[Oricon Weekly] Feromen, Idolmaster SideM, Yumeiro Cast and more on this week’s roundup

New week, new Oricon Weekly roundup. The trend continues as there is not a single male seiyuu/2.5D unit album charting in the top 50 Oricon Weekly during the past week. This weekly summary is going to focus solely on single releases.

This article covers the fourth week of November – which includes singles/albums released between 27/11/2017 and 03/12/2017.

Let’s take a look at the data.

Oricon Weekly Single ranking


Feromen, seiyuu unit consisting of Junichi Suwabe and Kousuke Toriumi, returned from hiatus with the dramatic single “OPERA“, ending theme for the currently airing anime “Dies Irae“. The duo had a solid week of sales with over 10.000 units sold.

OPERA” currently occupies #11 on Oricon Weekly.

NEW ENTRY: Yumeiro Cast “Saigo no Lonely Christmas”

Yumeiro Cast powered their way into this week’s Oricon Charts with the Christmas ballad “Saigo no Lonely Christmas“. This special release sold 3.621 copies on its first week of sales, earning them a modest #29 on Oricon Weekly.

NEW ENTRY: Showtaro Morikubo “FIRE”

Showtaro Morikubo made a comeback with the aggressive “FIRE“. However the feedback to this release – at least when it comes to physical copies – wasn’t as aggressive. The release occupies #50 on Oricon weekly after selling only 1.224 copies.

Mezzo “Dear Butterfly” slips on the chart

IDOLiSH7‘s sub-unit, Mezzo might have released what is quite possibly their best single, yet the release had a massive drop on Oricon Weekly on its second week since release. The single that occupied #12 is now on #46. “Dear Butterfly” has over 10.000 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.
