Senbatsu Election 2011 – 1st Day Results

25 05 2011

I’m sure like myself you’ve been anxiously awaiting how the voting has gone on the 1st day so without further ado here’s how it looks:

1 Oshima Yuko (17156)
2 Maeda Atsuko (16452)
3 Kashiwagi Yuki (12056)
4 Takahashi Minami (8633)
5 Watanabe Mayu (8582)
6 Shinoda Mariko (8016)
7 Sashihara Rino (7357)
8 Itano Tomomi (6596)
9 Matsui Rena (SKE48, 6559)
10 Kojima Haruna (6534)
11 Miyazawa Sae (5157)
12 Takajo Aki (5096)
13 Minegishi Minami (3931)
14 Kitahara Rie (3860)
15 Kasai Tomomi (3102)
16 Matsui Jurina (SKE48, 2843)
17 Yokoyama Yui (2753)
18 Sato Amina (2684)
19 Masuda Yuka (2201)
20 Kuramochi Asuka (1793)
21 Takayanagi Akane (SKE48, 1761)
22 Nakagawa Haruka (1571)
23 Akimoto Sayaka (1502)
24 Hirajima Natsumi (1484)
25 Yamamoto Sayaka (NMB48, 1444)
26 Umeda Ayaka (1441)
27 Miyazaki Miho (1378)
28 Suda Akari (SKE48, 1139)
29 Oota Aika (1129)
30 Hata Sawako (SKE48, 1118)
31 Kizaki Yuria (SKE48, 1053)
32 Ooya Shizuka (904)
33 Ooya Masana (SKE48, 885)
34 Watanabe Miyuki (NMB48, 854)
35 Sato Sumire (852)
36 Matsui Sakiko (814)
37 Ooba Mina (Research Student, 811)
38 Komori Mika (792)
39 Yagami Kumi (SKE48, 779)
40 Fujie Reina (778)

So how did your favourite member do? I’m happy that Yuko is at no.1 but look at the big jump that Yukirin has made. That’s amazing and Takamina has improved as well.  Sasshi is doing extremely well at no.7. I’m surprised though with Tomochin just at no.8. But as always this won’t reflect on the final result. The gap between Yuko and Acchan is similar to the final result last year. It’s too close to call really to say whether Yuko will carry on being at no.1. There are many hundreds of thousands of votes still to be cast. Positions are going to change and the media senbatsu members will more than likely swap places during the next 2 weeks.

EDIT: There’s an article online which reports that one person bought 5,500 copies of the single and voted for Yuko. I don’t know about you but that’s just stupid. Also Lovetan seems to be taking the 1st round results quite badly judging by her blog entry. She doesn’t sound too happy at all. Take a look at this video from a Japanese TV show which is all about the 1st round results:

EDIT: This is the picture of the guy who allegedly bought 5,500 copies!

I’m more surprised that Fresh Lemon isn’t in the Top 40 considering the large push she’s been receiving but it’s good to see kenkyuusei members like Mina Oba in the list. I hope she improves her position during the next 2 weeks.

Yes,very big leap for Yukirin. Fantastic! 🙂 I hope she maintains her strong presence In this election. 🙂

I had a feeling you’d be very happy with Yukirin’s position!!

5,500 copies? While I actually think it’s reasonable to believe that that may be true (wotas are crazy), the person could not have physically submitted all of those votes yet. Let’s go the Sashiko measurement – 7 minutes each for 200 posts in 24 hours – which means, allowing 7 minutes to open the CD and input the voting code, it would take almost a month to do it.

Many fans are actually questioning whether the guy is actually telling the truth or not. From the picture I’ve uploaded on my post he does seem to have a lot of CD’s but maybe not 5,500 copies

That bastard. No wonder cdjapan ran out of preorders for the Limited edition prints. hahahaha Just kidding.

Wow, I hope for his sake, Yuko gets the top spot. I can’t imagine what he’ll do if she does not made it. Plus, I like Yuko too.

Hang in there Lovetan. If you want to vent off, blame the guy with the 5,500 copies. hahahaha But I’m sure she’ll pick up pace in the election. 🙂

So, is it only the Limited edition copies that has the code to vote? I’m not sure again but anyone outside Japan can’t vote even with the code right? I got the regular editions and it seems to have a flyer with a code in it, is that the one you use to vote. Pardon me because, I can only read limited Japanese.

I think both limited and regular versions have a code to vote. I can’t tell you whether anybody can vote outside Japan as I’ve yet to receive my 2 CD’s.

Oh so those are the codes then. And there I was 2 days ago ready to throw it out. So after reading your reply, I went to check the URL and voted (with the help of google translate). It seems that you can vote even outside japan. So good luck to your Oshimen when you receive your cd and vote for her. 🙂 I’m sensing 2 votes for Sashi from you. 🙂

BTW, I thought you get 2 votes per flyer because it has two sets of codes. Apparently, the second set of code is a verification code of some sort. Sorry to blab about this. Its just that I’m new at this and maybe you already know the drill. 🙂

I’m glad that you could vote and blab away all you like. It’s exciting for those that have never voted in the senbatsu election before. I felt the same way last year when I voted for the 1st time.

I’m thinking of splitting my votes: 1 for Yuko and 1 for Sasshi but then again Sasshi needs more of a boost so perhaps in the end both votes might go to her after all!
