The top single for the past week was “Naite mo Iin da yo” by Momoiro Clover Z, which saw 66,854 copies sold in its first week.
At #2, “Donna toki mo zutto” from μ’ｓ sold 45,487 copies, and their “Sore wa Bokutachi no Kiseki” took #9 by selling 6,535 copies in its third week, reaching a total of 76,040.
Arashi’s “GUTS!” took #3 in its second week, boosting its total to 545,271 by selling 43,778 additional copies.
Taking #7, “Mirai to wa?” from SKE48 added 11,206 to its total in its eighth week, bringing it to 496,288.
Johnny’s WEST’s “Ee ja nai ka” got #11, and now has a three-week total of 282,975.
In its sixth week, Nogizaka46’s “Kizuitara Kataomoi” sold 5,124 to take #14. It now has a total of 523,309 copies sold.
Nakayama Yuma-kun’s “High Five” popped back up to #15 in its sixth week by selling 4,860. Unfortunately, I’ve lost track of its running total (different source for the numbers this week).
At #18, Fukuda Kouhei-san’s “Tougegoe” added another 10%, and now has a total of 47,159 after six weeks.
“Honoo to Mori no Carnival” from Sekai no Owari took #19, selling 3,583 in its fifth week and pushing its total to 95,153.
I also lost track of the total for AKB48’s “Mae Shika Mukanne”, which took #21 in its eleventh week, selling 3,370.
The real story of the week was on the album side, where the Frozen soundtrack did even better than it did last week. It sold a whopping 165,888 in its thirteenth week – and it’s a rare album that sells that much in its first week. Its total is now 465,975. I haven’t watched the movie or heard the soundtrack, but with results like these, I think I’ll have to do both. At this rate, it’ll be part of our common culture.
May J. continues to experience a huge boom, too, and retained #2. Her “Heartful Song Covers” sold 19,620 copies in its seventh week, and it has now sold 135,684 in total.
Getting #3, Pharrell Williams’ “Girl” saw 9,237 copies sold in week ten, and it now has a total of 56,627.
“HUMAN” from Fukuyama Masaharu-san sold 8,313 to take #4. Its new six-week total is 315,674.
Finally, “already” by Not yet sold 3,851 to take #10, and now boasts and total of 81,049 copies sold.
