Whilst enka isn’t really popular with young Japanese music fans these days, I really thought that AKB48 fans would have supported one of their members and bought Wasamin’s single Mujin-eki which was released today. Unfortunately she only managed no.4 in the Oricon daily chart and we don’t even know what the exact sales figure for that is. As ClariS at no.3 sold 10,023 we can only speculate that less than 10k was sold. I thought with fans having seen how fantastic her vocals are on Mujin-eki plus her own unique take on Heavy Rotation, I expected way more copies to be sold. Still, things could improve as the week progresses. Yesterday Wasamin went to the famous Senso-ji temple as seen in the picture above and prayed for 20 mins to hope for success with her single. Hopefully the gods will smile upon her and make her wish come true.
If you still haven’t ordered Mujin-eki yet, please give Wasamin a boost and buy her single and with any luck she might even be in the Top 3 by the end of the week.
