Morning Musume vs. AKB48: The Real War Begins Here « Delicious Cake Project!.

Pata decides to apply a more rigorous scientific measure on the sales of each group. However, he acknowledges JE has greater sales and chooses to ignore them as a point of comparison. Why NOT contrast Arashi and KAT-TUN against MM and AKB? The numbers are available on Wikipedia, and I think it would be VERY instructive in showing how performers who are very much in the mainstream of Japanese pop culture are faring and how their fan bases behave in terms of buying their work. Because more and more, all this AKB versus MM sales stuff strikes me as piddly arguments about what’s become the high school JV squad of Japanese pop culture.
