Nogizaka46 3rd Single [Hashire! Bicycle] 1st Day Sales

Nogizaka46's new single [Hashire! Bicycle] sold 150,056 on it's release day yesterday, claiming the #1 spot on the Oricon Daily Charts. It also managed to outdo the group's previous 2 singles [Guruguru Curtain] and [Oide Shampoo], which sold 84,905 and 111,222 copies in the first day respectively.

Nogizaka has been doing really well, the rise in sales is a breath of fresh air since most of the groups and subunits under Aki-P's umbrella have experienced declining sales. I wonder if they will still keep growing and catch up to SKE48 or NMB48's sales.
