This week’s singles charts are topped by SKE48 with their single “Kiss Datte Hidarikiki” selling a very strong 511,000 copies. It’s the AKB48 sister group’s 6th #1 single in a row and their highest selling opening week selling single. The ‘48’s are just getting stronger…will Japan ever have a shortage of idols?
