I don't think people were ready for sexy and cool s/mileage. I know I wasn't, despite the fact I enjoyed this single. It just didn't hit home for me. I feel bad they are so low ranking and I wish I could help them out now, but I'll need to wait to purchase my single.

Mystery Night! / Eighteen Emotion was S/mileage's highest first week sales ever.

Let's wait out the week before jumping to any conclusions.

I don't think any single was majorly affected by oricon's decision to not count oversea sales. :hmmm: Plus, I feel like you (directing to BG) just don't understand the situation.

I honestly think it's because hardcore fans don't like the song. They want a fun song and Yattaruchan, Ee ka?! and Eighteen Emotion delivered that. They don't mind a mature song, but they don't want a whole single of the group that is suppose to be smiling all the time sing deep songs.

Box set sales are about half of their sales (while for Momusu, it's the majority of their sales). Mystery Night's tuesday sales was at 16,238, which it's not bad. From the looks of it, almost all the competition on day one looks like they were all close. So maybe they made near 16k time time around. Who knows.

Like I said a few posts above, they are a group that heavily depends on promotions. They are currently working their butts trying to do all of current release events. People need to buy the single on-spot in order to get in the signing events, mini live events, or handshake events. Like JonCC said, it's best to wait until the weekly sales instead since S/mileage the weekly sales usually don't say much.

Yeah I'm just sitting back and going to watch the week play out before I have any strong reactions.

Though honestly for me... I haven't really posted much this time around because neither song were super hits with me. I like them both as songs and I like they sound really nice, they're far from bad, but neither really caught me like S/mileage has been recently for me. I adored Yattaruchan, Eeka and Mystery Night, but from the very beginning I wasn't super excited about either of the songs on this single. I think Chikyuu was supposed to be perceived as the S/mileage-esque song, but kinda failed at it.

Tbh...I found both songs really boring. :( It's too bad because usually I really like S/mileage songs.

I really liked them, but I've talked about how much I prefer S/mileage singing "S/mileage" songs before, even if I don't -like- the song. I think one of these should have been coupled with a S/mileage song, and saved the other one for the next single.

This means nothing about sales, I don't like to talk about sales till the end of the week, but just my opinion on S/mileage itself XD

But..... they did get #2 so that's good. :P
I audibly said "YAY! YAY!" when I saw them at #2 the oricon app. :P
Ok so now that we have the full week, shall we all guess what they sold?
...I'll say around 28k seems logical 28k - 30k
