I don't understand it what is disappointing

Their 1st single cd sales was boosted by the mere presence of µ's. This 2nd single is completely cause of them.. no µ's at all yet they sold almost as good as their 1st.


Yeah, I agree with this. It would have been nice to equal or better the debut but holding on to 97.5% of the 1st single's sales is great. Will be interesting to see how the anime affects their next single.

Ejc, oh come on, 46k is not bad sales also, it's what an average Nana Mizuki CD sells in a week, there may still those who are bitter at this moment, give it some time.


If you read my further responses, it is not the 46000 that is disappointing, it is the almost 2000 sales drop from the first single when comparing their first week sales.

Great for Aqours, the song and PV are extremely great, so I'm sure they'll get even bigger once the anime airs next season.

ahh.. it's good to see LL on top again though not µ's this time. 2k lower than their 1st single... I say I am impressed. This is their 1st single without any help from the originals yet they managed to sell almost the same compared to their previous single.

I didn't know 46k is already considered disappointing sales (even for a juggernaut like Love Live) :o I'm actually impressed with these numbers considering that the era of μ's just ended and we know next to nothing about Aqours yet.


Yes, 46000 sales is amazing for the majority of anime related artists (exclude MIZUKI Nana, and some of those mainstream artists), but we have to consider that they've had 6 live broadcasts so far on Nico Nico Live, LINE LIVE and Bandai Channel, been there as guests to personally open a new "gamers" store, had the SunShine anime announced, been added and featured in the mobile game, etc etc. These sales are considered disappointing because surely all this exposure would've at least brought in some new buying fans, but their first weeks sales have dropped from their first single.

It could very well be due to stock issues at storefront or it could also be many fans sitting on the fence, as perhaps many have not read Dengeki G's magazine, or played the mobile game, or watched the live broadcasts to get to know the Aqours seiyuu and their characters, but the drop in sales is worrying.


I guess that's understandable. Maybe a sizable contingent of buying fans haven't accepted Aqours yet... here's to hoping the anime might change their mind though.

Disappointing first week sales for Aqours. The first single sold 48,477 in the first week, so I don't know what happened here. Here's hoping there was some sort of stock issue at storefront, and the second week is bigger for this single than the first single. The good news is that the first Aqours single is nearing 70,000, and would actually achieve something Idolmaster has never achieved... which is to have a CD sell above 70,000.

Considering they start after u's, Aqours have pretty good sales. Good job, looking forward for anime :)

56. *1,102 *,**1,102 Big Order (TV) OP "DISORDER" by Yousei Teikoku

Always good to see the GazettE music selling well, loving their direction they're taking at the moment. Such a better sound. A shame DISORDER didn't sell that well, best OP of the season for me, helps that it's with a damn good show as well.

May 3, 2016 4:43 AM by VulgarLife

I quite like the new Aquors single; such a catchy song.

May 3, 2016 3:36 AM by nozoris

I would consider buying the Asterix ED.
