Singer Namie Amuro's new live DVD, "namie amuro Best Fiction Tour 2008-2009," has topped the Oricon weekly charts for the week of Sept 15-21 in DVD and Blu-ray sales.

This is Amuro's first time to hit the No. 1 spot on these two charts. She has also achieved record sales of a DVD from a female artist, having sold 1.55 million copies since the DVD went on sale Sept 9.

I've noticed the popularity of this DVD recently. Amuro is great, but I wonder what is drawing such a high demand. Good advertising maybe.

I think she is hot and she can sing really well.

Odd that they're not selling the DVD at McDonalds?

Seventeen years and still going. That's an amazing accomplishment in a pop culture world where most careers last little more than a year Amuro

Pre year 2000 fans don't download and copy it's the reason all these old bands and groups are making a comeback.

The Oricon chart is the only chart in Japan that is accurate (based on units sold) the rest are virtually all paid for positions based on "played" (including TV countdowns).

Not impressed with her. She seems like a high-class you-know-what to me. She can flaunt it all for cameras on stage or anywhere else, but once someone takes a snapshot of her with her kid in public, she goes ballistic. Thanks, but no thnaks.

@ "TheDave" - I also find it amazing that she has lasted so long in a largely competitive career. She definitely has the "IT" factor about her. I love her music and personally think she is beautiful.

Her own mum was hacked to death in Okinawa..I can understand her wanting to protect her kid from weirdos with cameras and journalists.

Osakadaz, yes her mother was murdered but she was murdered by Amuro's uncle (the mother's brother or brother-in-law) who went on to commit suicide.

BlueTiger, lots of famous people jealously guard their childrens' privacy.

I've always enjoyed her music and singing and am glad she's still on top of the game.

I'm afraid Namie Amuro Best Fiction Tour 2008-2009 has sold 155,000 copies (not 1.55 million copies) since the DVD went on sale Sept 9, according to several Japanese stats.

for some of ur info she's not with TK no more, she is doing way better without him. She is an independent woman who has been through a lot and deserves our support. We love u namie!! keep on d awesome work!!
