AKB48’s Itano Tomomi scored her first #1 with her second solo single, “Fui ni.” It sold more than 90,000 copies, but that was far short of her first single “Dear J” that debuted at #2 in February with an initial 163,000 copies sold. Itano is now the second AKB48 member to top the charts as a solo artist, after Maeda Atsuko did so last month.

GACKT’s new single “Episode.0” entered the charts at #3, marking his 39th Top 10 single. Among male solo artists, he has now set a new record for “most Top 10 singles,” surpassing Tahara Toshihiko’s previous record of 38 set in 1992.
