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.)

Can B1A4 get no.1 album? I think UNICORN has a better chance at it, but their album will only drop one day later than others. And I also think that Ieiri Leo will surprise a lot of people especially these Oricon members surveyed. I won't be surprised if she gets no.1 instead.

Looks like no release, single or album, will make more than 100k next week. And Kuu looks good for 3rd, with Kiryuin Sho and SUPER GiRLS battling it out for no.1 single.

praying B1A4 and kuu do well. I didn't expect to see Brandy there tbh, but Two Eleven is a great album. :')

What a slow week. I desperately want either SUPER☆GiRLS or Kuu to score #1 on the singles chart tho.

lol i think B14 will do a T-ara XD

anywayz.. wondering why YUI covers isn't there o.O
or am i confusing her release date...

also hope Ieiri can surprise us, i think she can. it'll be awesome if she gets #1 or at least passes the 100k overall mark..or am i expecting too much :/

they probably didn't know that She Loves You is the title for YUI's tribute album, especially since it doesn't have YUI's name in the title...

and I think 100k is a bit too much for Leo...miwa is damn popular but even her last album only managed 50k...I think maybe 50k for Leo, if she's lucky...

and hope for that 50k
