* This needs a little explanation, I don’t even know if I completely understand this myself.

I like BiSH I follow them a little bit, I knew they were releasing an album soon. When I saw them on oricon album daily charts in early November I can’t remember the exact date. I was surprise I didn’t think they were releasing their album this week or that week, so I had to do some checking. They’re releasing their album on November 29th, so what’s this all about. From what I understand, this is like a surprise thing with really no warning this was going to happen. They decide to release the album only at Tower Records stores in Japan, and only sold on November 4 & 5th. It’s a limited release so first come, first get. It’s being sold for 299 yen, but all your getting is CD Case with the CD and it’s probably one of those cheap CD. So if you want the CD with the a cover or a booklet, you’ll probably get that CD as well when it becomes available.

Whether these sales will be included, when they official release the album. I don’t know.

1. One More Time – Twice (10/18/2017) (200,751).

* Twice 1st number one single.

They’re currently my favorite group at the moment, I don’t think it’ll last that long. Who knows maybe it’ll last a lot longer, than I think. I’ve been crazy about them for just over 3 weeks now since I first seen their video “One More Time”, I love the song and the video. Before this I knew who they were I’ve check them out for more than a few times before, I knew what the members look like and most of their names,  I may have had trouble putting the names on the face before. I’ve been checking out their older videos and just love it, just keep on watching and watching it. I’ve seen those videos before after they were just release, they didn’t really do anything to me at the time. Funny how these things work out sometimes, I guess it’s all about timing. I do have their debut mini album, my K-Pop friend gave to me as a present, 2 Christmas ago.

Video “One More Time” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HuoOEry-Yc4 .Check it out, I think it’s great.2. Yume no Melody / Dreamland – MAG!C PRINCE (10/18/2017) (62,770).3.
