Arashi’s 26th single [Ashita no Kioku/Crazy Moon~Kimi wa Muteki~] has achieved sales of 502,487 exact, to claim the top single ranking in the 6/8 week, clinching the top 1st week sales in 2009.
Also, passing the 500,000 mark in the 1st week, along with their previous single Believe/Kumori Nochi, Kaisei (released march 2009) with sales of 501988 exact, this is the 2nd consecutive achievement.
The last time 2 singles from the same artist crossed the 500,000 1st week sales mark consecutively was Kuwata Keisuke’s “Naminori Johnny” released in July 2001 and “Shiroi Koibito Tachi” released in October 2001, and it has been 7 years and 7 months since such an achievement was made.
Woohoo! Congratulations! ^__^
