On September 21st, SKE48 held a handshake event at Seibu Dome where they announced that they will be releasing their 13th single (currently untitled) on November 20th.

At 1:00 pm, a siren sounded in Seibu Dome and the announcement appeared on the aurora vision screen. Their latest single became their 3rd consecutive single to sell more than 500,000 copies. It was also their 2nd consecutive single to top Oricon's weekly ranking.

Matsui Jurina, who won the '4th AKB48 Janken Tournament' and will be the center for AKB48's 34th single (December 11th release), commented, "Since it will be released on November 20th (20th = 'hatsuka'), maybe this will be our first million (first = 'hatsu')?!" Meanwhile, Matsui Rena called out, "I hope it will be a song that many people can get excited and enjoy. Everyone, please look forward to it!"

The single will be released in 9 different editions: Limited Edition A-D, Regular Edition A-D, and a Theater Edition.

"It was also their 2nd consecutive single to top Oricon's weekly ranking."
This is completely phrased wrongly.

Now Jurina is thinking too far for a million. Utsukushii Inazuma didn't manage to outsell Choco no Dorei yet.

Doubt SKE or any other 48 will get that 1 mil but it doesn't matter because Utsukushii and Kamonegix are better than any of the basic as fuq, half assed 1 mil AKB songs released this year so far anyway. Jurina's old man puns are always adorable tho lol

Hope the new single will be something similar to Utsukushii. <3

Agree with you SOOOO much here. SKE and NMB have been killing it the last year but still have yet to pop that 1 Mil bubble. AKB songs have been playing it way to safe since Maeda left and are not interesting. Fortune Cookie is a great song, really charming but side by side with the sister groups releases lately not even close. Ever since Enin Pressure I had a feeling this would happen. The SKE and NMB songs on that single were down right amazing and should have been their own singles, which im sure Aki-p realizes too at this point.
The End
