Idol group NMB48 topped the charts this week with their 3rd single, “Junjou U-19,” selling more than 329,000 copies. The group now has a streak of 3 consecutive #1 singles starting with their debut, becoming the first female artist ever to achieve that (not counting soloists or sub-units from existing groups). Until now, the longest streak starting with a debut was 2, first achieved by Yakushimaru Hiroko in 1983 and duplicated by Sawajiri Erika in 2007.

She also set a new record for “most consecutive years with a #1 on the music DVD charts,” with a span of 8 years (2005-2012). For the moment, this puts her ahead of Mr.Children, who currently have a streak of 7 years (2005-2011).

Among solo artists, the DVD gives Koda the record of “most #1s on the music DVD charts” (9), surpassing Takizawa Hideaki (8). Koda is also now tied with Utada Hikaru for “most #1s on the general DVD charts” (8).
