Now that most of us have got our copies of Beginner through the mail, you’ll have found a voting ticket inside for you to pick your favorite song for next year’s Request Hour Setlist Best 100 2011 concert which takes place over 4 days (January 20th – 23rd) at Shibuya AX. Voting started on October 26th and will run until November 30th (15:00 hrs). This will be the 4th year for the Request Set List concerts to take place.
This year you can choose from 386 songs including the latest single Beginner. The breakdown goes like this: AKB48 – 271 songs, SKE48 – 45 songs, SDN48 – 8 songs + UNIT/SOLO – 52 songs so plenty of choices for everybody. But there are some songs that you can’t vote for and they are:
– Team A3 Medley
– Team K3 Medley
– Sakura no Hanabiratachi 2008
– Sakura no Hanabiratachi 2008 (Gakkou Mix)

So how do you vote? Well it’s an incredibly easy process and the details is on the Stage 48 forum (look for ecwx’s post): http://stage48.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=280440#p280440 . After installing and editing what you need to do from ecwx’s post this is the website where the voting takes place: http://request-hour-2011.jp/
Seeing as I have 2 voting tickets, the obvious dilemma was which songs to vote for. I’ve already used 1 ticket to vote for Beginner as I just love that song but I’m still undecided on the 2nd song I should vote for. I know that many fans on the forums are voting for First Love in the hope that Erepyon will appear. I sincerely doubt that she’d return from her acting studies just to perform 1 song. It would be nice to see her come back though but I just can’t see it happening. We’ve seen Mayuyu perform her own version of the song and I think she does it really well so First Love is an option for myself to vote for but with so many great songs to choose I think I’ll have to mull it over for the next couple of days before making my decision.
Which song(s) gets your vote?
