Oricon Top 10 Albums, Week 46, November 13, 2017.

Rank/Album/Artist/Release Date/Sales.

1. Bootleg – Kenshi Yonezu (11/01/2017) (161,158).

* Kenshi Yonezu 2nd number one album.

2. Fin – 10-Feet (11/01/2017) (43,967).3. A3! Blooming Autumn EP – Various Artist (11/01/2017) (25,249).4. A3! Blooming Winter EP – Various Artist (11/01/2017) (24,300).5. [untitled] – Arashi (10/18/2017) (18,284) (736,035).6. THE GUERRiLLA BiSH – BiSH (11/04/2017) (11,346).

* This needs a little explanation, I don’t even know if I completely understand this myself.

I like BiSH I follow them a little bit, I knew they were releasing an album soon. When I saw them on oricon album daily charts in early November I can’t remember the exact date. I was surprise I didn’t think they were releasing their album this week or that week, so I had to do some checking. They’re releasing their album on November 29th, so what’s this all about. From what I understand, this is like a surprise thing with really no warning this was going to happen. They decide to release the album only at Tower Records stores in Japan, and only sold on November 4 & 5th. It’s a limited release so first come, first get. It’s being sold for 299 yen, but all your getting is CD Case with the CD and it’s probably one of those cheap CD. So if you want the CD with the a cover or a booklet, you’ll probably get that CD as well when it becomes available.

Whether these sales will be included, when they official release the album. I don’t know.

7. TWICEtagram – Twice (11/04/2017) (10,629).

1. One More Time – Twice (10/18/2017) (200,751).

* Twice 1st number one single.

They’re currently my favorite group at the moment, I don’t think it’ll last that long. Who knows maybe it’ll last a lot longer, than I think. I’ve been crazy about them for just over 3 weeks now since I first seen their video “One More Time”, I love the song and the video. Before this I knew who they were I’ve check them out for more than a few times before, I knew what the members look like and most of their names,  I may have had trouble putting the names on the face before. I’ve been checking out their older videos and just love it, just keep on watching and watching it. I’ve seen those videos before after they were just release, they didn’t really do anything to me at the time. Funny how these things work out sometimes, I guess it’s all about timing. I do have their debut mini album, my K-Pop friend gave to me as a present, 2 Christmas ago.

My Top 30 Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, October 2017.

October 27, 2017

30. Yui Oguri (AKB48 – Team 8).

With Ririka Sutou who graduated from NMB48 very late in August, it left a spot open.

This is way long over due, she’s someone who I’ve really like for a long time now. She’s just so cute and sweet.29. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).28. Ranze Tereda (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).27. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team N).26. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).25. Akane Takayanagi (SKE48 – Team KII).24. Natsumi Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team H Captain).23. Rika Nakai (NGT48 – Team NIII).22. Asuka Saito (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).21. Haruka Komiyama (AKB48 – Team 4).20. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).19. Haruka Kodama (HKT48 – Team H and AKB48 – Team K).18. Yurina Hirate (Keyakizaka46 – 1st generation).

I must admit although I check up on Keyakizaka46 a bit, she’s the only member I really know or care about knowing.17. Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).16. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).15. Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).14. Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team B).13. Yui Kojina (HKT48 – Team H).

She was moving up my rankings very quickly since she first appeared here about a year ago, but she’s been in this position for a few months. She actually got as high as number 12, it look like she was heading in the Top 10. I actually thought she would get there, I think she’ll be stucked at this position for a long while. Maybe moved down a position or 2.12 Rie Kitahara (NGT48 Captain – Team NIII).

Sometime in Spring 2018, will be a sad day for me. She’s suppose to graduated around that time.

I may have mention this here before, I can’t remember. If I did I stand by it “I think she as the most sex appeal in the AKB48 family”, I’m only saying this cause it’s Kitarie. At one time I really though she did, actually I still do.11. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H, HKT48 Theater Manager and STU48 Manager).10. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S and AKB48 – Team 4).9. Yuria Kizaki (AKB48 – Team B).

Since she graduated from AKB48 at the end of August, I’ll include her in my rankings one last time. I wish her ” The Best Of Luck”.

I sure will miss this little sexpot.Because she’s so hot, I’ll add another picture. A first here I think, I think this the first time I gave a member more than solo one picture.8.
