AKB48 Album “Kamikyokutachi” released in 2010 has achieved another milestone for the group as it has crossed the 500,000 mark in sales. With the success of “Kamikyokutachi”, it  marks the first time that the group has had an album reach a half-million in sales.

“Kamikyokutachi”  also marks the first time a Japanese girl group has reached this mark for albums  since Morning Musume’s album, “4th Ikimasshoi!” achieved the same  result nine years ago with sales of 515,000. Currently AKB48 is only 14,000 behind this mark.

“Kamikyokutachi” also set an international milestone, as it became the first album by a female Pop group to surpass half a million since Destiny’s Child’s “Number Ones”.
