[Oricon Monthly] Fling Posse & Matenro, QUARTET NIGHT and more top July’s charts

Oricon Monthly July’s final rankings are out.

The trend continues and July was dominated by hip-hop. Fling Posse VS Matenro showed impressive sales figures upon release, establishing itself as the most successful release in the Hypnosis Mic franchise. Buster Bros!!! VS MAD TRIGGER CREW held their own and impress with their 3rd month in a row featured on this chart. QUARTET NIGHT continue to impress with their success and, for a change, rock gets to be feature on this chart by the hands of OLDCODEX.

This is July 2018’s Oricon Chart.



NEW ENTRY: Fling Posse VS Matenro

Fling Posse VS Matenro has been setting and breaking records within the Hypnosis Mic franchise. The album dominated digital charts, Billboard’s top charts and Oricon Daily and Weekly rankings. Fling Posse VS Matenro did in three weeks what Buster Bros!!! VS MAD TRIGGER CREW couldn’t in 12 weeks, displaying impressive sales power from the get-go – over 55.000 copies -, and perfectly wrapping up July with 71,757 copies sold in three weeks.

This album sits on the throne of most successful Hypnosis Mic release. By the end of July, this album ranks at #6 on Oricon’s Monthly Album chart.

Buster Bros!!! and MAD TRIGGER CREW‘s “Buster Bros!!! VS MAD TRIGGER CREW” are on their third month featured on Oricon Monthly Album Chart. The album managed to recover most of the ground it had lost in June, ending up jumping from #43 to #16. This album has 54,616 copies sold (cumulative)

QUARTET NIGHT did the impossible and went Gold as soon as their new single “FLY TO THE FUTURE” was released. The single entered July’s chart (the first day of the subsequent month still counts) with only one day of sales and snatched a #5 from this month’s Single Chart.

A reminder that this single is going to be certified Gold Record by RIAJ (awarded to singles/albums that sell over 100.000 copies).

NEW ENTRY: OLDCODEX “Heading to Over”

OLDCODEX‘s new single “Heading to Over” wraps up this chart – for all that matters regarding male seiyuu projects – with a comfortable rank on Oricon Monthly. The single, featured as the opening theme for the new season of Free!, managed to stay within Oricon Weekly’s top 50 for two weeks, peaking at #9.

Sales dropped considerable between its first and third weeks on the chart, leaving “Heading to Over” hanging in the middle of this month’s chart. “Heading to Over” ranks at #32 on Oricon Monthly Single Chart.

And that’s all for July’s results.
