AKB48 Janken Tournament Matches Announced

24 07 2011

At the end of the final Seibu Dome concert today, the matches for the upcoming janken tournament at the Budokan on September 20th was announced and we have some interesting matchups lined up.

How’s this for starters: Sasshi vs the current janken tournament champ Ucchi! Kitarie vs Tomochin, Acchan vs Sayaka and Nito Moeno vs the runner up in 2010 Harukyan. Have a look at the whole match lineup below:

I can’t wait for this tournament now!

EDIT: This is a small news clip yesterday showing part of the janken draw taking place and there’s an appearance by Aimi Eguchi (yes that Aimi Eguchi!). She didn’t appear on screen but actually performed live and on stage with the rest of AKB48! Aimi was played by 12th gen kenkyuusei Yukari Sasaki wearing a Yuko wig.

I wonder why they didn’t let one more girl (perhaps a trainee) in to “complete” the D-Block (well… at least it is not another two girls that have to go an extra round at least.) πŸ™‚

It will be interesting to see Sasshi and Yuko face up again since they are on the same block and immediate bracket. I wonder if they will reminisce about last year.
Will Sae let Jurina advance??? πŸ™‚ Now we will see if it is true that Sae would have prevented that streak of wins that Jurina had when she challenged the group in AKBingo before? πŸ™‚

haruna vs. takamina!
that’s going to be interesting!!!!
It’s weird that two front girls are up agaisnt eachother in the first round
last year takamina was taken out of the first round and haruna advanced to becoming on of the centres of the single.
It’s interesting because haruna remains one of the two akb members that have appeared in all music videos to date.

Who will win?! πŸ˜›
takamina has some pressure; but haruna has more!!
