We’re back with a new Oricon Weekly roundup.

This article covers the second week of February – which includes singles/albums released between 12/02/2018 and 18/02/2018.

Let’s take a look at the data.

Oricon Weekly Album ranking


Uta no Prince-Sama Shining Masterpiece Show “Trois”

After a strong first week run on Oricon, Uta no Prince-Sama Shining Masterpiece Show‘s second release “Trois dropped a couple of spots (from #4 to #16). Two weeks since it’s release, the mini-album has a little bit over 20.000 copies sold.

Oricon Weekly Single ranking



ST☆RISH set a new record among male seiyuu/2.5D units with “ULTRA BLAST“. After toping Oricon Daily and Tower Record’s charts upon its release, the single went gold in just 4 days, the fastest any male seiyuu or 2.5D unit has ever managed to get a Gold Record certification. With over 100.000 copies sold by the end of the week, ST☆RISH sit now comfortably on #2.

Riding on a lot of momentum, especially with the anime adaptation currently airing, IDOLiSH7‘s “WiSH VOYAGE” displayed once again the unit’s popularity, selling over 20.000 copies on its first week of sales after a solid run on Oricon Daily’s charts.

After the first release of the 3rd ANNIVERSARY DISC series was featured on Oricon’s Weekly chart last month, it is time for the second disc – this one featuring FRAME, Mofumofuen and F-LAGS – to chart within top 20. Up against tough competition, the release still managed to sell a little bit over 9.500 copies, leading to this release’s #17 spot.


NEW ENTRY: Tetsuya Kakihara “DIAMOND BEAT”

Tetsuya Kakihara‘s “DIAMOND BEAT” might have brought back a electronica/dance-pop sound to the table that will have some of his old school fans raving about, however, no matter how good it sounds, this single wasn’t even close to his best performing on Oricon. “DIAMOND BEAT” sold a little bit over 8.700 copies, earning Kakihara a solid spot within top 20.

The latest release from the Prince Of Tennis franchise is out. Keigo Atobe’s (Junichi Suwabe) “DISCOVER” had a low key week of sales (only a bit over 2.000 copies sold in one week) which led to the current #33 that it occupies.


NEW ENTRY: Kiyosumi Sengoku “Valentine Kiss”

Yet another release from the Prince Of Tennis release, Kiyosumi Sengoku’s (Toriumi Kousuke) “バレンタイン・キッス” (Valentine Kiss) had an equally mellow week of sales yet it still earned it a place within top 40.

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.
