Shimazaki Haruka’s first photobook sells 28,000 copies, rank 1st on Oricon

1 Aug

Shimazaki Haruka’s photobook, “Paruru Komaru”, has sold 28 thousand copies in its first week, capturing first place in the Oricon photobook ranking. It is also #2 in the overall book ranking for Oricon.

The photobook which features Shimazaki Haruka travelling around the 5 cities where AKB48 will be performing their dome tours, has done quite well considering sales tend to suffer after the general elections.

Here’s a look at the estimated first week sales for other members’ photobooks and where Paruru stands:

Sashihara Rino 『さしこ』 初週 5.7万部
Kashiwagi Yuki 『ゆ、ゆ、ゆきりん・・・』 初週 4.7万部
Watanabe Mayu 『まゆゆ』 初週 4.5万部
Oshima Yuko 『優子』初週 4.1万部
Maeda Atsuko 『不器用』 初週3.8万部
