Popular idol group, AKB48 have achieved their 10th consecutive million-selling single with "Eien Pressure," featuring Shimazaki Haruka (18) at the center when she won the janken tournament back in September this year. The record began with "Sakura no Ki ni Narou" (February last year), for a total of 11 million-selling singles overall. This is the first time for a female group. For male groups, the last time it was achieved was by B'z with "Real Thing Shakes" (June 1996), 16 years and 6 months ago, making AKB48 only the second group to achieve this. The group now has surpassed Mr.Children for total number of million-selling singles sold (Mr.Children with 10), at second place behind B'z (15 total million-selling singles). AKB48 have also extended the record for female group with the most no.1 singles starting from their 14th single, "RIVER" (October 2009).

Meanwhile, popular group, EXILE have reached the top spot in the albums chart with their double best album, "EXILE BEST HITS -LOVE SIDE/SOUL SIDE-." This is their 5th consecutive no.1 album, and 15th no.1 album overall, making it a tie with Mr.Children at second place, with the first place held by B'z (25 no.1 albums overall). This album is divided into 2, with "LOVE SIDE" as a collection of love ballads, and "SOUL SIDE" as a collection of up-tempo numbers. The album includes songs from their debut 11 years ago in 2001, as well as the merging with new members in 2009, for a total of 29 songs.

In the music-DVD chart, popular group, SMAP have topped the chart with their live DVD, "GIFT of SMAP CONCERT '2012." The DVD also topped the overall DVD chart simultaneously. This is their 4th consecutive no.1 music-DVD since "SMAP 2008 super.modern.artistic.performance tour" (December 2008), as well as their 7th no.1 music-DVD overall. The DVD has footage from their nationwide "GIFT OF SMAP CONCERT TOUR 2012" which began on August 23rd, especially filmed at their 5-days in Tokyo Dome (September 26th~30th). There's also a total of 1 hour and 40 minutes of bonus footage included. For an overall 955,000 attendance, the final leg of the tour will be at Sapporo Dome on December 24th.
