AKB48 45th Single Senbatsu Sousenkyo


The time has come for the annual akb event. If you are a fan of AKB, you will definitely know about this event. An annual event that you vote for your favourite member in AKB48 Group (AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, HKT48 and NGT48) to be elected in the next Single release. Top 80 members with the most votes will participate in the upcoming Single in August 2016. The voting ticket for this event come from varies methods such as purchasing the CD, be the fan club member or AKB on Demand subscription member.

This year i shall predict the top 16 members and the reason why is that so…

I will start with 16th and end with 1st.

16. Okada Nana (AKB48 Team 4)

The super popular member in Handshake for being too MAJIME. She takes all activities seriously and provide a good fan service in both 2shot and handshake event as well. She was well received by the fans and welcome as the new upcoming member in AKB.

15. Iriyama Anna (AKB48 Team A)

Anyone still remember her? Annin from AKB48 Team A. The highest Rank she received was Rank 20 in the year 2014. Many mentioned that she got Rank 20 due to vote of sympathy however i do not feel it that way. She is strong enough to strike into Top 16. She carries on her AKB activities despite her injury so please do support her.

14. Minegishi Minami (AKB48 Team K)


Being in the group for more than 10 years is really a tough thing. She was not able to secure a top 16 position for the past two years. She is one of the two 1st Generation members left in AKB and she declared that this will be her last SSK. SO….. It may turn out well?

13. Takayanagi Akane (SKE48 Team KII)


She received her highest ranking last year, Rank 14. Despite having not much exposure for the past 1 year, i believe her fans will not allow her to drop out of Top 16 either. The Ace of SKE48 2nd Generation. GO FOR IT!

12. Kitahara Rie (NGT48 Team NIII)


Transferred to NGT48 as Captain, participate in both NGT48 original song. I don’t foresee her dropping out of Top 16? Rank 14 maybe a good position for her as well due to the new competition coming into Top 16.

11. Kodama Haruka (HKT48 Team H / AKB48 Team K)


The Ace of HKT48. She is the original ACE of HKT48 till Tashima Meru stepped as Center position. However, she was well received by the fans and management, she got her 1st center position in HKT48 4th Single “Hikaeme I love you!”. Her popularity started to rise and she got a really good position of Rank 17 in 41st Single as the Center of Undergirls.

10. Suda Akari (SKE48 Team E)


SKE48 required a 2nd prominent member to be in the Senbatsu. She was dropped out of Top 16 last year and she made a very long speech on the stage. The speech may have affected her fans and decided to power vote her in this time round. Don’t estimate the power of SKE48 Oshi. Oh well, just wondering will the Hako Oshi power vote her or Jurina instead?

09. Yokoyama Yui (AKB48 Team A)


Being the 2nd Generation of AKB48, she is well respected by the members and the fans. As one of the prominent AKB48 senbatsu member, i believe Rank 09 will be the right position for her 😀

08. Miyawaki Sakura (HKT48 Team KIV / AKB48 Team A)


Sakura Sake! Sakura tan, unfortunately, i believe that her rank will drop from 7 to 8. Why is that so? many will question why? Her popularity is increasing by alot. Yes i know. But at the same time, she is getting more and more antis. After her center position for Kimi wa melody was announced, negative comments were almost everywhere on why is she receiving so much exposure? This is just my opinion. Anyway, she still do her best to live up to management and fans expectation. I hope this will beneficial for her 😀

07. Shimazaki Haruka (AKB48 Team A)


Salt? Paruru? Yutori? Shimazaki Haruka desu….. I feel that Rank 7 will just be the rank for her as the competition is really tense. The votes may increase as well. She was absent from most of AKB48 activity due to her health and injury issue. I believe she does not want that to happen as well. Recently, she was back to promoting the new single Tsubasa wa iranai in heels. It has been a while since she wore that, at the same time she begin some light dancing in music programs as well. She mentioned this will be her last election as well so… All the best to her. *I voted for her as well… being my 2nd oshi…*

Paruru Screen 1

06. Nyan Nyan Kamen aka Kojima Haruna (AKB48 ?? / AKB48 Team A)


Nyan Nyan Kamen.. Someone from the future? or Kojima Haruna in Disguise? Hahaha… few of the nyan nyan oshi feel that this may be a way for her being a troll and at the same time she is trying to convey a message over to the fans. She mentioned before that she will announce something when everyone is happy.. Maybe that’s true? we dont know… but all i know is… Is time to power vote her in… “I voted her as well”

NNK Screen 1

05. Kashiwagi Yuki (AKB48 Team B / NGT48 Team NIII)


Yukirin. She got 2nd last year and it was a fruitful year for her as well. Getting a 3rd live concert as a solo member, is really fantastic. However, i can’t foresee her getting the same rank as last year. This year will be a battle of the Group Ace… Unfortunately, she was not part of the group ace..

04. Yamamoto Sayaka (NMB48 Team N)


Sayanee, her last SSK as well.. The most prominent member in NMB and the only representative from NMB since milky withdraw her application for SSK. I guess 4th will be the best Rank for her in her AKB48 group history. There might be a chance for her to beat Jurina in Ranking, however, we are not sure about it.

03. Matsui Jurina (SKE48 Team S)


Matsui Jurina, the eternal Ace or soul of SKE48. Since Matsui Rena left, the whole SKE burden lies on her. She is the only SKE48 representative in AKB right now. Her election speech was very stressful and sad. Her fans out there, hope they have heard her and decided to vote her up to top 3.

02. Watanabe Mayu (AKB48 Team B)


Mayuyu, congrats on getting 1st in preliminary round. However, i am unable to expect or foresee her overtaking Sasshi in getting the Top this year. Based on last year votes count, the difference between Sasshi and her was 28,260 votes. I am not saying that, miracle will not happen but i just unable to foresee her getting 1st. However, miracles do happen… Mayuyu, all the best.

01. Sashihara Rino (HKT48 Team H)


1st is Koi Suru Fortune Cookie and 2nd turned out to be Halloween Night. Rank 1st in 2013 and 2015 election. Will she be able to grab the Rank 1 again this year? Will she break the curse of “not getting 1st consecutively”? We shall see. Sasshi’s fans are really strong and i am sure they wont disappoint her either. Oh well, we shall see the result later on BS SKY and Fuji Tv live stream.


All the best girls.



Nyan Nyan Kamen


Who is Nyan Nyan kamen? Nyan Nyan Kamen is an AKB48 Member from Year 22XX. She submitted her sousenkyou application on 23 March 2016 4PM JST.


Reference: http://ameblo.jp/akihabara48/entry-12142385440.html and http://ameblo.jp/akihabara48/entry-12147145258.html

Rumors said that She is Kojima Haruna in disguise or some graduates in disguise. However the identity of  Nyan Nyan Kamen was leaked by Kojima Haruna by accident on Twitter.


The tweet was removed few minutes after the post. The official identity was only revealed in the SSK 2016 Book.


A twitter account is created as well: https://twitter.com/nyan2kamen

What make it even funnier is the SSK appeal video. Kojima Haruna appeared only at the last few seconds in the video.

Many AKB48 fans raged on her troll actions and there are fans who were happy that she run this election as well. It might be a gimmick or it may be an agreement between Kojima Haruna and the management or a hint to something. We do not know the real reason behind this.

AKB48 Official Channel uploaded Story of Nyan Nyan Kamen Episode 01 as well. Ermm… look like a parody.. oh well.. She will also participate in Both Stage Fighter and AKB Otoge game.


Anyway, lets talk about the Top 5 Reasons to vote for Nyan Nyan Kamen!

  1. Kojima Haruna Look alike
  2. She came from the future 😀
  3. She make the election more interesting
  4. This may be her 1st and last SSK
  5. This may be “Kojima Haruna” Last SSK

As a fellow AKB48 fans, please give her your support too 😀

nyan nyan kamen

She received Rank 11 in the preliminary round of 8th SSK. Lets hope for the best and see her grabbed the Kami 7 Seat!

Review: AKB48 43rd Single “君はメロディー”

This review is late for about 2 months but……… The long waited AKB48 43rd Single Titled Kimi wa Melody had released!!! WASSHOI!! What make it even better is that, the legend members of AKB48 returned for this single only. Anyway, it is the 10th Anniversary single, so it does make sense right?


The senbatsu members were announced in December 2015 and these caused a lot of comments about bringing back the graduated members and not focusing on the current members. Oh Well… I love this single though.

Type A LEType A R

1. 君はメロディー (Senbatsu)君はメロディー

Team A: Kojima Haruna, Takahashi Minami, Shimazaki Haruka, Yokoyama Yui, Iriyama Anna
Team K: Minegishi Minami, Mukaichi Mion
Team B: Kashiwagi Yuki, Watanabe Mayu, Kato Rena
Team S: Matsui Jurina
Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka
Team H: Sashihara Rino
Team KIV: Miyawaki Sakura
Team SII: Miyazawa Sae
Team NIII: Kitahara Rie
Graduated Members: Maeda Atsuko, Oshima Yuko, Shinoda Mariko, Itano Tomomi

When this was 1st performed in RH2016, the response was not good as it was expected to be. Sakura is selected to be the Center of the song and the responses received were “Why Sakura?, she is not even a full fledged AKB member” etc. Personally i got no issue with her being the center. A very catchy song with the Kimi wa melody kimi wa melody as the chorus. Simple choreography without much dance step. Most probably it was catered to the graduates as they may not have time to practice another dance song due to their tight schedule. The PV is awesome and beautiful. The PV is directed by Mika Ninagawa and she is famous for all the colourful and flower theme. Somehow it goes well with this song :D. Love it!!

02. LALALAメッセージLALALAメッセージ

Team A: Owada Nana, Taniguchi Megu, Iriyama Anna
Team K: Mukaichi Mion, Tano Yuka, Mutou Tomu
Team B: Kato Rena, Oshima Ryoka, Goto Moe, Kizaki Yuria
Team 4: Kojima Mako, Kawamoto Saya, Okada Nana, Komiyama Haruka, Murayama Yuiri, Takahashi Juri

I was expecting some dance song since Mion is the center of the song. However, it turned out to be the usual Undergirls song. It wasn’t that bad after all but it definitely not up to my liking. Mion the next rising star / Heavy rotation successor chosen by Oshima Yuko. Looking forward to 44th Single as she will be the center of the song again. LA LA LA MESSAGE DE…..

03. Gonna Jump (SKE48)Gonna Jump

Team S: Rion Azuma, Masana Oya, Ryoha Kitagawa, Jurina Matsui
Team KII: Yuna Ego, Mina Oba, Sarina Sōda, Akane, Takayanagi, Nao Furuhata
Team E: Kanon Kimoto, Haruka Kumazaki, Rara Goto, Aya Shibata, Maya Sugawara, Akari Suda, Marika Tani

Another boring PV. Another version of Melon Juice and kibouteki refrain. Is it me but is too fresh for me? I guess i am expecting something better from SKE since SKE never failed to surprise me with their songs in AKB. 1st is Escape and Sekai naiteru nara. Goto Rara chan center for the 1st time and shall give credit to it..

Type B LEType B R

04. しがみついた青春 (NMB48)CbvWJvfUkAASCmh

Team N: Yuri Ota, Yuka Kato, Kei Jonishi, Ririka Suto, Sayaka Yamamoto, Akari Yoshida
Team M: Azusa Uemura, Miru Shiroma, Airi Tanigawa, Reina Fujie, Sae Murase, Fuuko Yagura
Team BII: Konomi Kusaka, Nagisa Shibuya, Shu Yabushita, Miyuki Watanabe

Wao wao wao… what we got here… Another awesome NMB song. This song give me the feeling of Seishun no laptime part 2 without Yamada Nana Baba. The lyrics are well written too. This song fit NMB really well. Thumbs up! Atsu no tame ni!! Well… Yea!!! Been repeating this song for months….. Weeeee…

Type C LEType C R

05. Make Noise (HKT48)Make Noise

Team H: Chihiro Anai, Mashiro Ui, Yui Kojina, Haruka Kodama, Riko Sakaguchi, Rino Sashihara, Meru Tashima, Miku Tanaka, Natsumi Matsuoka, Nako Yabuki
Team KIV: Aika Ota, Serina Kumazawa, Mio Tomonaga, Sakura Miyawaki, Aoi Motomura, Madoka Moriyasu

Finally, Sasshi centered a song in HKT48 and is not a flash mob song. A FAST BEAT AND POP SONG FOR HKT!! Been waiting for this… Finally HKT48 moved out of the kawaii type of song. At least for once i am happy with that. Love the beat and it has been my ringtone since then… sweet….

Type D LEType D R

06. Maxとき315号 (NGT48)Maxとき315号

Team NIII: Ogino Yuka, Oguma Tsugumi, Kato Minami, Kitahara Rie, Sato Anju, Sugahara Riko, Takakura Moeka, Tano Ayaka, Nakai Rika, Nishigata Marina, Hasegawa Rena, Honma Hinata, Murakumo Fuka, Yamaguchi Maho, Yamada Noe
NGT48 Kenkyuusei: Otaki Yuria, Kado Yuria, Kusakabe Aina, Seiji Reina, Takahashi Mau, Nakamura Ayuka, Nara Miharu, Nishimura Nanako, Mizusawa Ayaka, Miyajima Aya

An awesome start for NGT. The song title is a name for one of the shinkansen linked to Niigata. Nice thought by Aki-P. A fluffy fluffy and cute type of song. Worth listening to it.

Type E LEType E R

07. 混ざり合うもの (乃木坂AKB)混ざり合うもの

Team A: Iriyama Anna, Owada Nana, Kojima Haruna, Shimazaki Haruka, Yokoyama Yui
Team B: Kashiwagi Yuki, Kato Rena
Team S: Matsui Jurina
Team H: Sashihara Rino
Team KIV: Miyawaki Sakura
Nogizaka46: Ikuta Erika, Sakurai Reika, Shiraishi Mai, Nishino Nanase, Fukagawa Mai, Matsumura Sayuri

A very mature and serious song to begin with. This is really a Nogi style of song which defers away from the usual AKB style. I am glad that Nyan nyan got selected as the center of this song. I wonder when will this song be ever performed live. The lyrics i love the most will be どんなにキレイな色と色も
一緒に混ざってしまえば汚くなる. No matter how beautiful the colours are, they are stained when mixed together. It can actually represent lots of meaning… Love it.


08. M.T.に捧ぐ (AKB48 横山チームA)


Obviously, this song is to remember M.T. M.T refer to none other than the AKB best leader Minami Takahashi. She left AKB on 8th of April 2016. Yokoyama Yui took over the ballot and carry on leading AKB. The lyrics means everything abt Takamina. How much she effort and time she gave into AKB. Thank you TKMN. You will be remembered as the 1st General Manager of AKB48.

Overall Rating of this single: 4/5.
Song Ranking:

  1. 君はメロディー
  2. 混ざり合うもの
  3. Make Noise / しがみついた青春
  4. Maxとき315号
  5. M.T.に捧ぐ
  6. LALALAメッセージ
  7. Gonna Jump

Congrats to AKB48 grabbing the 1st Spot in Oricon chart for the 1st week.
