Congrats to Mr.Children! More than 500k sold in the first week for every studio album since Atomic Heart. That's more than 18 years! Very very impressive! XD

Also congrats to UVERworld, though I would love for them to sell over 100k. And Yuming just killing it! Also glad that Kobukuro still managed to snatch no.2 despite BOYFRIEND having an event, and props to FLOWER for entering the top 10 and selling more than their previous single despite it being a remake. :)
