The world has been waiting on the sales results of the new album by Misono, who says that she will retire if she does not sell 10,000 copies. Though official numbers aren’t out yet, it seems that she has sold at 4,000 albums on the first day of release.
Netizens weighed in on the situation:

Insert some damn handshake event tickets
With that many tweets and the seeming outpouring of fan support, it seems Misono may reach her goal after all!
On the important day that will foretell what is to become, there were plans to hold an album release event at the Tokyo Dome Laqua Garden Stage. Because of the close proximity of typhoon 19 and the official storm warning given for the area, the event was cancelled. However, in order to carry out the distributing event for the album, the staff called out [to fans] on Misono’s official LINE account.
For this album, Misono reported on her official blog that she hand wrote the serial numbers for each CD from the 1st to the 10,000th. She wrote “I will talk about the feelings I had when I finished writing [the serial numbers] to just “Mimora” and my fans!”
Fans have taken to Twitter to upload photos of albums with handwritten serial numbers to report their purchase of the album. At the moment, the number has reached a high of 4000 tweets [probably more by the time of this post].
To Misono, the approaching typhoon 19 is what has dominance over what will happen next. It appears that the typhoon will have an effect on sales in store fronts. However, fans who are uploading pictures of the album jackets out of the 10,000 that have handwritten serial numbers are holding their breathes in anticipation and watching over the situation.
