Oricon Top 30 Charts 2010 – Week 3

20 01 2010

We’re into week 3 of the Oricon Charts for 2010. AKB48 continue to do well and are still in the Top 30 with River. It’s been 13 weeks now for them and with their new single coming out next month it bodes well for the idol group. There’s a lot of fans who are looking forward to their chart battle with Morning Musume on the 17/2/10 – myself included!

After topping the charts last week, Ayu drops out of the Top 10 to no.13 with You Were…/BALLAD. Not one of her strongest singles and maybe that shows with the steep drop this week.  Mari Yaguchi comes in at no.2 with her Quiz Hexagon related single Kaze wo Sagashite. I’m a little bit non-plussed about this song, I mean it’s OK and it’s certainly better than her last single which was more about Mari shouting than anything else. For her next single I would really like her to sing a proper pop song.

Abe Mao’s song at no.12 – Itsu no Hi Mo caught my attention this week. I like the feel of that song a lot. At no.1 is Nana Mizuki with Phantom Minds who seems to be going from strength to strength. I noticed last year that her popularity was gaining pace. It’s a great song which deserves to be at the top.

Here’s the chart rundown in full:

30 AKB48 – River
29 Ken Aoto – Sake Goyomi
28 Kana Nishino – Dear… / MAYBE
27 Hilcrhyme – Shunkashuutou

22 ARASHI – My Girl
21 Aobozu – Dengon
20 Gackt – Stay The Ride Alive
19 LANDS – Bandage
18 Ikimono Gakari – YELL / Joyful
17 Saburo Kitajima – Fuufu Isshou
16 °C-ute – SHOCK!
15 9mm Parabellum Bullet – Inochi no Zenmai
14 Fuyumi Sakamoto – Mata Kimi ni Koishiteru / Asia no Kaizoku

Previously I’ve been posting the CDTV Top 30 video countdown up on my blog but I’ve had enough of it as it’s so different from the Oricon charts with too much enka for my liking so I’ve decided to put up the fan-made RASC Top 20 video instead. It’s got a good selection of songs.





CDTV Top 30 Charts – 21/11/09

24 11 2009

This week’s CDTV charts has now appeared on Youtube. This month has been really good for songs so I’m hoping that trend continues into December.  First time I’ve seen this new idol group at no.18 called Momoiro Clover though they have released a single over the Summer. The group is associated with the Stardust Promotion Agency and they have a large stable of 8 – 18 year old girls in their “3B Junior” section. I’ll have to check out their previous single and their latest one properly.

Other songs that caught my eye was Double’s duet with Shota Shimizu, Maaya Sakamoto, Yusuke, Aya Kamiki with her Kamen Rider W theme, Exile and the no.1 song by Arashi. Kiyoshi Hikawa is back with another song at no.10 and I just find him annoying. His last song got on my nerves so much.
