As though AKB48 don’t already have a number of impressive figures under their belt they can’t help but break records every time they release a new single.
For the 10th time they have sold over 1 million copies of their new single (Halloween Night) on the first day of release. This would be an unimaginable feat for most bands and performers but the fact they AKB48 do it so consistently is amazing. Out of the 10 singles that have sold over 1 million copies on day 1 Halloween Night has had the 4th highest sales with 1,187,633 sold on day 1. The record so far was the release of Bokutachi wa Tatakawanai back in May that sold 1,472,000 copies.
