SKE48 21st Single “Igai ni Mango”, First Week Sales. Also Keyakizaka46 1st Album “Masshirona Mono wa Yogoshitaku Naru”, First Week Sales.

July 29, 2017

SKE48 21st single “Igai ni Mango”, which was release on July 19th. Sold 272,872 copies in it’s first week of release to ranked number one, on the weekly oricon singles chart. Cute little Yuna Obata is center for this single, it’s her first time being center for an SKE48 single. I believe this will be Masana Oya final SKE48 single, who announced her graduation about a month ago. When she’ll actually graduated from the group, I don’t know.

I like this single a lot.

Keyakizaka46 1st Album “Masshirona Mono wa Yogoshitaku Naru”, First Week Sales.Keyakizaka46 1st album ” Masshirona Mono wa Yogoshitaku Naru”, which was release on July 19th. Sold 279,093 copies in it’s first week of release to ranked number one, on the weekly oricon album chart. I must admit I’m very surprise how much they sold.

My only complaint about this album is for the amount of tracks it has from all the versions, which is a lot. Only a handful, and I mean very few are new songs.
