AKB48 35th Single [Mae Shika Mukanee] First Week Sales

AKB48's 35th single [Mae Shika Mukanee] was released on  February 26th and has finished its first week. The single sold 1,091,406 copies making AKB48 once again the top of the weekly Oricon Ranking.

As was the case for the first day sales, numbers went up from the Janken single [Suzukake Nanchara] which sold 1,033,136 in week one. But sales of [Mae Shika Mukanee] don't reach the sales numbers of the three singles before that: [Sayonara Crawl], [Koisuru Fortune Cookie] and [Heart Ereki].

Nevertheless, it is the 15th time in a row that an AKB48 single sold more than a million copies in its first week.

In the Soundscan Charts, the different types take ranks 1~6, with the limited editions on the first three positions. As total, they sold 236,005 copies. The difference between this and the Oricon sales is 855,401 which should be the number of theater editions sold.
