The numbers don’t line as Japanese music chart Oricon reveals Top 5 in 2010 unit sales. From gross annual sales that accountants album,DVD and singles.

Total Artist Sales:

1. Arashi (17.163 billion yen)

3. AKB48 (7.092 billion yen)

Total Artist Sales (New Artists):

Amazing enough both Korean base artists TVXQ(Tohoshinki); Kara and SNSD are place. With Kara leading the way for new artist sales. SNSD not slagging to far behind. Mega J-pop idol groups like Arashi, AKB48, and EXILE continue to advance.
