NMB48 2nd Single [Oh My God!] First week sales

Making the start for another x48 related release rush, NMB48 released its 2nd Single [Oh My God!] on October 19, managing to sell 265,435 copies in the first week. First day sales amount to 172,474 copies. With those sales, [Oh My God!] tops the Oricon Weekly Charts for the second time with a sales increase of almost 50,000 copies in the first week compared to their first single [Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo] (First week sales 218,441).

Not surprisingly, NMB48 is continuing the positive sales trend of the x48 main groups: [Oh My God!] outsold [Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo] (Overall sales 260,212) after only six days.

As usual for AKB48 and its sister groups, this sales succes comes with new records and titles: according to Oricon, NMB48 is now the first female newcomer group to sell more than 200,000 copies for the first two singles and the third new female artist to do so.
