KinKi Kids World is for all English-speaking KinKi Kids fans who, despite the language barrier, have found themselves falling in love with KinKi Kids and their music, this is my humble attempt to bring us all closer to the world of KinKi Kids - Domoto Tsuyoshi 堂本刚 (244) and Domoto Koichi 堂本光一(51).

The contents of this blog are based primarily on contents found in other Chinese blogs, as I have only just started learning Japanese (which is とても むずがしです i.e. very difficult). I wish to thank all the Chinese Kinki Kids fans for their hard work and efforts in translating the Japanese materials/information on the KinKi Kids.

Oricon Chart: KinKi Kids' 29th Single 『スワンソング』 (Swan Song) is No. 1 on 1st day of release!

KinKi Kids' 29th single 『スワンソング』 (Swan Song) took the No. 1 spot on the Oricon Chart Singles Daily Ranking Chart on their 1st day of release (28 Oct 2009) with sales of 72291.

I was at first quite pleasantly surprised when I compared to the 1st day's sales figure of Yakusoku which was at 42094, especially considering the Oricon's expectation points are lower this round. Well, I found the answer for this mystery on another fan's blog (ZAN). It seems that Oricon has recently changed its point/rating measure, which means that we are not comparing apple to apple...... Zan has done the adjustments to the Yakusoku's sales figures and it turns out to be 76747 for the 1st day.

Anyway, no matter what, KinKi Kids have achieved a good sales volume again with their 29th single and should be on their way to further increase their Guiness record. Please do buy the single if you have not bought it yet. The songs in this single are really excellent!
