Popular idol group, SKE48 have reached the top spot in the singles chart with their 10th single, "Kiss Datte Hidarikiki", which is their first single to surpass 500k in the first week. Since 2007, the only 2 groups to have surpassed the 500k mark in the first week are Arashi and AKB48. Now SKE48 have joined the rank. This is the group's 6th consecutive no.1 single since their 5th single, "Banzai Venus" (March laat year). As for female groups, AKB48 stand in the first place for most consecutive no.1 singles with 14, Pink Lady at 2nd place with 9, and Onyanko Club at 3rd place with 6, which is now SKE48 tied with. This is a personal record for SKE48 since their 8th single, "Kataomoi Finally" (January this year). They are only the 4th female group to have surpassed 500k in the first week after SPEED, Morning Musume, and AKB48.

In the albums chart, popular vocalist, Superfly has topped the chart with her 4th original album, "Force." This is her 5th consecutive no.1 album including her cover album, "Wildflower & Cover Songs: Complete Best 'TRACK 3'" (September 2010). The only other female acts (solo or group) to have achieved this since their first albums are Amuro Namie, Kuraki Mai, and Utada Hikaru for the last time, 6 years and 3 months ago.

Meanwhile, singer-songwriter, Hamada Shogo has achieved the no.1 spot in the music-DVD and overall DVD charts simultaneously with his live DVD, "ON THE ROAD 2011 "The Last Weekend"". At 59 years and 9 months old, Hamada has updated the record as the oldest artist to have topped the DVD chart previously set by Nagabuchi Tsuyoshi with "30th Anniversary BOX from TSUYOSHI NAGABUCHI PREMIUM" (June 2010), at that time 53 years and 9 months old. This is the first time in 16 years and 7 months for Hamada to top the DVD chart since his video in March 1996, "ROAD OUT "MOVIE"". He has also topped the music-BD chart with 24,123 copies of the Blu-Ray version sold, for a DVD+BD total of 50,928 copies.

So glad that Superfly managed to grab that no.1 spot. Congrats! XD Good-looking albums chart overall too, even 20th place is 10k+. Any other week, SPYAIR would've been 10th.

SKE and Superfly have been neck and neck all week, it's been interesting to watch. At one point they were only a few hundred copies apart.
whited_79 26th-Sep-2012 03:54 pm (UTC)
yeah, Superfly just happens to be more consistent...
hina 26th-Sep-2012 06:04 pm (UTC)
Well, idk if it's just that, or SKE somewhat screwing themselves by releasing an album with only 5 original songs, on the same week as a single release, with no handshake event tickets etc included.
whited_79 27th-Sep-2012 07:28 am (UTC)
well SKE did sell more than Superfly on the first day, they just happened to have less consistency that allow Superfly to overtake them in the consecutive days...
love323able 26th-Sep-2012 03:05 pm (UTC)
really happy superfly managed to outsell ske for albums^^

also how much did SPYAIR sell compared to their first, i know probably less??
whited_79 26th-Sep-2012 03:59 pm (UTC)
I think around the same, also 10k+...
supermusicmaker 26th-Sep-2012 03:42 pm (UTC)
Congrats to Superfly! I became a fan recently (I heard Mind Travel first then Force though)
whited_79 26th-Sep-2012 04:21 pm (UTC)
Mind Travel is one of the best albums last year! :)
codon3 26th-Sep-2012 04:17 pm (UTC)
SPYAIR deserve a higher spot :|
rim1789 26th-Sep-2012 04:32 pm (UTC)

The fuck is YoungSaeng doing there :D Awesome.
Speaking of Hallyu, CSS sold pretty well. Also awesome :D;

I'm glad Superfly got her #1 and SKE got their #1 in the singles (not that there was ever much doubt about the latter happening, but still).
arara_chan 26th-Sep-2012 07:15 pm (UTC)
Arashi is back! xDD
Aww Spyair should be higher, they are awesome :)
