Takahashi Minami’s first day sales for “Jane Doe”

5 Apr

Jane Doe

Sales started for Takahashi Minami’s solo debut single “Jane Doe” yesterday and Takamina ended up ranking 2nd behind EXILE’s “Konna Sekai Aisuru Tame”on the Oricon Daily Sales Chart.

Below are figures for her 1st day sales, in comparison with other solo debut sales from AKB48:

1. Maeda Atsuko: Flower 102, 483
2. Itano Tomomi: Dear J 86,681
3. Sashihara Rino: Sore Demo Suki Da Yo 56,879
4. Watanabe Mayu: Sunchro Tokimeki 50,145
5. Takahashi Minami: Jane Doe 45,645
6. Kashiwagi Yuki: Shortcake 45,333
7. Kasai Tomomi: Masaka 12,240
I honestly thought she’d do better since she is under Universal Music and has better vocals among all the solo debuts in AKB.
But i guess popularity really makes a difference.
Ending off with a live performance of “Jane Doe” from Music Japan!

    this really is surprising considering that tomochin has no talent compared to all the girls on the list, this really is too bad considering takamina is probably the best vocalist in akb 😦

      I think that Takamina has the best voice too.
      Tomochin had better sales probably because she was the 1st to debut and had a catchy dance song to show off. When it came to Takamina, she was already the 9th to debut and honestly her song didn’t have much impact. Lets hope she can sustain her solo career though, because Tomochin has stopped releasing singles.

    That’s because they release her solo cd during the senbatsu election which really confused the fans on what to buy first. Either her ingle or vote for her in the senbatsu. Conflict resulted in lower rank and less sales on the first day.
