AKB48 [Manatsu no Sounds Good!] 1st Day Sales
[Manatsu no Sounds Good!] first day sales is a whooping 1,170,554 copies. Being a election single this was expected but its also their highest first day sales ever. Last year's election single [Everyday, Kacchusha] had a sale of 942,475 on first. [Flying Get] and [Kaze wa Fuiteiru] both had 1,025,952 and 1,045,937 respectively.
The single has shipped over 2 million copies to shops, and who knows maybe slowly they will reach the 2 million mark?
