Argh! Ume-chan saying iinda and tilting her head on Mste perf!
If Kiichan is back, I'm very happy for her
I thought close-up of Yamashita at the end of the bridge will be one of the best moment of every performance of this song...
Turns out we got ourselves a new one
Kazumin was smiling like a proud mum when Ume-chan sang her line. 3 gen members are invading Senbatsu now lol
Kumo ni Nareba ii by Presso
Nogizaka46's 20th Single (Synchroncity) (3rd Week Sales)
Week 3: 30,093 (1,244,603) (3rd)
Second highest 3rd week after Nigemizu (which was 37k)
1.4 seems plausible.. they have set up a tall order for the next single though,
now.. can they sell their next album 1 M? They didn't get much improvement for their album sales.. around 300-400K... maybe the next one will be their "best" album?
Can one estimate what the maximum amounts of copies sold for handshakes would be?
They are at 42 members at the moment according to wiki. How many slots have been assigned in total? And could one assume 500 tickets per slot of 90 minutes?
Its interesting because these numbers are extremely impressive, and are possibly associated with higher casual approval than AKB48 in their 2010/11 era.
It should be more than that tbvh. With 540 tickets per slot (10 seconds each), they have 496k maximum capacity (910 slots). I dont believe that they sell 700k normal CDs even if the top 3 members only do national HS.
But if the numbers are correct (500k maximum handshake capacity), the rest of the CDs must be sold for different reasons, right? Maybe people tend to desire all different editions or there are other gimmicks. Or they sell hundreds of thousands of units to non-event-goers and non-wota. Which is interesting, because i always thought these folks would rather buy digitally.
Anyhow, i am interested in explaining the really huge gap between sold copies and max handshakes.
I have no doubt about them selling 300-400k normal CDs but 700k is just not realistic with the current age.
They probably oversold alot of tickets by shrinking the time per ticket to 7-8 seconds (thats 20-30% more sales) and add an estimate of huge bunch of tickets that will be thrown away as alot of fans cannot switch lanes/make it in time as usual. This goes for all 48/46 releases tbh
well , i dont have any idea where those 700k copies will go anyway , but in my point of view , i registered the IHS tickets , but i was also buy the A-B-C-D type too , and there's plenty of wotas also buying those regular type in purpose for collecting the photos.
regarding the non event goers or non-wota segment , i thought that in japan the cultures about buying cd was still exist , even non idol musician was still promoting their physical cd in chainstore like tsutaya / tower records ( also afaik , johny's asc groups doesnt sell their songs digitally ? ) that's make an assumption that buying cd for the non wota / non-event-goers still possible , even tho i dont think they will bought all the A-B-C-D type tho. idk about west cultures since i dont follow any western musician , but imho in japanese culture buying CD was stilll a pretty common.
Didn't someone say national handshakes sell some pretty good chuck of the sales? Example.. Ikoma didn't participate in individual HS sales for this single but she did in the national hs event... many fans came/bought the cds to say their goodbyes to her. and these sales can't be measured.. only management know how many copies are sold during this event, no?
This is true but it's also accounted in what we call "casual sales" for other groups too, since NHS tickets don't come in the fortune/theatre editions.
the new single's uniform 1st appearance is in yoshimotozaka46's show, isn't it?
or it has appeared in other shows as well?
Which one is the Synchronicity outfit? I thought it was the one with the white-silver stripes?
the one matsumura wear in yoshimotozaka46's show is light purple outfit.
i'm not really sure, because i feel like i've seen that kind of uniform before.
