Sasshi 2nd Single ‘Ikujinashi Masquerade’, First Week Sales.

October 24, 2012

HKT48 Team H Member Rino Sashihara release her 2nd single ‘Ikujinashi Masquerade’, on October 17th. It sold 68,403 copies in it’s first week of release to rank number one, on the weekly oricon singles chart. It was release in 4 versions including the theater edition, I love this single. I like every song.

It’s actually Rino Sahihara with Anrire, Anrire are AKB48 Team 4 members Anna Iriyama, Rina Kawaei and Rena Kato. Sasshi is with HKT48 now, why they didn’t use 3 HKT48 members instead I don’t know. I like those 3 members alot, so I’m not going to complain.

Kaoru Mitsumune withdraws from AKB48.

October 24, 2012

This is very sad news for me.

On October 24, Research Student (13th Generation) AKB48 member Kaoru Mitsumune revealed on her official blog she’s withdrawing from the group. Due to health reason.

She was absence from AKB48’s August concert at the Tokyo Dome due to her poor phyiscal condition, since then she’s didn’t participate in several AKB48 events. Due to her poor phyiscal condition, she was scheduled to join (The New) Team K on November 1st.

I remember when I first saw her earlier this year, it was her debut theater performance with the rest of the AKB48 kenkyuusei members. She really stood out, she really did look out of place. I’ll miss her she was a very push kenkyuusei member, the most ever. I think she would have likely have become a regular senbatsu member. AKB48 is a very demanding job, and they have a very busy schedule. It’s not like she really needs this, she was a supermodel before she join AKB48, I guess she’ll just go back to being a supermodel, maybe an actress also. I’ll miss her, she didn’t even last a year.

This is just wishful thinking on my part, I hope when her phyiscal condition gets better. She’ll come back and join AKB48, like early next year. Anyways I wish her the Best of Luck on what ever she does, and her health gets better.


Rino Sashihara with Anrire, Live Performance.

October 17, 2012

I just have to show this, I think it’s kinda funny.

Sasshi who release her 2nd single ‘Ikuji-nashi Masquerade’ today, it’s actually Sasshi feat. Anrire (who are Ana Iriyama, Rina Kawaei and Rena Kato), why they didn’t use 3 HKT48 members instead, I don’t know. Since she’s with HKT48.

This is a live performance on September 24, on HEY!HEY!HEY!. Ricchan alot of screen time I like, they hardly show Sasshi????
