released the paid download certifications for the month of June yesterday.
Good news, Janne Da Arc's Gekkouka
and Acid Black Cherry's Aishitenai
are certified Gold
(more than 100,000 paid downloads)!Gekkouka
had sold more than 350k of physical CDs the last time I checked, which was years ago (I'm sure it has already sold more than that).
time (2005), digital singles were not as famous as today; most people would normally buy the physical singles. You can see above that Gekkouka
digital release date was 2009/05/19 (4 years after it was released physically).
However, I've been seeing both Gekkouka
keep re-entering the recochoku
(Japan's biggest digital store) chaku-uta full chart the past couple of months like a boss, they got in all they please and got out all they please, LOL.
So, I can't say I'm that surprised to find these certifications at RIAJ website.
Still, this deserves congratulatory pats.
