1st day sales: 146,813
Not bad, since they haven't shipped 8th-10th round HS yet (next Friday).
Not bad at all, I'd say.
Yeah... I'm somewhat relieved. I know NGT fans are saving for ssk but looking at their 3rd single 1st day sales made me sad...
I haven't followed HKT probably for the last couple of years, just watched their latest PV and omg where are Meru, Mio and Haruppi?
Haruppi took another hiatus, Mio injured her leg , and Meru on third (or fourth?) row
Haruppi and Mio are in medical leave. Meru's 3rd row, behind Hana
That's honestly not bad considering the timing and all.
That's actually not bad.
They should get to 200k with no problem.
NGT is gonna have all her girls rank, right?
this is bad... for their ssk ranks
I'd prefer fans to focus on the girls own group rather than neglect it for a fleeting rank. Good ranks are fun and happy and all, but I can't help but feel annoyed with NGT fans tactics. Like request hour, it's a nice display but ultimately AKB management isn't going to give any special preference to NGT over other sister groups. Regardless of NGT ranks, AKB was eventually going to put their ace and one or two more girls in every single anyway. There isn't really an end game for them here, other than an insane display of money. So I'm glad about HKT's sales, it being around the sales of their last few singles is worrying for ssk, but I'm still glad about it...
But I also understand NGTs tactics if what they want is to get their girls be known out of the niche fandom.
Ogiyuka appeared on the news after snatching first in the prelims and I’m sure that’s helped her getting gigs on her own (correct me if I’m wrong tho).
Ohwell, we’ll see in a month.
Day 2 sales: 7620 (154,433)
Billboard still haven't publish Soundscan figures yet, I think they are skipping to the weekly sales. Anyways I expect huge drop from previous single.
release event @ LINE LIVE (180502)
Day 3 sales: 4,973 (159,406)
Day 4 sales: - (less than 2,715).
"Hayaokuri Calendar" performance at Buzz Rhythm today
[Mod deleted dead link]
NGT boosted around 20k since then which they are sitting at 125K in week 3.
I'm not too confident if HKT can reach 200k if they can't reach at least 180k by week 3. So will see.
