No Sleeves' debut album was released on New Years' Day. As Oricon charts usually take a break during the first week of new year, we had no way of finding out how it was doing except for waiting.
Until finally on January 9th, the charts for the first week was revealed:
#1 position get!! The album sales are nothing short of stellar for an idol subunit group. I certainly am pleased because I had not expected the sales to be so good. I thought the high pricing might put people off, good job to the wotas and fans!
no3b's album outdid fellow OgiPro 5-person outfit Watarirouka Hashiritai's "Rouka wa Hashiruna!" which sold 32k copies in the first week and got as high as #4.
Also, today Oricon released the results for the 2nd week. no3b is at #4 with 20,723 copies sold.
I'm so proud of no3b.
I feel kind of guilty for not buying the album because they're my favourite subunit for AKB, but all my money has been going to buying BLTs and such ._. Coupled with film project budget and other things, poor students like me only get poorer. I will probably get the regular edition in the future, but not now. I'm a bad example, but I recommend all of you to buy it XD
