[Ponytail to Shushu] 1st Day sales

Going to let this picture speak for itself.

[Ponytail to Shushu] 1st day sales: 354,403!!!!!

Congratulations AKB!!!!

To give a comparison, SakuShio 1st day was 229,528. SakuShio total sales up to now is 378,696. PonyShu 1st day smashed through Sakushio's 1st day by an epic 124k copies, but just missed outselling the overall sales for Sakushio by just 24k. The latest single from Arashi, the top selling male idol group, has 1st day of only around 230,000. My predictions were right about this single. At the rate AKB is going, 17th Single should sell at least around 400,000 for its 1st day. Tis a great time to be an AKB wota.

Will PonyShu's 2nd day sales continue the streak? 2nd day sales for AKB Singles have always dropped heavily. I'm hoping at least 30k for 2nd day. My prediction for 1st week still stands at at least 400,000. It will surely break it, the question is by how much.
