As I reported earlier this month, AKB48 and Hello Kitty are collaborating on a range of products which are coming out on general release to the public such as notepads for example next month. Today saw Kitarie, Sasshi, Chiyuu, Akicha and Miichan attend the launch event at Sanrio Puroland. The five came out with some ridiculous comments like Kitty-chan is a senpai to idols but the best was from Chiyuu who said Kitty-chan’s movements are cute and I want to learn from her. No doubt it pleased the kiddies who adore Hello Kitty. Some of the members would like to collaborate with other Sanrio characters in the future.
Last week I said that Acchan’d drama Hana no Kimi 2011 had dropped woefully in the ratings to a meagre 6.0. The ratings did improve slightly to 7.9 with the 3rd episode. The problem with Hana ni Kimi is the number of episodes could be cut from 11 to 9 if ratings don’t drastically improve in the next 2 or 3 weeks. Kojima who is starring in the drama “Ikemen desu ne” is holding steady in the ratings so far at 11.0, improving by 0.1 percent.

Take a look at the full PV for SKE48′s single “Pareo wa Emerald” which comes out tomorrow. It’s sure to become no.1 next week. Love the song.
Also, it’s a day early I know but I want to wish my SKE48 oshi Rena Matsui a very happy 20th birthday. Congratulations on becoming an adult Rena.

NMB48 have successfully won their challenge to become no.1 in the weekly Oricon charts and avoid having to perform in bloomers. They managed to sell 218,000 copies of “Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo” in the end. At times it was touch and go whether they would remain on course to hit the no.1 spot with Tohoshinki staging a strong counterattack after the first day of release and coming extremely close to overtaking them. Sales of NMB48′s single dipped quite a bit on the 2nd and 3rd day of release. Perhaps the fans realised that NMB48 was in jeopardy as all of a sudden last Saturday sales rocketed back up to 50k. This was enough for them to gain a substantial gap on Tohoshinki.
Well done girls on securing your first ever no.1……hopefully the first of many for you.
