Switch‘s first album “Ensemble Stars! Album Series Switch” slipped on Oricon Weekly. The album’s sales dropped, not being enough to maintain their spot at #4. The album is now ranked at #28.


NEW ENTRY: UMake “Make up a dream”

Self-producing duo UMake (Kento Ito and Yoshiki Nakajima) released their first full-length album. “Make up a dream” sold 1.643 copies during its first week, enough to grab a spot at #31.


Nobuhiko Okamoto “Braverthday”

Nobuhiko Okamoto slips on Oricon Weekly. After selling 1.252 copies in the past week, “Braverthday” dropped from #10 to #44. The mini-album has over 7.000 copies sold in two weeks.



Spring Troupe‘s “A3! VIVID SPRING EP” recovered a couple of places since last week. Now on its 3rd consecutive week on Oricon Weekly, “A3! VIVID SPRING EP” jumps from #50 to #46.

This week there were no 2.5D units, 2D idols, bands or male seiyuu (solo artists) featured on Oricon Weekly Single Chart.

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.
