Yamapi Tops Music and Movie Charts

An awesome past week for Yamapi and I hope it continues…

As reported,

Yamashita Tomohisa aka Yamapi‘s movie, titled: “Kinkyori Renai“, is off to a good start as it tops the movie  box-office charts. The movie premiered last Oct 11th and last Oct 13th, the movie have mobilized 183,876 audiences and have grossed 235,830,000 Yen.

“Kinkyori Renai” tells the story of a tsundere English teacher and his forbidden love with his genius student played by Komatsu Nana. Most moviegoers are ladies from elementary students to women in their 40s. Furthermore, reactions from male audiences have also been unexpectedly good.

Also, Yamapi’s 4th album, “YOU“, managed to get the top spot in Oricon‘s weekly album ranking (Oct 6th-12th) with 46,000 units sold. This is the second time in 3 years that Yamapi’s album was able to get 1st place in Oricon’s weekly ranking since he debuted as a solo performer.

“YOU” consists of 12 tracks that includes “YOUR STEP” and “Daite Senorita 2014 version“.

      Maybe because he worked on it like a declaration of love for his woman, and it must be the best. (And if he wrote the lyrics, I think to know who she is, right?)

    re: “This is the first time in 8 years that Yamapi’s album was able to get 1st place in Oricon’s weekly ranking since he debuted as a solo performer.”

    Isn’t this the SECOND album in 3 years 8 months to capture the #1 spot?
    The first was SGSB which was released January 26, 2011.
