My Pure·Delight – Oide Shampoo/Soredemo Suki da yo 1st Day Sales

The first day sales figures are in for the long-awaited battle between Nogizaka46’s 2nd single Oide Shampoo and Sashihara Rino’s (Sasshi) debut solo single Soredemo Suki da yo. Nogizaka46 came out in 1st place for the day with 111,222 copies sold. Sasshi finished the day in 2nd place with 56,789 copies sold.

Really impressed with the sales numbers for both Nogizaka46 and Sasshi. I think the huge promotion of the Nogizaka46/Sasshi feud worked out really well. I know some people feel that this result is a disappointment for Sasshi, but the 56,789 copies sold is more than the 1st day sales of Itano Tomomi’s (Tomochin) last two singles and Watanabe Mayu (Mayuyu) debut single. And with the AKB election coming up, I think Sasshi’s fans might have been saving up their money to vote for her. And I think the result is more about how Nogizaka46 is gaining a lot of popularity and I’m happy to see it. A really nice increase from the 1st day sales of Guruguru Curtain. Let’s see how the sales numbers for the rest of the week come out.
