    HKT has a Kanto concert tour scheduled for late March and I've been trying to get a ticket for their show in Ashikaga in Tochigi Prefecture on 3/26 as the itinerary for my Japan trip next month will take me through that area. However even though I've applied in two rounds in the Ticket Center I've been unsuccessful which would seem to suggest that the show is selling out.

    (although such is my previous experience with the Ticket Center maybe it's impossible to assume anything!)

    I'm hoping for sales increase as well.. If HKT is a group containting just 4 members, that number of sales would just feel amazing. But it's a different thing, since HKT is a big group.

    Yeah, that sounds a bit too low. What's going on with the sales numbers recently overall? This doesn't sound good... (Also checked SCANDAL's and Leo Ieiri's best album sales - they were #2 and #3 to Korean BIGBANG, but for such best albums, these numbers also sounded low - only over 10,000 and that's it! Whaaaaat????? :shock:)

    Sad to see HKT's sales still remaining about the same. Compared to the other groups, I feel like they are the only ones who are not pass their prime yet. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like they're growing either. They really need to get a breakthrough hit now otherwise their girls will start dropping like flies and they'll be stuck performing Melon Juice for the next 10 years.

    I don't mind the "stagnant" sale, because if CD sale number is the only thing you use to gauge success you can become slave to it. Look to the "Million-copy single" for example. With lower numbers there is more room for error and experimentation of senbatsu as well. Members are more likely to stay because they really believe they have a chance to get in and more eager to prove themselves. I think this single is a really great prove of that. Just today, Piichan, Asuka and Shinamon was on ANN doing promotion work. 4th gen were going around stores helping the "Pops". Mirun and Hana were doing CD opening streams. At least among members there are alot of enthusiasm in this single.

    That's good for members who have fighting chance of being in senbatsu but what about girls who are already senbatsu locks who want to do better? I guess they can fight for space in AKB then lol

    Similar? Yes. The same? No.

    In the PV, the girls have pleated skirts and no black stockings. Also, the skirts in the PV are a bit longer (below the knee).

    Lastly, the image is 853 pixels vertical. Too large. Resize or thumbnail. Otherwise a mod will delete it.

    the gap between Oricon numbers and Billboard is getting ridiculous...
    according to Billboard Bagutte Iijan sold 302,582 copies.

    http://www.billboard-japan.com/sp/d_news/detail/47597

    as for the sales... dunno, I am kinda past the stage when I am bothered by sales. as long as the sales are enough to keep them afloat and as long as I am happy with girls, their activities, atmosphere and group overall, it'a all good.

    ps: cuteness overload!

    Well, that is ridiculous difference. I thought at best it will be around 50k. That is more than 50% increase vs Oricon numbers!
    I also agree with you. As long as the sales is enough to keep them running, then it is enough. If people think 48 sister group can compete with AKB, Nogi, or even Keyaki, they should probably erase that thought. They are not on an even footing with them. Probably if they get a song like 365 or Silent Majority, it might propel them to the top... momentarily. Sustaining it will be difficult.

    lmao

    And with Oricon it was something like...

    Saikou - 210k
    Bagutte - 195k

    Oricon is getting ridiculous.
