According to the oricon chart,singer and voice actress Maaya Sakamoto ((坂本 真綾),30, has finally topped the weekly sales charts for the first time in her 15-year career. Her seventh album, “You can’t catch me,” was released last week and sold almost 27,000 copies to earn the #1 spot. Before this, her highest ranking on the charts (for either albums or singles) was #3, which she has achieved on four separate occasions.

Sakamoto made her debut as a voice actress in 1992 as the voice of Chifuru in the anime series Little Twins, but is more well known for her role as Hitomi Kanzaki[3] in the hit anime series The Vision of Escaflowne.
STRAIGHTENER’s new album ranked #4, while a Noriyuki Makihara tribute album ranked #6.STRAIGHTENER is a Japanese rock band, started out as a duo with Atsushi Horie (vocals/guitar) and Shinpei Nakayama (drums) in 1998. They established an independent label named Ghost Records in 2002. Hidekazu Hinata joined the band as bassist in 2003, and in October of the same year they released a single, “TRAVELING GARGOYLE” Jun Oyama (guitar) jointed the band in 2008.

On the singles chart, rock band RADWIMPS took the top spot with their new song “DADA,” selling close to 90,000 copies. This is just their second time to achieve a number-one single.

AKB48 became the first artist to ever have 4 singles in the top ten for three consecutive weeks. “Heavy Rotation,” “Beginner,” “Chance no Junban,” and “Ponytail to Chou-chou” all dropped from last week in the rankings, but they still managed to chart at #5, #6, #8, and #9, respectively. “Beginner” has now sold approximately 995,000 copies, which means that it may pass the million mark next week.
