Morning Musume’s “One Two Three / The Matenrou Show” Breaks 100,000 Copies Sold! July 10, 2012

Posted by Nights4Saturn in Hello! Project, Jpop, Morning Musume.

To help but that in perspective, Momusu hasn’t broken 100k total sales for a single since 2004, and One Two Three has only been on sale for a single week!

Holy cow!

To say that this is an impressive feat is almost an understatement. I mean, this thing is even out-selling Golden Age Morning Musume releases! It’s almost sacrilegious. 😀

It’s a great release, as isilwentari does a fantastic job of showing, so I certainly think it’s deserved. One certainly can’t argue that all the new blood that Morning Musume has recently taken on has significantly freshened the group’s image up a bit.

I’d love to see this awesome momentum keep going, but I can’t help but be a little pessimistic. Nanchatte Renai, (Momusu’s 40th Anniversary single, and talk about a change in style!) also had exaggerated sales compared to those that came before and after it. On the bright side though, despite the drop it did signal a slight uptick in single sales afterwards!

Also, not to mention that Morning Musume’s 50th single also marks 50 consecutive top 10 singles, a record in the Japanese music industry!

It could also be the fact that there are seven(?) editions of the single and most fans would probably buy every single one. I still think, despite whatever doubts we may have, that it’s impressive and awesome. It’s really a great release and I am so happy for them. ❤ I couldn't believe it when I read it. 100,000!!!! Momusu – you just can't keep them down.

I know what you mean about not being able to keep them down 😀 I never really thought we’d see sales this high ever again, but look what happens…
