^ cause it's just people trying to defend her sales. Everyone knows that BL sales are lack lustre, limited or not.

I think it's because they expect that the sales will not be up to her "usual" sales..

Unlike Ayu, who had the tri-release-thing during SURREAL / Duty / some concert, Koda probably doesn't have that large of a hold on people.

Ayu topped each chart that week, I think.. [almost selling out SURREAL, I believe, since that was 300k limited..]

I actually enjoyed mikas new album...even though the songs kinda sound similar. Im glad its doing better than The End. I think b&l will still take the #2 spot. According to the indicators, b&l is leading by approx 5000 copies.

SURREAL wasn't limited to 300k. It was one of those 'limited' editions where avex didn't mention how many they were going to produce type singles. Kind of like EXILE's 'Michi'...

ayu_fan is correct... The first week sales of SURREAL was about 310K, so it couldn't be 300K limited release.

and yes, ayu topped the chart for album, single, and DVD on that week. Oricon did mention about that last year when KAT-TUN did the same thing.

Agree...It seems like everyone is beating Kumi's crap! limited or not! I like there saying "I guess it's time to put a stop to Kumi nasty/unsexy style!!!!"

What I'm tryin' to firgure is what is wrong with selling 500,000? Like many ppl said we're not in the early 2000s anymore. Selling 500,000 (IMO) is like the new one million. So I think many of you should shut up on "Ayu's A BEST 2 selling so low comment. (THIS IS MEANT FOR YOU KUU LOVING FANS)

That's true. But that can be said for nearly all of the #1 releases. (ie: Single/Album X got #1 because no one else was releasing...)

LOL you crack me up. You can't tell people to shut up for stating their opinions. Ican comment on how much these sales are ridiculous, because this is a BEST album for a very popular artist, and these rates are indeed laughable for what this is, with it being buried by almost every new release that pops up, even mediocre ones. However, we can't say the same for you flaming kuu because you just can't, since the rules of this forum shuts you up on that. Score!

I don't understand all the Kumi hate, she's a good artist. It's not her fault avex has been pimping her for every dollar she's worth, and i don't understand why it's bad if someone sells more than Ayu. After all, Ayu's record is virtually unassalaible in terms of a solo female artist.

Anyways, I kind of hope Mika gets #2, i really love her new album. I would've liked to see Kuu get #1 for BUT/Aisho, i think this is her best single since you. Hopefully, Ayu will get above 60k this week and will stay around that level for the next few weeks.

there's no news about A BEST 2 sales on last week.. but Mika didn't get #2. Bounce & Lovers got this position instead. and HOME got 693K copies on the first week...

and you see, the person who got weekly #5 sold around 71K this week, meaning that each A BEST 2 sold less than that..

I wonder how Kumiko's feeling about not hitting #1 with either release (GO FLAVOR OF LIFE!)? Will everything be blamed on the single being "limited"?

Well, if the single hadn't been limited, we could be a lot sure, but it just gets cloudy as to how avex has really distributed these singles, if all copies are already for sale, etc. It would help if anybody who lives in Japan could tell us if the single is indeed getting dust on the stores or if it's just plainly unavailable.
