Just Ask For Diamond  

After the brilliant first day sales of "Lady Diamond" the next day gave Sexy Zone quite a rude awakening...

The second day sales are 18,978 . That's a drop of 72,56 % if I didn't miscounted! It is pretty normal that the second day sales are far below of the ones on the first day, but over 72 %?? I don't follow sale charts religilously but I can't remember such a remarkable drop. And I have no clue why this drop is that big. My first guess was an official holiday, but the only official holiday in April is on the 29th, the showa no hi (wich also marks the start of Golden week). Or are the Japanese fans scared since yesterday of getting hit on the head by the debris of a Northkorean rocket when they go shopping? Don't think so..So, I really have no idea. 
Well, the good news about this is the fact that Sexy Zone still managed to sell more CDs than the pursuing Perfume who sold 16,937 on their second day. Wich means Sexy Zone are still on #1 in both the daily as well as the weekly Oricon charts.

Making of Lady Diamond

I'm really not a genius when it comes to ripping and converting videos, so this one isn't really flawless especially for it's size. I'm pretty sure there will be better videos aviable of this soon (The best way to get optimal quality ist to buy the limited edition B, by the way..!). But since I have it already up and liked this "making of" quite a lot, here it is:

No, a drop like that isn't really normal. Normally the drop is somewhere between 30% and 55 %. Normally.
I don't feel very bad about Perfume. Since they released their CD in many other Asian countries, but Sexy Zone in Japan only, Perfume will sell much more CDs in addition than Sexy Zone. Also why should I feel bad for someone losing to Sexy Zone?? They are the enemey (at least for one week)! ^^
