Aoppana sales report...  
Sales for 2 days:

x -> 1 -> 1   Kanjani∞ (Aoppana) - 104,797 + 49,044 = 153,841
x -> 2 -> 2   EXILE TRIBE (24karats TRIBE OF GOLD) - 81,630 + 33,322 = 114,952

Note: Numbers in copies, all versions included.

For comparison (as of this year's):

Ai deshita。 - 103,158 + 75,452 = 178,610
ER - 172,299 + 72,812 = 245,111

Well it dropped a lot, under 50k even! No doubt because of the heavy purchasing on the first day. Also, I've read that some stores are already out of stock since yesterday, and based on experience, the re-stocking will only occur on Friday nights and Saturdays, so we can expect the numbers continue to drop. 

Compared to their other singles from last year though, Aoppana has already done better:

Tsubusa ni Koi (1st week) - 152,859
365 Nichi Kazoku (1st week) - 158,141
My Home (1st week) - 158,060
T.W.L/Yellow Pansy Street (2 days) - 84,325 + 46,587 = 130,912 (1st week: 200,816)

So I hope, it's still enough to make it to 200k in the first week.

Thanks so much for sharing!

Does that mean, once that restocking is done, sales will go up a bit?
(Can't believe it's already out of stock! Did they underestimate the sales numbers?)

maybe, maybe not...some people may just buy on impulse, and once when they didn't find it, they'll just forget about it until they go to the stores again, whenever that is...

and yeah, seems like they under-estimate this single...they probably expected this one to do the same as the 2-version singles from last year...the booklet probably didn't affect much, since fans always buy both versions anyway...

Thanks for the stats and your analysis :) I hope they'll do good with this one no matter yesterday's results...
