°C-ute’s Done it Again

12 09 2012

With their last single, °C-ute proved that a (not so) little bit of good marketing can go a long way with sales figures.  Now with their latest single, Aitai Aitai Aitai na, they’ve proven that that and an above average song can go even further.  In their first week of sales, they’ve broken their own personal record again by selling 46,827 copies, placing 4th on the Oricon charts just below AKB48!! These first-week sales are more than Kimi wa Jitensha, Watashi wa Densha de Kitaku sold all together, making this single their all-time best-seller in one week.  Now I’m even more excited to see what °C-ute has coming for us.

And hey, I think Tsunku might finally be getting the hang of this producing thing for the first time since 2004 this year!  And maybe for the first time ever, UFA is learning how to manage and market! Whaaaaaaaat?!
