I don't even think A BEST 3 would sell over 100k because it would be full of songs nobody from the general public has heard and cared about so what would be the point?

I'm happy she managed to sell over 30k for the first week, go Ayu

Ayu sings her old hits so often that A Best 3 might not have any power anymore.

OH well Still hoping for 40k overall. Which is more than i could say about kumi's summer of love/album.

I'm positively surprised by these sales, actually. I think with the upcoming a-nation performances and the billboard promotion it is getting it has a real chance of tieing A ONE sales or at least getting very close.

I wish we knew how much A ONE sold on a day-to-day basis - especially the first day of the second week. Based on the positions this EP seems to have smaller drops between days. Which is great. A ONE already had a lot more longevity than Colours. That's the best sign of the public buying more records as opposed to hardcore fans, who will almost always buy right when it's out.

Agree on this. I am not sure when is the best time for her to release another best album but I am sure it's not 2015 and probably not next year as well.

Thanks for the update. Still happy for a #2!

Well, sure, but how many rolls of toilet paper would avex have to produce for that campaign? Let's be real here lol. Avex's idea of promotion these days is sidewalk chalk, latte foam designs, and a live performance on a late night 3 a.m. infomercial for bowel regularity.

I don't listen to DCT but still the least people can do instead of bashing them for denying sixxxxxx #1 is to give them respect as they've been around for a really long time in the industry

Then again , this's not the 1st time I've seen petty/insensitive behaviour that have taken place . It seems that on here there's always a certain person (if not a group of people probably ?) that's always picking on artistes that have denied Ayu's past releases in not getting #1

For me I listen to a wide variety of artistes so for some artistes that 'beat' Ayu to get #1 in the past , I do feel that they deserve it especially if they don't have a single #1 in their discography prior to them finally getting 1 in their entire career

That said , sixxxxxx put up a good fight . I honestly thought it had a shot in #1 but end of the day , it did well considering solo artistes these days can't sell well

OT af but with DCT's chart run I really hope Sandaime can keep the yearly #1 I would be bitter AF if they wouldn't (I'm ldh-trash sorry lol) Overall I think sixxxxxx's sales are ok. The songs are great so whatever..

Comparison with other female solo artists that are doing better in this oricon year:

Namie Amuro - _genic 227,962 debut: 1995
Superfly - White 129,091 debut: 2007
Taylor Swift 1989 90,555
JUJU - Request II 77,836 (COVER ALBUM) debut: 2004
Nishino Kana - with Love 75,720 (in 2015, total: 257,032) debut: 2008
miwa - ONENESS 70,246 debut: 2010
Ayaka - Rainbow Road 65,216 debut: 2006
May J. - May J. W Best -Original & Covers- 61,988 (BEST-OF ALBUM) debut: 2006
Ohara Sakurako - Happy 52,421 debut: 2013

Ayumi Hamasaki - A One 52,192 debut: 1998

Koda Kumi - Walk of my Life 50,013 debut: 2000

sixxxxxx's first week sales are just 3,5k lower than A One's first week sales. And A One's total sales are just 1k lower than Colours' total sales. Considering sixxxxxx is only a mini album, it is doing well. Beside Namie and Superfly, no other female solo artist managed to sell 100,000 this year. This shows how everything in the market has changed. However, Ayu is not doing great, but not bad either - currently, she is number 10 (with A One) of female solo artists in this oricon year. If you combine the sales from A One and sixxxxxx, she is number 4. There are 3,5 months left until the oricon year ends - let's see, which other female solo artists will release an album.

Sales are not bad at all comparing to A ONE and considering it's a mini-album. Sure it sucks to lose the #1 on the very last day, but hopefully this mini can have some of the longevity A ONE had

I sure hope that doesn't happen... I love seeing 3JSB strong at #1

Considering sixxxxxx is a mini album versus DCT's best of album, I am satisfied with her being #2 honestly.

Gosh I remember when NEXT LEVEL was released and DCT had a best/original album combo released the week before and people were even wary then. But I think Ayu outsold them by 100k on her debut week. DCT did end up selling 300k more overall though.

Songs like Blue Bird, Love song, Virgin Road, crossroad, Rule, Days would all be on A Best 3, so, she still has prenty of hits to milk.

A BEST 2 only included pre-Secret stuff, so if she includes Secret era onwards it'd be even better. A COMPLETE did include Secret, but it's a single best, and ayu includes album tracks on her regular best's, so I think she does a good amount of hits to include She seems to be reconnecting to her Japanese audience better this year, so if they work on her image (?) well on the next two years, we could have A BEST 3 by her 20th and I'd be pretty much satisfied with it

During its release, it was announced A Best 2 would cover from evolution single to Bold & Delicious single, so even (miss)understood album tracks may be on A Best 3...
