It’s only a matter of time before SKE48 catches up with it’s sister group AKB48 in popularity. The signs are there for everybody to see. We’ve witnessed how each new single that’s released sells more than the previous and BANZAI Venus is no different. On the first day, 163,028 copies were sold which is fantastic as I really love the single and the PV that accompanies it. No.1 for the week is more than less assured with only NYC lagging behind with 52,785 copies of their latest single. Some might argue that they’re riding the wave of AKB48’s popularity but I disagree. The group have really come into their own over the past year and work tirelessly so they deserve this success.
In other SKE48 news, several members have donned cheerleader outfits for this week’s Playboy magazine.
