The top single for the past week was “Tokyo Victory” from Southern All Stars, which sold 92,645 copies. The group has highly variable single sales and an album-buying fanbase, so there’s no way to assess this result.

At #2 was “Highschool Love” by E-girls, which sold a solid 61,046.

B1A4 took #3 with the Japanese version of “Solo Day” selling 47,479.

“Get Up!” from Nakayama Yuma-kun started out at #4 with the sale of 34,435 copies.

Hey! Say! JUMP’s “Weekender/Ashita e no YELL” was at #11 in its second week, selling 14,060 to bring its total to 198,569. That’s a bit on the weak side at around 7.6% of first week sales.

In its third week, AKB48’s “Kokoro no Placard” took #14 with 7,834 copies sold and a total of 1,035,154.

Right behind their sister group at #15, SKE48 saw 6,035 more copies of their “Bukiyou Taiyou” sold, getting its seven week total to 441,680.

Nogizaka46’s “Natsu no Free & Easy” was in at #18, selling 4,619 in its tenth week to boost its total above the double platinum level to 502,258.

Taking #19 in week two, “Always with you” by Generations from EXILE TRIBE sold 4,418, which is a solid 10% of first week sales, bringing its total to 49,195.

“Geragerapo no Uta” from King Cream Soda sold 2,914 at #25 in its twentieth week, now boasting a total of 110,138 copies sold.

At #29, Golden Bomber’s “Roller no Kizudarake” has a four-week total of 65,668.

On the album side, Takeuchi Mariya-san’s “TRAD” got the top spot, selling 118,697 copies.

WINNER took #2 with “2014 S/S -Japan Collection-” seeing 35,079 copies sold.

In week two, “Mr. S” from SMAP sold 17,716 to bring its total to 201,883.

Ariana Grande’s “My Everything” held on to #6 by selling 11,897 copies, getting its three-week total to 49,692.

Taking #8 in its third week, EXILE TRIBE’s “EXILE TRIBE REVOLUTION” sold 10,000 copies (amazing that it’s exactly 10,000) to push its total to 304,624.


The top single for the past week was Hey! Say! JUMP’s “Weekender/Ashita e no YELL”, which sold 184,509 copies. That pretty much splits the difference between “AinoArika” (207,469) and “Ride With Me” (162,993), so it looks like this is the new standard for HSJ singles – around 185k in the first week.

“EXCUSE ME” from B.A.P took #2, selling 50,723 copies. If Wiki’s numbers are right, this is their best result on a Japanese single to date.

In at #3 was “Always with you” from Generations from EXILE TRIBE, which sold 44,777. Seems like a certain other single and album might have taken some sales away from this one, as this is lower than I would have expected from them.

Porno Graffiti’s “”Oretachi no Celebration” took #4 with 24,697 in sales.

At #5, “Kokoro no Placard” from AKB48 sold 21,546 copies to bring its two-week total to 1,027,320. That’s at the low end of second week expectations for a -48 family unit at 2%, which is already far below the normal 8-12 % I would look for.

In its sixth week, SKE48’s “Bukiyou Taiyou” popped from #21 to #8 by selling 14,896. Its new total is 435,645.

Nogizaka46 got a smaller bump-up in week nine of sales for “Natsu no Free & Easy”, going from #26 to #15, adding 6,477 for a grand total of 497,639.

The second week of sales for “Namida no Ato ga Kieru Koro” from V6 saw solid results at #16 – 6,355 more copies sold and 67,438 in total.

The top single for the past week was AKB48’s “Kokoro no Placard” (心のプラカード), which sold 1,005,774 copies. That’s the lowest first week sales figure for the group since “Sakura no Ki ni Narō” in 2011, which was the last single where they didn’t break into seven digits, but it’s still above a million. Can’t really muster much concern when the number’s that big.

V6 got the second slot with “Namida no Ato ga Kieru Koro”, which sold 61,083. That seems fairly strong, but I don’t have prior numbers for the group with me (and in this case, no numbers on Wikipedia).

At #4, “Eiyuu no Uta” from The ALFEE sold 32,493.

Taking #5 was Kuraki Mai-san’s “Muteki na Heart”, selling 25,990 copies.

Right behind, “Mamma Mia” from KARA sold 25,702, but the gap between #6 and #7 was an even closer shave, as SID’s “Enamel” saw 25,638 copies sold.

The second week of sales for Golden Bomber’s “Roller no Kizudarake” got it to #12 with an additional 14,785 in sales, pushing its total to 57,630. That’s a very strong second week after a lackluster first week.

“Another Future” from Kis-My-Ft2 sold 8,794 at #15 in week three, and now has a total of 250,473 – breaking platinum.

Week five for “Bukiyou Taiyou” saw the SKE48 single at #21, as it sold 6,594 to bring its total to 420,749.

Nogizaka46 is still in there with “Natsu no Free & Easy” at #26 in its eighth week. Its running total is 491,162, with a chance to break double platinum in three weeks.

The top single for the past week was EXILE TRIBE’s “The Revolution” which sold 321,879 copies. Now, I hate to be suspicious or anything, but that’s around three times what the group normally manages on a single, so either this is a whopper of a song (I haven’t heard it), or I have to suspect something fishy is going on. I probably wouldn’t be as suspicious if not for that blatantly manipulated single from EXILE last year. If you know the story behind this single, please provide details in the comments.

Facing the opposite situation, Golden Bomber did worse than they normally do on their New Year’s singles, though we haven’t seen a single from them released on a date other than January 1st since November 2011. “Roller no Kizudarake” (ローラの傷だらけ) sold 42,845 copies to take #2.

At #3, “Get Away/The Jolly Roger” from VAMPS sold 35,777.

Tackey & Tsubasa got #4 with “Dakinatsu” (抱夏-ダキナツ-) seeing 29,246 sold.

S/mileage was at #5 with their new single “Aa Susukino/Chikyu wa Kyo mo Ai o Hagukumu” (嗚呼 すすきの/地球は今日も愛を育む) selling 28,051.

The second week of sales for Kis-My-Ft2’s “Another Future” brought it to #6 with a very strong 26,997 copies sold for a total of 241,679.

“A-ha-ha! ~Chouzetsu Bakushou Ondo~” from Super Girls took #18, tacking on 6,984 to bring its two-week total to 48,369.

Taking #23 in its third week, “ER2” from Eight Ranger – the alter-ego of Kanjani8 – sold an additional 5,084 and now has a total of 231,889.

The top single for the past week was SEKAI NO OWARI’s “Snow Magic Fantasy”, which managed to grab gold in its first week by selling 100,041 copies. This is easily their strongest single to date.

Below the top spot, all the significant singles in the top 30 were the usual suspects.

Kanjani8’s “Hibiki” took #3 with a respectable 21,424 copies sold to bring its two week total to 227,515.

At #5, “Kamonegikkusu” from NMB48 is back up again, bouncing from #32. It sold 18,964 in its seventeenth week, pushing its total to 494,378.

In its fourth week, Golden Bomber’s “101 Kaime no Noroi” got #11, now with 177,234 copies sold in total.

Taking #13 in its ninth week, Nogizaka46’s “Barrette” finally did it – it moved past the double platinum by selling 5,786 at #13. That got its total to 501,950.

Kanjani8’s “Kokoro no Sora Moyou” is also hanging out. It was at #14 in its eighth week with a total of 235,750.

Fukuda Kouhei-san’s “Nanbu Semishigure” is still here in its sixty-sixth week. Selling 4,762 at #15, its total is now 140,225.

At #18 in its tenth week, “Sansei Kawaii” from SKE48 keeps adding to its total. It reached 561,385 this past week.
