~AKB48 5/26/10 senbatsu results~!

AKB's "senbatsu" is not only so unique but it also produces such decisive results as to the current state of their fans and which members are @ the top of popularity~*. Now you can imagine just how emotional and nerve wrecking an affair with this much importance can be, and having now seen the girls' demeanor during the "senbatsu" announcements there's a case for both good and bad in it all I think. I don't mean bad in the sense of the "senbatsu" itself being bad as I think it raises much positives too. The positives stem from first and foremost this event being an amazing means of selecting members for an upcoming single~* and especially when the fan vote is taken directly into consideration as will be for AKB's next release slated for just a bit later this year. Just the thought that fans can directly influence which members take part in a~side releases is just a smidgen of AkiP's genius and how he's raised the bar in fan connection and participation making AKB's fanbase most certainly feel that much closer and involved in the group which they love♥! The negatives and positives are two~fold so to speak, overlapping over one another as surely the immense pressure can take its toll on aspiring idols only to see perhaps their fan's support wavering or much lower amongst their fellow members with each new announcement, and yet that being said it also I imagine raises the level of what I can only refer to as idol~excellence for lack of a better term @ the moment (*≧▽≦)♪!

So while AKB's current new single~* is perhaps stuck in customs or will be finding it's way here tomorrow hopefully~*, until then this new announcement is nothing short of pure \(^o^)/☆!

A special thank you~* to Guldari for PM'ng me this announcement and you can visit his blog With Berryz♪~ for a direct link to his love of AKB and much more in his Korean language blog o(*´∀`)o゛♥。

The one obvious (*´艸`)!。。joy for me is seeing Korin's perhaps ever so slightly approach to reaching Acchan's tier! I mean surely she's still many hundreds of fan votes behind but she's really the only member even remotely in Acchan's neighborhood XD! And omg Mayuyu♥!!!!!!!!!!! and Tomochin!!!!!!! and I'm just like w~ow! with seeing Shinoda Mariko's (I'm still learning their nicks :P!!!!!!) vote ranking and I just the other day received her "kiss" version poster along with AKB's vol.1 fashion book♥♥♥ but am yet to know her personality but here seeing these results I have to believe she's most endeared! ………Takamina, Yukirin, Kojiharu, Erepyon, Kitarie……..hmm I guess it's not all so eye~opening and yet it makes me so over~joyously happy to see the fan support for Korin…..yes Korin…..

………………I love you♥!

…………….um just not in that ****y guy way you may be thinking lol, it's a girl♥thing (。ーωー。)笑

    [ciò è buono]


  2. HarimaKenji says:

    Ah, crazy results again, I don't like these. Shinoda Mariko is way too high, and Miichan is way too low, just like last time. Japanese fans must be blind.


  3. Slasha says:

    Crazy rankings…but I'm happy as long as my favorites are fairly high


  4. CK says:

    Wasamin? T_T


  5. I guess there's been a bit of change but it's sweet~* seeing Tomochin receiving so much love from fans! This is so revealing and interesting no doubt just knowing how their Japanese fan~base is voting.


  6. I so too would expect Miichan to be much higher and especially with her added visibility in the group as she's also in an active unit♥ and it's a bit puzzling for me with Shinoda Mariko as I haven't seen much about her and yet she ranks so high with the Japanese fan~base.


  7. Oh I'm so curious~* as I always love knowing which members fellow fans adore…if it's okay please tell o(*´∀`)o゛。。。also it reminds me that although it hasn't been too long since my very first AKB member ranker that I should re~do it maybe soon as I've gotten so much more familiar with a few more members so things surely will change this time around =).


  8. Hmm….I'll read up more on Wasamin before replying with anything that would be ignorant of me right now (._.;)


  9. CK says:

    my most recent post


  10. Slasha says:

    My top 3 are Acchan, Tomochin and Kashiwagi. But my favorites tend to change every few months XD.


  11. Shar says:

    Thank you so much for posting the preliminary results. I didn't even realize they released it already.


  12. I can't even begin to say how amazing~* your connection with Wasamin is o(*´∀`)o゛♥!!!。。and it's so endearing to know that even while in a group as large and popular as AKB their members can truly connect with fans so much and particularly of course it's how Wasamin totally recognized you and she must have been so touched and happy to have your cheers for her. Also it's awesome that you wrote to her and she replied with her autographed photo to you! Like you say it says a lot that you chose her above even your other favorite♥ members who were present and she really is adorable~*, and while I haven't seen her in anything just yet based purely on looks she's really cute! Hmm…as she was in NY maybe she'll also be in LA I wonder?? And to be mentioned in a post of hers……you're most awesome too!!!!


  13. A~h I wonder if I'll go through the very same thing?…for now though I've only tried to rank AKB's members once and admittedly it was a most naive ranking for the most part (._.;)! as I'm not very familiar with so many members still and in particular those which aren't featured on singles. AKBingo does help though.


  14. It's really interesting to see how the fans vote and yay~* for Yukorin even being anywhere close to Acchan who I think is untouchable at the top =). It's great to see Kenkyuusei members getting much more recognition as I'm sure many fans would love to see them featured too on singles~*. Totally unrelated but I have a most likely stupid question to ask (*>ω<)、。。are all of the Team stages released as albums? From what I understand I think that one of the SKE albums I have was performed by more than one Team so it's a bit confusing…..like does each Team release the same songs on albums? I'm also under the impression that so much is exclusively released at their theater or shops in Japan only and aren't released commercially like at Cdjapan or HMV? and in particular I'm wondering about their stage and concert DVDs as I'm yet to see a new one released since I've begun purchasing their newer singles. Again this must sound really dumb but I'm hearing that the new stage is about to be started and so far I'm really just listening to their official single releases and coupling with songs. Gosh if they have albums for every stage there must be a lot of them although I wouldn't really want to have the same songs just performed by a different team and I guess just having each stage of songs once would be enough. I'm just about to listen to their "new" single tomorrow….I just haven't had the time to even open them up (/∇\*)!lol I've got to be the very last person to hear their new songs as I don't download them and I tend to try to keep from watching advance pvs online in anticipation of receiving new singles. So I'm also wondering if their stages (albums?) are mostly only available as downloads (if they're only sold in Japan) and maybe that's why I'm missing out on them =(?


  15. Shar says:

    Yes, all the individual team stages are eventually released as albums and stage DVDs. The minor problem that most new fans encounter is that not all stages are original (meaning they have their own unique set list). This is why you have multiple albums and DVDs with the exact same tracks, but performed by different singers.


  16. Shar says:

    Correction to my own post (Vox seriously needs an edit function).KII 1st stage was a revival of S2, not S1 (would be kinda silly for them to perform a revival of a revival >.<)


  17. Thank you~* so much Shar for explaining in such detail…..I was first confused by SKE having the same songs on "different" stages but it makes much more sense now =). I'm thinking that I wouldn't need to have the same songs even if the members performing are different so I'm planning to do a search for only one album per stage of songs until I can get as many as are available on CD. I've seen their live DVDs and their quite expensive on auctions and bidding can get quite wild at times so I may just stick to their album stages for now. Would be wonderful to be able to visit their theater as I imagine they sell their DVDs there and some exclusively I understand. Thank you~* again for explaining so much o(*´∀`)o゛
