No. 1 spot on the Oricon chart  




Congrats to KAT-TUN for attaining their 18th consecutive No. 1 spot on the Oricon chart
I'm very happy TO THE LIMIT got No. 1 but very disappointed that first day sales is only 60.649 copies...
Obviously, Hyphens didn't do a good job at supporting the guys.

I'm so disappointed that I can't even enjoy the way Tatsuya licks his lips while stealing a look at Junno's dancing butt!

I was a tad dissapointed as well.
Especially since I love each and every songs in it...:)

Oh well, hope the sales will pick up soon~

Very sad... I'm spending my entire morning sulking because folks rave so much about TTL yet, they didn't buy it. *sighs*

hugs and nice seeing you around here still :-)

Exactly this too... the ex-factor... KAT-TUN is already trying to prove their worth without the unnecessary member but if fans won't back them up then their effort is useless... it would seem.

KAT-TUN is underrated... and they've got more talent and variety than most other bands in JE.

But let's hope for the best in the following days XD

TTL is almost exactly like most of KAT-TUN's early debut songs... it's rock and it's good rock, comparable to a Linkin Park song...

if you liked rescue or one drop etc, then TTL is no different.

as for KAT-TUN seeming different to you lately... I don't know~ what's different about them to you?

the only different they look to me is only maturing and working hard to prove their worth.

They REALLY deserve MORE than just 60.649 copies T_T

Go KAT-TUN!!!!! You guys are the best 4ever♥

I know what you mean. T_T

Such an amazing single!! They even organized a special LTD!
Unbelievable that it's their worst first selling day. WTF

Btw, how much PR did they do for TTL? it feels like it was hardly there *wondering*

Yeah maybe PR may have been a cause too because normally they would have been on a number of music shows already... they were on ichiban show earlier but it's just damn sad that the best song in a while is not being liked before it's 'too different'... why do people feel KAT-TUN should be like other johnnys? and how is this song different from their earlier rock songs?

This fandom can be tiring at times~

*sighs*
I just came back and the saw the oricon numbers.
*sighs again*
I don't even have much power left to be shocked or angry. I'm just empty.
(Just watched the ichiban show performance and felt...nothing. Just nothing.)

You know... slowly this becomes just depressing, because no matter how much effort they put in, the still aren't able to move forward, because of the people.
Folks who would like their music because it's rock-ish refuse to listen to them cause they are still Johnny's. People who are into Johnny's often hate them because they are so different from the rainbows colored, sparkling groups like arashi and so on.

And personally I start to hate the world right now -.-

You and I both... like I'm seriously depressed... and this has never happened before....

(Just watched the ichiban show performance and felt...nothing. Just nothing.)
ME TOO!!!!

I watched it and all I could think about was geez... look at them trying their best but can you imagine their pale smiles when they read their 1st day sales number!!!!

Can you imagine that look of disappointment in their eyes... because yes... they are number one but that's only for today... the week has just started.

people hate KAT-TUN for being KAT-TUN... well I love them for being KAT-TUN...

I just wish the few fans they have would show some interest and support!

Well...I'm a loser who has no money...so I didn't snag it right away...but I plan to do an epic splurge and grab a ton of their singles next time I'm paid. I like to support bands that I love, so I try and buy everything I can for KAT-TUN...I'm just a pro at being broke >.> So I'm sorry I disappointed you T~T I fully intend to buy it because I LOVE KAT-TUN and TTL!

To talk about other things mentioned in comments and give my opinions. I do think KAT-TUN is underrated. The have a special uniqueness about them that no other JE band has that I've found. Honestly, KAT-TUN is the only JE band that I really like actually. I find the others all sound the same (sure maybe the voices are different, but there's nothing that defines their own music like with KAT-TUN). As for the ex-member thing, I was honestly NOT a big fan of Jin, and I feel KAT-TUN has really shaped up and grown as a band since he left (this is NOT implying Jin was holding him back on any account btw). I think they have a purer sound now and they harmonize amazingly! And I like where their music styles have expanded to. One of the most amazing things about KAT-TUN is they can do like ANY genre of music, give it a pop twist, and still have it sound FREAKING AMAZING!!!!!!!! So yeah, I feel if someone left/doesn't like the band anymore just for Jin, I don't think they were in to the band to begin with. In my own opinion, to be honest, I don't think Jin is that talented and I think the other boys in KAT-TUN are much more talented.

Sigh...I feel bad now about their sales...I'll go check out CD Japan and do shipping calculations...I think I can afford a couple singles right now...XD Even if it's not day 1 anymore, I can help bump up the weekly sales right?

EDIT: Bought the Limited Edition version (along with Run For You Regular Edition cuz I personally love that song >.> Love Diamond and Sweet Chain too XD). So there! I'm a Day 2/Day 3 (depending on Japan time) buyer...better than my usual 3+ months later buyer-.-' This is the first single I've been presently waiting for since I got into KAT-TUN though. I think I got into them shortly after Birth was released-.-' Snagged Chain of course^^

You bought it!
WOW.. that's great... today's sale was low but it's really the weekly sale that counts (I think). I love sweet chain... it's very mellow and one can sing along~
my favourite on CHAIN is still 'One Day'... that song is just really good XD

I am still amazed that people fail to understand that it's KAT-TUN's uniqueness that makes them amazing.... it's the very fact that they are different from other JE that makes their music even more precious... I'm happy they don't go around like the 'perfect' idol group singing about rainbows and unicorns and I do believe that the five now are freaking amazing and are perfect.... I think KAT-TUN is only now complete and if folks want to dwell in the past, then they can stay there...

But as Junno always says, what makes KAT-TUN, KAT-TUN is because they always put their 'KAT-TUN-ness' in every song... so they are not just another JE group who sound annoying alike.

KT is willing to try variety... and I admire this part of them.. not a afraid to try new things and that makes them even more precious~

And to me... maybe Jin was usual in the earlier songs... but solo, I really don't think the dude has got any talent.... and his fanbase remains a mystery to me but I'm happy he was no longer in KT by the time I found fandom.

Anyway, congrats on your first purchase... I remember the wonderful feeling of buying my first KT cd/dvd... it's an unforgettable feeling... holding something original from them!

>_< somehow I feel indirectly guilty about their low sales T.T I really wished i could've bought the single and maybe I will once i have the money...really i think this is one of their better singles so i hope the numbers pick up soon.

But either way I'm happy enough that they still managed to claim the #1 spot >w< (considering all the tough competitors they were up against that time x_x)

Ooh and I love the gif btw! *w*

Don't tell me you haven't bought the single yet because you're hoping that Junno will really spank you!!!!!

Pan-chan, you're quite pervy, don't you think?!

Well I really hope sales pick up by the end of the week.... this single deserves our penny XD

and yeah, who can resist not staring at Uepi licking his lips for Junno >.

Abit sad but still congratulate them on being No.1 on the Oricon chart :). Dont know why ppl feel different abt TTL but since the 1st time i listened to it "It's KAT-TUN" was what i'd thought. And every time they challenge new style, i always think they are fresher, newer and much more pro :x. Well, 60k is not mean their end so don't be sad :) I think their sale ll be high soon in the end! They sure ll gain more achievements, of couse there ll have many obstacles on their way, but we believe in em, ne~~ ^^.
P/S: I very love TTL, kept replaying the music station vid since i downloaded and alrd can't wait for their next year concert X333

Thank you very much!

Sometimes I wonder if people are paying the same attention to the KAT-TUN we are watching... because they say the weirdest things~

well the 60K is just for the first day so I guess it all comes down to the weekly sale but I was just shocked at how low it still was when everyone was raving about how great this single is....it's disappointing knowing that all that was pure talk and no action.

I love TTL so much... the first few seconds I heard it on Hang Out... I fell in love with the song... This song is Soooo KAT-TUN, so I really can't understand why folks keep saying KAT-TUN has changed..... as in changed for the worse

it's just... just frustrating at times~

Still waiting for my TTL DVD to arrive x_x *kicks yesasia*

Sometimes I wonder if the fandom itself is the problem (re: low sales). For example, I saw that there was a post on one of the communities which had uploaded the PV and Making Of like... the day after it was released?? Sharing is great but I guess it's a double-edged sword.

It might also have something to do with the fact that TTL is kind of an 'in-between' song. I.e. it's not all 'Wiggles' or 'High5' like some of the other JE songs, but neither is it as much of a rock song as some of KAT-TUN's earlier works (e.g. LIPS, Face Down, even Change Ur World has solid drumming and a rock-ish intro though overall it's quite dance-y.) :/ I guess the general trend over the past couple of years is more dance-pop... bleh. (While I am definitely not a fan of A, his voice - at least back in QoP concert or something - was probably more suited to rock songs than the other members'.) Ah I went totally off-topic.

Anyway, does anyone know how the Oricon sales are calculated? I.e. do they include the Limited Editions (and the special one which could only be delivered)? *newish to the fandom and don't know anything about this stuff* >_< Happy they beat Girls' Generation for first day sales though (not that I have anything against them).
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on July 1st, 2012 01:36 am (UTC)
No. 1 spot on the Oricon chart
Yeah... the limited edition as well as the special edition will be included in the final sales.
so far, they have past the 10K mark... so that's decent.

From what I've read from folks who are currently in Japan... it's the lack of promotion of TTL that's causing the low sales.... and it's not that TTL isn't a good song, but it's just that it doesn't' have that karaoke vibes... and karaoke is a big part of Japan's culture.

but TTL is great and is quite solid and perfect with the 5 rapping...

I hope you get your copies soon XD
