KAT-TUN’s third album, “KAT-TUN III -QUEEN OF PIRATES-,” came out last week and sold 240,000 copies, firmly landing the group at the top of the charts. They now have reached 10 consecutive number-ones (counting singles and albums), making them the 4th group to do so after Hikaru Genji, KinKi Kids, and NEWS.
Another big release this past week was the first soundtrack for the “Macross Frontier” anime series, with music done by top composer Yoko Kanno. It sold nearly 72,000 copies to rank #3, becoming the first anime soundtrack album to enter the top three since “The End of Evangelion” in 1997.
