The figures are in for the first day sales for AKB48’s 20th single Sakura no Ki ni Narou and it’s mindblowing. It’s done even better than Beginner which sold 568,095 on it’s 1st day and if sales continue to be high for the rest of the week it could come close to breaking the 1 million barrier. To achieve that would be sensational for AKB48. We’re already looking at possibly the best selling single of the year and it’s only February. There’s nobody that can stop the AKB48 juggernaut right now. 655,344 copies were sold today so it’s topped Beginner by nearly 90k.
Congratulations to all the girls. Let’s see what happens tomorrow.
