Says a lot about a country's current state of the music industry that only 1 (EXILE TRIBE) out of the top 25 singles of the year is not from an idol group.

@whitedove:  No problem!

@skylight:  To be honest though?  That release might as well be considered an idol release considering the gimmick that was used to sell it (attaching the single to concert tickets); it's no more genuine than anything else that was gimmicked on that list.  Albums are where you find diversity now (and to a certain extent DVDs and Blu-rays as well), and if you're looking for what songs actually achieve a degree of popularity with the more general public, look at the Digital Single Charts on Recochoku and iTunes, as they provide a much, much better look at that than Oricon has in a long time.

@Kathia:  Top 100s weren't out yesterday, but are now - attaching them below.

Oricon is really different compare soundscan, special AKB48's album, single

and AKB48's dvd sale low, I watch many of them and must it's boring, same setlist, same outfit, same theme. Momoclo's dvd is better, esp their kokuritsu concert!

@Ryusenkai, Pretty much. Interestingly in that singles top 10, the only single that didn't have gimmicks is Arashi's, an idol group, not Exile Tribe.

Between holiday craziness and the sheer amount of chart translating that I did last week, I needed a brief break. Will be back in the saddle tomorrow though.

^Sorry, they were never posted - best I can do is give you this week's combined DVD/Blu-ray chart and you can subtract out the numbers from the Blu-ray chart and get what the Top 10 DVDs sold.

Anyway, New releases are out a day early due to the holidays.
