Jin Akanishi gets first No.1 since going solo

Jin Akanishi’s (26) movie “BANDAGE” has made its DVD sales debut at number one, figures released from Oricon today have revealed.

Released on July 23, the DVD has already sold more than 37,000 copies in Japan, making it top the DVD sales chart and has given Akanishi his first number one since becoming a solo artist.

The movie is set in the rock band boom of the 1990s, where LANDS (Akanishi’s band) have to overcome a number of challenges in order to make their professional debut. When the movie was released in Japan on November 21 2009, more than 70,000 pre-sold tickets had been bought by fans. This was the largest number of pre-sold tickets Toho cinemas had sold for a live-action film.

The number one record also beats Akanishi’s previous record for solo work, when the DVD box set for his drama “有閑倶楽部 (Yukan Club)” peaked at number nine in April 2008, with 20,000 copies sold.

wow that's pretty good right? i wonder if the movie is actually good still haven't seen it

I liked both the movie and his acting. It seemed.. how to say it.. natural? As in, very realistic character.. I think he did good.

Am I really the only person who didn't like BANDAGE? Love the songs and the cast, but...

the movie has some critical directing problems because it's Kobayashi-san's first movie.

It's a little hard to understand because something is missing in the middle part, such as why everyone's blaming on Asako...what's the exact relation between Natsu and Asako, such and such.

If you get over these problems, it'll probably look better, since this movie deals with the music world and the musicians who have been kicked out and who are going to be kicked out and who are just starting their journeys

I have it downloaded but not watched. I would watch but I have finals this week so I'm waiting til the weekend. (break time for me right now 8D)

also in other news, I've decided that Jason Derulo's Ridin Solo is Jin's new theme song

I watched this today.
The movie is good, the cast is good, the music is good.
But Jin is basically playing himself.

Anyway, I haven't cried over a movie in a fucklong time. It feels good.

Actually the news didn't include the RE sale

Totally the sales number was over 44,000 up till July 26 (only four days but still counted as the weekly sale), not including Blue-ray sale.

Normally for a movie/drama DVD, 10,000 for the first week is already a very good sale.

I wasn't expecting much, but I actually loved the movie :)

If only Jin went solo singing this kind of music, it'd be awesome~ *sighs*
