NMB48 4th Single [Nagiichi] 1st Day Sales

NMB48's 4th Single [Nagiichi] was released on May 9th, and it sold  231,200 copies on its first day, ranking on #2 in the Oricon Daily Charts. First day sales dropped by aprroximately 50, 000 copies compared to  [Junjou U-19] , which sold 280,367 on its first day, and so NMB48 had to give way to Arashi who took the Daily Number 1 spot with 250,415 copies sold.

All 3 NMB48 singles so far ranked first in the Oricon Weekly Ranking, but it will be tough for the girls to continue this series. Arashi usually sells well over the whole week, while x48 sales drop a lot after the first day.

It is not really surprising that Arashi ranked one, but it is surprising that Nagiichi first day sales are 50 k lower than Junjou U-19. Did the fans spent all their money to buy Manatsu no Sounds Good for the election tickets? A later shipping of some Theater version CDs, like it happened for NMB48's first two singles might be possible too.
