Angel Beats has 3 songs in the top 20. My Soul Your Beats, Thousand Enemies and Crow Song. That’s impressive. Not quite so much as K-ON holding #1+2, but then again, I think it’s arguable that K-ON! has a larger fanbase to draw from. Plus, Lia was going up against Junsu, Arashi and AKB48. After School Teatime was up against BUMP OF CHICKEN and ℃-ute. There was no way Lia could win, sorry. First week sales for Lia are only 3k less than Tea Time.
But I must say I’m loving the top 5.
AKB48 wota scare me. Buying 1200 copies of a single to try to marry one of the girls… That’s obsessive.
Do any other kpop fans feel awkward watching jpop groups dancing? Probably because kpop groups are essentially slaves to their managment, but they seem a lot more polished and skilful and dancing, especially in groups.
Junsu still at #2. He’s doing so well, but he does have Cassiopiea and Bigeast backing him up. On one hand, this song bores me. On the other… Always keeping the faith. DBSK Hwaiting.
I love this song. It’s easily my fave OP this year. Sorry K-ON!! Piano bias. (I love violins too.)
ARASHI! Mastsujun and Sho, ilu. Arashi are coming out with another single really soon too. So overworked…
S/milage… A band I could never get into. For H!P, I’ve always liked MoMu, AKB48 and Berryz.
