Oricon news: "Arashi's new single, already this year's 4th best selling single on its release date"
The popular group Arashi's new single "Believe/Kumori nochi, Kaisei" debuted at Oricon Daily Ranking's top spot on March 3rd. It had record sales of 215,000, and only in its release date it made it to 2009's 4th best selling single, behind Akimoto Junko's "Ai no mama de..." (sales to date 336,000 since Jan 2008), Kat-tun's "ONE DROP" (sales to date 315,000 since Feb 2009), Shuchishin's "Yowamushi Santa" (sales to date 231,000 since Dec 2008).
Arashi/Yano Kenta starring Satoshi Ohno's "Believe/Kumori nochi, Kaisei" are both theme songs of the movie "Yatterman" (airing March 7th) starring member Sakurai Sho and TV Asahi Drama "Uta no Oniisan" starring Leader, Ohno Satoshi. Right now, it is only 121,000 copies away from 2009's most popular single Akimoto Junko's "Ai no mama de...," so depending on the sales from now on, it may break "Ai no mama de..."'s record sales and become this year's top selling single in just one week's time.
...and the rest is about another band in the album ranking (´Д｀*
Congratulations!! I predict another prize for being one of the best singles (if not THE best single) for the boys at the end of the year (*ﾟ▽ﾟ)ﾉ
