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 - Becky, SOPHIA, 9nine, moumoon, girl next door, RAM WIRE, DaizyStripper, BIGMAMA, Kaya, Aobouzu, The Mirraz, Koyanagi Yuki

Albums - Rabbit, Aimer, Sonoda Band, LAMA, chocolat, JONTE, MaxBoys, KG, Kumaki Anri, SEIKIMA II

If KHJ doesn't have any event, then Nana/flumpool/Ketsumeishi can steal the no.1 spot in albums chart I'm sure. Then it'd be a pretty race to the top between the four, I hope. Also rooting for Kou, LUNA SEA and The Cro-magnons! :)

that's too high for NEWS since they got little promotion.

they sold 245k for Chankapaana in the first week, and the people taking NINKI survey always base their choices on the very recently previous releases...

the only reason his last single went a little over 200k total (201k to be exact) is because of the cheap CDs being bought for his free concert...without events like that, it's very likely he'll only sell like 100k, which would be the same number as JGS...

if he does the same events like he did for HEAT, where any fans who bought his CD can shake his hand at odaiba, plus the other gimmicky events he did to up the sales...then yeah he can sell more than 200k.

This is going to be an interesting week ^^ I'm curious if KHJ will really sell so high.
Also, wow, NEWS' ninki is quite high, isn't it? Are these numbers realistic?

Rooting for flumpool, Lead and 9nine.

Thanks for sharing this ♥

oricon members taking NINKI surveys usually based their intents on the latest release...KHJ did 187k for his last single, NEWS did 245k for theirs, so NINKI reaching this numbers are expected...let's say, both KHJ and NEWS did a little over 100k with this release, it's very likely that their NINKI ratings the next time will probably be around 100 points only...
