Hmmmm, that question is very, veryyyy tempting!!!!
Wasn't planning on making this a '48' day but it somehow turned out that way. As expected AKB''s new single "High Tension" sold over a million on it's first day which was November 16th. Oricon listed a total of 1.12 million copies sold, one of their lower figures but it still topped Nogi's current single by 300,000 copies.
Haruka is the center for the single and as you may know it'll be her last single with the group as she'll be graduating on December 26th which is only 39 days away. One of my all time fave AKB tunes is "Eien Pressure" which was the first time Haruka had the center position. Highly recommend that tune if you've never heard it and it's also, to me, their all time best PV. and perhaps their longest. Here's a few of the CD covers for the latest single.
Haruka also did an interview for the single with VIP Press/Lineblog, pics are from that interview and here's their address: lineblog.me/official/archive/1062361377.html
Just two new mag spreads but both are somewhat big like this first one which is from the December issue of BLT Graph.
After graduation Haruka will stay in the entertainment industry but just as an actress, so far everything I've seen her in she's done a solid performance. But not being an Idol will probably mean many fewer mag spreads so hopefully there's many lined up before the end of the year, other set for today is from volume 26 of Television Colors.
