On the album side there will be a new number one but it’s a bit close to call between ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION and their album “BEST HIT AKG” at just over 86,000 sold and Tokyo Jihen’s last new song album “color bars” at over 79,000 sold.
Also making a good showing on the album charts is the K-ON! movie soundtrack – it should land in the top 5!
