    Actually it is rather misleading to say that those girls are seeded ........ [think]
    They still play the same amount of matches as many other girls
    Only 14 girls need to play in the first round and the rest start with the second round, including those seeded.

    The bracket looks fierce. I wonder how it'll end up?

    ...somehow I hope Ucchi wins again. If that happens, will Aki-P think of another game to play for next year's autumn single senbatsu? 8'DD Besides, Ucchi looks like the kind of person who is really good in janken, and--well, I just associate her with janken.

    And I tried doing it with dice rolls.

    Shimada Haruka
    Iwasa Misaki
    Suzuki Shihori
    Masuda Yuka
    Kobayashi Marina
    Kojima Haruna
    Oshima Yuko
    Fujie Reina

    Yogi Keira
    Chikano Rina
    Iriyama Anna
    Kasai Tomomi

    Miyazaki Miho
    Kuwabara Mizuki

    Tanabe Miku

    Sato Mieko

    And I feel conflicted with the result. Sure, Myao get 3rd/4th (which I hope to be true in reality ;_____;) but I kind dislike the idea of a non-AKB girl to center an AKB single.

    I'd just like to say, FUUUUUUU D BRACKET. It makes it impossible for for Miichan, Amina, Uchii to be in media senbatsu together. If there is yet another thing that i say i want to be the only thing to happen in this world, was to have those 3 (+harugon) occupying the top spots.

    Harugon and Natsumi need to get as high as they can in the a bracket
    Mariyannu needs to get as high as she can in the c bracket

    So far im not liking the odds for my oshis D:

    A Nakagawa Haruka (or an NMB girl)
    B Ota Aika (or Acchan, but mostly Rabutan!)

    D anyone
    E Fujie Reina
    F Kasai Tomomi (or Minarun)
    G Nagao Mariya (or Suuchan)
    H Kuwabara Mizuki (why not throw an SKE girl in there? But really anyone is fine)
    I Nito Moeno (or Shiichan)
    J Takahashi Minami
    K Takeuchi Miyu
    L anyone
    M Minegishi Minami!! <3
    N Sato Amina (or Myao)

    If the least popular girls were to win every time, it might look something like this:

    01 - Keira Yogi
    02 - Shihori Suzuki
    03 - Rena Shimada
    04 - Runa Fujita
    05 - Rina Izuta
    06 - Misato Nonaka
    07 - Tomomi Nakatsuka
    08 - Mizuki Kuwabara
    09 - Miku Tanabe
    10 - Shiori Nakamata
    11 - Yuuki Yamaguchi
    12 - Mariya Suzuki
    13 - Haruka Shimada
    14 - Mai Takeuchi
    15 - Anna Iriyama
    16 - Mayumi Uchida

    Broken down by teams:

    K - 4
    4 - 3 (including Iriyama)
    NMB KKS - 3
    B - 2
    AKB KKS - 1
    S - 1
    E - 1
    N - 1

    So...a "worst case scenario," if you will :lol:

    Though, I'd be quite pleased with a few of those...

    Some interesting things I (and everyone else) saw:
    -Sayaka versus Acchan. I can't imagine a better pair. I'd be hard-pressed to agree with anyone who thinks Maeda should win this one.
    -Kashiwagi versus Kikuchi. Original Team B second-in-command girls. Crossing my fingers for an Under Girl victory here.
    -Shimazaki versus Fujie. The battle of the Acchans. (9th generation versus 4th generation)
    -Possible Kasai versus Natsuki. Last time N had to go against her friend and senbatsu member Sae for a spot, now the same, but with Kasai. Maybe.
    -Sumire versus Nagao. I feel like Nagao subs for Sumire. But I'm probably off.
    -The first half of block C. No front girls besides the forever-pushed, never-popularized Moeno.
    -Kojima versus Takahashi. Hoping for Kojima. Takamina gets enough promotion already.
    -Chikano versus Shinoda. Mariko should just forfeit so she can focus on her well-paying career.
    -Jurina versus Sae. I've always seen them as similar idols, as both are skinny and focus on dancing. Go Sae, go. Don't you dare lose.
    -Rie versus Itano. I don't care for either, but this'll get coverage. Haachan will hopefully get this spot anyway.
    -The last position. Crap. I don't know why the Yuko versus Ami thing is a thing, since Ami isn't very popular at all. But they share a spot with Sasshi. And Ucchi. So, regardless, we're getting more Sasshipushhi. Darn. If Ucchi wins that match, Sasshi will get "Oh, shucks, you lost!" coverage, and if she wins, she'll get "Wow! You beat the Janken queen!" coverage. Lose-lose.
    -Also, there's a possibility of 3/4 of senbatsu being SKE, NMB, and KKS/Team 4.

    I'm so sad to see my two favorite underdogs, Shii-chan and Tanamin, in the same block. Other then that, I'm looking forward to the results~

    I think fate is trolling me [boom] Last year, it put Mayuyu and Acchan, my two favorite girls, in the same block, and then they actually faced each other in the 2nd round -___-

    This year, I was looking at the bracket and that was the first thing I looked for. "Phew, different block for Mayuyu and Acchan! Safe!" said my naive self. And then I looked at one name below and I was "......Damn it!!!!!!!" because now she might face Yui in the 2nd round instead. [boom] A year later and girls I really like are still pitted against each other in the 2nd round. You trolling, random drawing, you trolling.

    And I'm not sure how to feel about Mayuyu against Nakayan in the first round, seeing as they're both members of the Wota 4. On one hand, that might make it harder for them to go against each other since they're such good friends, but on the other hand, that might make for less hard feelings after one beats the other.

    Will be an interesting September day. My hopeful, ideal, bracket later, back to work for now.

    Well, I feel stupid now. In hindsight, it kind of makes sense...but yeah, that totally flew over my head.

    Wow, this should be very interesting to see. It'll be worth a couple of lulz to see Saeyaka knock out the 'faces' of two of the xxx48 family. :hehe:
