Yeah... makes it pointless really, but what's new with RP? Even with months to plan out the promo for this single, they couldn't get it right.

BTW, I got my Tenso package and I'm pissed. I had them consolidate my packages and they packed it so poorly, my posters got crashed. I sent them a nasty email for that.

First week #40 with 2,244 copies sold. It's about 400 copies more than Jounetsu no ZUMBA's first week. I guess it would have ranked higher if they didn't release it on such an ultra competitive week.

NATE, I know it's been in the distant past, but I have a question: when MAX and Namie seperated, how was it for the girls? Did they have close connection with Namie after that?
I mean, I think they know about the other's music carreer now, but I didn't see nor any MAX, nor any Namie interview about their past as a 'group'...

MAX and Namie have talked about their situation in the SUPER MONKEY'S in some older interviews. They don't talk about each other in the media too often though. I believe the last time MAX were directly asked about Namie was during an event with reporters for Mina's comeback album in 2008.

MAX and Namie remained friends after the split. They encouraged her to split away from the group when she initially did not want to. They performed together for a long time after the split, up until the end of 1997 with performances on the Yoru mo Hippare. But besides appearances together on TV shows, there isn't much. There's this commercial:



From 1998, Namie was on hiatus during this commercial.

There was also this special from 2001 with just Nana and Namie:



Otherwise, sometimes MAX would share private photos of them with her. Reina shared one back in 2003, so even after Mina left. The last time Namie directly shared anything with a MAX member was with Mina back in 2006. Namie did reference Tacata' in 2013, but given her relationship with Rising Pro, I'm not sure if they're still interacting with each other. I hope so.

Thank you for the information, it's really heartwarming to know they share their moments together sometimes.
It would be cool to see them together for a one last time, but knowing how Rising Pro treated Namie, don't think they'd even give the slightest chance for the girls.

I looked up some of their latest single sales, well Tacata was a hit with 98xx copies sold, but I noticed they don't really go above 5000 (Rough Cut Diamond had 3342), I think
their core fans stay with them. I think this single could end up 4000, it's a quite vibrant and trendy song...

There's going to be a free mini live/selfie release event in Osaka (Osaka Station City 5th floor "hiroba" open space) on 8/16.

If you buy a CD you can get a handshake

I am going.  I was just at that space a few weeks ago for a festival and it is small/would lend itself to pictures easily, but they may ban them anyway.  We'll see I guess...
