Mega group AKB48 released their 20th single "Sakura no Ki ni Naoru" on February 16th, and the single has reached number one by selling 655,344 copies on the release day!

 Selling over 655,000 copies on the first day exceeds the first day sales of their eventual million plus hit single "Beginner" (released on October 27th 2010) which sold 568,095 copies on its release day.

It will top the next Oricon weekly chart for sure as AKB48 is well on their way for their next million sale single.
