The number one single of the past week was “Bokura no Eureka” (僕らのユリイカ) from NMB48, which took the top spot by selling 481,843 copies – just shy of the double platinum mark.

At #2 was EXILE’s “Flower Song”, selling a normal 107,486 for the group.

We continue to get good Korean representation on the charts with “I Wanna Dance” from SUPER JUNIOR Donghae & Eunhyuk at #3 with 54,220 copies sold and Shoujo Jidai’s “Love & Girls” at #4 with 42,796.

Lead’s “Upturn” sold 41,224 to get #5.

“Golden Chinatown/Sayonara Usotsuki no Watashi” (ゴールデン チャイナタウン/サヨナラ ウソつきの私) from Berry Koubou took #6, selling 31,558.

In its second week, Kanjani8’s “Namida no Kotae” was at #8, selling an additional 17,955 for a total of 266,709. That’s fairly weak.

Tohoshinki was at #13 with “OCEAN” tacking on 10,203 more copies sold for a two-week total of 151,075.

Right behind at #14, SMAP’s “Joy!!” now enjoys a three-week total of 368,119.

Arashi’s “Endless Game” found itself at #16 in its fourth-week. Its new total is 536,247.

Itano Tomomi-san’s “1%” spent its second week at #18, adding a solid 5,351 for a total of 49,981.

And at #20, “Sayonara Crawl” from AKB48 can boast a five-week total of 1,938,028.

“Preserved Roses”, the collaboration between T.M.Revolution and Mizuki Nana-san, is still in there in its sixth week, taking #26. Its total is 158,207.

The last notable single was SUPER☆GIRLS’ “Tokonatsu High Touch”, which got #28 in a very weak second week, adding only 2,196 for a new total of 78,133.

On the album side, B’z continued to dominate the top two spots for a second week. “B’z The Best XXV 1988-1998″ added 82,572 to push its total to 468,332 and “B’z The Best XXV 1999-2012″ got another 79,784 to bring its number to 457,074.

As is often the case, GReeeeN were excessively creative with their title. Their album at #3 is “いいね!(´﹒ω﹒‘)☆” and . . . yeah – 63,874 copies of it were sold. Not bad at all – it’s good to have a positive title, even if people can’t pronounce its entirety.

May J.’s “Summer Ballad Covers” took #4, selling 46,418 copies.
