NMB48 3rd Single [Junjou U-19] 1st Day Sales

NMB48's 3rd Single Junjou U-19 was released today and it managed to rank 1 on the Oricon Daily charts with an impressive sales of 280,367 copies on the first day. This number marks an amazing increase of more than 100,000 copies compared to Oh My God!, which sold 172,474 on its first day.

This impressive number is also only about 5,000 copies short of Kataomoi Finally 1st Day sales (285,467). SKE48 sold well the other days of its first week, so the weekly sales will probably end up not as close as the 1st day sales, but I think this is still a sign that NMB48 catches up to SKE48.

2nd rank on Oricon today is Hikawa Kiyoshi with 14,154 copies, a huge gap to NMB48, so it is safe to say that the girls will keep the top spot in the weekly ranking.

Congrats to NMB48!
