With its debut at No. 20 this week, 「DESTINATION」 makes its gallant entry on the yet to be released (due later today) Oricon Weekly Album chart with sales of 6,664枚 (according to this site)
The expensive 「AKINA BOX（18枚組）」 also makes an impressive entry in the Top 100, at No. 97, though the actual number of sales is unknown at this point and will be updated later.
In comparison with her recent debuts, this is her first Top 20 hit since 「I Hope So」 . Akina Fun Site has also listed the debut positions and first week sales for her albums since 2000.
ZERO album～歌姫Ⅱ(10) – 47,280 (229,744 total)
Resonancia (15) – 18,970 (31,030)
歌姫 Double Decade (8) – 31,239 (83,046)
I Hope So (15) – 9,756 (17,964)
歌姫3～終幕 (25) – 14,257 (31,311)
BEST FINGER (29) – 6,630 (13,557)
So, it sold slightly better than 「BEST FINGER」, but as the author pointed as well, 「BEST FINGER」 did have 5 different variations in cover.
