HKT48 2nd Single [Melon Juice] First Week Sales

HKT48's 2nd Single [Melon Juice], released on September 4, finished its first week and ranked number 1 in the Oricon Weekly Charts with 268,897 copies sold. First Day sales alone amounted to 222,984 copies which put HKT48 also on top for the Daily Charts.

These sales are a slight increase compared to the previous single [Suki!Suki!Skip!] which sold 250,147 copies in its first week. HKT48 is now only the second female group who topped the Oricon Charts consecutively with their first two singles since debut (the first group being NMB48).

Only a small increase in sales, but well, better than decreasing sales. Overall these numbers are fine, so nothing to complain for me.
