Just look at that. Hikki slaying your favorites for more than a decade now! ^^ UHSCV2 still on the Top 100 but seriously, it's her lowest-selling Japanese album to date. And her WILD LIFE DVD/BD is her lowest too. What's wrong with the UHSCV2 era?
Super Junior gets their first proper ranking. Hope for them to keep it up and for them to be given proper promotions too.
Namie's latest single is also great, Love Story is flawless.
Perfume FTW. Laser Beam/Kasuka na Kaori is their second-best-selling single ever next to love the world.
Singles in Hikki's Distance is still my jam, the sales in it are great, I don't care with AKB. Her first three albums are still great (and will always be) and I still play them on my CD player. She's the reason why I got into J-pop for real.

But wait, RIAJ had recorded First Love to sell 8,850,000 copies, instead of Oricon's 7,650,000. I'm still puzzled what's behind this.

Anyway, this list is comprehensive. Hope to tag this with "epic win". :)

RIAJ had recorded First Love to sell 8,850,000 copies

RIAJ recorded shipment, never sales...and after all these years, I'm sure First Love has sold close to that amount worldwide...

I still remember that particularly amazing week in 2001, when all we can see are the ranking and no daily sales yet, and by end of the week the weekly came out and boom (everybody must've fainted at this point when they saw the numbers)! Hikki-Ayu made a 1-2 with 3 million each! then Ayu took the weekly back after that, then Hikki the week after...good times!

OP you are amazing! Putting all the numbers together must have taken you so much time. Thank you for your hard work and commitment :)

Yay for TVXQ! They have the highest selling single from all foreign acts ^^ And all the singles and albums made it into top 100. And Tone is no 20 XD So proud of the boys!

Also yay for Laruku, Bump of Chicken and SJ.

I'm not really surprised that much that sales took a nosedive compared to the 90s or early 2000s. The era of CDs is slowly ending and digital music is taking its place. Sad but unavoidable.

34 out of the top 50 are JE and 48s? Man, that's...pretty bad.

I SEE TOUR 47!!! My fav. concert opening till now!
And recall the bitter memory of Hina and Ryo accepting a yearly No.1 trophy in unceremonious setting, and all those neglects despite their self-made / unaided success since way back. (Sorry, Moody-Mondays!)</p>

Regardless, thank you very much for this informative post (with no underlying tone) ;)
