NEW ENTRY: Knights “Ensemble Stars! Album series Knights

Knights had a massive first week of sales. Their first album “Ensemble Stars! Album series Knights” jumped to top 5 spots upon release and refused to leave those during the whole week. With a bit under 50.000 copies sold during its first week Knight’s are the first Ensemble Stars! unit to sell this many copies during a first week for their Album series. “Ensemble Stars!

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 depicted here only count physical copies. Digital figures are featured on a different chart.
