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 - Aoi Eir, AK-69, SPYAIR, Miura Ryosuke, Clammbon, Prizmmy, R Shitei, Kondo Masahiko, STARDUST REVUE, Sakura Gakuin, ET-KING, J-MIN, MYNAME


It should be an easy no.1 for Yuming I think. I hope that Miliyah can sell decently though. The singles chart seems to be pretty interesting, isn't it? MomoCloZ, SNSD and Mayuyu will be vying for that no.1 spot. The interest for MomoCloZ has increased a lot it seems and I won't be surprised if they get it, though I think Mayuyu might just have a slightly better chance. It looks a bit more difficult for SNSD though since this single only has one version.

Also rooting for SID and FMB!

GENERATIONS' debut is the one I'm most looking forward to♥
kamui_naomi 16th-Nov-2012 07:36 am (UTC)
go momoclo! I'm hoping they'll sell better since it's a drama theme song plus famous composer.

so hyped for TRUE LOVERS

Wow, single charts - especially the first 3 places - will be interesting next week!
I kinda like Mayu's single, so I hope she'll be doing well.

Also, I didn't know that Matchy has a release! Hope he will do well! Same goes for c-ute.

Thanks for sharing! ♥

Guess album chart top positions shouldn't have too much surpises, but singles chart will be interesting.. bring on the idols fight!

I'm rooting for Mayuyu!! Well Sexy Zone's album NINKI were much lower than KARA, yet their album is currently selling much more than KARA's. Sashi's single has also beat KARA.
Excited for SID and SPYAIR's single too, and GENERATION debut. The Second From Exile managed to sell over a 100k last week
whited_79 17th-Nov-2012 05:53 am (UTC)
well since I use's hourly chart as my guide and they usually work...

I thought KARA could beat SZ too, but KARA's album only touched the Amazon chart top 10 a couple of days before release date...while SZ's album isn't in the top 10 at the moment, but it did spend almost a week in the top 10 when it was announced...I should've known that SZ will beat KARA then...and then on the first day of release, SZ's album is ahead of KARA's in TSUTAYA chart...that seals the deal...

as for Yuming's album vs Miliyah's though, Yuming's album has consistently been in the top 10 of most online stores especially the most relevant since the very first day of the release even managed to grab the no.1 spot a few times...Miliyah's album however, hasn't touched the top 10 yet, and even barely manages to stay in the top 20...I'd say at this point, Yuming is ahead of Miliyah...

while these online stores are only a small significance compared to physical stores, but's chart is usually right when it comes to positions....

"10 18.90 Kamiya Hiroshi + Ono Daisuke - Bokura Dake no Monogatari"

There's a Shizaya duet and I somehow missed the news of this????? Well, I'm not all THAT surprised because school's been keeping me busy. But...I was just thinking last night how I wanted a Lunar Maria/Such a Beautiful Affair mashup. >.>

Looking forward to GENERATIONS' debut. I wonder how they will do on the charts. BRAVE IT OUT is really a catchy song, it makes Sugarless a lot better. And of course rooting for Sata Andagi.
mina_sweet_chan 16th-Nov-2012 04:31 pm (UTC)
Idol fight for the single chart this week! XD
Do your best GENERATIONS!
sballet06 16th-Nov-2012 04:31 pm (UTC)
Rooting for Miliyah and SJJD <3
eishastan 16th-Nov-2012 04:58 pm (UTC)
As much as i wish that SJJD gets the #1 spot, it's not going to happen imo, the single has 1 cd-only edition and the album is out a week later.
chrismellody 16th-Nov-2012 06:16 pm (UTC)
C-ute wasn't even mentioned lol

Last time MomoCloZ numbers aren't as high as this one, wow...
hina 16th-Nov-2012 09:13 pm (UTC)
I really hope Mayuyu gets no1. I usually don't really like her, but her song and concept this time is so on point and perfect, I'd like her to succeed.
edneichon 17th-Nov-2012 01:57 am (UTC)
Celebration Day concert was AMAZING!!!!!!

Brilliant group <3
tha_x 17th-Nov-2012 04:05 am (UTC)
Hopefully Goddess Mayuyu will sell better this time.
aduck8myshoes 17th-Nov-2012 05:26 am (UTC)
To think I'd ever see MomoKuro up that high! My precious bbs!
blackdevil2722 18th-Nov-2012 04:26 am (UTC)
omg the singles chart. Crazy tough competition but I still hope Mayuyu can top this. "Hikaru Monotachi" is a really addictive song w good B-side previews thus far and I'm getting it for suree.
