That competition looks manageable. Also all the groups seem to be having an uptick in sales so I have high hopes! Fingers crossed !!!

Congrats!
But what happened to the Kore Kara Da choreography? The performances are a bit boring now. It was fine before. I don't get why they'd ditch the choreography.

Wadasaku looking unexpectedly cute in that last pic. I thought they'd be kind of sad as a 5-member unit but if anything they have leveled up. Possibly my favorite mainline H!P group at the moment, in spite of having a very...neutral...impression of Hamachan.

Yesterday, Konno Asami was at the Lalaport TOKYO-BAY mall with her baby when she coincidentally walked by Kobushi Factory's live performance of Melon Kinenbi's Saa! Koibito ni Narou. She thought when she heard it "Wow this song, is this a H!P event?" She took a little peek from the 2nd floor. She got nostalgic when she saw all the colored shirts. She wanted to watch more, but there are people who might recognize her. She left the spot quietly.

Kobushi Factory is ranked #2 in Release day (3/28) sales at Tower Records stores chart
https://twitter.com/TOWER_Info/status/9 ... 5279346689

Billboard Japan's first 3 days Single Sales (3/26~3/28)
#1 BiSH 40,961
#2 Kobushi Factory 31,457
#3 THE IDOLM@STER 27,120
http://www.billboard-japan.com/d_news/detail/61703

Billboard Japan first 3 days single sales comparison (previous single) :
Kobushi Factory - Shalala! Yareru Hazu sa / Ee ja nai ka Ninja nai ka 32,267

not much improvement. Its going to be a close one for the 2 spot.

----

2nd day on Oricon @ #4
https://www.oricon.co.jp/rank/js/d/2018-03-28/

BiSH dropped to #11, while IDOLM@STER moves to #1 and probably caught up to Kobushi.

Oh no! This is a bit disappointing. I hope the scandals haven't hurt the group because this single is really good :(
I guess its still too early to tell because sales could potentially pick up tomorrow or throughout the week. My fingers are crossed.

Gotta remember to download from itunes today!

It's not that big of a drop. I think it just means that we have a bit less bulk buyers this time around. Seems reasonable since a Rio/Rena/Natsumi oshi aren't going to be buying various copies just to attend all of the events now that their girls are gone.

Well its not that is bad per say, just not good. Just meh sales. No growth. And that, in its own way, is kind of bad.

I was hoping because of Morning Musume and Tsubaki's sales being so high that it may have trickled into the other groups. But losing so many members in such a short span could be stagnating things.

I wouldn't worry, after a drop of that many members thinks are going to look stagnant till they find their groove and the wota of those girls get over it and come back to Kobushi. The drop could have been way, way worse, so I'm actually a bit relieved.
