AKB48: 5th Senbatsu Election – Preliminary Result

Hey, it’s the annual Senbatsu Election again, today, the preliminary results are posted, and this time on, you can vote with a theater edition CD, unlike previous elections. What does this means, well, Theater eds are cheaper than the Type A, Type K, and Type B edition so if Wotas are gonna power vote someone, it will be at a cheaper cost. Granted of course that historically speaking, the preliminary result does not usually looks the same as the final result. But it does give us some insight on what might happen on the final result.

♛ Senbatsu ♛
#1 ♛ Sashihara Rino (HKT48 Team H) (last election: 4) – While I doubt that she would keep this standing, this shows a lot of hope for Sasshi fans that she is still loved.
#2 ♛ Watanabe Mayu (AKB48 Team A) (last election: 2) – I hope that this means that Mayu beats Yuko
#3 ♛ Oshima Yuko (AKB48 Team K) (last election: 1) – Yuko fans are veterans in this sousenkyo, they know the symphaty that she will get by getting lower than expected preliminary standing, if you people remember, when yuko won last 2010, she was 2nd to Maeda in the preliminaries, In 2011, when Maeda won, she was behind Yuko in the preliminaries
#4 Matsui Jurina (SKE48 Team S) (last election: 9) – Oh boy, Jurina entering Kami 7, well I hope she becomes a victim of very high preliminary ranking and eventually leaves Kami 7 during the final standing
#5 Kashiwagi Yuki (AKB48 Team B) (last election: 3)
#6 Matsui Rena (SKE48 Team E) 8,460 (last election: 10) – Are the Rena fans, playing it safe
#7 Shimazaki Haruka (AKB48 Team B) (last election: 23) – Dafuq!
#8 Shibata Aya (SKE48 Team KII) (last election: new) – Who you?
#9 Yokoyama Yui (AKB48 Team A) (last election: 15) – Wow, it seems, Sasshi isnt the only one who always go up every election
#10 Watanabe Miyuki (NMB48 Team N) (last election: 19) – This is to be expected, after all the push that she got over Sayanee
#11 Suda Akari (SKE48 Team KII) (last election: 29) – AKARINRIN!!!!!!!!!!
#12 Miyazawa Sae (AKB48 Team K) (last election: 11) – Graduate Already
#13 Yamamoto Sayaka (NMB48 Team N) (last election: 18) – NMBOOBS!!!!!!!!!!!

AKB48: Request Hour Set List Best 100 2013


Okay, as what happens every year in the AKB48 world, we have our top 100 songs for the year. Interesting to note is how this is the first Request Hour Post Acchan. Some things to look forward to is will Hebi Rote makes a 3 peat? How high will Manatsu no Sounds Good Ranks (being the highest selling girl group single of Japan of all time and sharing the distinction with Flying Get as the singles that won the top prize at the Japan Records Awards, which is something that cannot be said about that Karaoke song of the year. Honestly how does that sound in an argument, Yeah her song won Japan Records Award but our Oshi’s song won the Karaoke Award, really are you even hearing yourself talk, It’s like comparing the winner of Ms Teen USA to Ms Universe, But oh well I guess they take what they can). Anyway, that’s it for my hater talk. On with the results courtesy of Nihongogo Forums – The best AKB48 Related Forum on the web.

Day 1: Notable here is how a lot of Day 4 songs from last year Request Hour drops to Day 1 and the part where Blue Rose didnt appear on Day 1 which is usually the case.

100. Gomen ne, Summer (SKE48 3rd Single)
99. Boku no Yell (Theater Girls AKB48 16th Single)
98. Sougen no Kiseki (K3 – Akimoto Team K)
97. Bacchikoi K! (Team K)
96. Guuzen no Juujiro (Undergirls AKB48 20th Single)
95. Tsugi no Season (AKB48 30th Single)
94. Kataomoi no Taikakusen (B4 – Nito, Komori, Sato S.)
93. Yobisute Fantasy (Kashiwagi Team B AKB48 24th Single)
92. Hoshizora no Caravan (Shirogumi NMB48 6th Single)
91. Manazashi Sayonara (KII3 Furukawa, Ogiso)

77. Kaze wa Fuiteiru (AKB48 23rd Single)
76. Dakishimeraretara (K5 – Kasai, Kuramochi, Kikuchi)

Day 2: Interesting to mention is how Flying Get, last year’s #3 dropped to 54 and how Show Fight (Future Girls) beats Nante Bohemian (under girls) when Under girls are supposedly more popular than the Future Girls. Oh and Choose Me made it on the list and not Enkyori Poster, when Enkyori Poster has met better ranking a few years back.

75. Wimbledon he Tsuretette (S3 – Yagumi, Suda, Kizaki)
74. Seigi no Mikata janai Hero (Umeda Team B AKB48 28th Single)

71. Aishiteraburu (SKE48 9th Single)
70. Two Roses (W Matsui SKE48 4th Single)
69. End Roll (K5 – Umeda, Oshima, Matsubara, Kuramochi)
68. Kanojo ni Naremasu ka? (K6 – Akimoto Team K)
67. Nante Bohemian (UnderGirls AKB48 27th Single)
66. Omatase Set list (KII3)
65. Cross (KII3 – Takayanagi, Matsumoto, Iguchi)
64. Sakura no Hanabiratachi (AKB48 1st Indie / 8th Single)

52. Gyakuten Oujisama (K6 – Uchida, Minegishi, Nakatsuka)
51. Show Fight! (Future Girls AKB48 27th Single)

Day 3: Interesting to note is how Kurukurupa made a back 2 back appearance in Request Hour, a few years back it only ranks every other year. Oh and big disappointment on Managu placing at a measly 34. I still stand by the reason that this is because of Maeda leaviing.

50. Oogoe Diamond (AKB48 10th Single)
49. Junai no Crescendo (A4 – no3b)
48. RESET (K6 – Akimoto Team K)
47. Everyday, Katyusha (AKB48 21st Single)
46. Give Me Five (AKB48 25th Single)

42. Hazumisaki (Undergirls B SKE48 3rd Single)
41. Omoide no Hotondo (AKB48 1850m Album Takahashi, Maeda Atsuko)
40. Jungle Gym (Yamamoto Sayaka NMB48 3rd Single)
39. Kurukurupa (K3 – Kobayashi, Matsubara, Kikuchi, Umeda, Chikano, Oya)
38. HKT48 (HKT48 1st Stage)
37. Itoshisa no Accel (A6 – Takahashi Minami)
36. Bird (A3 – Miyazawa, Takahashi, Shinoda)
35. Kataomoi Finally (SKE48 8th Single)
34. Manatsu no Sounds Good! (AKB48 26th Single)
33. Nagiichi (NMB48 4th Single)
32. Oteage Lullaby (TS1st – Takahashi Minami)
31. Gugutasu no Sora (Google+ Senbatsu AKB48 26th Single)
30. Iiwake Maybe (AKB48 13th Single)
29. Warukii (Watanabe Miyuki NMB48 4th Single)
28. Seishun no Lap Time (B-side NMB48 1st Single)
27. Temodemo no Namida (B3 – Kashiwagi, Watanabe Mayu)
26. Dakishimechaikenai (Undergirls AKB48 22nd Single)

Day 4: Hashire Penguin got the Kodoku no Runner treatment, so I guess when SKE48 finally disband next year due to the great number of core members resigning last year, We may finally see an SKE48 song in the top 10. Big surprise at #5 Mushi no Ballad. I guess pity vote for Sayaka losing her captain title to Yuko.

25. Plastic no Kuchibiru (AKB48 1850m Album Shinoda Mariko)
24. Junjou Shugi (B3 – Katayama, Nakaya, Nito)
