Weekly Oricon Chart: Albums/Singles/Music-DVDs


Popular idol group, AKB48's election single this year, also their 27th single, "Gingham Check," has topped the singles chart. This is their 8th consecutive million-selling single (9th overall) since "Sakura no Ki ni Narou" (February last year). For an Oshima Yuko-centered song, this is the first time. The A-side is their first single without Maeda Atsuko who recently graduated from the group. They are off to a good start with a single breaking the 1 million mark, with Oshima taking over as center for only the 2nd time. Since "Everyday, Kachuusha" (May last year), this is the group's 7th consecutive single to break 1 million mark in the first week. This year, this single follows "GIVE ME FIVE" (February) and "Manatsu no Sounds good!" (May) to achieve 1 million. This is the first time in history for an act to achieve at least 3 million-selling singles in 2 consecutive years. "Gingham Check" is their 14th consecutive no.1 single since "RIVER" (October 2009), updating the record set for female groups in 1st place. It has been 16 years and 3 months for an act to achieve 8 consecutive million-selling singles since B'z (with 13), and tied at 2nd place with Mr.Children.

In the albums chart, South Korea's 4-piece band, CNBLUE released their 1st major Japanese album last week, "CODE NAME BLUE" and it has reached no.1. This is the band's first time on top of the albums chart. This is also the 2nd time for them to reach no.1 in either singles or albums chart, with the first one being their single released in February this year, "Where you are," which was also the first time in 41 years for a foreign band to top the singles chart. The band's previous album released in their indie days, "392" (September last year) peaked at 6th. With the exception of sub-units, this is the 3rd time for foreign male artists to reach no.1 with their 1st major album since FTISLAND's "FIVE TREASURE ISLAND" (May last year), and Jang Geun Suk's "JUST CRAZY" (June this year).

Meanwhile, 5-member band, Tokyo Jihen, who ended their 7 and a half years career at Nihon Budoukan on February 29th this year, have topped the music-DVD chart with their 2nd disbandment video, "Chin Play Kou Play." Their 1st disbandment video, "Bon Voyage" also entered the weekly chart at 3rd place, making it their 2nd consecutive times in the top 3 for both videos. This work includes their history from formation to disbandment, demonstrating Tokyo Jihen. Packed with footage of their tour in digest format, as well as festivals and events, this is not to be missed by fans. The Blu-Ray version of this video also reached no.2 in the music-BD chart, selling 12,818 copies, for a total DVD+BD of 31,162 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.

Congrats especially to UVERworld's good performance and Sakanaction's best first week single sales so far! XD

Also, pretty slow album week, but pleased to see that although Tokyo Jihen missed out the no.1 album, they managed to top the DVD chart. :)
