    Unit Janken is fine if they:
    - Triple the introduction time to focus on the girl costumes, rather than the light-speed one last year,
    - Put more money and efforts on the costumes. No more cheap and lazy daily costume show.

    I'm hyped this. This event really brought the excitement back into the 48g so I'm glad it's back.

    I know that, I was asking if she did do what she said she was going to do next year (this year) after it was announced (when she said 1 second after it was lol).

    A single debut is still pretty prestigious even if they only sell 10k, lots of established artists only sell that much now.

    Still I don't disagree with you, perhaps the prize could be a concert a la the solo concerts during RH. That could be risky though if a less popular girl won. It'd probably be ok is a group of less/mid popular girls won.

    Didn't really like the last single that came out nor thought the event was that interesting compared to group janken. I understand why they have to do it this way, but I find it a lot more anticlimactic.

    Maybe it will be more interesting if Jurina's trophy runs for a solo spot.

    The singles that came from the last 3 Janken Tournaments are half-assed imho. Hoped they would change it back to the first prize but oh well. I am never interested in this thing (since 2015) anyways

    I just had a fun thought. If you could make a Janken prize what would it be?

    3 AKBINGO episodes around the winner, like what Naachan got back then. I am sure it has a bigger impact than a solo single, particularly with unpopular members.
