Several songs managed to hang on from last week, albeit in the bottom half. 「花唄」 by Greeeen, AAA's 「No Cry no More」, 「Flags」 by T.M. Revolution and 「Replay」 by SHINee all manage to stick around for a second week on the countdown. (I'll try to have some of these guys up for download later in the week.)
New stuff by Hilcrhyme, Garnet Crow, and Hello Project's only solo artist at the moment, Mano Erina, rounded out the middle of the countdown.
L'Arc en Ciel's new song 「Good Luck My Way」 debuts at #4, reiterating that they still have "it", whatever "it" is-- I've certainly never been able to figure "it" out or I would be laying on a beach somewhere right now, not writing this blog.
Debuting at #3 is a group I've never heard of before: no3b. I'm not even sure how you pronounce their name. They look sort of like a Japanese cross between the bands Ratt and Heart, but with more smoke.
Edit: Holy crap, it's members of AKB48. The music video is so dark and smokey, I thought they were an 80's band.
Finally, the female otaku and erstwhile tweens take the reins this week, propelling Hey!Say!Jump to the top spot with their new single 「OVER」.
