The story of the CDJapan Official Charts can be traced back to 2005, when we decided to encourage visitors from all over the world to know trending artists/groups. Over the following years (from J Rock to Anime), the CDJapan charts have seen a dramatic number of changes, reflecting the changing face of the entertainment industry.

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of CDJapan, we will update this page weekly with a year-by-year chart in chronological order (2005-2016), which summarizes these changes over the many years. Before ending this year, we hope that you will share and enjoy "The Times They Are A-Changin'" mood with us!
