Singer-songwriter/actor, Fukuyama Masaharu's 27th single, "Kazoku ni Narou yo / fighting pose" has topped the singles chart this week, becoming his 13th no.1 single, and his 25th to chart on Oricon since his 4th single, "WOH WOW" (released in October 1991) charted with the highest peak at 89th. His total singles and albums sales now has reached 21.271 million (13.167 million singles and 8.103 million albums), making him (with 22 years of career) the best-selling male artist in Oricon history.

Oo, I kept checking the daily charts and I'm pretty sure TheGazette is above AAA for most of the days.
Oh well, I love both of the singles so happy either way :D
Yay for Ayumi, SMAP, AKB, AAA, TheGazette, Kisumai, B'z~~
whited_79 7th-Sep-2011 12:25 pm (UTC)
AAA's early sales are probably higher...
thewarpedmelody 7th-Sep-2011 12:34 pm (UTC)
Yea guess so, I hope both of their sales can be higher though
anduril_narsil 7th-Sep-2011 12:24 pm (UTC)
ましゃ〜 おめでとう!

You've came a long way since you first sold 2800 copies of your first single, which unsurprisingly, did not chart at all. >.< Good job Masha. Good job.
whited_79 7th-Sep-2011 12:28 pm (UTC)
XD

and to think that his first 3 singles didn't chart at all! :)
supermusicmaker 7th-Sep-2011 12:49 pm (UTC)
Congrats, Ayu! I didn't really care for FIVE except for 2 songs though. :x
kawaii_honey 7th-Sep-2011 12:57 pm (UTC)
Yay for Ayu! I was hoping FIVE would sell more because it's a great mini album. Also sad to see AAA's new single sold less than their previous one, considering both CALL and I4U were really good songs. fripSide also got #42 this week. Kind of upset that their new single is doing almost half as well as future gazer =(

DVD sales are so low this week
cnidaria_jin 7th-Sep-2011 12:57 pm (UTC)
