Oricon charts and overseas fans

alright people *cracks knuckles*

so when those tweets about Oricon not including the overseas sales in their sales total, I emailed CDJapan about it (since I use it only but this also applies to other online shops) and it took them a couple of days to reply since they were investigating the matter with oricon.

Their reply came in confirmation that it is true that Oricon does not count overseas sales anymore.
