2008 Best Selling Hello! Project / TNX / AKB48 / Related Singles

I’ve compiled a list over the year of the sales of all the Hello! Project / TNX / AKB48 and related singles’ sales (where possible) and now below I present to you in order of lowest to highest sales the top selling singles for this year. Each list will be presented in their own category (Hello! Project etc). Please note that some sales figures may not be completely accurate and indeed some singles are still charting and are likely to sell more in the coming weeks. If you notice any glaring figures that would change rankings please comment!The charts are presented in; position, artist, title, date and sales. Best selling figures are cumulative – the more singles released the higher the sales.
