Top 30 Oricon Charts – Week 18

5 05 2010

It’s no surprise considering how popular the anime K-ON is right now across the globe that the OP and ED themes for the 2nd season that’s airing right now in Japan occupy the top 2 position in this week’s new Oricon Charts. The OP song GO! GO! MANIAC is OK but it goes way too fast for my liking so I prefer the ED tune Listen!! instead. There are 6 new entries in the Top 10. After a couple of lacklustre single releases it’s nice to see °C-ute come back with a good tune. Hilcrhyme who are at no.6 have a very good song in Daijoubu. Two other anime related songs also entered the Top 10 namely Yukari Tamura with the OP to the anime B Gata H Kei at no.7 and Shoko Nakagawa with Ray Of Light at no.9 with the 5th ED song to Fullmetal Alchemist. For AKB48 fans, last week’s new entry by No Sleeves is out of the Top 30 altogether.
