Idolmaster SideM’s Beit, W and S.E.M recover during the holidays
After slipping on the charts, Idolmaster SideM‘s units S.E.M, Beit and W are back in force on Oricon weekly, with all of them recovering several places in comparison with last week’s.
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.
