Total: 31,423

Berryz Koubou’s 22nd single titled Otakebi Boy WAO! / Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda! has sold 6,226 copies in its second week, ranking at #9, which so far makes it their 6th best selling single (accomplished in only 2 weeks). Here are the 2nd week sales and total sales of recent singles to compare:

  • Dschinghis Khan:
    • 2nd Week Sales: 2,546
    • 2nd Week Rank – #41
    • Total: 37,096

    • 2nd Week Sales: 2,620
    • 2nd Week Rank – #46
    • Total: 36,756

So far Berryz Koubou’s best selling single is Dschinghis Khan which means that in their second week they are only 5,673 copies away from that total, which is incredible. It is rare to see an H!P single get a top 10 ranking in its second week so I’m glad to see that this single has done well so far by accomplishing a high 2nd week rank with impressing sales (almost double those from their recent 2nd week sales).

Berryz still have the concert in Bangkok which will probably increase publicity back home in Japan so most likely this will be their best selling single in just a few weeks. When I saw the results I felt incredibly glad they have sold so much since they obviously worked hard and they deserve these increasingly high sales and rankings (I might have even said “WAO!” when I saw the ranking).

Right now I strongly believe that this has a possibility to become their best selling single, and with their increasing popularity mixed in with more and more equal lines and choreography they may one day sell more than 40,000 copies of a single.

While we wait for that to happen I wish the best of luck to Berryz Koubou with their Bangkok concert, which will happen in just 10 days, and I hope that we soon get the good news that Otakebi Boy WAO! / Tomodachi wa Tomodachi Nanda! has become their best selling single.

Congratulations Berryz Koubou on the 2nd week top 10 position!

I am so glad to hear Berryz are doing this good :) Although this is not my fav single (i still have Watashi no Mirai no Danna-sama stuck in my head lol) it’s a very good single indeed, Otakebi Boy WAO! being my fav song.
It’s also worth noticing that, beside the early departure of Maiha from the group, the rest of the girls seem to be sticking together. Go Berryz!! Love you all :-)
