Note 1:

The NINKI ratings are the results of a POLL conducted by Oricon indicating degree of interest/degree of purchase intention in an upcoming release. Although the ratings are never a true reflection of sales, it does give a strong prediction about where the single/album will place in terms of popularity amongst the Japanese public. However, they are NOT an indication of how it will perform in terms of chart positioning and total sales for the week.

Note 2:

According to Oricon's note under the NINKI page, Oricon researches about 870,000 of its members by random sampling of 400 members in their 10s until 40s. 50 men and 50 women are chosen randomly to participate in each age group. (However, some popular artists have had NINKI exceeding 500, so we can only assume that Oricon has extended the polling to around 600/700 people now.)

Yeah Yuzu's best album! And SMAP's new single! XD

And good luck to JUN SKY WALKER(S) and Hilcrhyme, and also rooting for Iki, GReeeeN and Sonar Pocket!

Tomochin's first single lost to Tohoshinki! Don't tell me her third single continue lose to SMAP?! I luv Smap too, but i hope Tomochin herself can fighting to get the win in the end (≧ ∀ ≦)
thewarpedmelody 20th-Apr-2012 03:58 pm (UTC)
She'll most likely lose to SMAP, don't think she can win SMAP
hina 20th-Apr-2012 04:41 pm (UTC)
There's no way she'll beat SMAP.

It's weird, her sales are the best out of any AKB soloist so you'd think management would arrange for her single to come out on a better week for her.
bunny1607 20th-Apr-2012 04:59 pm (UTC)
She did beat GACKT with her second single. There's still room for the hope, right!?
hina 20th-Apr-2012 05:54 pm (UTC)
Gackt's sales aren't good at all though, I'd have been very very disappointed if she hadn't beat Gackt.

Tomo's first week sales:

*1 231,498 231,498 Tohoshinki – Why? (Keep Your Head Down)
*2 162,871 162,871 Itano Tomomi – Dear J

*1 90,103 *90,103 Itano Tomomi - Fuini
*3 28,643 *28,643 GACKT - Episode.0

SMAP's recent first week sales:

*1 130,190 130,190 SMAP - Boku no Hanbun (2011)
*1 275,837 275,837 SMAP - This is love (2010)
*1 104,723 104,723 SMAP – Sotto Kyutto / Super Star (2009)

Tomo's single is a ballad, which are usually slower sellers overall, so she's got that against her. And SMAP's fans won't want her to break their #1 running streak. I mean it's not impossible, and I obviously I want her to get number 1, but I think it's unlikely.

not expecting dear tomo to beat SMAP at all but really looking forward to good sales figures though.
tv_dramas 20th-Apr-2012 06:05 pm (UTC)
I don't know about sales number and such, but like to add, SMAP single has a PV + making, normal PV wasn't included for a while to CD and I can't even remember about making
noonew 20th-Apr-2012 07:08 pm (UTC)
I'm pretty sure this is the very first SMAP single to ever include a PV making.
whited_79 21st-Apr-2012 06:22 am (UTC)
and when SMAP got that 105k for Sotto Kyutto they only released one version...This is love had 3 versions, Boku no Hanbun had 2...
whited_79 21st-Apr-2012 06:20 am (UTC)
no way...she couldn't even get 90k first week for her previous fact, her single sales has been dropping...SMAP can easily do 150k, there's no way Itano can beat them...
echowillow 20th-Apr-2012 05:00 pm (UTC)
Yay yuzu's best album. Go go go!
blackdevil2722 20th-Apr-2012 06:33 pm (UTC)
CHI-CHI? Like seriously?

I find it so damn hard to believe that they actually have a higher Ninki than Kana Hanazawa or the fact they're even ranked to begin in the first place.

"Marilyn Manson - Born Villian" O_________O'
taylorniw 21st-Apr-2012 12:19 am (UTC)
lol right? ngl though his last two albums last two albums were jams even though I think his early stuff is crap
harunomasu 21st-Apr-2012 02:35 am (UTC)
I see Yuzu, Hilchryme and Sonar Pocket's name up there. They deserve to be there.
yuuri_funkasy 26th-Apr-2012 04:52 pm (UTC)
SMAP ftw ♥

I hope i can get my copy soon, i'm tired of avoiding every live and extract not to be spoiled. x)
