I don’t like this at all, I don’t think it’s fair to the Research Students in Group already.

I hope this is just one time thing, I’m not going to question anything they do. You don’t stay on top by standing still, and playing safe. One thing about the world of AKB, they always keep it interesting like it or not. I think this is just a publicity stunt,  I just hope they don’t make this a yearly thing.

November 7, 2013
Senbatsu Members for the single.

Senbatsu Members for the single.

AKB48 33rd Single “Heart Ereki”, which was released on October 30th. Sold 1,203,586 copies in it’s first week of released to ranked number one, on the weekly oricon singles chart. I really love this single, for me it’s their best single since “Manatsu no Sounds Good!”, I would rank this in the top 2 or 3. Favorite AKB48 single. So many reasons for to me to like this single Haruna Kojima is center, Lovetan is a senbatsu member. Miichan is back to being a regular senbatsu, and also Ricchan and Annin are I think Mariko Shinoda and Tomochin replacement.

This single was release in 9 versions, Including The theater Edition.
