Johnny's 4-member group, NEWS have achieved their 15th consecutive no.1 single since debut with "WORLD QUEST/Pokopon Pekorya." Including albums, this is also their 20th consecutive no.1 release. They are only the 3rd group to have achieved this after KinKi Kids last did it with "Kanashimi Blue" (May 2002) and KAT-TUN with "WHITE" (May 2011). "WORLD QUEST" is the official song for FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2012 in which member, Tegoshi Yuya also served as the main MC. "Pokopon Pekorya" is the theme song to the TBS midnight drama, "Hana no Zubora Meshi" in which member, Kato Shigeaki is also starring in.

In the albums chart, popular group, EXILE's double best album, "EXILE BEST HITS -LOVE SIDE/SOUL SIDE-" has topped the chart for 2 weeks in a row. This is their 3rd consecutive album to have achieved 2 straight weeks at the top after "Negai no Tou" (March 2011) and "EXILE JAPAN/Solo" (January this year). As this is also the first week of Oricon chart 2013, EXILE now have extended their record for both male artists and groups to have a yearly no.1 consecutive album to 11 years. This best album comes with 2 discs; “LOVE SIDE” with love ballads and “SOUL SIDE” with uptempo numbers, including 29 of their hit songs from their debut in 2001 until 2011.

Meanwhile, popular Johnny's talent, Yamashita Tomohisa has reached the top spot in both music-DVD and overall DVD charts simultaneously with his live DVD, "TOMOHISA YAMASHITA LIVE TOUR 2012 ~Ero P~." This is the first for Yamashita to rank first in the overall DVD chart since turning solo. It also exceeded his previous highest placing at 3rd with "TOMOHISA YAMASHITA ASIA TOUR 2011 SUPER GOOD SUPER BAD" (December 2011). The Blu-Ray version of the live DVD has also reached no.1 in the music-BD chart with 5,014 copies sold, for a DVD+BD total of 38,870 copies. This is also the first time for Yamashita to top the music-BD chart.

Congrats to both NEWS and Yamapi ^o^

I think Shibasaki Kou s number is slightly better than My Perfect Blue?

Congrats to Flumpool too ^^

And Who Oo with that number, did Orange Caramel actually did any promo ? That's a pity, I really liked their song

I think LEAD is doing really great now! Omedeto!
urubaby21 20th-Dec-2012 12:49 am (UTC)
Ok, not bad at all. Totally excited that news got number one and that lead is at number four with their amazingness. I really really need to get out of my lazy hole and check out a bunch of the songs on these lists.
Also, another of my never-ending questions, but what does two stars mean in front of a bold song opposed to one star?? for instance this,
**2,757 moumoon – DREAMER DREAMER / Doko e mo Ikanai yo (it should be in bold text but I don't want to figure out how to do that).

Again, a million thank yous to whited_79 for posting this.

whited_79 20th-Dec-2012 06:16 am (UTC)
**2,757 The stars just to make a list looks neater. You can either do that or replace it with '0' like 002,757. This is because the no.1 spot has 6 figures in it while moumoon only has 4.
urubaby21 20th-Dec-2012 09:26 pm (UTC)
oh, duh. Thanks :)
