Ikimonogakari's NEWTRAL Tops Oricon Album Charts 2 Weeks in a Row

Popular trio pop/rock band Ikimonogakari's 5th album "NEWTRAL" continues to sell very well on its 2nd week of sales, claiming the number 1 spot on the Oricon weekly charts once again, selling 83,000 copies. Together with their 1st week sales, this totals up to 276,000 copies.

With just 83,000 copies sold, they already outsold the 1st week sales of other popular artists' work like Jin Akanishi's "JAPONICANA" and SCANDAL's compilation album "SCANDAL SHOW".

However, this is nothing new to Ikimonogakari. Their 4th album "Hajimari no Uta" and their compilation album "Ikimonobakari ~Members Best Selection~" managed to top the Oricon weekly album charts 2 weeks in a row as well.

That's not all! The success of this album further raised the sales of their compilation album "Ikimonobakari ~Members Best Selection~", which is released way back in November 2010. Though it's still charting well last week at #51, it managed to rise to #38 this week, bringing the total sales to 1,338,000 copies and back in the Oricon's weekly top 50. With this, the album has charted for 71 weeks, and won't be dropping off anytime soon.

    Oh, AKB has good singers. But there are only like 2-3 among the popular ones... maybe a few more if you're generous with the word "good". The biggest travesty with AKB isn't that they're popular, but that many of their quality singers are reduced to backup and their stages because being a good singer and dancer isn't vote-worthy to the wota.

    That said, Kiyoe is on a whole different level, perhaps almost up to Ayaka, Utada and a few others. But frankly, all of those quality acts consistently sell well, so it's not like they haven't been recognized before.

    Kind of sad to get beaten by a holdover in this industry, but ikimono is definitely strong in terms of album sales! Good job for them! (Buy ya'll should go help those Scandal sales... ^^)
