NMB48 [Zetsumetsu Kurogami Shoujo] First Day Sales

NMB48 released their debut single Zetsumetsu Kurogami Shoujo on July 20 managing to sell 131,654 copies on its first day. This got them the Number 1 spot on Oricon Daily ranking for the first day.

131,654 is a really amazing number for first day sales and personally I am surprised and very happy for the girls. Surely they profit from AKB48's current popularity, but it is still a nice accomplishment.

But the interesting part comes now. If NMB48 manages to get the No 1 spot for weekly charts as well, they will get rewards from comedians sharing the same agency with them. If they fail to do it, they will have to perform a whole stage show in bloomers instead.

Getting the top spot on the weekly charts will be a tough job considering that NMB48 has to stand up against popular Korean boyband Tohoshinki. Not surprising, sales have already dropped to 15,719 copies for the second day, bringing total sales to 147,373.
