I expected SDN48’s last single Makeoshimi Congratulation to do really well in the Oricon Charts when it was released yesterday and it did on the first day but today it has since dropped out of the Top 5 in the daily charts which is really disappointing. There was never any chance of them beating Arashi for the no.1 weekly position but it would have been nice to see them take the no.2 spot.It’s only the 2nd day I know but the single has been released in a very tough week for them.
The first day saw them nearly topping 60k but way behind Arashi who sold over 200k. Today saw them drop to no.8. Exact sales is unknown but it’s probably something between 3 – 5k which is really poor. I thought the fans would have backed them big time seeing as it’s their last single and besides the leading track is a good one as well. I’m hoping sales will pick up again especially over the weekend. SDN48 needs to go out with a bang and not a whimper.
Come on AKB/SKE/NMB/HKT fans – support these girls in their last single. You know it makes sense.
