Arashi's 12th original album "LOVE" (released on October 23) sold 62,000 copies in the second week (732,000 copies in total), and it once again topped Oricon's weekly album chart for the 2nd week in a row.
This is the first time in 3 years and 3 months for a group's album to top the weekly chart for 2 consecutive weeks. Arashi was the last to achieve this with their 9th original album "Boku no Miteiru Fukei" (relased in August 2010).
"LOVE" is also the first album in 2013 that sold over 700,000 copies.
