Oricon Weekly | Hiro Shimono, Tasuku Hatanaka and more top this week’s charts

We’re back with a new Oricon Weekly roundup.

This article covers the 3rd week of August – which includes singles and albums released between 17/08/2020 and 23/08/2020.

A note that, this week, there were no albums by male seiyuu, bands or 2D idol projects on Oricon’s Top 50. With that being said, this week this article will not feature the “Oricon Weekly Album Ranking” section.

Let’s take a look at the data.

Oricon Weekly Album Ranking


NEW ENTRY: Hiro Shimono “WE GO!”

Hiro Shimono WE GO Regular edition

Hiro Shimono‘s 2nd full-length album, WE GO! was extremely well received by his fans.

The album managed to sell 12,089 copies in its 1st week of sales, more than enough to earn a place at #5.




GRANRODEO‘s 15th anniversary was celebrated in style with the release of the tribute album, GRANRODEO Tribute Album“RODEO FREAK”.

Artists such as Takanori Nishikawa, MUCC and SID lent their talents to cover some of the band’s iconic songs. The album sits at #19 after selling 2,011 copies.

Oricon Weekly Single Ranking


NEW ENTRY: Tasuku Hatanaka “HISTORY”

Tasuku Hatanaka History

Tasuku Hatanaka‘s 4th single, HISTORY got a lukewarm reception, managing to sell only 1,399 copies, which puts the release at #30.

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.

It happens often with the Daily rankings. The Oricon charts depicted here only count physical copies. Digital figures are featured on a different chart.
