It might be because the wota had increased motivation from them getting a nation-wide tour.

S/m has a lot of schoolgirl fans, even elementary students.
The girls try their best to support them but because they only show up to the venues with one handshake ticket, they probably aren't helping that much.

But having an increase in one person buying one copy will be more beneficial later on than just one person bulk-buying.
One person bulk-buying means that if that one person shouldn't be there anymore, sales would drop significantly.
Girls are hard to part with their money but they do spread the word around.

I think she's had lots of difficulties but with these kinds of numbers she's probably gotten a lot of support from everyone.

I tried as a S/m wota to analyze this calmly.

・Handshakes after lives
・They went outside of Tokyo for release events to places like Nagoya
・They expanded the polaroid events and drawing events to outside Tokyo
・Media tie-ups
・Kananan became beautiful

Some MM wota and C-ute wota bought S/m singles when they were opening.
They had handshakes during their tour.
I think those two things are the reasoning behind the increased sales.

270: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/24(火) 15:27:55.06 0
They got their sales up in three consecutive singles
so I think they should be doing more media campaigns for them.

The problem now is how to maintain these sales and continue the pattern of growth.
If they do handshakes for the spring tour then they can grow a little, but if they can't then maintaining these sales is going to be a chore.

398: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/24(火) 15:54:42.64 0
I would never have thought they could get this level of sales.
They didn't have that much advertising.
They're just that persistent??

408: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/24(火) 15:57:08.72 0
It's not that advertising increased but the number of fans did?

426: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/24(火) 16:00:06.47 0
It looks like most of the advertising was done on YouTube and Nico, surprisingly.
Moreso than 2ch thought.

I'm the type to go into stores regularly, but now that you mention it, all of H!P was doing a campaign with HMV and got to set up their own sales corner.
Even though you might think nobody would have seen it, S/m became a hot topic among young people (around middle school).
If you think about where on earth they would have found out about them, it couldn't have been TV since they don't do regular appearances and SATOYAMA isn't nearly as influential, so it has to be online distribution, right?

Even wota can't tell if they've increased in popularity or not.
But I can definitely tell that the quality of people attending their shows has changed.
It seems like no matter where I go, since ChoiKawa they've started having huge amounts of women in the audience.

One thing you could say is that it isn't that good to base popularity increases and decreases off of sales.
Even if their popularity decreased the results are from sales doping.
If they really want to obtain true popularity then they can't rely on numbers, they have to keep aiming for higher goals.

526: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/12/24(火) 16:22:29.91 0
At the free events they only do short versions of songs, the acoustics and performance quality are different, even the mood of the wota is different.
I just want to see them at a concert, regardless of it being a live house or hall.

Around September, old Momoclo wota predicted on 2ch that out of the H!P groups, it wouldn't be C-ute or MM that got a revival, but S/m.

2013 H!P song ranking! Number 1 is...

The number 1 H!P song of the glorious 2013 year is S/mileage's "Yattaruchan!"
The panel discusses the points of the song that make it number 1!
It was decided as the winner before it was decided that S/mileage would be guests.
It was evaluated as very good, "it's not that it's completely perfect as a song, but that Yattaruchan is so much fun, it's a puzzling feeling."
Did your favorite song make it?
