Weekly Oricon Chart: Albums/Singles/Music-DVDs

akb48-1830m nogizaka46-hashire!_bicycle bigbang_alive_2012_making_collection

Popular idol group, AKB48, have achieved their 2nd consecutive week at the top of the albums chart with "1830m." This is the first time for the group to achieve 2 consecutive weeks either with a single or album since their debut 7 years ago. This is also Maeda Atsuko's last album as an AKB48 member before her graduation. The last time a female group achieved 2 weeks in a row at the top was Twelve Girls Band with "Twelve Girls Band ~Beautiful Energy~" (July 2003), 9 years ago. As for the first time it happened, it was SPEED with "RISE" (April 1998), 14 years and 4 months ago. The album's total for 2 weeks now is 935k. The last time a female act achieved the 900k mark in 2 weeks with an original studio album was Hamasaki Ayumi with "RAINBOW" (December 2002), 9 years and 8 months ago.

In the singles chart, idol group Nogizaka46, have reached the no.1 spot for the 2nd time in a row with their 3rd single, "Hashire! Bicycle." This follows their 2nd single released in May, "Oide Shampoo." Although they're considered AKB48's 'official rival', since they are also 48-related, this means this is the first time for 48-family to achieve simultaneous domination in both singles and albums chart, with AKB48 achieving their 2nd week in a row at the top of the albums chart.

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.

At this rate, AKB will only hit 1 million in another 2 weeks at least, and won't be enough to surpass Mr.Children's "macro" this year. Still, we're getting 3 million-selling albums compared to none last year, and it'd be lovely to have a 4th one if we can! :)

This is AAA's best-selling first week for albums, right? I would have loved for TOKIO to sell more but still, congrats for their top 5 position. Also congrats to ACE OF SPADES, and OOR got their best-selling single so far! XD
