Weekly Oricon Chart: Albums/Singles/Music-DVDs

jang_geun_suk-just_crazy not_yet-suika_baby bz-bz_live_gym_2011_cmon

Popular idol group, AKB48 and its sub-units have dominated the top 3 spots in the singles chart this week. The last time the same artist grabbed the top 3 single spots was in January 2010 with Kanjani8. The no.1 spot went to Not yet (consisting of Oshima Yuko, Sashihara Rino, Kitahara Rie and Yokoyama Yui) with "Suika BABY." AKB48 came in second with "Manatsu no Sounds good!" in its 2nd week, pushing the sales to 1.745 million total so far, ahead of Morning Musume's "LOVE Machine" (total 1.647 million copies sold), making it the 2nd best-selling single by a female group after SPEED's "WHITE LOVE" (total 1.845 copies sold). In the 3rd place is Watanabe Mayu-led sub-unit, Watarirouka Hashiritai 7 with "Shounen yo Uso wo Tsuke!", making it their 10th consecutive single in the top 10.

In the albums chart, Korean actor/singer, Jang Geun Suk has topped the chart with his 1st Japanese album, "Just Crazy." The last time a male soloist (excluding those from a group) has topped the album ranking with the 1st album was 8 years ago in May 2004 with Moriyama Naotaro's "Arata Naru Koushinryou wo Motomete" (he managed to top the chart for 3 consecutive weeks). However, this is the first time for a foreign male soloist. Including female soloist, with BoA topping the album chart with "LISTEN TO MY HEART" (released in March 2002), making Jang Geun Suk only the 2nd foreign soloist to do so. Previously, the highest-charting foreign male soloist was in 2nd place, achieved by Scatman John with "Scatman's World" (September 1995), and Jang's fellow Korean singer, K with "Beyond the Sea" (January 2006).

Meanwhile, popular rock band, B'z have achieved their 8th consecutive no.1 music-DVD with "B'z LIVE-GYM 2011-C'mon-", released for the first time since a year and 10 months ago. With this 8th consecutive no.1 DVD, they have surpassed Arashi's record of 7 consecutive no.1 DVD. This DVD is also no.1 in the overall DVD chart. Simultaneously, the Blu-Ray version of the DVD has achieved the top spot in the Blu-Ray chart with 55,681 copies sold. This surpasses the record made by Kanjani8 in March this year with "KANJANI∞ Go-dai Dome TOUR EIGHTxEIGHTER Omonnakattara Dome Suimasen" (which sold 44k in the first week) as the highest-selling Blu-Ray Disc in the first week so far for male artists. With this, this work has the DVD+BD total of 108,690 copies.

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.
