Japanese hardware sales, Oct. 15 - Oct. 21: Surprisingly boring edition


"They'll never expect that!" I exclaimed to myself as I highlighted and deleted the 897 brilliant words that comprised an earlier version of this post. It seemed like a good idea at the time, with my desire to continually surprise readers leading me down the path more traveled. Indeed, this week's Japanese sales chart post (the 62nd!) would shock and baffle long-term readers by offering absolutely nothing of value outside of statistics and pleasingly colored arrows. This post would become the surprise birthday party for the 72-year old man! The agitated mountain lion hidden in the refrigerator! The hydrochloric acid in the bowling ball's finger holes!

So, here goes.
