This second Oricon article says they had 2nd week sales of roughly 35,000 disks (approximate figure given), for a two week total of ~511,362. This is a better second week than Futari Saison (25,523; Keyaki's 3rd single), and almost as good as Fukyouwaon (36,558; 4th). Also just above Hadashi de Summer (33,241; Nogi's 15th single) and below Sayonara no Imi (38,592; 16th). Note: I am not comparing quality or popularity between groups, just establishing benchmarks to ground our pride in Hinatazaka46. Many things can affect sales in a particular week, including national handshake schedules and competing singles. And Hinata sales are built on a high foundation established by both Nogi and Keyaki. I felt great pride in the group for its performance on Utacon. They sang live and not to their recording but to a live orchestra. They sang well and danced well. They were very responsive in talk portions and in performing with older singers, and were polite, quick, cute and neat/pretty (I'm thinking of the word seiso 清楚, which I've seen used to describe Nogi). And they gave off a wonderful Happy Aura. The host of the show said he had become an Ohisama. I and the host were both impressed, when Nao was demonstrating the KyunKyun dance, at the way the other half-dozen members in that interview just naturally sang the song softly and beautifully behind her. The three years this group has been developing may seem long, but they were not wasted: the group bursts onto the scene already at a high level of competence. Link to Utacon video (four short videos will play one after the other).
