I guess these initial numbers are boosted by pre-release sales, so we'll see a massive drop by tomorrow. I think 12/15k is the most accurate first week sales goal.

The sales are from the 24th, so that should mostly be pre-orders. I'm curious to see how many bought it in stores on the actual release day. We'll find out tomorrow!

I really wonder what all her posts on Instagram have been for lately. They all look like photo shoots.

Nothing else - the staff who were removed are still removed. There were a few articles around that time reporting on some kind of financial fraud going on with one of Ayu's staff but they've since disappeared, and we've had no other comments really.
