Music-BD chart usually has low numbers, most of the times under 1000 copies even the top 10. But this week is a good week IMO, so whether or not the chart is posted here in the future will depend on the numbers.

Even though I don't like this release by Iki, still congrats to them. Especially congrats to Mr.Children for being consistent with their DVD and Blu-Ray sales. :)

Is CNBLUE any good? I dont know much abt Korean acts but have seen quite a few people praise them. And they dont seem to be part of the Hallyu wave yet managed to get pretty decent sales.
And congrats to Misuchiru, as always :)
shunluv 26th-Dec-2012 03:35 pm (UTC)
they are great.

they start as street band in Japan before they debut in Korea..you should try listening to their song especially the one the member write themselves.
im glad they not trying to be part of Hallyu wave and start from bottom there and steadily gaining their own followers in Japan
sakana93 26th-Dec-2012 03:48 pm (UTC)
thanks, I will try listening to them :)
itskimbitches 26th-Dec-2012 04:33 pm (UTC)
they're consistent in the idol band genre. it's easy to get into them but some ppl like authenticity; they were formed by a company not guys getting together hoping to get recognized. if you're cool with that def check them out.
sakana93 26th-Dec-2012 04:45 pm (UTC)
thanks for your advice, I just wanna know a bit abt their music, not become a fan xD so I will check them out *I have too many bands to fangirl already*
urubaby21 27th-Dec-2012 07:19 am (UTC)
I think the lead singer is annoying, aside from that the music is not bad. Pretty catchy stuff, but pretty forgettable in my opinion. You should try out their japanese song called eclipse (I think). Anyways, just youtube them and I'm sure you'll get plenty of videos to keep you busy.
sakana93 27th-Dec-2012 07:49 am (UTC)
Thanks for your opinion :)

I really love GReeeeN and Gackt's new single.
The most astonishing about this chart is NMB48's sudden rise, even in today's daily chart they're selling 28756 copies. This is also not their newest single, the single that has a sudden surge is 2months old.

You really care that much about sales??
ohprecioustime 27th-Dec-2012 04:07 pm (UTC)
yes, it makes me sad one of my faves went from hero to zero over the course of two years
urubaby21 30th-Dec-2012 04:09 am (UTC)
Yea, that is pretty sad.
yukkiz 26th-Dec-2012 05:14 pm (UTC)
Congrats to everyone esp .Misuchiru XD ..really like their other performance from other Dome
Glad to see Yuming is consistent ,legend ! but poor Kaela = =

Some of these titles are way tooooooo loooong.

I'm so happy for ikimono gakari. They were the first japanese band I ever got into..kinda introduced me to jpop and other japanese music, so I want to see as much as possible from them.
jewelry_flower 8th-Jan-2013 08:01 am (UTC)
