Kis-My-Ft2 tops Oricon's Singles, Album, and DVD chart


Kis-My-Ft2 three simultaneous releases dominated the Oricon Weekly Charts.

Their ' 7th single KiSuUMaI ~KISS YOUR MIND~ /S.O.S (Smile On Smile), new album "Good Ikuze!", and new DVD YOSHIO -NEW MEMBER- were all released simultaneously on March and topped Oricon's weekly single ranking for single, album, DVD ranking (overall). The sales for the first week were 214,000 copies (single), 222,000 copies (album), and 126,000 copies (DVD) respectively.

It's been the first time in 7 years for one artist to have first place on the single, album, and DVD weekly charts simultaneously. In Oricon's history, they're only the 3rd artist to accomplish it after Hamasaki Ayumi (in October 2000), and KAT-TUN (in April 2006).

KiSuUMaI ~KISS YOUR MIND~ /S.O.S (Smile On Smile) is the 7th consecutive single for the group to top the single ranking since their debut single "Everybody Go" (released in August 2011), and "Good Ikuze!" is 2nd consecutive album since their 1st album "Kis-My-1st" (released in May 2012). Also, "YOSHIO -NEW MEMBER-" is the 2nd consecutive (and 3rd in total), DVD to top the DVD overall ranking.

Member Kitayama Hiromitsu commented, "I felt the great joy of being able to top the charts with the works that we sincerely worked on, and it also made me realize once again that Kisumai could exist because of the fans."

Fellow member Fujigaya Taisuke also left a comment, "I feel that we are making great history together with our fans. I strongly wish that we will be able to spend unforgettable times more with them by challenging to make many other histories together, and meeting through live concerts."
