Iwasa Misaki Tops Oricon Weekly Ranking

AKB48's Iwasa Misaki released her 3rd solo single [Tomonoura Bojou] on January 8th and managed a first in her career: she ranked number one on the Oricon Weekly Charts. 1st week sales are 11,928 copies.

This is the first number one single by an enka singer in 4 years and 5 months and the first number one in 27 years and 7 months by an enka singer in her teens. Despite that, sales went down compared to her previous single [Moshimo Watashi ga Sora ni Sundeitara] which sold 18,929 copies in its first week.

Sales aren't that high, but Number One is Number One. So congrats to Wasamin. Good to see her enka career going on.
