For singles article, go HERE.

In the albums chart, singer Hamasaki Ayumi has reached the no.1 spot with her classical album in 7 years and 9 months, "A Classical." It has been 12 years and 4 months for a classical album, "image" (August 2009) to top the chart. The last time Hamasaki has topped Oricon for single or album was with the mini-album, "FIVE" (August 2011), a year and 4 months ago. Her previous classical album, "MY STORY Classical" (March 2005) peaked at no.4. This is her 19th no.1 album, surpassing Matsuda Seiko (who she previously tied with 18) at 2nd place, behind Matsutoya Yumi with 22 no.1 albums.

Meanwhile, popular group, Arashi have achieved their 3rd consecutive week at the top of both music-DVD and overall DVD charts simultaneously with their live DVD, "ARASHI ARAFES." This is the first time for an artist to reach no.1 in the DVD chart for 3 weeks in a row since Oricon started including DVDs in 1999. As for music-DVD, the last time an artist topped the chart for 3 consecutive weeks was 2 years and 8 months ago with Mr.Children's "Mr.Children DOME TOUR 2009 ~SUPERMARKET FANTASY~ IN TOKYO" (May 2010). It surpassed Arashi's achievement at that time with "ARASHI AROUND ASIA 2008 in TOKYO" (March 2009).

Posting the top 30 albums/singles and the top 10 music-DVDs. The second column in the top 10 refers to sales in 2013. New release in bold.

Oh, and wow, Yamada's sales are very good! (not as high as Jin's and Pi's first single, but still, these are great numbers! I bet he'll get a new single soon)

Arashi and Smap still ranking :D


By the way, is there a chance to listen to some of Plan-B's music? I haven't heard anything from them yet and am kinda curious <3

why so many for a dude who cannot sing? XD
kobachan 17th-Jan-2013 06:03 am (UTC)
Did you actually listen to the PV? Not saying he did it excellently the way divas do but surely, he can sing. Of course he still has a lot to learn.
j_o_n_n_o 16th-Jan-2013 06:53 pm (UTC)
ayumi struggling to break 25k tho...........
umbrellaphone 16th-Jan-2013 11:44 pm (UTC)
Rehashing/remixing/releasing old songs as 5 consecutive albums at such close timeframe was a terrible idea tbh.
kerplunk 17th-Jan-2013 11:14 pm (UTC)
lets talk about how ak69 is struggling to break 18k tho
kerplunk 17th-Jan-2013 11:18 pm (UTC)
happy that ayu got #1 for with A classical even tho the numbers were abismal, i enjoyed this release. I just wish she added more songs.
urubaby21 19th-Jan-2013 05:35 am (UTC)
Wow, the album sales are pretty sad but if you ignore the sales number, it's still a number one for ayu, so congrats??
Congrats to One Ok Rock, haven't heard the song yet, but I'll get around to it.
Also, damn those fan girls and their heavy pockets, considering yamada's sales. Honestly like the song, though.
And lol at girls generation and their sales. I like that song because I think it's genuinely hilarious.

AND OMG, THE GAZETTE GOT NUMBER THREE. I CRY TEARS OF PURE JOY.
