NGT48 3rd Single “Haru wa Doko Kara Kuru no ka”, First Week Sales.

April 19, 2018

NGT48 3rd single “Haru wa Doko Kara Kuru no ka”, which was release on April 11th. Sold 109,012 copies in it’s first week of release to ranked number one, on the weekly oricon singles chart. Hinata Honma is center for this single, NGT48 has had a different center for their 1st 3 singles.

I love this single I like all tracks a lot, for anyone interested Rie Kitahara graduation song “Watashi no Tame ni” is on Type A, Oh Geez, I can’t remember her graduation date. It’s coming up really soon, like in a couple of weeks or less.

* I wanted to check after I wrote that, will she just graduated on April 18th, for some reason I though it’s March. Anyways, I will talk more about her graduation soon. She should have been center for this single, they never give her the same kind of respect as they do with Sasshi. I don’t think they’re that close anymore.

NMB48 18th “Yokubomono”, First Week Sales.

April 13, 2018

NMB48 18th single “Yukubomono”, which was released on April 4th. Sold 193,740 copies in it’s first week of release to rank number one, on the weekly oricon singles charts. It’s by far their lowest first week sales, their first single to sell under 200,000 copies in it’s first week. Which is a shame, cause I think it’s a really good single I like it a lot. I like the CD covers also, I think it’s one of their better ones.

Sayaka Yamamoto is center for this single.

It’s not as bad as it was with Jurina and SKE48, take her away from Keyakizaka46 and they’re basically faceless. I shouldn’t say that about them I don’t really follow them, what I Know about them is from following “Techi” who I do follow a lot. She’s probably in the Top 5 J-Pop Idols who I follow the most, I would put her in same group with Asuka Saito and Asami Watanabe and maybe a couple of others. Meru Tashima and Maria Makino are definitely 1 and 2.13. Yui Kojina (HKT48 – Team H).12. Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).11. Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team B).

I can’t wait to get and look at her first photo book, which I just ordered.10. Rie Kitahara (NGT48 Captain – Team NIII).

I think her graduation concert will be April 14th. On March 1st she perform at the AKB48 theater for the last time, joining her were almost the entire AKB48 5th Generation, including Tomomi Nakatsuka. I got to look for that a watch it, even Sasshi was there. Actually it would have been a surprise if she wasn’t, I still remember the first I started getting into AKB48, for the longest time I thought she and Sasshi were the same person.9. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H, HKT48 Theater Manager).8. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S Leader and AKB48 – Team 4).

Because Ryoha Kitagawa and Saki Takeuchi look so good Together.

7. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).6. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team K).5. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team KIV Co-Captain and AKB48 – Team A).

On March 19th, was her Birthday. Happy belated 20th Birthday, Sakura.4. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain).3. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).2. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).1. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NGT48 – Team NIII).


Keyakizaka46 6th Single “Glass wo Ware!”, First Week Sales.

March 17, 2018

Keyakizaka46 6th single “Glass no Ware!, which was release on March 7th. Sold 833,346 copies in it’s first week of release to ranked number one, on the weekly oricon singles chart. They’re heading to Nogizaka46 territory with those sales, the way they’re going it will only be a matter of time til they will surpass Nogizaka46 in sales. Which would be unbelievable.

As usual Yurina Hirate is center for this single, just like all their previous singles. I like the CD covers, they almost always have great cool CD covers.
