yeah, and base on typical AKB sub group and solo does nowadays, 100,000 units give or take in first 2 weeks would be a safe guess. At current state of singles sales, 70,000+ well be enough to take the top spot on Oricon Chart as long as there isn't a major release from the main 48 groups or top artists like Exile, Mr. Children, SMAP, Kinki Kids, Arashi, etc.

AKB always sell well. Single sales will be more easy to predict than BD sales...Most of their sub unit clear 100k easily first week. Not Yet do 200k, even the lowest selling group, DIVA get 70k on first week..........which make me want to slap a b*tch tbh.
This sub unit similar to Warota7, the other sub unit Mayuyu is center, so I'm guessing around 80k which is Warota7 usually sales I think? I'm not a fan so not sure. Since SKE's Yagami Kumi is popular too, maybe around 90k

Mayuyu is receiving a huge boost, I can't see it not selling well.
The only problem is if fans have the money for it....
August is a pretty expensive month for 48 fans.

Well I heard Japanese fans and foreign fans say the song is good so it won't do too bad. They hate the uniforms tho :P

In my opinion, 70k - 100k is not a problme for AKB units but this is an anime music CD. I wonder how will the fans response.

Any idea,what song will be in the CD besides the OP and the ED?

I meant Mayuyu MK3. I don't think Chieri's design was inspired by Mayuyu, not even in the early stage.

The original design obviously not, but I heard the final version was based on her.


EDIT:
Did I ever post Chieri's original chara design here? It's surprising how much it changed in the final stage.

The catch here is that this single is hyped and promoted like a regular single, being an anime theme song was more a a by-product. This has also starting to be a trend for many single. For example, OP/ED songs for mainstream anime like OP, Gundam, rarely got treated as just "anime songs"

Besides, it's not like AKB hasn't done anime songs before, one of their best selling sub group song was from the one-time group, Team Dragon's, single acted as the ED and the main theme for Dragon Ball Kai.

Here are some of past sales number of AKB's ACG related songs:
[Highest Oricon Rank/Total Sales before dropped off Chart]

2009:

No3b: Tane, ED for Birdy the Mighty Decode: 02 [#9/16,801]

2010:
Queen & Elizabeth: Love War, insert song for Kamen Rider W [#4/31,888]
Team Dragon: Kokoro no Hane, ED theme for DB Kai [#1/146,160]

2011:

No3b: Answer, 1st ED for Beelzebub [#2/108,831]
French Kiss: Kakkowarui I Love You, 1st OP for Sket Dance [#2/143,612]

2012:

Diva: Lost the Way, theme for Ultraman Saga [#3, 77,417]


Now, Tane was during 2009 when when AKB was just getting its break so the fact it still made top 10 was impressive, considering that the song had little mainstream promotion. But even then that is a pretty good figure for an anime related song.

Interestingly the draft version Chieri looked like a ringer for 15-year-old Jurina Matsui, SKE48's helicopter gunship (I call her as such because she's hot, athletic and well-armed to the teeth like an Apache gunship that she's that team's public face of excellence more than the rest of her fellows).

Wow, what spurned the creators to make so radical a change for Chieri? Them casting the actual Mayuyu? Not that I mind, as new Chieri is like 100x more moe.

That's what I heard. Though who knows if it's true.

Tonight is finally the climax! Don't take your eyes off the screen until the very end! Be sure to keep watching until the sponsors message after the last commercial break! Enjoy!


I think I'll let that speak for itself.

Four minutes and counting. Time to make some coffee.

BTW, it's raining down here, so I think it's going to be a Night of Tears.



EDIT: BLOODY HELL IT BLEW EVERYTHING AWAY! IT'S A TYPHOON...

Sure, it "could" be anything, but I'll choose to believe that Thomas Romain knows what he's talking about, considering he's actually working on the show, rather than making wild unsubstantiated guesses. :P

Edit: Btw, the teaser is on the official site now: http://akb0048.jp

The next season will focus on the next AKB0048 General Election.
