In the albums chart, popular rock band, GLAY have achieved the top 2 spots with 2 original studio albums, "JUSTICE" and "GUILTY" respectively. It has been 13 years and a half since this was accomplished, and it's the first time in this century. Previously, TUBE have achieved the top 2 spots with studio albums in 1994 with "Owaranai Natsu ni (3200 yen)" and "Owaranai Natsu ni," as well as L'Arc~en~Ciel in 1999 with "ark" and "ray." For GLAY, the last time they reached no.1 in either singles or albums chart was with "GLAY" (October 2010), 2 years and 3 months ago. This is their 13th no.1 album. The album "JUSTICE" includes their first self-produced songs "JUSTICE [FROM] GUILTY" and "Unmeiron" for a total of 10 songs, while "GUILTY" includes "Bible", the theme song to last summer's "GLAY STADIUM LIVE 2012 THE SUITE ROOM in OSAKA NAGAI STADIUM," also for a total of 10 songs.

Posting the top 30 albums/singles and the top 10 music-DVDs. The no.1 music-BD rarely surpasses the no.1 music-DVD so posting the top 10 music-BDs as well. The second column in the top 10 refers to sales in 2013. New release in bold.

Glad to see that GLAY still manage to get decent Oricon sales despite most of their die-hard fans bought the albums from G-DIRECT and sales from that store aren't counted in Oricon.

Also, to Kanjani8 fans who are wondering how the Eight Ranger movie DVD/Blu-Ray is doing, it tops the overall DVD and Blu-Ray charts this week: http://www.oricon.co.jp/news/ranking/2021120/full . Maybe it'll get translated later.
