The singles charts are topped by boy idol group Sexy Zone with their 3rd single “Sexy Summer ni Yuki ga Furu” selling a good 85,000 copies. This gives the group their 3rd #1 single! Sexy Zone’s first two singles, “Sexy Zone” (Nov 2011) & “Lady Diamond” (April 2012), both charted #1 on the weekly Oricon singles charts.

Topping the album charts is Koichi Domoto, one half of KinKi Kids with his 3rd solo album, “Gravity” selling a nice 101,000 copies. Dropping into the second is last week’s topper Tatsuro Yamashita and his best songs compilation album “OPUS All Time Best 1975-2012” selling another 85,000 copies.

Not quite making it into the top 10 is Aimer and her first album “Sleepless Nights” selling over 8,000 copies to land in the 11th spot on the charts.
