A quite significant drop in sales today as AKB48 shifted just 57,945 copies of their single to bring the overall total to 1,142,653. That means they have just over 65,000 more copies to sell if they need to overtake Mr Children. Hopefully they can sell around 100k over the weekend for them to smash the record.
