I didn’t go to that one, 2 cross country trips in a couple of months I thought was too much for me to do. Wake Up, Girls! also was at Anime Central in Chicago in 2014, I remember this at this time I was desperate just too see anything that J-Pop related. It was almost 2 years since I saw Berryz Koubou, which was the last J-Pop thing I attended. I really considered going and “Wake Up, Girls” was one reason, the only one actually. I didn’t go I think going to the J-Pop Summit in a couple months for the first time, may had something to do with my decision not to go.23. Nagisa no Dance Party – Shojotai (08/08/2017) (3,199).

HKT48 10th Single “Kiss wa Matsu Shikanai no Drshouka” and NMB48 3rd Album “Namba Ai ~Ima, Omou Koto”, First Week Sales.

August 12, 2017

HKT48 10th single “Kiss wa Matsu Shikanai no Deshou ka”, which was release on August 2nd. Sold 199,504 copies in it’s first week of release, to ranked number one on the weekly oricon singles charts. It’s their first single to sell less than 200,000 copies in it’s week of release, just missed it by about 500 copies. Hana Mstsuoka is center for this single, I thought this was her first. It’s her second I forgot that she was also center for the single “Saikou ka yo”, glad to see Meru Tashima back has senbatsu.

A very good single overall.

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.

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.
