Omg AKB48 sales keep increasing every year o.o Although congrats to them, I'm little disappointed at Arashi's sales ;-; IT's still quite high but is it just me our their sale numbers are ever so slowly dropping??
Ganbatte Arashi~! ^^

I think it's only because the released three singles this year instead of five like last year. Sales-wise, Arashi is very consistent =3

Congratulations to all, particularly K8 for this year!

Mayuyu is so cute with that hair!:)

I'd be more interested in seeing the actual profit once everything is paid for, but I suppose companies wouldn't release that.
