Wow, she actually debuted in the Top 10. Smile That's higher than Love Tricky's and Love Fantastic's first day ranking. I'm curious to see how much this will sell in the first week.

Well, don't expect too much since the Top 3 aren't selling a lot (#3 sold 2,896 copies...)
But it's Ai's lucky number haha

I'm pretty surprised she debuted that high, but she had a drama tie in. That definitely helped a lot.

She's #21 today (LOVE TRiCKY was #42 and LOVE FANTASTIC #26)

EDIT 4/14: She's still #21 today (LOVE TRiCKY was #34 and LOVE FANTASTIC #23)
She might do better than LOVE TRiCKY Smile

EDIT 4/15: She's #35 today (LOVE TRiCKY was out of the top 50 and LOVE FANTASTIC #29)

So the album will probably chart better than Love Tricky but I doubt that she'll sell more...

That's indeed possible, and not a surprise.

She's #23 weekly and she sold 2,552 copies.
Even less that her two previous albums. Gosh.

Don't get me wrong, I love Ai-chan, but this is depressing, for her, her team, her work. I guess she keeps releasing album because she still want to.

I love her and I wish her the best but every time she releases something new I don't expect too much sales anymore. Sad It's sad.

Welcome SailorVenus, it's always good to see some new faces here!
I agree. We can't expect much.

Disappointing but not surprising.

I don't know if she still cares about selling a lot of albums... Her last release with decent sales was Re:Name (which only sold 10k too) and if sales still mattered to her she could have called it quits a long time ago.

As any other artist, she gets a lot more money from tours than from album sales.
Also physical sales have been declining a lot lately with Spotify being introduced to Japan last year and services like Apple Music or LINE music.

Hello everyone. Smile
Even if albums don't sell a lot I think Ai still creates music because she loves it and cares about her real fans.

I love her new album. Tokyo Sampo is a great song Smile. Now I just gotta get her other two recent albums that I missed!

Regarding sales, I think she's in a position where she no longer needs to be on the top of the charts. The most of the revenues comes from tours and that's the point. Make new albums, bring people to concerts, and that's all.
