:: sigh :: K-ON? Really?

In what is sure to put a bad taste in the mouths of genuine JMusic fans the world over, the "girls" from the K-ON anime have released the first Anime Character album to reach #1 on the Oricon charts...ever. It sold 67,000 copies in its first week beating out new albums from Jerry Yan (who?), ROCK'A'TRENCH (who?), and Koji Kikkawa (who?). I guess the saving grace is that the competition was weak...

Before this, only 4 Anime Character singles have made a similar impact on the charts, but they topped out at #2.
