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.
