[Oricon Weekly] SolidS, Matenrou, Buster Bros!!! & MAD TRIGGER CREW and more impress on this week’s chart

We’re back with a new Oricon Weekly roundup.

This article covers the third week of May – which includes singles and albums released between 21/05/2018 and 27/05/2018. 

Let’s take a look at the data.

Oricon Weekly Album ranking



Buster Bros!!! VS MAD TRIGGER CREW‘s continues to impress on Oricon Weekly despite having lost some steam since last week. The album dropped from #2 to #14 but sold over 6.000 copies during its second week of sales, something that up until now, not a single crew part of the Hypnosis Mic franchise had been able to achieve (they are stronger on digital sales as opposed to physical).

This release has currently a bit under 20.000 copies sold.

For those that purchased the album, a reminder: don’t forget to cast your votes for the crew you want to go to the finals to face the winner of Fling Posse VS Matenrou. Instructions on how to do it come with the battle card included with the album.

NEW ENTRY: Tetsuya Kakihara “I for U”

Kakihara‘s newest album had a rather mellow first week of sales, yet the album never left top 20 during the first couple of days on the charts. With a bit over 6.400 copies sold, “I for U” sits comfortably at #15.

NEW ENTRY: SolidS “Lady Joker”

SolidS‘ Shiki (Takuya Eguchi) and Tsubasa (Soma Saito) teamed up for the first release of Tsukipro‘s newest series, “RE:START“. The duo performed “Lady Joker“, song that sold a bit under 2.500 copies during its first week of sales. The first take on the “RE:START” series sits comfortably at #36.

NEW ENTRY: QUELL (Ichiru Kuga) “Nemuru Okarasu”

QUELL‘s second release for the Kachofugetsu Hen series impressed. Sho Nogami (as Ichiru Kuga) performed  the delicate yet powerful “Nemuru Okarasu“, single that sold a bit over 1.700 copies, entering the chart at #42.

RE-ENTRY: Matenrou “Matenrou -onnin rinshou”

The surprise from this week’s chart is Matenrou. The Hypnosis Mic crew re-entered the Oricon Weekly Chart with their first release “Matenrou -onnin rinshou”, released last year in December. The single sold a bit over 1.400 copies earning it a re-entry on this chart at #47.

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.
