku-uta chart. This is the first time an act has achieved this in the 12-year history of the music distribution service.
This feat is such a brilliant achievement that it is being said that another act achieving it in the future is quite difficult to imagine.
The physical release has also been seeing brisk sales on its release day (T/N: 143,045 copies in its first day according to Oricon). From the group's formation until debut was approximately seven years, and from now they will certainly be garnering more and attention.
