    My opinions and reactions for Senbatsu
    • OMG, SHIICHAN IS IN SENBATSU. I THOUGHT TSUBASA WA IRANAI WILL BE HER LAST SENBATSU :cry2:
    • Tomu is back and I hope she will become Media Senbatsu even though the probability is so small because of the management
    • If Yuria doesn't rank high this year despite being pushed when she's just ranked in NG, her push will be done.
    • Team 4's Senbatsu representatives is fixed.
    • Where is Yuirii? :fp: (Her decision not to participate in Sousenkyo might just prevent her from being Senbatsu)
    • I, literally, have no idea who Onishi Momoka is when she's being announced as Senbatsu. But, glad for her anyway :)
    • I'm 85% sure about this: Rara, Aayan, Hanachan, and Rikachan are projected for being sister groups' center/ace/face/whatever-it-is-called in the future, so here is their push.
    • Congrats for Akarin, Miorin, and Shiichan!!!!! :1st: (If Momoka was choosen instead of someone else, the fandom might go crazy :^^;:)

    And here is my prediction (which no one will care :fear:) for Media Senbatsu
    • Team A: Iriyama Anna, Kojima Haruna, Yokoyama Yui
    • Team K: Minegishi Minami, Mukaichi Mion
    • Team B: Kashiwagi Yuki, Kato Rena, Watanabe Mayu
    • Team 4: Okada Nana
    • Team S: Matsui Jurina
    • Team E: Suda Akari
    • Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka
    • Team H: Kodama Haruka, Sashihara Rino
    • Team KIV: Miyawaki Sakura
    • Team NIII: Kitahara Rie

    Btw, I think AKB48 really will release 48th single with 48nin Senbatsu ._.

    Oh look, it's another "just one more single". Kibouteki passing the torch, then KnBmB, then KwM... Always just one more single...

    I really have no time for a Kojiharu center. I wish they would stop clinging on to these members and begging them to stay when they clearly don't want to. And now she graduates weeks before the single is even released. She's nearly 29 - just let her leave and go on with her life!

    If you're a theater member, then your most recent singles are TwI, KnBmB, Kibouteki, and LabuReti. 4 out of the past 11. I don't think there's anything else I need to say here.

    Hey, maybe it'll be 32nin like Bokutachi wa Tatakawanai was 32nin - i.e. really a 16nin except for maybe 3 shows ;)

    Nice for Onishi, her reward for doing Showroom each morning for months?

    I really don't think having the Center graduate in like 2 weeks is a good idea.

    Ay, dios mío.

    Let's see.

    • WTF is with this big ass senbatsu all the time now???? They better do something different for the 48th (and no, I don't mean 48 members) because this is getting boring and pointless.
      • Shiichan and Lemon riding that Kouhaku wave, huh? Can't be angry at them.
      • Oonishi?? *gasp*
      • Lots of randoms here like Rara, Akarin, Ayanee... like, way to clog up the line ups management.
      • Still don't get Hana's thing. Still haven't seen a picture of her where she looks nice. :/
      • No Katomina? But there's space to throw in Rara? What kind of Trumpism is this?
    • Media senbatsu...
      • AKB48SamuneiruPromo.jpg
    • I prayed to Beyoncé that the Kojiharu center was not real, but the cougar has claws and clung to it with them. Ohwell. Again, THEY BETTER DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR THE 48TH TO MAKE UP FOR THIS.
      • Also, this kinda confirms her last theatre performance won't probably take place before the single is released. Is she the Takamina of 2017?


    • B-sides from sister groups, as expected.
      • I hope the AKB senbatsu is something interesting, but I can imagine being basically the AKB girls in this single except for Kojiharu and Shiichan (maybe swapping Onishi for another eita? Ikumin comeback? Plz?).
      • Aaaaaaaaand another AKB46? I wonder what @kanjo thinks of this, since the 46 are so not 48G. :p I just hope they snatch Tecchi and give her a good position (Wcenter with Naachan and I'm dead).
      • No Team 8 song? They give them SIX concerts last month and a SSA for their 3rd anniversary and they still get nothing? They better get like 3 in the next one.

    Overall, it seems like a "we want to do everything" single.
    Huge senbatsu to not disappoint anyone + b-sides for everyone (except teams and 8) for obvious reasons.
    As @Lindsay said, the lack of team songs is simply worrying. I know the teams are lacking the members now, but... wouldn't it be nice to have actual screentime for some of the girls? Plus, many haven't appeared in a single since Tsubasa!!
    This is how young girls like those from D1 and 13th gen end up graduating. They are basically doing nothing. :fp:

    Again, I hope the 48th single brings in some changes.
    No big senbatsu. Team songs. New gens everywhere. RuPaulesque dance routines. Whatever.

    And the rest of the big senbatsu members better stay put until 2018 now. I swear to god if they waste another center in them this year.

    To be honest, I really don't care for the full senbatsu. All I care is the media senbatsu. That's the people that you'll be seeing shoved in your face since you can expect the song to be performed everywhere even before Kojiharu's graduation since it's Kojiharu's "last single and center". The most that the other selected senbatsu members get is a cover on the CD (which is probably not going to be seen due to the numbers) , get to perform on TV for the first reveal (great for non-senbatsu members but pretty pointless for those that are already used to it), get to experience being in AKB senbatsu (someone like Akarin might benefit from this), and some other minors ones I've missed.

    Shoot Sign? Romance Kenjuu 2.0? F Yeah, make it happen. (lmao, it probably won't)

    I actually don't mind the senbatsu member selection. You have the usual senbatsu (I wonder who will take Paru's media spot), the should be rewarded member (Kouhaku top 16 and Showroom), and the future aces. 32n senbatsu is the time to give some sort of recognition, even tho it won't be much, to some non senbatsu members.

    That being said, my only issues are I don't like a back-to-back 32n senbatsu, unless the voting ticket single will be 16n and no AKB team songs for the theater girls (it's been a year since the last time we got them).

    This might sound egoistic, but MaYuki should hold their graduation until next year, just so we won't see another farewell A-Side Center this year, and when they do, they better make it WCenter.

    The thing with Rara is i thought management was redirecting their push to UhaNao, but then Rara's the one that got picked

    And damn no Nao & Katomina in a hugeass senbatsu? Really?

    Speaking of Showroom, Nomura Nao should have been in this senbatsu. Team it up with her being D2's fanservice queen.

    For real.
    They had no problem in dropping Miichan for HT (and other singles) and Yuria still there? :hmm:

    Maybe Katomina's hand still not fully healed yet.

    Dropping Yuria? Nah, i doubt it will ever come :^^;:

    She just need to be promoted first along with other D2 members. Maybe the annoucement is at Kojiharu's concert?
    I'm not saying they never pick a KKS to be senbatsu member though.

    If Hana doesnt rank or ranks in Upcoming/Future girls I will laugh my lungs out! Whats so special about her for real? Rara is a good performer at least... Litterally more than half of HKT are more suitable to be pushed.
    I bet she will even make media senbatsu and get pushed down my throat at full!
    Yuria being in is just a slap in some girls faces once again. Her agency should buy her some votes at least cuz its getting embarassing.
    Katomina is being totally ignored at this point...
    Done ranting.

    O yeah, so let's prepare for Miichan 2018 ?

    Well ... the concept of teams right now is pretty much dead. (Except Team 8). Nothing new in the theater for ages and when there is something it's not that great. The Team representatives songs are still the same very old "AKB sanjou, Korogaru ichi ni nare, Shonichi. And promotion is all about AKB as a whole and individualities.
    How can you rebuild team spirits with that way ?

    Akarin is in because of the NHK election. All of them who ranked Top 16 there are in. As for Rara, Ayanee and Hana, they're the future aces of the groups as they've tried to establish with the Runner's High line up. In fact, they're probaly gonna be everywhere this year, replacing TTMC completely. RIP to Uha.

    And well, Kojiharu is the obvious choice for center because that is what they'll use to hype people up for this single. They can conceptualize concerts and events around her graduation and get the media interested. Imagine if the center was what, Sakura or Yuiyui? The general public wouldn't even bat an eye lid. Also, if anyone, the center should probably be Mayuyu, Mion or maybe even Yui since they're the only ones left who are somewhat relevant.

    I do think it's very sad that most AKB members only get to appear in a single once per year though. :\ Shame that teams got reduced to something so meaningless. They tried working on the lack of team identity by giving A an original stage but practically half of them graduated, making it as good as the other stages, performed as covers. Also with the severe lack of members in A and B, I can't help but feel like there's a shuffle coming. It always happens when important members graduate too (Acchan, Yuko, Takamina/Ricchan and now Kojiharu/Paruru.

    Also, am I the only one that don't want MaYuki to graduate together? Yukirin is dragging Mayuyu down tbh.

    I'll take out my pop cons & watch the show since whatever Aki-P says will most probably be ignored in the senbatsu meeting.

    Like what Trump said to that reporter ... SIT DOWN ... nooo.... SIT DOWN .....
