First things first:
Uchouten LOVE sold 29,328 copies on its first week, becoming S/mileage's best first week ever!
Kumi: Omedetou Sumaireji!
The single scored #5 on Oricon's Weekly Rank. It's safe to predict that this will become their best selling single next week. For comparison, here are the figures for their previous singles:
