AKB48 31st Single [Sayonara Crawl] 1st Day Sales

AKB48's 31st Single [Sayonara Crawl] was released on May 22 and the first day sales amount to 1,450,881 copies. Not surprising, AKB48 ranked first in the Oricon Daily Charts.

These are the highest first day sales for AKB48 ever. The previous record was set by [Manatsu no Sounds Good] with 1,170,554. Sales made a huge jump from the prevous single [So long!] which sold 817,530 copies on its first day. Singles containing voting tickets always sell more but given the slight downward sales trend of the previous singles this is a surprising sales number.

This time voting tickets are included in all types including the Theater Edition so we can expect a huge amount of votes for the ongoing election.
