Senbatsu members for the single.

SKE48 14th single “Mirai to wa?”, which was released on March 19th. Sold 397,874 copies in it’s first week of release, to ranked number one on the weekly oricon singles chart. It’s SKE48 lowest first week sales, since “Okey-Dokey”, their 7th single. Could be alot of reasons, why sales have been going down. Main reason is probably graduations, SKE48 had alot of members graduated from the group during the last year. Also their was the Team Shuffle. I think the reason sales are declining, is law of equilibrium. When something goes up (Nogizaka46), something must go down. Then their’s HKT48 to consider, AKB48 sales are also declining. Just not as noticeable, as SKE48.

This single was released in 9 versions, including the Theater Edition.
