K-On! anime character album tops chart

Hokago Teatime – a two-CD mini-album performed by the characters of the K-On! anime series – became the first anime character CD release to top either the weekly album or single chart of the Oricon survey firm.

The CD release sold 67,000 copies to debut at #1 on the latest weekly album chart. No other album credited to fictional anime characters has ever reached that high on the popular chart. Hence it’s a pretty remarkable achievement.

Judging by its trend we may see a second season of the anime. Not all shows will get a sequel just because it’s popular though, we can only hope.
