Pre-order 49th single on CDJapan:


No title

The top 3 was disappointing. I was hoping for some changes at least. The senbatsu overall is really exciting though.

I want to cry for mayuyu.. she deserves more...but man.. sasshi 200k plus votes seem too hard to beat.

This is the end... maybe...

Once again Sasshi.... and Mayu now will graduate...
Is it the beginning of the end of AKB48 ?

I can imagine the next to graduate this year will be Yukirin and Sayanee...

No title

Sashi's vote count is an incredible barrier for any members to compete against.

True man.. since last year i've been wondering, where did that votes came from.. maybe some Middle East Oil Billionaire? Or even Lord Gaben?

No title

Freak I just noticed Showroom's #1 Onishi Momoka didn't get in :o NOOOOOOO

No title

Ikumin didn't get in either :|
My 8's...

No title

Sasshi has fans, get over it. It isn't all because her fans are all rich. She has the widest appeal of the top members simple as that.

No title

despite the top 3 i like the new senbatsu! disappointed miichan is still in undergirls and ranked down 2 spots. at least sasshi won't be participating next year, so hopefully next year's election will be better!

middle East fan

I'm from middle East and here mayuyuu and jurina pupuolr and lovelyes more than Sashi ... but it's true maybe someone billionaire vote for Sashi or maybe she really have many fans ;) anyway congratulations for her and I'm so sad for mayuyuu 💔 this is the end of the legends story

No title

damn. i forgot tomu didn't run. even if she advanced in rank, nothing would be given to her anyway. i guess it's fine.


I'm sad Mii-Chan went down two ranks , i was hoping this would be the year she made to sebastu (i hope i spelled that right) and did she say this was her last year running or was that last year when she said that?

No title

A little suspicious of the vote totals. Nearly 100,000 more votes for Sashi than Mayuyu? Something strange here.

lets move on

margin near 100,000 votes is a lot of ¥ in total..(well, there are another way to vote, but CD is the easiest and common way right). So, even if she has the widest appeal, and the massive media coverage because of her talent, i hope she stick to the promise that she wont run for SSK next year (not like miichan.. poor miichan..), coz i think that she has prove a point, and i believe that people are getting tired of this.. i dont hate sasshi or any member, but its time to move on to the next gen members (and management should think about this seriously, not just some half-ass push). Ogino's achievement shows that there are people out there who wants to move forward and break the stagnant domination of the big 3. Well, mayu and sasshi wont follow SSK anymore. So, Jurina and Miyawaki? i hope it will more interesting than that next year. Peace.

No title

Because Sasshi takes a back spot on hkt singles these are really her only centers and she earns them nobody should complain. The other top 3 both have center singles given to them with Jurina having posiibly the most of any member of any group in akb history.
