This week, the chart for the first time counts a day of year 2012 and without much surprise too…


New entries to the charts is 9… … but majority of them got the top 5 slots. With Akanishi Jin’s “Season” claiming the top spot followed by a rare clash between an AKB Sub unit, No3b and a Sister Group, SDN48.

But what really picked my interest for this week is the group known as E-Girls by Avex Trax. A better look at them and you might notices something… Isn’t that the girls from FLOWER? HAPPINESS? and DREAM?

Ok… here comes another mega girl group…


Yes, you have not mistaken… AVEX have merged them together to form E-Girls to bring us “Celebration!”… Not sure if it’s a temporarily arrangement or not but… Looks like FLOWER at least have a chance of survival now… given their dismay performance against the other 2, 2011 debuted groups, Super Girls and Fairies.

Also it seem S/mileage is making up for lost time… Releasing the cute Please Mini-Skirt Postwomen and then in Feb 1st, Chotomate Kudasai.

Now for the charts,
