Some pics from two Keya concerts that they performed at the Highland Conifer Forest in Yamanashi on the 22nd and 23rd. Surprisingly the venue only held 12,500 fans, think these days the group could sell out a place five times that size. Keya sang twenty songs, as long as they play "Wareta Smartpone" at a concert all is well with the world. My second fave tune from the group is "Noriokureta Bus" which they sadly didn't perform.
First week sales for Keya's debut album 'Masshirona' were impressive as it sold around 279,000 copies and easily ranked #1 on the Oricon charts. That total beat the sales of Nogi's first two albums, as I've mentioned numerous times it's impossible not to compare the two groups.
No doubt Yurina's promoting on last week's 'Girls Locks!' show helped sales, Manaka had been a co-host the last two months but wasn't there last week.
If I'm absent for a stretch that means the first 'Hats Post' is in the works, as someone has pointed out a few times can't top a Keya member who is wearing one....
Just one new mag spread for today though there are more. Manaka is in a superb new spread that just came out but saving them as she needs another solo post and hopefully that'll be this weekend. The one for today has a stupendous set of pics featuring Minami, she's really zoomed way up on my fave Keya members list as she has this incredible unexplainable aura about her that is, uh, er, ah, kind of hard to explain. 😖 This terrific set where she also has the cover is from the August 4th issue of Young Gangan.
On July 24th fourteen members were at the Akiba Hall in Tokyo to promote their new app game which is called 'Kon no Kieski'.
Don't know all of the details of the game but it's one where you can become the group's American manager where you try to make them popular. At the event the members all wore different uniforms which are ones that are featured in the game, they also have the member's voices on the app. However though the event was held yesterday the game won't be coming out until the Autumn so will have more info on it when it's released.
Plenty of fine looking pics from the press conference, sure all of you know the member's names by now. I finally know all the members just by a nano second glance except for a few Hiragana members. There are a few videos of the event but like too many others don't trust them to remain on YT for too long.
