They've really blown up with CASE143. I'm happy there are people other than me that appreciate that song like it deserves
Since they've started their dome tour now (with 8 Japan dates in Tokyo Dome, Kyocera Dome Osaka, Fukuoka PayPay Dome, Vantelin Dome Nagoya), I got to thinking about how their popularity there really skyrocketed since last year especially. They've had a nice following for a while, but now they're really up there. So I thought I'd make a thread with some of their stats to acknowledge it.
At this point, is Japan their biggest/main market? It's at least 2nd biggest. They've really built on their momentum so far which is good.
First: Since I already mentioned the dome tour, 2,5M is crazy:
CASE143 on Line-music mid-year chart:
+ The Sound album double platinum certification for 500,000 by RIAJ
Billboard Japan Artist chart:
Billboard Japan HOT100:

* S-Class peaked in the top 10 at #8.
Billboard download chart:
Also just very random, but since I liked Alice in Borderland, it was fun to see one of the actresses be a big fan!
Lastly, I want to mention their 1st Japanese EP releasing soon featuring LiSA (very popular and has made many anime intros, like Demon Slayer!). It'd be sick if she performed with them at one of the concerts
Maniac (I guess with help from Thunderous too) made their popularity in China blow up, CASE143 in Japan... SK when??? lol
