Oricon Top 30 Charts – Week 21

26 05 2010

Arashi bulldoze their way into the no.1 position in the new Oricon charts and sell a very impressive 543,269 copies of their new single Monster. That’s a 1000 more copies than what they sold in the first week with Troublemaker. It’s an OK song. I’d rather have seen Kana Nishino in the top spot with Aitakute Aitakute entering at no.2. She really has released some excellent songs during the past year.

There was only 4 new entries in the Top 10 this week. The other 2 new entries were 2 cool rock songs in F.T Island’s Flower Rock and TETSU69 with Roulette. There was a surprising jump up 15 places from DOES with Bakuchi Dancer which re-entered the Top 10 at no.7. AVEX’s new idol group Tokyo Girls Style released yet another new single so soon with Onnaji Kimochi. It didn’t improve their lowly chart position and it only got to no.30. Their last single Kirari was so much better than this bog-standard idol song.
