Utada’s Record-Breaking Downloads Broken Down by Song
Update: Of the 10.5 million record-breaking song downloads that Hikaru Utada has sold so far this year, “Flavor of Life (Ballad Version)” (a song inserted into the Hana Yori Dango 2 [Returns] live-action drama adaptation of the popular shōjo manga) has accounted for 7,306,000 since January 15.

The “Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words)-2007 Mix” used in the Evangelion: 1.0 You Are [Not] Alone trailer has sold 276,000 times since June 29. “Beautiful World,” the ending theme of the actual movie, has sold 881,000 times since July 23.

Ray’s take: see the title of this post. What, I’m not part of the sales and marketing staff of any animation studio/distributor, therefore their logistics are not my problem!

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
