2012 again - #7 34k
2013 LOVE again - #1 53k
2014 Colours - #5 39k
2015 A ONE - #4 35k
2015 sixxxxxx - ?? ~30k

She's had only one #1 release in 4 years, and her last compilation, A SUMMER BEST, sold 15k less the first week than the studio album released that same year, which had never happened for Ayu.

I'm pretty confident that sixxxxxx would be the last #1, unless Ayu did a cover album that blew up like JUJU or BENI. But with her sales continuing to fall, and this current week being one of the historically lowest ever in traditional sales for Japan, I truly doubt there will be another #1... even if it were A BEST 3 or A COMPLETE 2.
A Summer Best (just as A Ballads) wasn't a best-of album for me, it was just a summer playlist of Ayu songs... a real best-of album ist just different, it includes all the singles of an era. I hope we will see a real best-of album in the near future. Well... a studio album in April, a mini album in August, and a best-of album in December would be crazy. Maybe they will wait until 20th anniversary in 2018. However, they released A Best 2 in 2007, and A Complete in 2010 after only three years and the concept worked well. So its not too late for A Best 3 in 2015, and A Complete 2 in 2018.

^ A COMPLETE came out in 2008, one year after A BEST 2. To me it was a disaster, cause I think A COMPLETE would have sold much more if it were released some years later...

Haha, you're right, I messed up the dates. Still impressive that both best-of albums (seeing A Best 2 as one) sold that much, even though fans bought a lot of the songs 2x.

It was risky, it also could sell less because ayu started to decrease more in sales on that time.

A COMPLETE could sell almost 300,000 than the original album (GUILTY) that was released before that so it worked perfectly.
If they would wait it might have done 200,000-300,000 over NEXT LEVEL's sales, or worse, so they jumped on the last "momentum".

A year before that both A BEST 2 sold over 700,000 which was pretty amazing.
I remember some people trolled and said that A BEST 2 flopped, but releasing 2 BESTs on the same date for that time and both sold over 700,000 together was a great fit.

DCT - 10,398

OH NO. OH NO!!!

I feared this could happen...AND IT DID!!!!! :O

My goodness...Ayu may have lost her chances of a #1. IN THE LAST DAY!!!!! HOW IN THE WORLD SHE COULD MESS IT UP IN THE LAST POSSIBLE DAY!?!?!?!?!?

I...I can't believe this...how????? This has got to be impossible! Another Seahawks-Patriots end-of-Super Bowl moment...?

Seriously, things have GOT to change. I don't think Avex wasn't aware at this. This could end up going too close to call! :O

DCT: 4,221 + 3,500* + 3,500* + 3,124 + 2,984 + 4,229 + 10,398 = 31,956
(* = estimated)

Ayu: 17,315 + 5,232 + 2,809 + 2,097 + 1,749 + 1,500* = 30,702
(* = estimated)

She probably lost 1.

As expected SONGS didn't give her any boost as well. TV performances rarely do.

Who the hell watches TV nowadays...?! It's funny to see people blaming low sales due to lack of TV PROMOTION. You make your music available and wide spread on Youtube, that's promotion! If people don't like what they heard on the internet, no one will waste their money to buy the album...

Ninki for next week:

Albums:

01 44.19 BRAHMAN - Jinmiraisai
02 17.28 Crazy Ken Band - Mou Sukkari Are Nandayone
03 13.61 moumoon - It's Our Time
04 11.36 WHITE JAM - Tokidoki Hero
05 11.30 Vintage Trouble - Kareinaru Trouble

It's so funny. Brahman sold 23k with last album in 2013. So if sixxxxxx would have been released a week later...

But, for A One, it was the same story.

oh crap I just checked out the sales, i'm shocked at DCTs 10k... The worst thing is that she fell to #6, I think she could easily guarantee the #1 if she had maintained her #3

Her episode of SONGS received the lowest rating out of other featured artists. Besides, it's not designed to promote her album anyway. Ayu lost her streak like many years ago so we shouldn't be surprised of the rank, should we?

I agree on that partly. But in reality, TV is still the media with highest penetration and may push influence. While probably younger people relies more on the Internet, Promotion on TV do get the word out so people will be curious enough (or maybe got sick & tired enough) to check out that artist's Youtube pages etc. And of course, TV promotion doesn't only mean TV performances (esp just 1 midnight performance), but also things like endorsements in drama Theme Songs, starring in commercials, getting music videos out, etc. If TV is no longer working, then no celebs would be still trying to get on TV.

Nonetheless, the best promotion is always a 360 where you go all out to TV, Internet and printed media... and somehow I think Avex is not investing that kind of promotion on Ayu anymore


How can DCT suddenly get 10,000 copies sold !! oh well... that's something Avex should learn next time

Ouch, it's so near to get her back to the long lost weekly #1... Disappointed though, I hope sixxxxxx at least let her gain back some Japanese market/fans.

TV is still very big in Japan, you have no idea what you're talking about.
