      I was very surprised to see BoA on the list :) I’m even more surprised at the songs O_o Meri Kuri & LOVE LETTER are ballads. I don’t know anyone who uses a ballad as a ringtone.

    • Yagami Raito

      Ataru Nakamura really surprises me.

    • I don’t know why this list is so Avex heavy this month.

      • lol

        a-nation

        • Why do you think that?

      • pk@fire

        Mu-mo is also owned by Avex, so it helps that they promote it a bit more and they tend to have a larger, younger fan base among girls/women.

        It’s nice to see some newer singles on the list though. Hopefully this starts picking up.

        • I know that but I’m talking about why these Avex songs are all being certified in bulk like this. Other monthes they come in here and there.

          • pk@fire

            Yeah that’s really true. Perhaps a combination of factors?

            Whatever it is, I’m hoping it’s more indicative of people adopting smartphones and such.

      wow, BoA is on A list, it’s been a while since I last saw her on ANY last LOL <3

    • eplizo

      “Hide & Seek” is one of the best songs of all time. Well deserved. So much Exile too. Yesss.
