posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
THE [email protected] CINDERELLA MASTER Cute jewelries! 003 album topped Oricon's weekly album chart for the May 30-June 5 week by selling 33,000 copies. It became the first album or single in the franchise to top the charts in its first week, and the first game album to top the charts in five years. The album collects songs from The [email protected] Cinderella Girls game series, and shipped on June 1.
The album ranked higher than the franchise's "THE [email protected] CINDERELLA GIRLS STARLIGHT MASTER 02 Tulip" single, which ranked #3 in the Oricon weekly single chart last month, and also topped THE [email protected] MASTER ARTIST 3 02 Ganaha Hibiki album, which ranked #4 in the album chart in April 2015.
The album is the third video game-related music album in the rankings' history to rank #1, after Kōkyō Kumikyoku Dragon Quest IV in March 1990, and Nevermore 'Persona 4' Rinne Tensei in October 2011.
The album has seven vocal tracks, with performances by Yuko Iida, Ru Thing, Haruka Yoshimura, Asami Takano, Kotomi Aihara, Sayuri Hara, and Natsumi Takemori as their respective characters. It also contains a bonus audio drama track and a karaoke track.
