SDN48 3rd Single [MIN.MIN.MIN] 1st day sales

SDN48 released their 3rd single [MIN.MIN.MIN] today, selling 57k copies and taking the 2nd place in the Oricon daily charts. They lost the 1st place to Johnny's Entertainment group Kanjani8 with their single 'Tsubusa ni Koi' which sold 70k, 13k more than SDN.

At 57 copies sold, it's 7k up from their previous single Ai, Chuseyo. Not much, but at least it's an increase unlike Warota or DiVA's latest singles. However since they are a proper OOO48 group and already on their 3rd single, one would expect their sales to be higher. Comparing the 2 is wrong but it's still sad to see SDN48 sales much lower than NMB48 even though they had a big head start.
