^I wanted to wait a week before uploading it, it might cost some sales  :lol: j/k.

edit: SMAP is really gaining on them with another 30K daily sales

*1 30,819 SMAP
*2 13,840 AKB48

AKB Total: 71296
SMAP Total: 61720

These are the figures after two days. I really hope AKB can get their first #1...

AKB48 outsells SMAP on first day

Thu, August 27, 2009 (5:26am EDT)

As evidence of their growing popularity, the latest single by idol group AKB48 ranked #1 on the daily charts, outperforming even SMAP's newest song. According to Oricon, AKB48's "Iiwake Maybe" had estimated sales of more than 57,000 copies in its first day, compared to less than 31,000 copies for SMAP's "Sotto Kyutto / Superstar." Both were released on August 26.

Before this, AKB48 had never reached #1 on the daily or weekly charts. At this rate, "Iiwake Maybe" is on track to become their first chart-topper when the weekly sales numbers are published next week. SMAP, on the other hand, has already put out 21 number-one singles, including their last 10 releases before "Sotto Kyutto." Meanwhile, popular anime series "K-On!" occupied the #3 to #5 slots with three new character singles. Last month, the show managed to become the first anime series to reach #1 with a character album.

Today's sales:

#1 SMAP - 16,407
#2 AKB48 - 7,063

Total:
AKB48:78,359
SMAP: 78,127

The suspense is killing me.. they need some handshake events ASAP!

They need some TV promo too! :O

I do wonder if the names up high are testing how they'd do with little promotion...

Current situation:

SMAP: - 30,901 + 30,819 + 16,407 + 9,599 = 87,726
AKB48: - 57,456 + 13,840 + 7,063 + 3,738 = 82,097

Ah well, I would've been epic to beat SMAP, but I guess we can't complain  :)

I hope the single will reach 100K. 10Nen Sakura has a first week sale of 66,226 and ended with a total around 104k, so I guess it should be possible.

Beating SMAP the first day was already epic  :)

CD Japan always has the group pic, the generic one.

It's the only site I can order from which has a bonus, so I'm happy. I agree it's a bit plain, but otherwise I may end up with a pic of 3 girls I'm not that interested in.

Btw, just watched the dvd. I totally cried during that documentary footage  :nervous. I could feel the tension and relief. That #1 announcement was quite the anti-climax. Everyone in the world knew who would get it  :lol:

After all the hoopla and conspiracy theories of not including handshake event based CDs, I'll say 90,000+ is a good number.

I can't remember if I said this here or not but I think the high-ups wanted to see how well they could sell with just one event(the yomiuri land one) and it looks pretty good to me :D
I just hope the next song is darker for a change in pace(and having a happy b-side maybe?)
I know I shouldn't hope but I will anyway~
