SKE48 [Pareo wa Emerald] 1st day sales
SKE48's 6th Single released yesterday to incredible success. Pareo wa Emerald 264 thousand copies sold on it's first day in the charts. Even though I thought the single was a step down from their 5th Single Banzai Venus too.
In comparison with SKE48's previous 2 singles, Banzai Venus sold 206k on it's 1st week, 60k less than Pareo's 1st day on the charts. 1!2!3!4! Yoroshiku! sold 119k for it's 1st week. And comparing with AKB48's singles, Sakura no Shiori sold 229k on it's 1st day. So SKE48 is in the same level AKB48 was in February last year. AKB48's sales started doubling from RIVER. Will the same happen for SKE48? I think it will.
