A-1 Pictures-produced TV anime adaptation is now available on Crunchyroll

According to Oricon's daily single chart, "THE [email protected] SideM ANIMATION PROJECT 01 'Reason!!'" sold 5,388 copies and finally took the top spot on the sixth day of release, beating seven-member Japanese boy idol group Kanjani Eight's latest 40th single "Outou-seyo" with 4,378 copies, also released on the same day, November 15.


While "Outou-seyo" had dominated the top place for five consecutive days since release, "Reason" had kept following one place behind. Then on the sixth day, the fictional boy idol group overcame the real one at last.
