Not #1, but a tremendous achievement. Posts on 2channel claim that it is the highest sales ever by any anime-related song in its first week:

GSD (Fiction Junction Yuuka) 45,064 2005/9/22
Nanoha StrikerS (Mizuki Nana) 38,538 2007/4/18 #2
Code Geass 24,494 2006/11/8
Mahou Sensei Negima 45,324 2005/5/11 #4
Haruhi ED 34,881 2006/5/10 #5

Kotoko's Hayate OP came in at #7, with sales of 20,000, which isn't too shabby either.
And I was wondering why my post concerning this on the Merchandise thread was being ignored.

Looks like the distributors learned their lesson from Hare Hare Yukai (Haruhi ED) selling out too rapidly and produced plenty in reserves just to allow the song to last that little bit longer in the chart.

As of writing, the current weekly chart is still up to May 28th, hopefully we'll see it pop into 2nd place come next week's chart.
