Watanabe Mayu's 3rd solo single [Hikaru Monotachi] has landed 1st place in the Oricon daily sales charts in its first day on sale. It sold a total of 40,187 copies.
Mayuyu was facing tough competition from 2nd place Generations with 33,232 copies, 3rd place Momoiro Clover Z with 31,889 copies, and 4th place Shoujo Jidai (Girls Generation/SNSD). Will she be able to fend them off in the weekly sales battle?
This single sold more than Mayu's 2nd single [Otona Jelly beans], which sold 38,109 copies on day one, but not more than her 1st solo single [Synchro Tokimeki] which sold 50,145 copies.
[Hikaru Monotachi] is her 2nd first day sales number one after [Synchro Tokimeki], but neither previous single achieved first place in the weekly sales.
Congratulations to Mayuyu for first day number one! I'm glad her sales are increased from her 2nd single as well. Good luck to her in the weekly chart.
