Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai – First Week Sales

Morning Musume’s 42nd single, Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai, has ranked at #5 in the Oricon Weekly Charts with sales of 36,169. These sales aren’t too awful, they could be better though it’s roughly the same as Kimagure Princess’s first week.

In non-Hello! Project news, I was quite surprised to see that BoA’s latest album, IDENTITY, only charted at #4 in it’s first week sales of 37,606. She’s ranked beneath Koda Kumi’s new album which is in it’s 2nd week, is BoA’s popularity really waning that much?
