C-ute’s 14th single, Aitai Lonely Christmas, has sold 23,682 copies in it’s first week of sales – an improvement over their last two singles. I think the single is alright, you can see for yourself by watching the PV on the right! It ranked at #6 in the Oricon charts.

Morning Musume’s 42nd single, Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai, has ranked at #5 in the Oricon Weekly Charts with sales of 36,169. These sales aren’t too awful, they could be better though it’s roughly the same as Kimagure Princess’s first week.
In non-Hello! Project news, I was quite surprised to see that BoA’s latest album, IDENTITY, only charted at #4 in it’s first week sales of 37,606. She’s ranked beneath Koda Kumi’s new album which is in it’s 2nd week, is BoA’s popularity really waning that much?

AKB48 have done it again, the first day sales for their newest single, Iiwake Maybe is 57,456 and it’s ranked at #1 around 20,000 copies above SMAP! That’s some pretty impressive figures!
I don’t really understand the great attraction of the single as it sounds like just about everything else they’ve released lately, it’s a fairly decent single overall and I like the c/w better!
This could potentially be AKB48’s first weekly #1!

Morning Musume’s 40th single Nanchatte Renai #12 in the Oricon Weekly Charts with sales of 11,271 – the highest second week sales since 女子かしまし物語 (Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari) in 2004!
This brings Nanchatte Renai’s total sales figures to 66,244 and it charted at #10 today so it’s most likely gonna sell a little bit more in it’s 3rd week! Let’s hope for 70,000!! Shows what some promotion can achieve eh?

Morning Musume’s 40th single, Nanchatte Renai, has charted at #2 this week with sales of 54,973 – their best first week since Iroppoi Jirettai in 2005! Let’s hope they reach at least 60,000!
In it’s first two days of sales Morning Musume’s 40th single, Nanchatte Renai, has sold 34,247 copies and charted at No.2 both days just behind Hamasaki Ayumi, today only about 2,000 copies behind!
Let’s hope they stay at No.2 for the rest of the week – there’s a decent ammount of promotion going on, maybe this will top Kanashimi Twilight…?
