Charts: UVERworld’s first #1

Rock band UVERworld has finally achieved their first #1 single with “Hakanakumo Towa no Kanashi.” Currently used as the theme song for “Mobile Suit Gundam 00,” the single sold 119,000 copies to easily take the top of the charts. At 71,000 copies, “Dream Fighter” by the popular trio Perfume ranked 2nd. Much further behind were the newest releases from GIRL NEXT DOOR (#3), Idoling!!! (#5), Ging Nang Boyz (#7), and ALI PROJECT (#9).

Meanwhile, boy band NEWS released their third album, “color.” With 180,000 in sales, they extended their streak of having all of their singles and albums debut at #1.

Notably, the band flumpool took #2 with their album “Unreal,” selling 111,000 copies. The group barely made their major label debut last month with a digital single, and now they have the best opening week for a debut album this year.

American band Guns N’ Roses were #3 on the album charts. Also in the top ten were Noriyuki Makihara (#5), capsule (#6), and CHEMISTRY (#7).
