Boy band Arashi released a new album on Wednesday, titled "Boku no Miteiru Fuukei." In its first day of sales, fans bought 275,000 copies, setting a new personal record for the group. Last year, their "All the BEST! 1999-2009" collection set their previous record with 261,000 copies in its first day. That album went on to sell 753,000 copies within the first week, so many are hoping to see "Boku no Miteiru Fuukei" break that record as well.
Arashi's last original album was "Dream A live" in 2008. Since then, they have released several hit singles, including "Monster" and "Troublemaker," which both sold more than half a million copies in their first weeks.
