Arashi and NMB48 Face-Off on May 9th

, the youngest sub-unit of AKB48, have managed to rank first in Oricon music first week sales for three consecutive times since their record debut. However, NMB48's quest for four consecutive number 1 single might be put on hold with Johnny's Entertainment Arashi announcing the release of their "Face Down" single on May 9th.

The girls of NMB48 have topped Oricon weekly ranking for their past three singles- "Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shōjo", "Oh My God!", and Junjou U-19". Those singles sold more than 200,000 for the first week. But the girls will soon face their biggest hurdle with popular boy group- Arashi. Arashi's "Wild at Heart" managed to snag the top spot with more than 550,000 sales for their first week.

However, rumors have surfaced that NMB48's 4th single "Nagiichi" will contain ballots for the upcoming Senbatsu election on June 6th. If it were true, then this battle for the top spot might be not one sided at all.

NMB48's "Nagiichi" and Arashi's "Face Down" will both be released on May 9th.

Who do you think will reign supreme on May 9th?

Lols it would have slayed arashi definitely if there were election tickets. too bad.


Bye bye consecutive no. 1s since debut for NMB :(

Though I have to mention that if Johnny's for a second underestimates nmb and their wota power, they're gonna regret it.

Ohh well, this time I wanna target 500k for NMB. It's pretty ambitious but that would be a good amount!! And should be enough to at least give arashi a fight.

It's alright. They're forever winners in my eyes :P

Though I'm skeptical, my heart does wish NMB would prove me wrong. They kinda did with their first single against tohoshinki. that was a closee onee :3
One korean boyband down(2 of em are still a boyband wtv), next to go a japanese boyband *shot*
