The No.1 single of the week is veteran voice actress Yui Horie's 15th single "Natsu no Yakusoku" (The Summer Promise). The song is used for the ED theme for TV anime DOG DAYS'. The CD also gets solid 12th spot in the Oricon weekly single ranking, selling 13,378 units in the first week. The close second is another veteran anime voice actress/singer Maaya Sakamoto's 21st single "More Than Words" (not a cover of Extreme's hit ballad in 1990).
