Mr. Children's two best-of album sells over 1.44 million copies


Popular rock band Mr. Children released two best-of albums for their 20th anniversary on May 10th. The albums have been met with great response as 'Mr.Children 2005-2010 <macro>' sold 732,000 copies and 'Mr.Children 2001-2005 <micro>' sold 716,000 copies for the first week of sales, and clinched 1st and 2nd place on the Oricon Weekly Album Ranking Chart for the week of May 21st.

They sold over 1,147,000 in total for the two albums. Along with this successe, their previous best-of albums 'Mr. Children 1992-1995' and 'Mr. Children 1996-2000'(released 2001) also rose in ranking, with the former ranking #9 (from #55 of last week), and the latter ranking #12 (from #59 of last week).

This marked the a new record, as they've become the first artist more than 20 years into their debut to monopolize 1st and 2nd place. Hotei Tomoyasu had kept the record previously as he achieved 1st and 2nd place on the album ranking with his two best-of albums after 12 years and 11 months since his debut.

Additionally, Mr.Children tied the record with TMN and Porno Graffitti for topping 1st and 2nd place with best-of albums for the second time after their previous best-of albums.

Congratulations to Mr.Children!
