What may have helped is Koharu's appearance at the World Hobby Fair. See this link: http://www.dengekionline.com/data/news/2007/1/24/5180aed7046f36ce029b7831bb8bd5bf.html

It simply amazing. Every week another 1500 kids buy the single. So cool. Yeah, it seems she was one of the most, or the most visited in the Hobby Fair! This Kirarin thing has been the best thing to happen to H!P recently :D

I have seen Balalaika all the week in JBook daily rank. Well, it's every week in there. And surpassing Normal Ed. of Asia singles. I think this will be another +1000 copies sold for Koharu. We will know tomorrow or Thursday :D

and she needed to sell just 6 more copies to get 100th place and she would have 14 consecutive weeks in top100 (first time since Meccha holiday 4 and half years ago T_T

though, just 840 copies left to exceed Namida and Miki's Romantic Ukare mode :D

If she keeps this up there's even a chance she'll re-enter the top 100 next week.

Even if she was out of top 100, this has been the most fun I've had following a H!P single's sales :lol:

After being outside the top 50 in the daily rankings for more than a week, Balalaika bounces back with a 41st and 33rd place last Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Keep track of all the Balalaika ranking news on the Balalaika ranking thread on the Morning Coffee subforum of 2ch.

Balalaika is really amusing me, as a single that is XD You think you're done with it, that it's over and "oh she had a good run, I'm so proud of you Koharu~" and the single bounces back XD

Still it's kinda impressive so yay for Koharu I guess!

Early weakly ranking reports say Balalaika is 77th. Sales will be known tomorrow. The daily ranking for Monday is 44th.

The Japanese fans on 2ch are as amazed as we are btw. They keep uttering the word "miracle" to describe Koharu. Rightly so if you ask me.

Maybe there's a subliminal message in the single that makes people who hear it go out to buy more/encourage others to buy a copy XD

Still, if the Japanese fans are amazed, then all has been said XD

I mean, I loved this song at first but I got sick of it really quickly.  I'm amazed people are STILL buying it!  

Go Koharu basically.

I've had to give it a break every once in a while, but then after a while I'll listen to it again and forget why I gave up on it XD;;;
