More Details About AKB48’s 3rd Senbatsu Election

11 04 2011

As we all know by now, the 3rd AKB48 senbatsu election to determine who the front girl will be for their 22nd single will take place late next month until early June.

You will be able to vote for all 70 members of AKB48 (that includes the kenkyuusei as well), 57 members of SKE48 (kenkyuusei included) and all 25 members of NMB48 (kenkyuusei included here as well) making it an incredible 152 candidates to choose from. As with previous elections – the top 21 become the senbatsu team with the top 12 making up the media senbatsu who will promote the single on major TV shows.

Voting begins on May 24th at 10.00am and will close on June 3rd at 3.00pm. This senbatsu is being taken very seriously as a third party will count the votes who will be scrutinised by a team of lawyers to make sure no wrong doing takes place. Bloody hell, this is more like something out of a politicial general election rather than an idol senbatsu election. The result of the senbatsu election comes out on June 9th. The 22nd single will be released sometime in August.

I really do expect the 21st single (which contains the voting code for the election) to crack the 1 million mark in the 1st week because I expect the voting will be fierce amongst fans, much more so than previous elections and multicopies will be bought by many of them.

I can’t wait to see who comes out on top……..please may it be Yuko!!

aaaaaw not Yuko :p

May it be Acchan, Mayuyu or Suuchan :p

I hope Sayaka Y. from NMB will be senbatsu, and crazy Fresh Lemon as well :p and I guess Yui will be on the top 12, because she’s got a lot of support from Aki-P lately…

IMHO it would be better to split the election for each group, so there’s a senbatsu for AKB, for SKE and for NMB. The top 7 girls of each 21 girls senbatsu will form JPN48 (which is the artist name under what the single will be released) and then there will be a coupling song of each group with the full senbatsu of each group. 🙂

What do you think about that idea? 😀

That is not a bad idea at all.

This would be great if all 3 groups already has a strong following. NMB just started right? They should do this somewhere in the end of the year single special or something.
By the way, is SDN48 not included? Maybe they are of a different type of group compared to the other 3.

What a great idea tokai, love it! You get the best out of all 3 groups then.
