AKB48 21st Single [Everyday, Kachuusha] sells a million in 2 days!

Everyday Kachuusha ORICON sales
Day 1:  942,475
Day 2:  142,233

Total: 1,084,708

If there's any sign that AKB48's popularity is gonna decrease anytime soon, I don't see it. All they are doing now is rising and rising. AKB48's latest Single Everyday, Kachuusha smashed the 1st week sales of their preceding Single Sakura no Ki ni Narou in just a single day! Sakura no Ki ni Narou sold 942,479 copies in it's first week, and Everyday, Kachuusha sold 942,745 on it's release date, just barely making it over by 266 copies. Only 57255 copies left to a million!

Which of course wasn't a problem for AKB48 even with the usual sales drop after the 1st day. They managed to sell 142,233 copies and bring the total so far to 1084,708 copies. Everyday, Kachuusha is now #2 in the "Oricon best 1st week Single sales", and there's still 5 days left! Only 124k copies stand between them and Mr.Children's Namonaki uta, the Single with the best 1st week sales in Japan history.

#1: 1.208 mil:  Namonaki Uta / Mr.Children
#2: 1.084 mil:  Everyday, Kachuusha / AKB48
#3: 1.068 mil:  Addicted To You / Hikaru
