    WHAT?! Awwww, nooo way. Well, I guess Yamapi's single wasn't that good :/ But I can't believe how popular AKB is getting.

    I love Yamapi's song..!! :D I'm really happy that he is Top 3 of best sales... ^^ Good for him...<3<3<3

    well I'm not a jpop fun but I could tell you that Yamapi's song is realy good! much better than the usual awkward jpop songs. With this song at least he got a new fun, it's me :D

    Ugh this is what happens when you put 5 other versions of the out for sale at convenience stores that have prettier covers and make them not count in the oricon. Well the song is okay but it wouldve been better if it was Adamas or Dreamer. Still I guess 2nd place is still okay. Even Namie Amuro had her share of 2nds and 3rd but shes still the Queen Namie. There's still the weekly ranking..

    二人共超凄い、けど麻友の方は山下よりwww both are good but mayuyu is better^^

    I actually liked Ai Texas~ Of course, maybe Johnny might reconsider letting YamaPi go solo and put him back in NEWS ♥ (That's not going to happen...)

    not surprising to me.. tomo chan really disappointed me with his new single.. and AKB got lots male supports from various ages.. so.. i accept this result

    If it werent for Saikou no Jinsei, I bet Dreamer would have been the single.. clearly much better song. Well, the online and overseas purchases will count on the weekly so maybe it will still be ok.

    That's kinda surprising that Yamapi lost
