Misaki Iwasa 1st Solo Single ‘Mujin Eki’, First Week Sales.

AKB48 Team A Member Misaki Iwasa first solo single ‘Mujin Eki’, which was release on February 1. Sold 23,773 copies in it’s first week of release, to rank number 5 on oricon weekly singles chart. Not bad since she’s not really a popular member and it’s her first single, and it’s a enka single which isn’t really a popular music genre.

About a week ago January 30 was her 17th Bithday, I’m late but Happy belated Birthday Wasamin.

Minami Takahashi Mother arrested.

February 8, 2012

I’m not gonna go to any details on this, in fact I’ll make this very short. I’m not very good on writing about this kind of stuff.

Minami Takahashi mother was arrested, she allegedly committed an indecent act with an acquaintance of her 15 year old son. There’s more to the story than that, which I’m not going to write about. In fact I wasn’t even going to do any post on this.

This must be very tough and embarassing on Takamina, Hope she’s doing fine. Since this doesn’t directly involved her, I doubt very much she will be punish for this. Like AkiP said ‘The show must go on, no matter how painful it maybe. We are all in this Together’.

I just want to show my support for Takamina, I’m behind her all the way. Just over a month into this year a couple of scandals, not to mention what happen during a few handshake events earlier this year. This looks it might be a very tough year for AKB48. I guess when your this big, it seems everyone wants to take you down.
