Acchan will top the Oricon Charts this week as her debut single Flower sold 177,000 copies but more significantly she also becomes the biggest selling female artist of the year beating even Tomochin who shifted 163,000 copies during her 1st week. Acchan has also sold more than any AKB48 sub-unit.
The last female singer to hit the top spot on her debut was none other than Japan’s 2nd most hated female Erika Sawajiri 5 years ago. Additionally Acchan also becomes the first female from a group to score a no.1 hit since Maki Goto and that was just over 10 years ago.
Congratulations Acchan on your achievement.
