12 works by popular idol group AKB48 have simultaneously ranked on Oricon's latest 'TOP 100' album chart for the week of January 7th .

Until now, the best record for the "number of albums ranked simultaneously on the TOP 100", for a female group, was 5 works. Both Candies (in 1978) and KARA (in 2011) achieved that record.

However, to have over 10 works simultaneously ranked on the 'TOP 100' f0r any female artists, including solo artists, has only been accomplished by Misora Hibari (12 albums) and Matsuda Seiko (13 albums). Thus, AKB48 is but the 3rd female artist to obtain this achievement in Oricon's 46-year ranking history.

The 12 works include 11 albums from their "studio recordings collection" released on New Year's day. 19 albums in total were released, (the release day of『Team 4 1st Stage「Boku no Taiyou」』has been postponed to 1/22) which included recordings of the set lists from their theater performances. The 12th work is their latest album "1830m", released in August 2012.

Below find a list of the titles of the 12 works and their ranking:


No.31『Team B 3rd Stage「Pajama Drive」』
No.43『Team K 4th Stage「Saishuu Bell ga Naru」』
No.46『Team A 4th stage「Tadaima Renaichuu」』
No.58『Himawari-gumi 2nd Stage「Yume wo Shinaseru Wake ni Ikanai」』
