We’re back with a new Oricon Weekly roundup.
This article covers the first week of February – which includes singles/albums released between 05/02/2018 and 11/02/2018.
Let’s take a look at the data.
Oricon Weekly Album ranking
NEW ENTRY: Uta no Prince-Sama Shining Masterpiece Show “Trois”
Uta no Prince-Sama Shining Masterpiece Show second release “Trois“, featuring Camus (Tomoaki Maeno), Ai (Shouta Aoi) and Syo (Hiro Shimono) had an extraordinary run, being close to beating a record among 2.5D units/seiyuu after ranking #1 on Oricon Daily upon release, refusing to leave the top 3 spots on Oricon Daily (was for two days straight in #1) during its first week of sales.
Unfortunately, midway through the week, the album’s sales decreased, which explains why the album only ranked at #4 on Oricon Weekly.
Uta no Prince-Sama Shining Masterpiece Show Trois sold over 16.000 copies on its first week.
Oricon Weekly Single ranking
NEW ENTRY: OLDCODEX “Growth Arrow”
OLDCODEX returned with new music after a successful arena tour. Despite its low sales during the first week, the punk-rock outfit’s “Growth Arrow” managed to rank within top 15 at #11, selling over 5.600 copies.

Daisuke Ono “Endless happy world” drops a couple of places
Daisuke Ono‘s “Endless happy world” drop almost 20 places (was #8 in the previous week) on Oricon Weekly. The entertaining release has now over 15.000 copies sold, two weeks after its release. “Endless happy world” currently occupies #23.
If there aren’t sales figures on the prints we’ve posted it’s because the music label behind that artist doesn’t want to disclose that information. The Oricon charts only count physical copies. Digital figures and ranks might be different.
