While there are some notable Johnny’s releases in April, the release list looks quite a bit thinner than it was in March, so I guess the release flood is abating. Still, there’s plenty to talk about for Johnny’s fans – headline groups SMAP and Arashi both have singles, Johnny’s West has their début single with no way to predict the results there, and the potential sales for Nakayama Yuma-kun’s new single are similarly difficult to guess.
This list has selected single and album releases for the month, not all of them (i.e. releases from groups that I’m interested in tracking or at least recognize). I know I must have missed important ones, so please mention the artist and title in a comment and I’ll update the list.
More complete listings are available on merchant websites (I use CD Japan’s list).
