Back with a new Oricon Weekly roundup.

This article covers the 5th week of January, including singles and albums released between 29/01/2024 and 04/02/2024.

The Oricon charts, known for their comprehensive coverage of the Japanese music industry, provide valuable insights into the best-selling CDs across various categories. These charts serve as a reliable indicator of popular and successful releases, be it physical singles, albums, EPs, or mini-albums.

The Oricon charts meticulously monitor the performance of both physical and digital releases, allowing music enthusiasts to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and sales figures.

However, the focus of this feature is directed specifically towards physical releases, including singles and albums/EPs/mini-albums.

Let’s take a look at the data.

Oricon Weekly Albums Ranking


NEW ENTRY: XlamV “raise”

XlamV “raise”

XlamV‘s long-awaited 2nd EP “raise” arrived to shake things up and solidify the 2D group as one of the best. And matching the awesome performances in it were the 5,368 copies sold.

The EP sits comfortably at #12.




After an impressive first week of sales, UNDEAD‘s “TRIP Vol. 8” slips on the chart.

The album sold 2,346 copies, slipping from #2 to #24.

Oricon Weekly Singles Ranking

Café Parade‘s “CIRCLE OF DELIGHT 03“ enters the chart at #21 after selling 2,070 copies.



Mofumofuen "THE IDOLM@STER SideM CIRCLE OF DELIGHT 04 Mofumofuen"

And following close behind is Mofumofuen with “CIRCLE OF DELIGHT 04“. The single sold 1,483 copies, more than enough to grab a spot at #25.

By highlighting the best-selling CDs every week, the Oricon charts offer a snapshot of the Japanese music scene’s popularity and commercial success.

Lastly, Oricon charts’ commitment to inclusivity extends beyond mainstream genres, encompassing a wide array of musical styles. From pop to rock, hip-hop to jazz, and everything in between, these charts strive to reflect the diverse and ever-evolving tastes of music listeners in Japan.

If there aren’t sales figures on the prints posted, the music label behind that artist doesn’t want to disclose that information.

It often happens with the Daily rankings. The Oricon charts depicted here only count physical copies. Digital figures are featured on a different chart that is not covered here.
