    Please start reporting Billboard JAPAN’s single sales for SKE48 and other idol groups. SKE48’s 23rd single is their highest selling single for the last 3 years. ORICON’s local sales charts are very misleading for all the international fans from your site. Their data is irrelevant and makes your sales report very unconvincing. AKB48 is likely to break the record for best selling single in Japan music history within the next 2 years. How are you going to deal with such information deficit while being a long term online advocate for 48 and 46 Group?

    21st single first week sold 368,313 copies
    22nd single first week sold 305,192 copies
    23rd single first week sold 272,666 copies

    No surprise, SKE hako oshi probably went broke after ssk and Sentimental Train. But sales doesn't mean anything for the hardcore fans of SKE, just look at the popularity of Muishiki no Iro and Ikinari Punch despite the sales, their songs are more popular in Japan than even AKB songs.
