"Naze Hito wa Arasoun" is the group's 29th single and is considered a triple A-side single whatever that's supposed to mean, shouldn't every song by a group be the best one possible? First week sales for the song were 59,500 which made it the second best seller of the week on the Oricon charts. Bit of a drop from their last single which sold close to 70,000 it's first week out but 59 K is more in line with what their previous five singles sold in week one. What needs to happen is for it to have a strong second week, seems the first week accounts for about 85% of their single sales but as a rule think that's the same scenario for most J-Pop groups.
In June the group will be having a few fan events which I think consist of a mini concert and them signing various things. Hopefully by then they'll be something new for the members to sign such as a new photobook, even a group PB would be fine with me. On April 20th, which was the date of the single's release, the group had a mini performance at Club Citta where they performed all of the songs from the single plus a few of their classic oldies.
Not too many new things but trying to get them to that 100 post milestone and they're awful close to that number right now, should have checked before writing this as this may be #100 but think they're about two short. Maimi and Saki certainly are looking fabulous here, they're both Idols who could dress in parkas and still exude sexiness to a new level. These are from a new interview for 'Pick Up Idol' which is a part of Hustle Press, here's the site address to copy into your browser:
Plus after these pics have a video for 'Jinsei wa Step!" which is one of the songs off the single and don't think it's been posted yet, it's also subbed in English.
