Charts: AKB48, Lady Gaga, GLAY

Idol group AKB48 took #1 on the sales charts this week, as they set a new all-time record for highest first-week sales at more than 1.33 million copies. “Everyday, Kachusha” also set the record for highest first-day sales (942,475) and went on to reach the 1 million mark in its second day in stores.

This week’s top ten consisted almost entirely of new releases, but one of the more notable ones was “Maru Maru Mori Mori!” at #3.
