AKB48 35th Single [Mae Shika Mukanee] First Day Sales
AKB48 released their 35th single [Mae Shika Mukanee] on February 26th. The single which is the last one with Oshima Yuko sold 970, 413 copies on its first day and clearly took the number 1 spot in the Oricon Daily Charts.
Sales went up from the Janken single [Suzukake Nanchara] which sold 916,912 copies on its first day, but they are lower than those of the three singles before that: [Sayonara Crawl], [Koisuru Fortune Cookie] and [Heart Ereki] all passed the one-million-mark on day one.
[Mae Shika Mukanee] marks the start of an AKB48 Group release rush: HKT48 will release their 3rd single two weeks later on March 12th, SKE48 follows on March 19th and NMB48 on March 26th.
