We’re back with a new Oricon Weekly roundup.
This article covers the third week of April – which includes singles/albums released between 16/04/2018 and 22/04/2018. Taking into account that this week there weren’t any male seiyuu singles charting, we won’t cover that section.
Let’s take a look at the data.
Oricon Weekly Album ranking
NEW ENTRY: Daisuke Ono “STARTRAIN”
Since its release, Daisuke Ono‘s “STARTRAIN” has been nothing short of impressive.
The album ranked ranked #9 on Billboard Japan Hot Albums chart, and at the same time was attempting to break Ono‘s records on Oricon Daily charts, entering top 10 upon release and refusing to leave it during its first week of sales.
By the end of the week, “STARTRAIN” had beaten most of his previous releases’ ranks, establishing itself as one of OnoD‘s most successful releases up until now (the record holder – #4 on Oricon Weekly – is “Doors“, album released back in 2015). The album is currently on #5 with a bit over 10.000 copies sold in just one week.

NEW ENTRY: Joshua “Dear Vocalist Xtreme Entry No.2 Joshua”
Another month and another Dear Vocalist release ranking high on Oricon Weekly. This time around it’s Joshua‘s (Nobunaga Shimazaki) turn to enter top 25 with his entry in the Xtreme series. The single sold a bit over 2.000 copies during its first week of sales, earning it a comfortable #24.
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 and ranks might be different.
