We’re back with this week’s edition of Oricon Flashback. This is where we look back on what topped Oricon this week 5, 10, 15, and 20 years ago. Think of it as a way to reminisce and learn about the past of Japanese music.
Note: Oricon took a holiday break this week in 1998, 2003, and 2008, so the numbers for this week will be reflected in next week’s numbers combined with the numbers for that week. The numbers for 2013 are available though.
Sandaime J Soul Brothers – MIRACLE (first week sales: 137,818)
V6 – ROCK YOUR SOUL (first week sales: 55,155)
