I'm surprised that ONE OK ROCK's Deeper Deeper is not in the list, but that could be due to the single being announced after the survey was sent out. It's not by any chance postponed, right?

Albums chart certainly looks interesting, though I have doubts if Ayu can top it with a classical album, but we'll see. She will have an extra day advantage though since it's released on Jan 8th while others are released on Jan 9th.
