[Oricon Weekly] Hiro Shimono, KiLLER KiNG, THRIVE and more top this week’s Oricon Chart

We’re back with a new Oricon Weekly roundup.

This article covers the second week of March – which includes singles/albums released between 12/03/2018 and 18/03/2018.

Let’s take a look at the data.

Oricon Weekly Album ranking


NEW ENTRY: Hiro Shimono “Color of Life”

After an incredibly consistent week of sales, Hiro Shimono‘s mini-album “Color of Life” currently occupies #8 on this week’s Oricon Chart. “Color of Life” sold a total of 7.124 copies on its first week, leading to Shimono beating his personal Oricon Weekly record, ranking for the first time within top 10.


NEW ENTRY: KiLLER KiNG “Phantom of Love”

KiLLER KiNG made their comeback last week with the dramatic mini-album, “Phantom of Love“. The mini-album had a rather comfortable first week run on Oricon, however its sales were rather lackluster (physically). “Phantom of Love” sold a bit over 3.600 copies, which earned them a solid #18 on this week’s chart.

Ryuseitai‘s first full-length album “Ensemble Stars! Album Series Ryuseitai” had a massive slip from #2 to #20 on Oricon Weekly. The album has now over 30.000 copies sold.

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.
