Background and release[edit]

After almost 2 years since Hey! Say! JUMP's first album JUMP NO. 1 was released, it was announced that the group would be releasing their second album on June 6, 2012.[1] The album would contain their singles from Arigatō (Sekai no Doko ni Ite mo) to SUPER DELICATE. The album would be released on two different version, a Regular Edition which contains a 3D Jacket and 40-page booklet[2] and Limited Edition which contains a DVD, a changeable jacket, and a 40-page booklet.[3] This also marks their first album without Ryutaro Morimoto.

Promotion[edit]

On May 25, TV Asahi's Music Station revealed their artist line-up for the June 1st episode.[4] This is where Hey! Say! JUMP started the album promotion. They performed a special medley of Arigatō (Sekai no Doko ni Ite mo), Boku wa Vampire, and SUPER DELICATE. The group also appeared on NHK's Music Japan on June 3, 2012. They also performed their title track, "Boku wa Vampire" on Ichiban Song Show and The Shonen Club.

Songs[edit]

All the singles that they released after "JUMP NO.1" were included on the album. These are "Over" and "Arigatō (Sekai no Doko ni Ite mo)" which were the last two singles in which Morimoto participated. "Magic Power" was used as the theme song for the Japanese dubbed movie The Smurfs. "Super Delicate" was the theme song of the TV comedy Risou no Musuko, in which members Yamada Ryosuke and Yuto Nakajima were lead cast.

"Boku wa Vampire" was the title track of the album. The song "Hana Egao" was currently used for Yuri Chinen's romantic comedy TV series, Sprout.

Chart performance[edit]

Upon its release, the album sold 60,379 copies on its first day making it number one on Oricon's Daily Single Chart. In its first week on chart, the album sold 126,578 copies topping the Oricon Weekly Chart. On its second week, the album placed at No. 8 and reportedly sold another 12,011 copies.
