Congrats, Iki! It's probably going to sell as much as Hajimari no Uta in the end (500k+), and it's fine by me! XD

I LOL at the albums chart, seeing how much Iki outsold the others. Anyway, pretty close race between Yamapi and Mayuyu in the singles chart and it has been entertaining. I just wish that TOKIO and FLOWER would do better though. :( However, glad to see GReeeeN selling more this time around compared to their other singles post-hiatus. And the song is doing very well digitally too. :)

kame_94 7th-Mar-2012 05:16 am (UTC)
Yamapi's single is "Ai, Texas" not "I, Texas", right??
Sad at the drop in Kat-tun sales, but Chain is still an epic album. ^_^
Congratz, Ikimonogakari!!
rorychan 7th-Mar-2012 05:21 am (UTC)

But congrats to everyone who made it in the chart. Was surprised Tokio didnt chart higher.
meiachii 7th-Mar-2012 06:46 am (UTC)
Sheer win by Yamapi (yay) but I wish Bonnie Pink and Hirahara Ayaka could have charted higher.
Anyway OP,
Yanagi Nagi - Bedoro Moyou , the right translation is Vidro Moyou iirc
whited_79 7th-Mar-2012 08:52 am (UTC)
Yanagi Nagi - Bedoro Moyou

yeah I went by CDJapan's translation since I had no idea what Vidro is lol...but it's in katakana so the pronounciation is still there...:)
