On February 29th, AKB48 member Watanabe Mayu topped the Oricon Daily Charts with her solo debut single, “Synchro Tokimeki“.
The next day, Watanabe updated Watarirouka Hashiritai 7’s official blog with her feelings about her great achievement. First of all, she thanked her fans for watching her special internet live through Ustream and Ameblo Studio.
Watanabe reported, “I have some good news that I can hardly believe my ears,” and continued to doubt the results as she said, ”To take number one… I still can’t believe it.” She then thanked her staff, her mom, and her fans for all their support.
Watanabe also expressed, “I’m glad to be alive. I’m glad I worked hard without quitting until now. I’m glad I got to meet everyone. I’m thankful for this encounter and destiny.”
Fellow members of AKB48 were also excited to hear that Watanabe topped the Oricon Daily Chart. Sashihara Rino wrote on her official blog, “My favorite Mayu!!! Oricon Chart number 1!!! Congrats!” She wrapped it up with a photo of herself giving Watanabe a kiss on the cheek.
