No Sleeves [Kuchibiru Furezu...] 1st Week Sales

Following the last update where the ladies of No Sleeves sold 42k units of their 7th single, Kuchibiru Furezu, on the first day on the Oricon charts, the Oricon Weekly charts has also been updated, where the trio kept their #3 position, ranking in after Hey!Say!Jump! and KARA.

The final sales count for the week tallied up to close to 100k sales, which is the best weekly result for the subunit so far. To put this into context, their 6th single Answer, which was released back in March, sold about 82k in its first week, while the 5th single Kimishika sold about 31k.

So as we can see, the popularity of AKB48's subunits grows with the main group, though it might not be at a steep rate. They're still not yet at Not Yet's level of 150k sales in a week but I hope they won't take long to reach it. I really did hope for a better result, considering that No3b is my favourite subunit out of the many. The songs are of good quality too, so I thought it was really worth the support. Let's hope they do even better the next time round!
