What an incredible day it’s been for AKB48 today for sales of their new single. All of us as fans expected a huge figure considering that the single contained the senbatsu election voting ticket, hell I even thought that selling a million copies in one day would be possible. Believe it or not, it very nearly did happen. In fact a quite phenomenal 942,475 copies have been sold propelling it into the all-time top 10 best selling singles sold in a week in Japan (no.7) just behind their last single. The no.1 position is currently held by Mr Children in which they sold 1.2 million. It wouldn’t surprise me to see AKB48 break that record this week. It’s safe to say that the million barrier will be breached tomorrow. Many many congratulations to AKB48.
