AKB48 Kouhaku Battle Teams Announced

15 12 2011

The 20th of December sees 2 teams of members from AKB48, SKE48, NMB48 and HKT48 do battle in a karaoke contest at the Tokyo Dome to see who comes out on top. The Red and White teams will be led by Takamina and Yuko respectively

From the list below, it seems the odds are stacked in favour of the Red Team but perhaps Yuko’s team will pull off a miracle and win.

The teams are as follows:

Red Team  – led by Minami Takahashi

Miku Tanabe, Misaki Iwasa, Sae Miyazawa, Atsuko Maeda, Nito Moeno, Reina Fujie, Ayaka Umeda, Mika Komori, Sayaka Akimoto, Shizuka Oya, Kojima Haruna, Mariko Shinoda, Mayumi Uchida, Haruka Ishida, Rie Kitahara, Asuka Kuramochi, Aki Takajo, Tomomi Kasai, Haruka Nakagawa, Ami Maeda, Rumi Yonezawa, Kana Kobayashi, Natsuki Sato, Tomomi Nakatsuka, Sayaka Nakaya, Nakata Chisato, Sumire Sato, Maria Abe, Yukari Sasaki, Mariya Suzuki, Rina Chikano, Anna Iriyama, Nana Fujita, Natsumi Hirajima, Yuka Masuda, Rena Kato, Natsumi Matsubara, Mariya Nagao, Rina Izuta, Miyuu Omori, Wakana Natori, Natsuki Kojima and Ayaka Morikawa.

I don’t have any details who the 16 members of NMB48 that are joining this team.

White Team – led by Yuko Oshima

Mayu Watanabe, Aika Oota, Shiori Suzuki, Amina Sato, Rika Suzuki, Rino Sashihara, Tomomi Itano, Yuki Kashiwagi, Miyu Takeuchi, Minami Minegishi, Ayaka Kikuchi, Miho Miyazaki, Haruka Katayama, Sakiko Matsui, Misato Nonaka, Yui Yokoyama, Miori Ichikawa, Erena Saeed Yokota, Suzuran Yamauchi, Shiori Nakamata, Haruka Shimada, Mariko Nakamura, Karen Iwata, Haruka Shimzaki, Mariko Nakamura, Rina Hirata, Tomu Muto, Rina Kawaei, Juri Takahashi, Yuuka Tano

Again I’m not sure who the 16 SKE48/16 HKT48 and 13th kenkyuusei members who are joining the team. I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

I’ll update this post when I have the complete team list.

I’m Sorry but if this is a true vocal challenge then Yuko’s team truly has no chance of winning

Team Takamina has a monopoly of all the great singers! In a perfect world, victory is a foregone conclusion.

But this is a wota world, lol. So all the Yuko, Sashi, Yuki, Mayuyu, Yukirin (and quite possibly Rena) wotas might give the Acchan wotas a run for their money.

*Oops, I meant to include Tomochin, not another Yukirin.
