You're such a little black raincloud, you know that? O_o Sale figures mean **** to me. Flat out, they mean absolute **** to me. The fact that something can reach and maintain a top ten position is THE most important thing to me. Dir en grey, another band I love, never really has high sales at all, but they've maintained top ten positions for a few of their recent releases, and that makes me proud of them. I couldn't give a crap less how much they sell.

It IS impressive that she's in the top 10 still regardless of what she sells. If she sold 10 copies and is still in the top 10, it's impressive LOL.

Wow, maybe calm a little bit down?

Besides, we can all like what we want, but how is prefering sales over positions being negative? I'd rather have an artist I support be no. 7 with 23k sales in a strong week than no. 1 with 20k sales. O.o

How high something charts really only tells you how lucky/carefully planned a certain release is. Except when talking about certain groups like Mr. Children
and Arashi.

Chill. No need to get upset. What means little to you means a lot to avex and Ayu Dir en grey is an amazing example of how little the position actually means. The position is really a very relative thing that ultimately means nothing.

Exactly. The high position can be achieved thru careful planning more than anything else now days and Ayu's singles have pretty much proven that during the last few years (and not only hers ofc).

I don't need to calm down, because I'm not upset O_o Cursing =/= bad temper, you know.

I said what I said because there are some people who get all in a tizzy about sales figures, and I think that's a bit silly. I don't know why it's being blown out of proportion, but I guess I should have expressed more "lulz" and less "lol get over it" in my initial post. Oops. Oh well.

Yay #5 again \o/

The internet is the internet though, and everything will always be misunderstood. Go go!

I do agree about the people panicking. I care about sales and I'm interested in them, but if Ayu sells 100k for her next album I won't cry and ***** about it. I just like discussing it : P

It's very obvious Ayu isn't too concerned with sales, there's a lot of freedom when you're not expected to sell above and beyond anymore. Imagine the day Arashi sells the amount Ayu does.

Well it's doing an impressive job as far as charting goes, but sales not as much . It surprises me to hear that a lot of people are pretty sure it won't make it to 300k...In fact, I was hoping for at least 300k, but it certainly doesn't look that way so far.
