Weekly Oricon Chart: Albums/Singles/Music-DVDs



Newest Johnny's group, Sexy Zone have achieved their 2nd consecutive no.1 single with "Lady Diamond." It has been 4 months since the last time a debuting group achieved 2 consecutive no.1 singles with Kis-My-Ft2 in December last year ("We never give up!"). For a group in their teens, the last time this was achieved was in June 2008 with Hey!Say!JUMP ("Dreams come true"), 3 years and 11 months ago. The title track is currently being used as the theme song for FujiTV's "Real Scope Z", while the coupling song, "Kaze wo Kitte" is the ending theme for the NHK anime, "Nintama Rantaro."

Meanwhile, Domoto Tsuyoshi, one-half from Johnny's popular duo KinKi Kids, has grabbed the no.1 album spot with "shamanippon -Rakachinotohi-". The last time his solo album acquired the top spot was 6 years and 1 month ago with "Coward" under the name ENDLICHERI☆ENDLICHERI (released in March 2006). This is his 4th no.1 solo album.

In the music-DVD and overall DVD chart, Korean group Choshinsei have achieved their very first no.1 Oricon ranking with "Fan Meeting 2011 "For You" Concert DVD". They are only the 3rd Asian (non-Japanese) male group to have reached the top spot in this ranking after Tohoshinki and JUNSU/JEJUNG/YUCHUN. The fan meeting and concert was recorded in October last year at Saitama Super Arena before their leader, Yoonhak's enlistment into the military.

And in the Blu-Ray chart, 5-girls idol unit Momoiro Clover Z have also finally reached the top spot (either single, album or DVD) for the first time with "「Momoiro Christmas 2011 Saitama Super Arena Taikai」 LIVE BD", selling 14k in the first week. The combined sales of both DVD and BD version is 22k. The video was recorded from their Christmas live at Saitama Super Arena last year with a total of 27 tracks. Additionally they also performed their latest single, "Mouretsu Uchuu Koukyoukyoku Dai 7 Gakushou 「Mugen no Ai」" as one of the concert's highlights.

Posting the top 30 albums/singles and the top 10 music-DVDs. The second column in the top 10 refers to sales in 2012. New release in bold.

Aww...Choshinsei got number 1 for DVD. That makes me happy since that poor group never get any love from the motherland and they're pretty decent too.
poleenc 18th-Apr-2012 09:34 pm (UTC)
lol, I wanted to come in here and cheer for Choshinsei too ;3

Congrats, Hoshi-san! I'm hoping for ONE SONGS in TOP 20, but... oh well! He sells pretty well for a seiyuu. And it's his 1st album (for SEGA's SHINING BLADE) and no promotions too. Pappi~~~~~~~~~~ おめでとう!!
whited_79 18th-Apr-2012 04:42 pm (UTC)
he did get into the top 10 for a day...

Congrats Tsuyo! ♥♥
chrismellody 18th-Apr-2012 07:26 am (UTC)
I'm just curious, what makes ClariS popular?
chokingday 18th-Apr-2012 12:42 pm (UTC)
The story behind them and the ~mystery~ help, but the super catchy songs are also pretty important. I think all of their singles have been tie-ins too.
askbask 18th-Apr-2012 10:02 am (UTC)
Perfume best week ever, Momoiro number one, woo. But if blu-ray sales are higher than dvd sales, why is it the dvd chart is the one posted every week? Or maybe it's just MomoClo.

whited_79 18th-Apr-2012 04:52 pm (UTC)
because Blu-Ray charts aren't easily available...besides, music-DVD sales are generally higher and Oricon only reported those, with the exception of cases like this where they reported a Blu-Ray achievement...they don't normally do that...

DoTs ♥

Lady Diamond was a surprisingly good single, so I'm happy for SZ.
binguroo 18th-Apr-2012 10:25 am (UTC)
