Who cares they be making bank! They have to feed all their members you know, every penny counts

wow, that's a really great number of first day sales. I wonder how much money they earn from this..

I can't believe they can pass Manatsu no Sound good!XD
cuz that's Acchan's last single

This is probably because the sousenkyo votes come with this single XP People who vote multiple times for their favorite probably bought more than one single.

manatsu no sounds good was last year's sousenkyo single but they broke that record which is impressive.

Would you be impressed if this was a normal single?

i didn't buy the singles this time cos I had no idea who to vote for, but i'm glad the sales went up! Can't believe they're even higher than ManaGood!

and america is wondering why they're not the largest music industry in the world anymore.....

I'm American and I'm not wondering at all.

It's a really good single too, well deserved girls!

You could build a house with the amount of CDs wasted in these election singles.

At least Japan believes in recycling.

WHAT THE FUCK IS Y'ALL'S PROBLEM WITH AKB48 RELEASING MULTIPLE VERSIONS OF A SINGLE? THAT'S THE GODDAMN MARKET RIGHT NOW AND THEY AREN'T THE ONLY IDOL GROUP DOING IT. PASSPO HAS DONE ELEVEN VERSIONS OF THEIR SINGLES, SO HAS FUDANJUKU, MORNING MUSUME REGULARLY HAS AT LEAST 5 VERSIONS OF THEIR SINGLES. EVEN THE "ARTISTS" SUCH AS AYUMI HAMASAKI AND KUMI KODA HAVE DONE MULTIPLE VERSIONS OF SINGLES.

Y'ALL ARE JUST FUCKING PRESSED THAT A MERE IDOL GROUP IS SELLING MILLIONS AND NOT SOME ESTABLISHED "ARTIST."

Just here to laugh at all the drama.

Although I don't like AKB in the slightest, there's no need for everybody to be so butt-hurt over some ridiculous comments (from both ends).
