Otoya's character song takes 4th on first day of release

Wednesday means (preliminary) "report card" time for most Japanese musicians because that's the day rankings for new released singles are published. This week we have quite a number of strong competitors, with Kat-Tun [#1], T.M. RevolutionXMizuki Nana (the OP song for Valvrave the Liberator, currently airing anime) [#2], Otoya's (CV: Terashima Takuma) character song [#4], KyaryPamyuPamyu [#8], KamiYu (ED for Karneval, currently airing anime) [#16] and Shirokuma's character song (CV: Sakurai Takahiro) [#25].
I'm rather surprised that Otoya beat KPP, and I'm very proud and happy that KamiYu and Sakurai made it to the top 30. I didn't screenshot it in, but Masato's character song still stayed within the top 30, dropping down to #21.
