The top single for the past week was “Hikaeme I Love You!” (控えめ I love you!) from HKT48, which saw 277,534 copies sold. That’s the best first week result for the group, narrowly continuing their streak of growth.

Fudanjuku was at #2 with “BE HERO” selling 32,248.

Taking #3 in its second week, “Midaretemina” from 2PM had a very good second week – selling 14,374 to pass the gold mark, reaching 109,471.

“Tokyo Victory” by Southern All Stars got #9 with 8,273 sold in its third week, and now boasts a total of 119,386 copies sold.

Hikawa Kiyoshi-san’s “Choito Kimagure Watari Dori” took #14, selling 6,206 in week two to bring its total to 59,338.

The top single for the past week was . . . EXILE TRIBE’s “THE REVOLUTION” which popped up from #129 to #1 in its fifth week by selling 156,271 copies to boost its total to 483,062. Really? Well, there’s no doubt at this point that we have some crazy manipulation on this one, since this is nothing like a normal sales curve. Even if the single sold just 100k in its first week, it shouldn’t have ended up all the way out of the top 100 in just its fourth week. And just like with that EXILE single a while back, it looks like the net goal is to get in the year-end top 10 by pushing everyone else up to and including Arashi, SKE48, and Nogizaka46 down a step.

If not for the EXILE TRIBE jump, it would have been 2PM’s “Midaretemina” at the top. As it was, it had to settle for #2 with 95,097 copies sold.

Hikawa Kiyoshi-san’s “Choito Kimagure Watari Dori” took #3, selling a solid 53,132.

At #4, “Omoide Breaker” from Lead sold 43,227.

“Sayonara no Mae ni” from AAA saw 25,018 copies sold at #5.

Southern All Stars saw their latest single, “Tokyo Victory”, take #6 in its second week. It sold a very strong 18,468 to boost its total to 111,113.

In its eleventh week, Nogizaka46’s “Natsu no Free & Easy” tacked on 6,598 in sales at #13, bringing its total to 508,856.

Taking #15 in its third week, Hey! Say! JUMP’s “Weekender/Ashita e no Yell” got above 200k, selling 5,528 to reach a total of 204,097 copies sold.

“Highschool Love” from E-girls took #19, selling 4,540 to bring its two week total to 65,586.

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 #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 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.

The top single for the past week was Kanjani8’s “Hibiki”, which sold 206,091 copies  and seems to be on a similar trajectory as their previous single released only seven weeks ago – “Kokoro Sora Moyou”.

There was very little competition for Kanjani8, as the number two spot was taken by Sakanaction’s “Goodbye/Eureka”, which sold 22,195 – little more than a tenth of the number Kanjani8 put up. It’s still not a good time for new releases, apparently.

Nogizaka46’s “Barrette” was the next notable single, taking #9 in its eighth week by selling 10,097 copies to push its total to the vicinity of 500k – 496,164.

At #12, Fukuda Kouhei-san’s “Nanbu Semishigure” is still hanging out. It now boasts a sixty-five week total of 135,463.

Kanjani8’s “Kokoro Sora Moyou” no doubt benefited through the coattail effect from the release of the new single – it bounced from #30 to #13, selling 5,049 copies in its seventh week for a total of 230,342.

“101 Kaime no Noroi” from Golden Bomber took #14 this week with its three-week total now at 170,306.

The Busaiku team from Kis-My-Ft2 was right behind at #15, with their “Tana kara Botamochi” selling 3,733 in week six. Its total is now 192,367.

At #16, AKB48’s “Koisuru Fortune Cookie” is still adding to its formidable total after twenty-two weeks. It surpassed 1.5 million this week, reaching 1,503,487.
