She really deserves to be on higher position. But since she didn't promote any new material (till this point), it is somewhat satisfactory.

lol, I was just thinking "not bad for 0 releases the entire year"

A COMPLETE is pretty high up, I would have expected to see A BEST instead.

Finally is a physical-only release thus far. only some singles were released to promote some CMs. I guess only Finally and the Body Feels EXIT remake.

and yeah, A COMPLETE (and also A BEST) are almost always discounted.

Even if they have a low price, if people didn't care about Ayu and her music anymore (as some people claim) they wouldn't be charting and especially at such a good position

Normal price for it is 2700yen, but I imagine the sale price is like 900yen or something when it is discounted. Still, it's rather neat that it charts so high next to some recent releases.

TBH 900yen is near $8 which is nearly around the normal price for an album everywhere else in the world. Happy to see it chart so high. A lot of compilation albums are in top 100 I assume most of them were discounted at least at some point.

It's nice to see but yeah. A Complete usually goes on sale for 900 yen periodically. It's such a great bargain to get such a large amount of hit songs for that price. It usually jumps to the top 10 on itunes for a few days and then disappears when this happens. So it probably wouldn't be there if it wasn't for the discounts.
I believe Ayu's music from that time period will always sell for decades to come since they have become classic.

Looking at the charts, a lot of people with new releases who made it to top 100 are doing a lot worse than ayu (SMAP!, Koda Kumi, miwa, BIG BANG, ayaka, X JAPAN, DREAMS COME TRUE and Mika Nakashima). She is doing amazingly well considering everything!

^X JAPAN didn't have a new release since over 20 years now. By just releasing three digital singles a few years back and a documentary, they are doing very well.
Considering their general popularity or at least admiration within the public, I actually think they are doing way better than Ayu.

My perception was they were doing better than her as well. I dont really follow them, but there were quiet a few articles about them having concerts across the globe, so I assumed they released something along the way!

^I wished they did! lol The new album was supposed to be released like two years ago. Yoshiki said it will come this fall, but at this point even he is joking that the fans won't believe they will release anything before it actually is released.
There will be a collaboration with HYDE soon though, some anime opening.
