"My prediction for 1st week still stands at at least 400,000. It will surely break it, the question is by how much."
Damn this is impressive. A 159,050 rise after first day! Didn't expect this. At least not on the first day. It was obvious they were going to break the 500k barrier on the days leading to the end of the first week. Still, seeing this with my own eyes is is another thing.At this rate, 17th Single is going to beat 600k :) .
- Best first week numbers for a female group since Momusu's [Renai Revolution 21] (515k) released approx. 9 years and 5 months ago
- Best first week numbers for a female artist since Utada Hiraku's [Can You Keep a Secret?] (784k) approx. 9 year and 3 months ago.
For those of you haters thinking that they only managed to reach this amount because of their gimmicks and such, sure the Senbatsu Election helped to boost the sales, but only the First Press copies comes with the voting tickets it. Anything after doesn't come with any stuff. Ponyshu is also currently in the Top 10 in the chaku uta (music ringtone) chart, Top 5 in the Full Song charts, and #1 in the Video Clips chart. Downloading from there doesn't give you a free handshake or anything like that. They also have many older songs in the Top 100 of all of these charts. Deny all you want, but it won't change the facts.
