The 1st day sales for the debut single, [Kibou ni Tsuite], from AKB48 subunit NO NAME are out. NO NAME consists of the seiyuu (voice actors) from the anime series [AKB0048]. They sold 18,442 copies on day one, placing #3 in the Oricon Daily sales charts. Second place Mizuki Nana, sold 23,921 copies. The anime series itself has proven successful enough to spawn a second season, coming in 2013.
Quite low first day sales for NO NAME. Compared to all other AKB48 related releases this year, this is only higher than Wasamin's solo single and DiVA's latest (although that was released a day earlier than is standard and sold a lot more on day two). This also sold quite a lot less than the Team Dragon one-off sub-unit.
