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
