[Sakura no Shiori] Day 2, Day 3

[Sakura no Shiori] 2nd day sales: 34,294
Well I knew this would happen. 34,294. Massive drop from yesterday's sales. 2nd day sales are lower compared to RIVER's 2nd day (54,049). But well their still at 1st place and that's what matters. I think they will stay in 1st place for the rest of the week. There might be a good reason for the lower sales though, online stores are pretty much sold out due to massive demand and lots of people have been put on backorder. However not all is bad. 90% of the sales now are from the general population who are walking into stores and buying. That's still quite good. Oh and AKB's FIRST PLATINUM!!! *
Total Sales: 263,822
[Sakura no Shiori] 3rd day sales: 17,688
3rd day sales are still strong at 17,688. A little higher than RIVER's 3rd day (14,259). Their still first though, 2nd place only sold 5k. Total now stands at 281,510. They only need 20k more for them to reach 300k. If the sales will be similar to RIVER, sales for the rest of the week will drop to 4 digits and will only sell for the rest of the week around 10k to 20k. If it doesn't make 300k by the end of this week then it surely will at Week 2 Day 1. But I'm expecting it earlier than that. AKB performed in Music Station today and I suppose that will boost sales a bit.
Total Sales: 281,510
