°C-ute’s first major single success

°C-ute’s first major single under the Zetima label (Sakura Chirari) has reached #5 in it’s first week of release, selling 23,827 copies. Interestingly far higher than Berryz Koubou have ever sold in their first week. This is possibly due to the anticipation of °C-ute’s first single, as they have released four indie singles over a two year period. It could also be due to the fact °C-ute concert tickets were available for lucky purchasers to win. Overall, °C-ute have done very well.
