    Actually this time round the promotion is HUGE due to their tour concert in Japan during the release.

    Hello jinx, may I inform you that you missed out May 8th? In Japan sales always start rolling out 1 day before actual release date.

    Woah; even Arashi? The Hallyu wave has certainly gotten there. @tumbling42 - The sale figures might be unknown. It is not entirely the poster's fault. And even if it was a camparison, I thought of it just as a mention. Please don't take offense.

    What a bias report, completely written from a fan POV. Since you just mentioned about sales figures, why there's no mention about the sales attained by the other two, yet you compared them so strongly.

    still not enough for #1 weekly, though they should pull the same trick like NMB and have handshake events as well XD maybe they could get around 200k though still not enough for even #2 though...

    What, 11 versions? Seriously? Going overboard aren't we? Anyone have a link to a list of the version differences? Or is it just cosmetic? Anyway, as said many times already, daily chart doesn't mean anything. However, the overall -total- is pretty impressive, but if they were seriously going for #1 it's stupid to schedule against Arashi (and frankly even NMB), and fans of those groups are the type to get theirs first day. Even 48 fans knew they weren't going to be able to top Arashi with their 3rd string in a head-to-head- it's a lost cause for pretty much anyone to beat Arashi or AKB on the singles chart.
