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.)

Some other new releases next week (according to CDJapan listing):

Singles - Imai Eriko, Dochin Yoshikuni, D=OUT, Little Blue boX, DOES, Silent Siren, Blu-BiLLioN

Albums - Aoyama Thelma, PASSPO, MIYAVI, Shinsei Kamatte-chan, D, Watanabe Misato, Sugawara Sayuri, Angelo, JAM Project, GOING UNDER GROUND, Wonder Girls

I believe KARA will get no.1, though I'm not sure if they can even reach 200k this time. As for Sexy Zone, I don't think they will be much of a threat considering their singles sales, but the handshake events will probably help them get over 100k. I hope SPEED does decently, and I think Maaya will debut in the top 5, possibly above SPEED. And lol Wonder Girls' best album doesn't even rank in the NINKI.

As for singles chart, although 2PM has a higher NINKI, I hope that 3G-JSB will pull through and grab the no.2 spot instead. Also rooting for Ketsumeishi, Fairies and LOVE PSYCHEDELICO.

Sexy Love is pretty low...I hope they can surpass 50k. Excited to see KARA's numbers
whited_79 9th-Nov-2012 03:18 pm (UTC)
their previous single only reached 19k first week though...
goto 9th-Nov-2012 04:55 pm (UTC)
that single was really limited and included only one song, it was also only released two weeks before their album.

* oh i also meant 50k overall not first week!

Not a surprise here; I ordered for Sugawara Sayuri's new album (Open The Gate), something that is not expected to be on top but something that I hope does well. Now at first I thought Johnny's would sweep this week...but I'm kind of surprised that KARA (korean idol) is also actually running in the album competition against one Sexy Zone. Not surprised at singles however (Kis-My-Ft2). Let's see how things will go in the album race anyway, where how well will my beloved Sayu perform on the charts with her first album in nearly three years as well as how the KARA-Sexy Zone competition will come down...

I hope Sayuri's album can get into the top 20 at least. Open The Gate is good!
whited_79 9th-Nov-2012 03:24 pm (UTC)
well, I honestly don't think that SZ is any competition, maybe only on the 1st day, but who knows...

Super Girl (KARA's previous album) - 275k
Sexy Zone - first album, but singles 100k+

Rooting for Fairies!! <3

I also think Sexy Zone might sell a bit higher than 100k

Thanks so much for sharing!! ♥

let's go 2pm! :D
aya_sama3000 9th-Nov-2012 03:45 pm (UTC)
and even if they're not ranked on Ninki I hope Wonder Girls do well with Wonder Best as well :D
nozo_rin 9th-Nov-2012 10:34 am (UTC)
REALLY behind seeing i had no idea of sexy zones album release
pipisays 9th-Nov-2012 11:14 am (UTC)
Interested to see how Ai no Beat sells since it has no tie-ins.
supermusicmaker 9th-Nov-2012 02:01 pm (UTC)
Rooting for KARA to crush Sexy Zone tbh.
l_no_sekai 9th-Nov-2012 04:23 pm (UTC)
LOL, for now, there's no way SZ will surpass KARA anyway
l_no_sekai 9th-Nov-2012 04:28 pm (UTC)
I'm not expecting anything for sexy zone's album, at least they release an album :3
If the album is surpassing 100k, it'll really great.
Beside, I don't think the handshake event will help a lot since the ballot will only open until 18, but it'll definitely help the first week's sales, in the following week it'll be.. I don't need to say how it'll become
queryz 9th-Nov-2012 05:56 pm (UTC)
just hope Kisumai's sales will surpass 250k. It's like their standard already...
also, I'm quite curious who will win the battle, Kara vs. SZ XD

whited_79 10th-Nov-2012 07:05 am (UTC)
it also depends on the number of versions, their sales tend to follow that, and since this one has the same number of 4 versions like the previous one, they should surpass 250k...
stole_away 10th-Nov-2012 01:56 pm (UTC)
Sakamoto Maaya~~
whited_79 11th-Nov-2012 08:13 am (UTC)
Hope that she debuts in the top 5! :)
melinasb 12th-Nov-2012 02:33 am (UTC)
Hope Speed does well. This is like their worst promotion for a release ever. No media exposure at all, just relies on word of mouth I guess (ironically for a long awaited album) *sigh*
