Thank you!
ayu got 2 albums on top 30 and kuu's also on top 30!
Great!!

Btw I didn't see ayu's mini album sell more than kuu's full length album... it did with counting the around 600 blu-ray sales though... kuu should have sell more.
I hope both can keep selling great anyway

Anyone?
  
Alas, didn't see Himeka in top 300 anymore. But Beni is still around

174 107 ↓ Fortune 762 23,241 11/11/2 UM  BENI 5 6

And looking at the album chart, Kara for another possible number one?

Too bad Crystal Kay didn't reach the top 30 in singles nor album charts.

I expected IU to debut at least in the top 5, but let's see how she does in Japan when she officially debuts there.

IU was 7th yesterday, so she didn't debut top 5, but was pretty close lol.

It's pretty amazing to see that Japan's peak was short but sweet. They rose up REALLY quickly in the 90s and the dropped of just ten years later. The US market, for example, ALSO peaked in the 90s but was huge as well in the 80s and even 70s. The most amazing of all is the UK market... singles have NEVER sold better there and albums are also stronger compared to a few years ago. I mean, they have 60 million inhabitants or so, the US 300million, yet at times the UK top 10 almost looks better than that in the US.

And yes, the top 10 singles this year LOOKS good, but it's all in the hands of a very select number of artists and the market as a whole is still dying as much as before.

Yet, the UK & US include digital sales to their singles charts. Japan doesn't. The singles ranking would look a lot different if that was the case...

Japan is the only big market that managed to keep strong physical singles sales.

Part of it is because the singles in the UK and US have nothing special, not even a photo book or DVD or special events attached to it. It's just literally a plain song or 2 in a CD case and unappealing.

That was the last Oricon year to not have a million seller, until now that is.

I guess but then again sales back then weren't as high as the 90s-late 00s so it's fair.

Terrible that the music industry is like the state nowadays :/

are those the official yearly top album/single something
like when is counting to 2012 starting.

I'm so good at explaining idek what I'm trying to say.

I wonder when Oricon, if ever, will start implementing digital sales. To only include physical sales just seems so behind the times.

Japan's golden years musically is truly the end of the 80's until the early '00s, it's what we can call the 'songwriters boom', because songwriters whether they're solos or in bands totally dominate the industry and there were so many of them too! A friend of mine even mentioned that for Japan to get back on its feet musically, idols are never the answer, that the 'songwriters boom' needs to return and make another impact.

Though single-wise, I agreed with Osiris and Oricon, that UK & US incorporate digital sales that's why their sales can be so high.

Oh that would definitely make a difference, of course. Truth is though, the digital market has shrunk in Japan the past two years. I can't think of any other major market where digital sales aren't growing. If overall physical sales are decreasing and digital sales are decreasing, what's left?

But I definitely agree with whitedove: the answer is never Idols and a bazillion versions. They can only save themselves, NOT the industry.

@ Whitedove: Yarp, that was definitely the case. But in general. it was really the 90s in which sales really took the INSANE boosts upwards. I mean, it's amazing to think that a country could go from not even having a million seller to albums selling over 2, 3, 4, 5 and eventually even 7 or 8 million in a period less than 15 years or so. And then, of course, rever back in even less smiley: roll

09 16.30 WEAVER - Egao no Aizu
10 16.20 JUNO - believe... ~Kimi wo Shinjite~

It'd be interesting to see who will top the albums chart next week! FMB's last studio album in 2009 sold 80k in the first week, but then they had a boom with their best album last year (which is still charting to date and sold 618k+), so it's kinda hard to predict their sales with this latest studio album. Ketsumeishi did 88k with Ketsunopolis 7 this year, so of course I'm expecting better sales for their best albums. But then, they're releasing four at the same time and I'm expecting sales to be split among the 4. I need to find out which version Sakura is in, I bet that one will sell the most.
