this is encouraging for ai. i don't think it is necessary for her to be number one, even being on such a list is quite an accomplishment, so i feel great for ai.

Keep in mind the numbers of singles and albums she released this years: 2 albums, and at least 11 singles.

Koda Kumi would not have done it without two best compilations and 12 singles in 12 weeks, and multi A-side singles. ah man why do I even bother!

Congratulations to Ai-chin!! LOVE COOK really put her on the charts as the singles didn't sell too well!

i have no comment for kat-kun LOL.... mostly all female fans i suppose. im acting like this because their song are a lil weird to me, face selling if you get me.

LOL, i thought Ayumi would be higher but nope, too bad, this year her album is a flop to ME....

the bashing towards koda kumi wouldn't stop i suppose. No comment about her dressing if you dont like but well, her voice is better than a lot of jpop artist anyway.

alright now, someone tell me who are Remioromen ???? as in, which song made them big.... no idea who are they !! somehow they sound a lil like splitz ?

smap have always been famous ?? my mum like one of them

Ken Hirai ???... didnt know he is that hot either LOL.

Mika !! NANA !!...... lol her voice is powerful to me, lovin her voice but not her recently produced music, sounds weird !!

ar !!! AICHIN turn !!........ deserve a higher position, this year no big hit ?? was a lil disappointed by that but bonzai LOL, i think its time for some more upbeat songs !! next year she'll be in the top 5 LOL.. release more singles !! Laughing although top 10 is already very good !! Surprised

I used to be a huge Ayu and Kumi fan but I grew out of them but I've been more into Ai for a longer time and more in depth then both of those artists put together! I consider Ai-chin the gem of the group and I actually like it that way, so I'm happy for her and her spot. Happy

Whaaaaaaat. Sorry Kumi fans, but I personally think Ayu and Ai outshined her this year. I suppose it IS the number of releases that attributed to her rank, but I think Ai's song quality has been better Giggle

Isn't it normal for an cd+dvd album?
