[Oricon Weekly] Idolmaster SideM and Ensemble Stars’ units featured on this week’s roundup

New week, new Oricon Weekly roundup. Taking into account that there were no seiyuu/2.5D unit releases featured in the album category, this week’s report will only contain info regarding the single category.

This article covers the second week of December – which includes singles/albums released between 11/12/2017 and 17/12/2017.

Let’s take a look at the data.

Oricon Weekly Single ranking

NEW ENTRY: Idolmaster SideM’s Beit, W and S.E.M’s singles

Idolmaster SideM‘s units S.E.M, Beit and W released special animation singles in the past week. “From Teacher To Furure!“, “TOMORROW DIAMOND” and “AFTER THE RAIN” were released on the same day and are all charting close to each other, with two of the releases charting within top 10.

Each unit has over 10.000 copies sold on the first week of sales. “From Teacher To Furure!” occupies #8, “TOMORROW DIAMOND” occupies #9 and “AFTER THE RAIN” is currently sitting on #12.

Ensemble Stars!’s Trickstar and Switch within top 40

A week after both releases ranked within top 10 on Oricon Weekly, Trickstar and Switch‘s releases lose a couple of spots on the chart. Both are still ranking close to each other and within top 40.

Trickstar‘s “Ensemble Stars! Unit song CD 3rd series vol.8 Trickstar” dropped from #6 to #34 and Switch‘s “Ensemble Stars! Unit song CD 3rd series vol.9 Switch” dropped from #7 to #38. Both releases have over 11.000 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.
