Popular group Arashi's 41st single "Endless Game" (released on May 29th) sold 478,000 copies in the first week of its release, topping Oricon's weekly ranking.

This makes 30 consecutive chart-topping singles (37th single in total) for the group since "PIKA★★NCHI DOUBLE" (released in February 2004). Topping the chart for 30 consecutive singles has only been achieved by B'zKinKi Kids, and Mr.Children, so Arashi is the fourth to accomplish the feat. Also, their total number of chart topping singles is now tied for second place at 37 with Hamasaki Ayumi. (No.1 is B'z at 46 singles).

"Endless Game" is being used as the theme song for member Sakurai Sho's ongoing Fuji TV drama "Kazoku Game".

「Endless Game」is seriously on repeat when I'm on my computer! Also, Kazoku Game is such a good show, definitely Sakurai-kun's best drama so far in my opinion :)

This is actually my favorite single of theirs in a while. It sold so little first week, though! I got my hopes up with Calling/Breathless. Still, yay!!~
