    yea yea yea yea is better than woah woah woah woah~~

    Anklet one is a breakup song
    STU one is a romantic love song
    Team 8 is a life motivational song
    U-17 one is a comical youth song
    Dance one is an aggressive love song
    7byou one is a song that sings about loving to sing because of love
    Vocal one is a first love at sight song
    And
    Mayo grad song is probably the melancholy song he talking about

    Speaking of which I should go translate the STU one right now since the lyrics are out lol

    So comical they make the MV in comic book style. When life imitates art indeed. That song's (and Dance Senbatsu's) short version doesn't do it justice, the full version is a blast. I'll say this could work as AKB A-side

    Just read the dance senbatsu lyrics, it's an SDN48 level of aggressive there. The "dynamite body" has me on the floor tho, did Aki-P really write that? who he has been hanging out with? This is a 61 year old man :^^;:

    Why do I get the feeling Sayanee, Yukirin and Sasshi weren't trying to stop Mayu from dropping the mic? Their expressions were more like "Take me with you..."

    ^they're waiting for the "ok" from management, all about timing loool

    TBH i found the mic thing incredibly cringey welp. but the song and performance was cute. although i was once again reminded of why i don't like large senbatsu's.

    My Type A CD arrived today, and Types B-E should arrive in the next few days. I'm a bit disappointed that we only get the MVs on the DVD (presumably it's the same for the types other than A) and not any special Mayu content (like Takamina's last single had) but I guess we have to pay up for Mayu's album for all of that!

    Re sales: If it wasn't for the million-selling first day we could've been number two to Johnny's WEST (OBVIOUSLY a Johnny's group), who has been occupying daily #1 for the past couple of days...

    I have to wonder how the AKB48 sales will look like post-Mayuyu, though that may be a bit off-topic. :rolleyes:

    Little will change.
    Sales (at least sales out of the first day) will keep declining and blablabla, but it will have nothing to do with Mayu. :rolleyes:

    So should be around 1.1 million for Oricon.

    Billboard reported 1.45 after... two days, was it? So I’d say it’s safe to assume they’ve sold at least 1.5 up until now.

    And it’s quite impressive that we’re seeing these numbers knowing most of them come from the hardcore fanbase.
    And then it’s sad because that hardcore fanbase must be so small we’re barely seeing concerts lately in an effort to save face.

    Agree (I always like that they are still able to do this for so long, even after the big names have left).

    and agree there as well :(. Tbh, its gotten annoying that they seem to only do concerts (beside RH and Janken) for somebody who is graduate (I know it won't happen, but it would be so nice to see non graduation concerts in 2018). I mean it wouldn't freaking kill them to (who cares where tbh now).

    I really hope there are other girls that you still like, and that you haven't become one of those annoying ppl that once your oshi leaves, you bash the group she was once.

    To be fair, the last few A-side released by the group has been quite good and up to the mark (althou I'd say Keyakizaka gets all the best A-sides lol) . It's like they've finally resumed putting more effort on the A-sides after years of lazing off. Unfortunately, it seems they came back a little too late since the public seems to set their eyes on other musical acts....

    (It's unfortunate but during their prime time/peak(2012), imho they wede (ironically) trying too hard to get the general public favor and as a result, they had been playing so much in the safe zone...
