Utada’s Record-Breaking Downloads Broken Down by Song
Update: Of the 10.5 million record-breaking song downloads that Hikaru Utada has sold so far this year, “Flavor of Life (Ballad Version)” (a song inserted into the Hana Yori Dango 2 [Returns] live-action drama adaptation of the popular shōjo manga) has accounted for 7,306,000 since January 15.
The “Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words)-2007 Mix” used in the Evangelion: 1.0 You Are [Not] Alone trailer has sold 276,000 times since June 29. “Beautiful World,” the ending theme of the actual movie, has sold 881,000 times since July 23.
Ray’s take: see the title of this post. What, I’m not part of the sales and marketing staff of any animation studio/distributor, therefore their logistics are not my problem!
