My fav groups at 4, 5, and 27 yay! Congrats
chizzyrei 29th-Jun-2012 09:27 pm (UTC)
SMAP!! :)
yay! Yamapi next week! but why is his song undecided, is that a medley or something?
and btw, did that list covered all Johnny groups from SMAP down to Kisumai?

eskarina77 29th-Jun-2012 10:23 pm (UTC)
It looks like it covered all of them.
And older than SMAP seem to be in Showa period
sibylblack 29th-Jun-2012 09:37 pm (UTC)
KAT-TUN's #666 number... interesting!
harisukaori 29th-Jun-2012 09:41 pm (UTC)
Why is Tohoshinki not on the list? They sold nearly 3 million copies of their singles in Japan O.O
flipangel_88 29th-Jun-2012 10:12 pm (UTC)
I have to agree ... If KARA is on this list so should THSK ...

They have sold a lot since coming to Japan ...
edneichon 29th-Jun-2012 09:45 pm (UTC)
Next week Tomo should be singin Love chace *O*
so glad for all my johnnys in that list.. sp congrats to SMAP & ARASHI <3333
subarunee 29th-Jun-2012 09:59 pm (UTC)
Kisumai on the top 30 in their first year...
super_nezumi 30th-Jun-2012 01:05 pm (UTC)
That's what I was thinking. Very happy to see them already denting the list, the sky's the limit now.
flipangel_88 29th-Jun-2012 10:11 pm (UTC)

Gosh DAMN, WOW!!! way to go, my goodness ... just WOW
shinhw4_girl 29th-Jun-2012 10:21 pm (UTC)
no hamasaki ayumi? o_O
taecish 29th-Jun-2012 11:12 pm (UTC)
she's not really an idol in that sense
eskarina77 29th-Jun-2012 10:24 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad V6 made it to top 10 ♥

arara_chan 29th-Jun-2012 10:25 pm (UTC)
Smap still are the Dai-sempais xDDD
Yay Arashi <3 xD
cleotine 30th-Jun-2012 11:11 am (UTC)
Guess there's nothing shameful to losing only to SMAP cause after all, they're... er, SMAP :)
apneatic_melody 29th-Jun-2012 10:32 pm (UTC)


I just realised that I stan at least 50% of both those lists, what is my life.
linhmy 29th-Jun-2012 11:28 pm (UTC)
Love YOU!
stbluemoon 29th-Jun-2012 10:36 pm (UTC)
To think that cantstop would one day become aoina
edneichon 30th-Jun-2012 12:56 am (UTC)
like Mori's prediction x Smap, nro1 for a loooong time~
leicee 29th-Jun-2012 11:04 pm (UTC)
smap - 21 years since debut and ONLY ~22 million
arashi - 13 years since debut and ONLY ~17 million

AKB - 7 years since debut AND ALREADY ~15 MILLION!!!!!!!!!

by end of this year, akb will be #2, and if they keep this streak in less than 2 years, they'll be #1.

johnnys "best" groups bested in less than a decade. LMAO
smilepi 29th-Jun-2012 11:12 pm (UTC)
I thought they debuted in 2006? (First single was released Feb. 2006 under an indie label. It's been less than seven years then! :D)

"ONLY" 22 million is a little too much. SMAP and Arashi are household names (esp SMAP).

I'm looking forward to seeing AKB break even more records. :DD
wasabisushi404 29th-Jun-2012 11:45 pm (UTC)
Just look at the sempai Johnnys!

I'm proud of V6. Made it into the top ten :3
eishastan 30th-Jun-2012 12:18 am (UTC)
Damn AKB48 is high and they are the youngest artist in the top 5! i see them taking over in the next couple of years if they don't lose popularity with Maeda's graduation! go girls!!
scubajr 30th-Jun-2012 12:19 am (UTC)
I'm surprised how high up some groups are on the Heisei list. And every active Johnny's group is on there.
But DBSK next week? WOOT.
kyun_spark 30th-Jun-2012 01:31 am (UTC)
Ow yeaaa TOKIO is still on the list... :DDD
r1k1t0 30th-Jun-2012 02:24 am (UTC)
kisumai surprised me! top 30 in the first year!! xD
megamisama_ann 30th-Jun-2012 02:34 am (UTC)
Though Kara purchasing is freaking far away from the number one, but it's surely an honor to see my baby girls are there. Japan is half of heaven for them.
sonia_san 30th-Jun-2012 02:55 am (UTC)
Way to go, Eito!! They've progressed greatly nowadays, hope in 2-4 years they can reach the top ten place or even the top five!!

sonia_san 30th-Jun-2012 03:01 am (UTC)
Oh and btw can someone explain to me the difference between IDOLS and ARTIST? And are there other genre? Thank you sooo much~
ryusa5 w-inds.30th-Jun-2012 03:37 am (UTC)
yey w-inds. made the list at nr 17
I'm really proud of them
& they're probably the only ones from that list that haven't performed on Music Station damn you JE

tsukino_aki Re: w-inds.30th-Jun-2012 03:14 pm (UTC)
And doesn't that even make them more awesome.
By the way I feel kinda confused; not really want to see them in another idol list lmao.
emiichan 30th-Jun-2012 03:45 am (UTC)
Glad HSJ made to the ranking ♥
And congrats others!
blahblah 30th-Jun-2012 04:08 am (UTC)
xanithofdragons 30th-Jun-2012 04:20 am (UTC)
So impressed with Kisumai making it to #30 of Heisei with only 3 singles.
niini_21 30th-Jun-2012 12:05 pm (UTC)
