AKB48’s Overwhelming Sales on the Oricon Charts


AKB48 newest single Ponytaill to Chouchou took the #1 spot on the Oricon Weekly Charts selling 513,000 copies. This makes it the biggest first week sales for a female idol group since Morning Musume’s “Ren’ai Revolution 21″ in 2000 (515,000 copies), and biggest first week sales for a female artist since since Utada Hikaru’s “Can You Keep a Secret?” in 2001 (784,000 copies).

This is pretty awesome news to hear if you’re an AKB48 fan like me, although, I’m still relatively new to them. I’m just glad to see AKB’s popularity rising.
