First, I hope that everyone is enjoying the holidays.

Unfortunately, I've got bad news: I'm shutting down "Ganbariina!".

I don't think it wound up being very useful since most of the info I reported had already come out in other places. Additionally, I just didn't have time to do what I had really wanted to do with the site, which was show summaries, or introducing the members (specifically the lesser known ones) so that people could get to know SDN better. For that, I have to apologize.

I hope that all of you will continue to support SDN as they continue to work hard at chasing their dreams.

PS: I won't be deleting the blog, so you can still come to review old posts, etc.  It's possible that, in the future, if I have time I'll be able to continue, but I honestly have no idea.

Nonti and Meetan on Akimoto Sayaka and Miyazawa Sae's Ukkari Channel (AKB48)

If any of you also check out SaeYaka Paradise (it's in my blog roll to the side :D), you've seen this already, but as a courtesy, I'll post this here, as well.

On the 18th and 25th of November, Nonti and Meetan were guests on the weekly radio show "Ukkari Channel", hosted by AKB48 Team K's Akimoto Sayaka and Miyazawa Sae.  Neither Nonti or Meetan are strangers, since they all used to be on Team K before the shuffle and permanent transfer to SDN48.  So, they get kind of noisy and crazy at times (OK, that might be an understatement).

If you haven't already, read the summaries at SaeYaka Paradise (thanks Ange! :3)

Episode 7 (Episode 1/2 of Nonti/Meetan guest appearance)
Episode 8 (Episode 2/2 of Nonti/Meetan guest appearance)

Ganbariina!: New portable size! :D

Ever been trying to read the blog on a mobile device, like an iPod touch (or whatever) and found yourself squinting, zooming in and out, etc?  Well NO MORE! :D  The good people at Blogger introduced a mobile template, which I've enabled.  You apparently have the option to switch out of it, should you choose, but hopefully this will make browsing the blog easier.

Stay tuned for one more update today, and until then, keep GAGAGA-ing! :D

GAGAGA Oricon update (weeks 1, 2, and 3)

I know, I'm really late on this. ,____,  I got really busy right around the time GAGAGA was released and I just couldn't seem to find time to update.

Anyway, most of you probably know, but it managed to come in 3rd on the weekly chart, selling 63,627 copies.  Since then it's hit 23rd and 37th on the weekly chart(s), and has sold 71,714 copies total.  Not too shabby, eh? :D
