NMB48's Yamamoto Sayaka and Watanabe Miyuki both released their solo photobooks [Sayagami] respectively [Mirugami] last week. It had been announced in advance that the girls would battle against each other in terms of first week sales, and the winner would get a solo CM. First week sales are out now, amounting to 29,800 copies for Milky and 27,622 copies for Sayanee, making Milky the winner by approx. 2,000 copies. She now stars in a CM for the sushi chain Sushiro.
The photobooks took the two top spots in the Photobook Ranking and ranked 2nd and 3rd in the Oricon Overall Book Ranking.
They are both amazing and beautiful girls. Both would have deserved to win and it turned out to be a close battle. Congrats to Milky for winning and to both for the overall good results.
