This senbatsu has many new faces. Good thing Jurina win wish an energetic song that will fits her. I wonder if Ryutaro watched the tournament

yukinoo13 18th-Sep-2013 02:28 pm (UTC)
All i want is Tano Yuka become center
so close ;_;

and this is my new crush XD

csaca 18th-Sep-2013 03:31 pm (UTC)
Got a new crush, too xD
riringo 19th-Sep-2013 03:56 am (UTC)
hihi love this ikemen <3
ryusa5 18th-Sep-2013 02:32 pm (UTC)
last year Paruru won using only scissors
this year Jurina won using only paper
I wouldn't be shocked if next year Mayu will use only rock and win

shinsnowprince 18th-Sep-2013 02:45 pm (UTC)
Oh gee, third year in a row that a popular member has won this. Doesn't seem fixed at all...
urubaby21 16th-Oct-2013 05:24 pm (UTC)
I know you were being sarcastic...but yea it's obviously fixed...but I don't really care cause the rest senbatsu is girls that you don't see a lot.
kemi_chan 18th-Sep-2013 03:16 pm (UTC)
hmm~ And to think that I once believed that this Tournament was a way to give the less popular members a chance to be center...

Edited at 2013-09-18 03:16 pm (UTC)
yukinoo13 18th-Sep-2013 03:44 pm (UTC)
no,this event give them a chance to be senbatsu members
center is something like a knife in AKB's world
less popular members will be bashing if that single can't reach 1 Million
lucky_wombat 18th-Sep-2013 06:23 pm (UTC)
That is so true. Maybe it's for the best Jurina is center.
sheix0 18th-Sep-2013 10:07 pm (UTC)
It's more about making senbatsu than center.
Center probably rigged but senbatsu are all random nugus that management probably have nothing to do with it. It's for the better tbh..if a nugu girl got center and the streak break, she might feel really embarrassed and humiliated.
kemi_chan 18th-Sep-2013 11:00 pm (UTC)
Well, I guess that makes sense. But I still feel very indignant that they promote it as a "Janken Tournament" when it's really all set up. THey should invent something else like... pick one of the girls who were in the top 10 in the latest election and pick other 15 random girls to be the backdancers or whatever... But don't go around announcing that Jurina "won" the Tournament! u__ú As someone who isn't in the fandom but follow what they do from time to time that sounds like downright cheating, regardless of the reasons (sales, popularity, etc).

In short: I don't condemn the producers from doing that, I understand it's their job to make sure they sell well, but do find it very revolting!=(
hina 18th-Sep-2013 11:59 pm (UTC)
senbatsu are all random nugus that management probably have nothing to do with it

Totally disagree with this. Even excluding Jurina, senbatsu also has Tanochan, Nao, Maria, Kitarie, Reinyan, Ayarin, Minarun and Shiichan. They are all incredibly popular with management. Reinyan and Ayarin are the only middle-gens still receiving push; Shiichan gets appearances way beyong her popularity; Tano, Nao, Maria and Minarun are next-gen.
aneternalchain 18th-Sep-2013 04:52 pm (UTC)
Btw, could someone tell me who the senbatsu is for this single? I am so confused. I'm guessing Hirata Rina is in it?
I'm just so sad, Annin couldn't make it too far. ;A; My bb. Next year. <3

And, also, I think the reasons "centres" are always popular is to ensure good sales, even with a bunch of new faces.
mikachan27 18th-Sep-2013 05:33 pm (UTC)
Not surprised that it's rigged though, in fact I completely expected it.

I mean, it would be too big of a risk for the management for it to be a completely random tournament right? Imagine if the single can't pull in any numbers after all that publicity hooha... I don't mean it's for certain that if a non-senbatsu member becomes center, but it's definitely a big, big risk!
aneternalchain 18th-Sep-2013 07:59 pm (UTC)
Yeah, true. Like, in the first Janken tournament, Uchida Mayumi won, and she's never ranked in a election. Her single sold about 700 000 copies, which compared to the single before (Beginner), sold about 300 000 less. Then, their next single broke the 1M mark. Basically, all the Janken tournaments won by "popular" members hit 1M easy.

But other than Jurina being centre this year, the list seems pretty legit. So, I can't wait for this single with /new/ faces.

not bad...I'm excited for it
exoticsj 18th-Sep-2013 05:13 pm (UTC)
well,i wonder why did ryutaro watch this?
lucky_wombat 18th-Sep-2013 06:48 pm (UTC)
Loved security guard Takamina ID and all~ Her costumes were pretty spot on tonight.
KojiHaru and the mascot were super cute as well. That mascot jiggling was adorable.
lettace 18th-Sep-2013 07:02 pm (UTC)
wait, why would ryutaro watch it?
mamoswine1 19th-Sep-2013 05:48 am (UTC)
of course to support his favorite member lol honestly for entertainment factor; AKB events (senbatsu and janken taikai) are considered as national events in Japan whether fans,non-fans even haters are watching it :P
lettace 19th-Sep-2013 10:22 am (UTC)
is it really? my grandpa regards it in passing lol
i thought his fav member was known to everyone for a sec (ryutaro, i mean)
ambersolle 19th-Sep-2013 10:35 am (UTC)
Who was his fav member?
mamoswine1 19th-Sep-2013 01:11 pm (UTC)
rumor before that he bought a single of Oogoe Diamond which gives the speculation that he is a Jurina oshi although recently 2ch and wota reports appearing that he is seen most of the time with Manami but since they were classmates and Maachan was a former member it was not counted although I read somewhere that some fans saw him together with LoveTan (what a weird Johnny's Fan Report).
mamoswine1 19th-Sep-2013 01:08 pm (UTC)
yeah it is even politicians are endorsing their favorite members it doesn't mean that if one was not watching it, the mass was not watching it also. like if some one likes KPOP it doesn't mean that everyone knows KPOP
akkuma 18th-Sep-2013 07:25 pm (UTC)
i dont think she won by luck, just like paruru last year. um ok but im happy for kitarie! also nyan was super cutie <3

Dr. Mayuyu is so kawaii <3

gambareletsgo 19th-Sep-2013 12:13 am (UTC)
I bet she wears this all the time at home.
gambareletsgo 19th-Sep-2013 12:15 am (UTC)
Well it looks like another single I'm gonna avoid.
I don't really care for anyone in senbatsu, and I absolutely cannot stand Jurina.
hina 19th-Sep-2013 12:21 am (UTC)
Everyone knows it's rigged, who cares.

The best part of the tournament is the cosplay anyway.

OMG~ Ami as Vanellope is something I was dying to see. If they make the live action, I vote for her. Like, seriously she is the first thing that popped up in my mind when I saw the character in the movie.
rebirthreborn 19th-Sep-2013 01:48 pm (UTC)
I was glad she wore the jacket given to her. So cute! :D
