The Monthly Series chart for July is led by Moekare wa Orange-iro (also known as My Boyfriend in Orange) at 1,263.06 million yen (≈9.22 million USD), largely thanks to great performance of its single titled “Orange Kiss” performed by the Japanese idol boy band, Snow Man. It sold 830,163 copies in its first 5 days between July 11 and July 17 and serves as the official theme song for the live-action film which adapts Non Tamashima’s Manga of the same name.
