AKB48's "Everyday, Kachuusha" sells nearly 1 million copies on its first day

AKB48's 21st single, "Everyday, Kachuusha" has sold nearly a million copies on its first day according to Oricon's Daily Singles Chart.

The single sold 942,475 copies, easily beating Team Amuse!! and TOKIO, who sold 55,916 and 9,570 respectively. "Everyday, Kachuusha"'s sale are nearly identical to the first week sales of AKB48's previous single, "Sakuraki ni Narou," which sold 942,479 copies in its first week and 655,344 in its first day. 

The release is now the record holder of the highest-selling first day since Oricon started publishing daily numbers in March 2009.

love these girls! I might even forgive them for not knowing the difference between "every day" and "everyday"!

I ordered type A and B, but now the airports over here have shut down because of the volcano eruption in Iceland and I'm worried they won't arrive here in time for me to vote. T.T
This song has grown on me a lot, I think I prefer it to Ponytail Shoushou tbh. Glad it did well. (even tho it was pretty obvious it would.)

.... *waves* is from Iceland

XD Actually some people are saying it has stopped around yesterday so.... I hope you'll get them in time! :D (Also, a lot of people here think it's baloney to shut down the airports)

I suppose most of those sales are the dudes buying for the PV, xD.

not even the slightly impressed, to be honest.
the song is far from as good as their singles last year and the b-sides on this aren't even worth listening to.
and surely wota wouldn't buy 7 boxes of this single if there wasn't an election coming up.

Congratulations to awesome girls! The song is good and all the PVs are flawless! *____*
Now I hope Tomochin will be at least 3rd or better 2nd in elections~
