NMB48’s “Kamonegikkusu” (カモネギックス) was the top single last week. It sold 374,644 copies, which is weaker than “Bokura no Eureka”, but better than their two singles before that, so . . . call it in-line with expectations.

E-girls did well at #2. Their “Gomennasai no Kissing You” saw 73,332 copies sold in its first week, which is not only their best showing ever, but it was only around 1,500 short of beating their previous two singles combined. So yeah, good stuff in E-girls land.

At #3, Akanishi Jin-kun’s “Ai naru hou e” did not do so well, selling 42,263 copies – less than half of his comeback single. Of course, there was not only less buzz about this, but it’s also very close to the release of “Hey, What’s Up!”.

Berry Koubou took #4 with 36,950 copies of “Motto Zutto Issho ni Itakatta/ROCK Erotic” sold.

Hoshino Gen-san’s “Jigoku de Naze Warui” was at #5, selling 25,355.

“Tsuyoku Hakanaku/Belief ~Haru wo Matsu Kimi e” from flumpool was right behind with 25,208 sold.

In its second week, Not Yet’s “Hiri Hiri no Hana” had a decent showing at #11 – actually unusually strong for a -48 family release. It tacked on 11,248 – more than 10% of first week sales – to bring its total to 118,826.

“No Limit” from EXILE also had a relatively good second week, with an additional 8,453 copies sold for a total of 83,585.

At #13, AKB48’s “Koisuru Fortune Cookie” is still looking strong in its seventh week. Its total is now 1,447,214.

The third week for “Time Machine Nante Iranai” from Maeda Atsuko-san brought 3,440 more sales at #19 and a new total of 74,293.

Shoujo Jidai’s “Galaxy Supernova” was at #22 and now has a three-week total of 65,329.

The everlasting duo – Amano Haruko’s “Shiosai no Memory” and Linked Horizon’s “Jiyuu e no Shingeki” – continued on at #24 and #29 respectively. “Shiosai” now has a ten-week total of 155,116, and “Jiyuu” has 219,920 in sales after thirteen weeks.

In its fourteenth week, “Girl’s Rule” from Nogizaka46 dropped ten spots – from #18 to #28 – but it can still boast an impressive total of 449,513.

The top album for the past week was Perfume’s “LEVEL3”, which did very well, selling 165,748 copies.

Superfly’s “Superfly BEST” had an exceptionally good second week – holding #2 with 70,267 copies sold, bringing its total to 226,823.

At #3, SCANDAL’s “STANDARD” sold 43,069.

Nishino Kana-san’s two albums – “Love Collection ~mint~” and “Love Collection ~pink~” – were split this time, taking #4 and #6. Their five-week totals are 252,954 and 246,734.

In between the two Nishino Kana-san albums was the Amachan compilation album from various artists. It gained new strength in its sixth week, popping up from #9 to #5, selling 10,120 for a total of 145,334.
