AKB48 singles slayed but did they released any DVDs this year? Congrats to my boys but hope they'll have concerts in BD soon.

Blue Ray costs a lot more than a regular DVD.
Arashi and Kisumai doesn't release BDs. I wonder why tho

I don't get why they aren't releasing BDs too. Don't they like money?

didnt akb have 2 singles and 2-3 dvds or something like that.tho there dvd sales dropped alot from last year. they sold around 100k last year of almost each dvd even the box set! and now they only reached around 30k.
moimoro released 2 albums and 2-3dvds right tho they sold a ton of that lol not a fan but thats still impressive

I think Momoclo released like 6 new DVD/BR and a few re releases from 2011. Their Blurays always sold higher than their DVDs too.

I was really surprised looking at akb48 dvd sales.

i have been wondering for years why Arashi never released BD for any of their cons.
i and many others would gladly buy and experience Arashi copncert in Bluray.
so sad they never release one:(
i was hoping for especially arafes and Popcorn to have Bluray

Arashi is amazing with the sales mainly from dvds so far. Also I'm glad that Kanjani8 is in the top 5 :)

AKB48 released DVDs but they sold less than last year and tbh Arashi has always outsold them DVD-wise so this makes sense (plus that double A-side which got 800k, which is higher than their avg sales. Despite what people say, one extra version does make a big difference).
buyme_arashi 23rd-Jun-2013 12:21 pm (UTC)
Fans do want more releases with extras, no doubt about it. I'm not the type to buy every versions but a lot of other Arasen with money do.
I just realized AKB has only 2 singles released. I thought there should be at least 3 singles out by now.
liime_arix 23rd-Jun-2013 01:52 pm (UTC)
I realised that fans in the west don't do it/like it. But that fans in Japan/China don't have a problem buying the multiple versions.
Nah it's always like this, they only make-up cash due to their expensive DVDs. Their singles are always Feb - May - Aug - Oct - Dec.

hope Kisumai will be in top 5 for the whole year.
sawsan88 24th-Jun-2013 12:12 pm (UTC)
Wow Kanjani8 Made it top 5<3 I'm happily surprised :)

Total idol domination!=O But I guess that was expected...

Congratulations Arashi! \o/
True kings of DVD sales! I wonder if AKB48 will be able to grasp first place by the end of the year. They do still have 3 singles to release and probably an album too. But Arashi won't stay idle either, they'll soon come with new releases themselves!xD

And I'm also happy to see Kanjani8 on the list!! They truly deserve it!

Surprised to see Momoiro Clover on third place!=O Not a huge fan, but I do understand why people like them!XD They're fun!
