    Nah, it's probably people not wanting to buy more copies.

    Sustainable sold 7,057 on the second day and there was no pandemic back then.

    Well, where ever in Tokyo recently is much less crowded than usual, also happening at Tower Records and Tsutaya that I went to.
    So yeah, that 1500ish gap from sustainable might be because of the corona.
    I went to Tower Records on the day of the release and yes many general people still buying one or two copies each.

    Wotas will buy since preorder for HS tix, photocard, or that canceled group photo session gimmick.

    . . . It's kinda funny, the idea of wotas buying up the single for tickets for handshake events that are not gonna be happening anytime soon.

    That said, glad the single's done well, in spite of the circumstances.

    Makes me wonder ... are there numbers for the different types?
    As a Miichan wota, I might argue the Type A is a double A-side, that might have some extra pull

    There was a saying between wotas...better you regret holding tickets (with postponement, graduation, cancellation, etc.), than regret not holding tickets (when the event come and you cannot even enter the venue).

    I would say it might sell better, but more because YuuNaa factor than the other way around. Sorry.

    AKB48 performed 2 songs: Give me five! and Shitsuren, arigatou with Omori Maho under for Suda Akari. It’s kind of weird for me since they perform GMF without the band but I’m glad that they give Miichan and Yukirin as WCenter. Then we have full ver of the new song which it’s very unusual and incredible. I didn’t expect to see the full choreography after AKBShow! was cancelled.

    I’m surprised Shitsuren, Arigatou was performed in full instead of the short one as usual

    It means "We love to watch lolis" in Spanish. It's Xitabata in Bilbao though.

    Jitabata means this kind of movements of arms and legs.
    It came to mean suffering from not being as expected.

    Serious answer:
    じた ばた [1]

    ( 副 ) スル

    ① 手足をむやみに動かして抵抗するさま。ばたばた。 「 -(と)もがく」 「 -すると殺してしまうぞ」

    ② (現状から逃れようとして)あわてふためくさま。 「いまさら-してもはじまらない」
    Tl;dr:
    1. Flailing arms and legs
    2. Trying (struggling) to escape from the current situation

    Jitabata

    Oh, oh, oh, oh.
    Oh, oh, oh, oh.
    Oh, oh, oh, oh.
    Ooooooooo.

    Can we leave the wasteland as it is?
    It's the passion we had back then.
    If you say you've lost it, that's fine
    You can stand on you own

    now
    Is the rain clouds in the sky hiding your ray of hope?
    Even in this worst situation
    You don't have to back down.
    It's our destiny to be here.

    If not us, who's gonna fight for it?
    The robbed dreams, love and pride.
    Come on, let's go regain it!
    We're going to have to die trying here.
    Rollin' and gettin' muddy.
    Remind yourself of something important.
    Be a responsible adult.
    To the things you don't like (to the things you don't like), say no (say no)
    noisily
    There's nothing to do but to lose yourself.

    Oh, oh, oh, oh.
    Oh, oh, oh, oh.
    Oh, oh, oh, oh.
    Ooooooooo.

    There is nothing left of the glorious days
    The flag that was lowered have been stepped on, faded by time.
    You're just lamenting.

    Oh, yeah.
    The wind screamed and tore down the trees.
    The past is not the answer.
    My only regret is that I don't do anything.
    You can't blame yourself.
    I don't care if I die.

    If we don't do it, who's going to start it?
    I will never lose my hear as long as I can see. I don't want to lose again.
    If I die here, pick up my bones, forget about the bright days, start a new era from scratch!
    Let's talk about the beauty of teenage innocence noisily saying
    I want to do this,m (I want to do this!) I want to do that (I want to do that!)
    Let's talk about ideals.

    It's pouring rain, and we're drenched.
    You're going to have to hit them.
    You're all bruised up.
    It's all about the future I've always wanted.

    If we don't do it, who's going to tell them?
    The robbed dreams, love and pride.
    Come on, let's go regain it!
    We're going to have to die trying here.
    Rollin' and gettin' muddy.
    Remind yourself of something important.
    Be a responsible adult.
    To the things you don't like (to the things you don't like), say no (say no)
    noisily
    There's nothing to do but to lose yourself.

    Oh, oh, oh, oh.
    Oh, oh, oh, oh.
    Oh, oh, oh, oh.
    Ooooooooo.

    Keep your hands and feet as wide as you can
    I will live my life until all of my limbs gave up
    My take on translating the song from the lyrics on the CD jacket. Credits to Gernnon and Eitonesia for cross reference on their version.

    For less than serious answer, see above :lol:
