i write this post to express my gratitude over AKB’s success to sell 1 mil copies of their latest single, Flying Get in a first day.
first of all, let us fans celebrate it with popcorn and watching special 18-min movie from this single!
okay.now i want to share this feeling with everyone there.
i’m really excited with this number of sale and i hope it will break another record.
this feeling is same when AKB released Sakura no Shiori last year. That was my first AKB48’s single and at that time, i’m very happy when they sold about 200k.
then, their next single also sold more than that. after that, all their singles topped the chart with amazing sales and they keep breaking one record after another until they released Everyday,Kachuusa. this single got a lot of criticism. EbiKachu managed to surpass Mr Children in all-time single ranking for the first time. but, many people doubt it because there was a voting ticket include in it. Not only that, as the single was released in summer, haters said AKB management tried to sell the members by wearing bikinis so that fans would buy it.
And now, after the election, AKB released their single again:without any voting ticket, handshake event, bikinis and with a bad cover for the single.
Surprisingly, they are able to sell it more than EbiKachu. Much more better with a million copies. You get it??
Before this single is released, i wonder how much they will sell this time. since they already sold million copies, i wonder this will be their sign for declining. but, i’m happy they still on their way.
tbh, i’m not ready for AKB to lose their popularity and have declining on their sale. i want to be excited when they release their single just like today. i want them to break a record and impress the fans. but i know, it will not be forever.
even so, i’m glad to be their fan. i hope i can be their fans forever.
