KAT-TUN become the first group since KinKi Kids to have five straight No.1 albums

For the first time in nearly 10 years, a male artist group has been able to get five straight No.1 albums, reveal figures released by Oricon today.

KAT-TUN’s fifth album “NO MORE PAIN” went on sale on June 16 and went straight to No.1, having sold more than 154,000 copies in its first week of sales.

Achieving five consecutive chart-topping albums is a feat not seen since 2001 when KinKi Kids released their “E album”.

“NO MORE PAIN” is the group’s first album since “Break the Records – by you & for you -“, which was released in April 2009.

The new album includes the singles “Going!”, “Love yourself ~君が嫌いな君が好き(Kimi ga Kiraina Kimi ga Suki)~”, and solo songs from group members.

Sales from their latest single, “Going!” have also jumped in the last week from No.38 to No.7.
