AKB48‘s Osaka-based sister group NMB48 released their debut single “Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo” last week, and it made it to the top of the weekly charts at 218,000 copies sold. This is a new record for first week sales by a female artist’s debut single (not including soloists or sub-units of an existing group), surpassing Sawajiri Erika‘s “Taiyou no Uta” (150,000) in 2006.

NMB48 is only the second female group to reach #1 in the first week with a debut single, after idol group PASSPO☆ did so in May.
