Does anyone know if Billboard Japan counts foreign sales? I stopped buying CDs all together once Oricon started hating foreign people, but I may start buying albums again if Billboard doesn't care. I kinda want to support Kobushi's first effort more than just pick it up on US i-tunes.

I'm not sure so far as Billboard goes, but apparently Oricon counts foreign sales again. http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/oricon.html

SINCE WHEN DOES ORICON COUNT FOREIGN SALES WHAT
...Are you sure it's not talking about, CDJapan to within Japan supports Oricon, but CDJapan to outside of Japan doesn't?

Oricon still says this:

日本国外への発送商品は対象外となります

As far as I understand this means shipping outside of Japan is excluded.

So CD Japan will count but you can't ship it from Japan, proxy shipping services should still work? ie nothing's really changed other than at least it's easier for foreigners to buy from CD Japan rather than internal websites.

That's what it looks like to me anyway.

Given that CDJapan is the website for foreigner sales (http://www.neowing.co.jp is the Japanese-language site), it feels like it would be very misleading for them to have that note on their site if no foreign sales are counted.
I've sent an email to CDJapan re: Oricon & Billboard Japan.

Yes for that reason it's definitely worth getting clarification.

I don't know if it'll be the same way in the final recording, but I love the way Sakurako (at least I think it was her) ends "Kenmei Blues" in the live performance. The way her voice trailed off was great.

Both sets of costumes are great, but I really love the casual stuff. Something about them feels just right.

Bad news on both fronts. :<
CDJapan wrote:Hello.

Thank you for contacting CDJapan.

Oricon takes data from some online shop, and we are one of them.

However, Oricon only counts orders shipped within Japan, and they do not count any order that is sent to consumers outside of Japan from any store, and we are no exception.

Basically, Oricon thinks it is their mission to offer marketing information within Japan, and they think the information will not be accurate if they counted orders that were sent outside of Japan.

As for Billboards, they do not take data from us.


Sincerely,
Toshi Makiya

I like how they used "they think" than "they believe." Maybe CDJapan isn't a fan of Oricon's rules as well. :hehe:

Since CDJapan = Neowing, maybe Billboard doesn't get much information from online only stores. From what I've heard from the other site, Billboard reports from 3,900 stores while Oricon reports from 23,800. Hopefully, they can be able to get sales report from more stores as time passes and I hope they do more than a news post with a rounded amount in the future.

I like both outfits. The casual ones fit every individual so well. And I love archery uniforms.
