Johnny’s group Arashi’s Masaki Aiba’s stage play  has made its general DVD chart debut at number one, the first time a stage show has done so in Japanese DVD chart history, it was revealed on April 13, reports Oricon.

 

Aiba played the lead role in “君と見る千の夢 (Kimi to Miru Sen no Yume)”, which was performed at the Tokyo Globe theater in May 2010.  The story follows his character who ends up in a coma following a road accident.  Now as a spirit, he tracks back through the memories of his friends and girlfriend to try and find out how the accident happened.

 

The figures released by Oricon for their weekly DVD charts for April 18 have shown more than 45,000 copies of “君と見る千の夢 (Kimi to Miru Sen no Yume)” were sold in its opening week, sending it to the top of the general DVD charts.  Since DVD chart records began in 1999, it is the first time a stage show that is not a musical has made it to the top of the general charts.
