    i doubt anyone actually READS... but eh.. the numbers in brackets are the TOTAL sales the artiste(s) have made so far. This usually appears when the the singles/albums are already released some time / long time ago.

    I wanna know where u look up weekend sales for top 100 if there is even such a thing!!

  • Reply by Traditionally VIP  

    Weekend sales...? What do you mean? Weekly sales? (Tuesdays to Tuesdays) or really just the weekends sales (Friday to Sunday)? For weekly top 100, it's not possible. Oricon does reveal the weekly top 50, but for top 100, you have to pay =X For weekends sales, Oricon doesn't do such a thing, but you can track through the daily charts, which reveals the top 30 (but only top 3 have sales information).

    Maybe I'm being paranoid, but for anyone who doesn't really understand what the sales in brackets means, please voice out =D

  • Reply by playgone  

    Those are overall sale (ie sales made not just in that month)

  • Reply by Traditionally VIP  

    Yeah I thought it should be easy to infer, but many people seems to be like "phew... lucky XYZ made it" even though XYZ already made that release long ago and sold a lot...

    This will be the template I'll be working with for every month, so if it isn't comprehensive, I want to make sure it is.

    LOL i didn't even realize its YOU who did that :p

    I get the numbers in brackets,,, but there will always be people who don't get it. maybe as a suggestion, you can put footnote at the bottom of your article? ^^
