[trans] Tohoshinki, Setting a new record in the history of the Japanese Oricon Charts, 1st place for 7 times on the DVD Charts
Tohoshinki has once again written a new page in history in Japan.
Tohoshinki’s live DVD “Tohoshinki Live Tour 2014 Tree”, which was released on 27 August in Japan, recorded sales of 104,000 copies in its first week, and in the Oricon Weekly DVD Combined Overall Charts as of 3 September (period of counting: 25 August to 31 August), they achieved the remarkable feat of obtaining 1st place.
In this way, Tohoshinki has won a total of 7 1st places in the Oricon Weekly DVD Combined Overall Charts, and of course they have broken the record of having the most number of #1s in the history of the Oricon charts for foreign singers, which they previously set themselves, and even went to the extent of setting a new record of obtaining consecutive #1s for 5 pieces of work, in respect of being the foreign singers who have the most number of consecutive #1s. True to their name as the Tohoshinki who receives love in Japan as artistes at the top, they have once again proven their status.
In addition, in the “Overall Music DVD-BD Charts” which combines the sales of DVD and Blu-Ray Disc sales and totals the ranking, Tohoshinki recorded 1st place in weekly sales, and therefore also set the record for being the first foreign singers in history to break the 2 million sales barrier from the accumulated sales of their DVDs and Blu-ray Discs, also confirming their influence and never-changing popularity.
