And since some people have been asking about this, here it is again:

Oricon-related info:

- Oricon counts ALL versions of each release.
- Oricon only releases the top 3 sales for the daily singles and albums charts.
- Oricon will release the full sales weekly, monthly and yearly.
- Oricon releases the number of copies sold to the buyers (fans) by the sellers (outlets/stores/shops, etc), NOT the number of copies shipped to the market (outlets/stores/shops) by the record labels. That is the role of RIAJ physical certification.

Source: http://www.oricon.co.jp/rank/index2.html

RIAJ physical = the number of copies shipped to the market (stores) by the labels.
RIAJ digital = the number of downloads a song got from the digital stores.

Courtesy to marchlavender

Billboard gets their physical CD numbers from RIAJ, not Oricon.


Poor chart performance as you can see. Top 2 singles did fine, but the albums chart looks averagely better than the singles chart this time.

And congrats L'Arc, Kaela, Superfly and FLOWER! XD
