AKB48 27th Single ‘Gingham Check’, First Week Sales.

AKB48 27th single ‘Gingham Check’, which was release on August 29th. Sold 1,181,966 copies in it’s first week of release to rank number one, on the weekly oricon singles chart. This is the single where the fans voted which member they wanted on this single,  the voting ballots was available on their 26th single. Although Atsuko Maeda took herself out of the election, because she was graducating from AKB48. She does appear on one track here ‘Yume no Kawa’, this will likely be her final AKB48 single. With AKB48 who knows. If they want to include her in future singles, they’ll find a way.
