Topping the singles chart is KANJANI8 with King of Otoko! selling over 352,000 copies. Its their 25th single and 3rd of a 3-month consecutive release plan. Perhaps the lure of bonuses for purchasing all 3 singles in the plan pulled their 24th single Hibiki into the #9 spot and 23rd single Kokoro Sora Moyo into #11.
Anime tied releases – #10 is Jigoku no Sata mo Kimishidai the opening theme for Hozuki no Reitetsu and sung by many of the anime voice cast. In #12 spot is singer and voice actor Mamoru Miyano with 10th single NEW ORDER with tie-up as theme song for anime Wooser’s Hand-to-Mouth Life: Awakening Arc, and in #19 is nano with her 4th single Born to be featured as ending theme for anime Magical Warfare.
The album chart is topped by Sexy Zone with their 2nd album Sexy Second selling 121,000 copies. Just back in the #2 spot is longtime group Yuzu with 12th album Shin Sekai selling 113,000 copies. In the #4 spot is Leo Ieiri with her 2nd album “a boy”.
