"I can't help but wonder what the Japanese reaction to Keanu Reeves' 47 Ronin will be. A lot of people went and saw it, with the film generating over $1 million at the box office on opening weekend, but i can't imagine it hanging on for very long. The film debuts in the States on Christmas Day, and I suspect that we'll eat it up here in America.
Meanwhile, with Christmas fast approaching, the holiday and sentimental songs are taking full ownership of the Oricon charts. Because, who doesn't want to hear about getting hugged or what St. Nick might bring down the chimney?"
