LiSA’s “Homura” logs a third consecutive week at No. 1 on the latest Billboard Japan Hot 100, dated Nov. 2 to 8, continuing its reign over downloads, streaming, and video views.

The blockbuster anime movie theme also continues to perform well in physical sales (No. 5), look-ups (No. 2), radio airplay (No. 4), Twitter mentions (No. 9), and karaoke (No. 4), holding Sexy Zone’s new single “NOT FOUND” at bay.

The Johnny’s boy band’s latest release sold 251,468 copies to lead sales and look-ups this week, securing both of the physical metrics of the chart’s methodology. But the track couldn’t collect enough points in other areas such as Twitter (No. 3) and radio (No. 47), and it launches at No. 2 on the Japan Hot 100.

Bump of Chicken’s “Acacia” — featured as the theme of the “Pokémon Special Music Video” GOTCHA! — sold 89,089 copies in its first week and moves 29-3 to return to the top 10 this week.

The Billboard Japan Hot 100 combines physical and digital sales, audio streams, radio airplay, Twitter mentions, YouTube and GYAO! video views, Gracenote look-ups and karaoke data.
