The Ninki Poll is, well, a poll given out by Oricon every week asking random Japanese fans which singles they are likely to buy. It isn't a prediction of sales, but it does give a decent gauge on what some of Japan thinks about this week's singles.


What I said in the other post is basically reflected here - EXILE has #1 hands down (though it would be great if we could take away a daily #1 near the end of the week on Friday or something) and #2 is Morning Musume's spot to lose. K-pop group RAINBOW is debuting so they could be real trouble and a couple of popular groups and soloists will be in their 2nd and 3rd week on the charts too, but unless YELLOW FRIED CHICKENz sells out of their mind (they do have something to do with Gackt) or unless RAINBOW has a great debut single, we can certainly send Aichan off with a weekly #2.

Originally I only bought 5 copies, but for this special occasion I bought some more, bringing my total to 14. Let's show Aichan and Morning Musume some love by buying this single if you can!


  1. Hello-Online members have ordered a total of 202 copies together and more are certain to be added.

    If anyone reading this has an account on H!O, please consider posting in the 47th single thread over there so we can add it to the tally.

    Looks like Gackt and his band are the main thread. I'm quite a big fan of him, but not really a fan of this particular release.

  2. Yeah, YELLOW FRIED CHICKENz is Gackt's band (he's the lead singer) so it's not just a project. They just added LUNA SEA's drummer to the line-up. Gackt could release a fart-track and I'd want to buy it. The man just has some kind of mind control.
