SKE48 sets Guinness World Records with their first album


Idol group SKE48's first album, "Kono Hi no Chime wo Wasurenai", has been certified with the "most number of music videos in an album" by the Guinness World Records.

On November 19th, an awarding ceremony was held in Tokyo, where the girls of SKE48 received their certificate. In astonishment,Matsui Jurina commented, "Being active in SKE48,I never thought that we would be certified by Guinness," and continued with, "I want to rejoice together with our fans."

The album comes with a total of 63 music videos for each member. When the news first broke through to the girls during their album release event, they expressed their surprise and joy with shouts of "Wow" and "Yay". Matsui Rena said excitedly, "We're going to be in that Guinness Book!?", and expressed her wish of displaying the certificate in SKE48's official theater (opens on December 9th).

Now in their 5th year, Jurina was deeply moved at the growth of the group. "I never thought that we would have 63 members in the first place," she said. This year, there are rumors going around that the girls will make their first independent appearance on the 'Kohaku Uta Gassen'. "If we could participate, that alone would make me happy. If every member of SKE48 could participate in the Kohaku, I want to share it like the Guinness World Records."

Among the 48 groups, AKB48 has been certified as the "pop group with the most amount of members". Takayanagi Akane proudly stated, "For ours, the fact that each and every one of our works have been put into one has been certified. The directors made them with affection for the members, so we're winning with love."
