This morning I saw akbのCD trending on Japan Twitter. Something abt fan throwing more than 500cds at a mountain. I didn't understand much but I thought what a waste. I wonder why the person didn't sell it back. Or at least give it away.
I just looked it up. It seems that some AKB fans who mass buy CDs for Election tickets just leave their extra copies of the CDs on mountains as a way of getting rid of them. It seems to have been a regular thing that just didn't come to light until now. They found some 600 copies of their last single so far.
Honestly, if they don't want them that badly, I would have taken them. But damn, I knew people bought way more albums than they would ever need, but I just assumed they would just throw them away in like the trash.
