The first one where EXILE is #1 and ayu is #2 etc. is the best selling list of the year.

Actually, it looks like Ayu sold less than all of the music acts on that list, however, she generated the second most income or something... (Ithink sales in 10000s are on the right and earnings in million/billion yen on the left Can anyone who knows japanese a little better help out?

lol at Exile's total. Good for everyone else on the list except Kobukuro. I don't dislike them, but I find them to be very overrated.

I would say that to us it was a slow release year because of a lack of new material but in terms of actual releases this list includes the release of: Guilty, Mirrorcle World, 2 Remix albums, CDL 08/09, Arena Tour '07 and A-Complete. As far as I can tell, the only other artist in the top 5 to release that many things this year is Exile.

That's correct. She actually sold less than all the artists on the list comparing singles and albums but she released more products than they did. Releasing 2 concert dvds I'm sure is the only thing that ultimately put her ahead of Namie since concert dvds are the most expensive of the products to buy and still Namie is only very slightly behind in total sales and did better in the amount of units sold.

I wouldn't really say that since this measures who had the highest sales, not who had the highest profits. (the two are actually different^_^) I would say that Namie was Avex's most profitable female this year (and probably easily so).

She sold more total units than Ayu and just barely is behind her in total sales with only 3 releases (Play Tour DVD, Best Fiction, 60s70s80s) compared to Ayumi's 7 releases (Guilty, A Complete, 2 remix albums, Mirrorcle World, 2 concert dvds). All of those things required promotional expenses from Avex and really the only one of the things on Namie's list that much promo expenditure would need to be done is Best Fiction since 60s70s80s bill was pretty much footed by Vidal Sassoon. So yeah, actually I would say that Namie was quite easily the best money maker for Avex this year when you take those factors into account.

Watch Avex come up with A Ultimate or something.
But still ayu gave them more profit than namie.
And the thing about the compilation albums can be said about other 3 from the list.
EXILE released 3 compilations, B'z released 2 and ayu and namie only 1.
Excluding those compilations non of them would be that high =P

(And for the record AC sold better than EXILE ENTERTAINMENT BEST)..
