    DIVA's album entered daily charts at #6, no sale numbers given, but definately less than 20,716 copies.

    I've been listening to the new album this morning! The new tracks are so good! I'm glad they got were able to release this.

    The sales are disappointing to look at, but that's not what matters in the end!

    I agree, its a really good release.

    I think, sales are bad because two of the members dont have a wota following anymore (guys buying mad amounts of stuff regardless of content and reason), and the others are beyond their popularity peak as well. Then, economics arent that great either, and artistically DIVA is not doing cute idol pop, which may attract more fans, sadly.

    And finally, the promotion for the new releases is really lacking.

    I feel sorry for the girls.

    Hey, so does anyone know how to get tickets to the concert, or has that ship long sailed?

    I listened to the album today and it is actually pretty good. It's just that all their singles are rather weird like it's some strange genre that I don't quite know how to describe. Sae's song is probably my favourite. Umechan's song is one hot mess lel.

    Just watched their last live and the back up dancers did so great with their own song! I wish they'd just been made into a 2nd gen of the group so they could keep releasing music, especially since it seems like they wrote it themselves. :(

    ^You beat me up to this! And she debuted with her EP yesterday. I actually came across the PV for It's alright couple weeks ago and I was wondering who the girl in it was. Somehow it was very hard to get anything out of google when all I knew was her new stage name "Ram" :rolleyes:

    Here's the It's Alright PV preview


    I really like Break Up Shite. Longer 30s preview of it here http://www.jvcmusic.co.jp/-/Artist/A025415.html

    Agh! I wanna hear the entire EP!

    Here's her instagram https://www.instagram.com/rappy217/

    oh i was seeing a release by someone named Ram on iTunes and didn't know she was from DiVA. actually i didn't even know that the backup dancers were in fact not AKB48 members. i didn't really follow the group closely enough to know that.

    It's been announced today that Kasuya Satoko, one of DiVA's backdancers, will be performing at HyperJapan in London on November 24th & 25th. She'll be part of a duo called BOO with Hosoda Miyuu, formerly of SDN48.

    The page also includes examples of BOO's music and a greeting video from the pair.
