Charts: KAT-TUN sets 2007 record, L’Arc returns to top

KAT-TUN released their fifth single on November 21, titled “Keep the faith.” The song sold 351,000 copies to rank 1st on the singles chart. It also set the record for highest opening week sales so far this year, which they previously set in June with “Yorokobi no Uta” (300,000 copies).

All five of their singles have been chart-toppers, and all of them exceeded 300,000 in sales during their first week. Only KinKi Kids have accomplished that same feat.

Meanwhile, KAT-TUN’s new DVD, released simultaneously with their single, is their fifth consecutive release to top the music DVD chart. At 175,000 copies sold, it also has set the opening week record for the year.

On the album rankings, L'Arc~en~Ciel secured the #1 spot with “KISS,” moving 221,000 copies. This is their seventh #1 album.
