The first sign of actual rivalry among the groups!
N46 is taking on Sashihara Rino - 1st Single "Soredemo Suki da yo"
on Aki-P's birthday!
Who will win?
Can N46 match their sales from Guru Guru Curtain: 136,309
If so, will Sasshi be able to beat Mayu's Synchro Tokimeki: 123,237
Actually, this is properly interesting. A number of scenarios:
- Sasshi fans will buy Sasshi's single, which might lead to less votes for Sasshi in the senbatsu election (since they might overspend on Sasshi's single, instead of the AKB48 single with the voting ticket).
- People who normally would've picked up N46's single, may opt for Sasshi instead causing N46's sales to drop.
- Sasshi's Muse no Kagami will have ended by then, but I doubt that will cause her any sales.
I think this could be really close!
