SDN48 [Makeoshimi Congratulation] 1st Day Sales

SDN48 released their 5th and final single [Makeoshimi Congratulation] yesterday, ranking in 2nd with 59,971 sold.

Except for AKB48, Arashi is still a major force to deal with. There was no way SDN48 would have ever beaten Arashi for 1st day sales, and they definitely won't for 1st week. Which is quite sad because I wanted them to get the 1st place for their final single.

Makeoshimi Congratulation's sales is quite similar to that of their previous 3 singles, which all sold around 50k for 1st day. This being their last single, I expected more people to buy it. But that's apparently not the case.

2nd day sales are not any better, this time SDN48 has dropped down to 8th place, below fellow idol group Momoiro Clover Z. The sales of 3rd place J Soul Brothers' [Go my way] is 10.5k, so 8th place would be somewhere around 4-5k? Not good news for 1st week sales. At this rate they might even be out of the top 5.
