    Despite the underwhelming sales, youtube views are doing great and surclassing AKB's single. It means as I said, that despite diehard wotas, general people is more interested on 46 groups nowadays. I'm pretty sure on the year end chart of the Japan Hot 100, which measure songs popularity, it will be higher than AKB's one.
    Even if Nogi is declining is still doing better than AKB on popularity

    2019 YEAR END CHART
    16- Nogizaka46: Sing Out!
    19- Nogizaka46: Yoake Made Tsuyougaranakutemoii
    24- Nogizaka46: Kaerimichi wa Toomawari Shitakunaru
    45- AKB48: Jiwaru Days
    47- AKB48: Sustainable
    53 - AKB48: NO WAY MAN

    And, another positive thing, some users said "you can change idea about the single after some listenings" and I though "not gonna happen" but I have to admit it, now I like "Shiawase no Hogoshoku". I mean, it could've been better, but it's still a good single this one. I can't pretend always the top. Now I enjoy listening to it and it's not gonna be a skip for me like the 2019 singles.

    It's just a transitive song, as you say on the top is not good but not bad either, nogizaka46 trying a new rhythm is not a surprise anyways, we just have to be positive, enjoy the song, and keep supporting those girls, there are going to be a lot of songs in the future, with better lyrics and all stuff.

    800k+ first day is normal for Nogi and 1M first day is normal for AKB. One day nogi may hit 900k-1M first day but it’s good they still have room for growth. Also I’m impressed they managed to still hit their usual benchmark with the lack HS events due to Rona

    I prefer Nogi to not hit 1 million sales in a week and have a decent number of members than they hitting 1 milion sales thanks to hundreds of filler unknown members who are there just to be handshakes slaves.

    Day zero sales are all preorders, tickets were sold while Corona was still budding and were delivered. But the post-day-zero sales were abysmal.

    This isn't intended to be AKB fourty-hate, I'm just commenting on numbers.
    I don't think the other comments have been *that* bad either, but no one wants to see their idols being scathed and I think we can be nicer than that :)

    I just hope the situation can be back to normal soon.
    I want to see them doing HS and live on the stage again.

    Just saying that their members aren't well-known and you hardly see/hear them anymore outside of Akihabara. They don't even have their own flagship variety show. So its surprising that they still have the fans to be able to sell 1,000,000 copies first day. Pretty much just agreeing with the person I was replying to.

    That's a much clearer explanation than yesterday's post, which was easy to misinterpret. Thanks for clarifying.

    Oh wow. Today was the first time listening to the single, and I am really, really loving it. Yeah the individual songs may be weak, but taken as a whole it is really good. I'm listening to it from type A to regular edition and each song contributes mightily to the feeling of the member's love for Maiyan and for Nogizaka46. And of course that last song, seemingly out of place is so fun right after I See... then I hit play all over again!

    Hmm... this single for me is just as good as Synchronicity was. Very cohesive in sound and feeling from song to song. It really has impressed me.

    Ditto to that! I think this is a strong single, almost on-par with Synchronicity. Only Fantastic song I can't really digest, the rest are all loop-worthy.
    Even the title track has grown so much on me, without realizing it keeps playing in my head.
