I thought AKB48 would take it this year and the usual snub for Arashi like they did last year..... Edit: Just to make it clear, I was surprised AKB48 didn't win the single sales category and wasn't expecting Arashi as a winner considering Johnny's were snubbed by Billboard and MTV before. I hope Arashi will accept the award since its a sales award and not the kind of subjective voting recognition thingy.

Additional information
Details about the award
. Most of the charts winners above  were based on Billboard Japan Hot 100 chart, which ranks songs based on retail and airplay data. [ Wikipedia | BBbiz ]. Those were not voted by fans. In other words, it was based on hard numbers and professionally audited data. So there's no need to butthurt on behalf of other artist that didn't get recognized because they simply didn't give Japan the money and the glitz.

Fan voted categories are 1) Japan Top POP artist; 2) Japan Classic Artist of the year; 3) Japan Jazz Artist of the year & 4) Independent Artist of the year as shown at the voting page here. There were other categories last year like K-pop New artist and Rising International Artist.

This is not an award like the Grammys.

3/5 of the poll...Arashi you are crazy. Good job to KT and SMAP for making the lists too 8D

Congrats Arashi, again. I AM SORRY FOR BEING SOME HORRIBLE FAN OR WHATEVER YOU MAY CALL ME but I wish they'd stop winning or accomplishing so much shit. Yeah, they've worked hard, and I'm happy for them.

But, it just feels like they're all these musicians that truly deserve to be recognized, and the media is just all ARASHI ARASHI ARASHI. I remember watching the episode of Music Station where they performed whatever song it was, but before them, Hirai Ken performed his new song Aishiteru & Takahashi Yuu performed Honto no Kimochi.

Those men, are real musicians. And did an amazing job. And deserve recognition.

I don't know, it's like hearing both performances in the same time span kinda takes away from the real artists'.

And before you say it, I KNOW HOW IDOLS DOMINATE JAPAN. THANK YOU. NO NEED TO MENTION THAT. It bothers me about all idol groups, not just Arashi.

Stans, please don't kick me. I'm just saying.

The top 10 Oricon singles chart is all Arashi and AKB48 as well. Very disappointing and uninteresting. At least there will be more diversity on the albums chart because can't release 5-6 albums a year without looking absolutely ridiculous.

I thought AKB48 would dominate the charts as well. I love Arashi like any other rabid fan, but wow.
