This year's 'AKB48 General Elections' to be held in Niigata + Mukaichi Mion announced center for 44th single
March 21, 2016

"AKB48 45th Single General Election" ("The 8th AKB48 General Election" will take place on June 18th at HARD OFF ECO Stadium Niigata in Niigata City. This became known on March 21 during a photo session event for "AKB48 0 to 1 no Aida" at Pacifico Yokohama.

As many of you may know, this is AKB48's biggest annual event. For this year's election, a total of 80 members from 5 groups are eligible to enter to be in the running for senbatsu for AKB48's 45th single.

Just like last year, the election will be held in the candidacy system. Members of AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, HKT48, and NGT48, as well as former AKB48 members who transferred to its overseas sister group (Nakagawa Haruka and Chikano Rina), are eligible to stand as a candidate. The reception desk period for the candidacy will be during March 23 at 4:00 pm to March 27 at 10:00 pm. Further details will be revealed in the coming days.

Sashihara Rino, who stood on top at last year's election, commented, "I kept thinking that this announcement would be made, but now, I feel like its finally come! Just when I have to sell my photo book!! I have a lot to think about. I will think about what to do [stand as a candidate or not] after this." She continued, "Everyone! First, please buy my photo book 'Scandal Chuudoku'!"

During this event, it was also announced that AKB48 Team K's Mukaichi Mion would serve as center for the group's 44th single (currently untitled) to be released on June 1.

Milky one was hinting towards it a while back although it seems the importance for the well-known members below a certain level don't need it as much as others.  Waiting for the random ones again :lol:

For anyone who doesn't remember, she opted out last year as well, looks like she's genuinely not interested in being a part of it.

In all honesty, it will probably simpler to just make specific posts about who's choosing to NOT participate, since the majority of the girls actually will take part. Everyone can just refer back to the webpage that has the list of the members who have registered if they're concerned/want to see if their oshimen has joined or not (link to that page has been added to the OP).

It seems like a lot of members who normally rank are just opting out.  This is making it less interesting.  If Akarin decides to participate, she may return to senbatsu.

i'm quite sad about nyan nyan's graduation announcement as well. but i'm dissapointed at yukirin's 5th rank. i feel like she deserve higher but considering her rivals; jurina and sayanee - she got a pretty high ranking. i don't have any right to express my dissapointment since i did not vote for her. but it's just sad and i feel the need to let this out of my system. i didn't know where to and ah! i realise we have our own forum about akb here. congratulations to sasshi for maintaining her top position though. and mayuyu need to step up her game!! i will forever support yukirin, my kami-oshi.

YUKIRIN FOR LIFE!

I missed the G.E live streaming cuz of my daily acts. But I notice the updates on twtr. Well, must be disappointed for your kami oshi 5th rank. But I remeber Mayuyu said that rank is just a number, it doesn't matter, I will keep working the best. I'm sure that Yukkirin will always do her best for her fans. And I think 5th is not a bad rank too..it still safe. Ah.. MNN.. I just love her too much I think hahahaaa baka me ne
Ah, I read that Yukirin said tha she will grad if MNN grad..
Well..all we can do is wait,see,and support our oshi.

i have to do better next year. ah she said that? not good news for me but i think she has made a stable position in the entertainment industry, like rena. I'll support her still even after she graduate. you're right, though. she'll still do her best for her fans. I'll appreciate her more after this. ;; oh nice MNN.

Alright, so I watched the livestream on Saturday, so I'll post my thoughts. First, it's annoying how the official TV stream changes from SkyBS to Fuji. Fuji is terrible, thankfully there was that Chinese stream which was a lot more like the SkyBS stream.

Usual thoughts on the entrances - who the hell are all these members?

As expected, Nyan Nyan KAMEN stole the show. From not appearing at the member line-up at the start, to her crazy appearance with Yuko as well, both dressed as crazy characters. Shame she took of the mask and admitted to being Kojima Haruna though. And the long awaited graduation announcement.

Myao ranked really low despite management's hype. Never expected her to rank as high as they reckoned, but surprised how low. I like the recent Myao push. I've always liked her and she looks cute.

Didn't realise Sato Sumire-chan was participating this year, she seemed just generally happy and looked great!

Takeuchi Mai (if it was her, I can't remember fully) fell over, that was funny.

Didn't like Jiina's whole act.

Haruppi looked great throughout the whole event - she was so happy cheering for all her teammates when they ranked in. And she got a lot higher than I expected.

Obviously a little disappointed at Mayu coming 2nd, but apparently (I'd completely forgotten) she only got 3rd last year, and the gap between her and #1 was very big. She seemed nervous throughout the whole event but she took it really well and her speech was good - you can read a translation here: https://twitter.com/na_fushigiyaro/status/744234209884004352 She thanked the overseas fans, which was nice, and generally seemed to be happy, despite the disappointment. She's got better at this whole election thing over the years, imo. Nice that she spoke about how AKB is in trouble nowadays. Strange to see it recognised by such a prominent member on such a big stage where everyone will hear it. She also tweeted fairly soon after the event, which is an improvement for her.

(Sorry to mostly talk about Mayu, that's just where my focus is, especially these days when I don't follow the AKB Group like I used to.)

Crazy cheers whenever a HKT girl got a spot. should make it a drinking game. :lol:

Sakura-tan's speech totally did it. Its totally ok to go for no.1 again. She'll break that "sasshi" wall someday.
reminds me...

- She just needs to find a way to get past Sasshi and Takamina. :lol:

Yukirin's 5th is a nice spot. Its a small drop, but she's still in the core group. I'm totally cool with it. :oops:

Same with Mayuyu at 2nd. We're proud of her. :heart:

Course, I didn't want Sasshi getting no.1 again. Because it means we're getting another year full of feel-good singles... wonder when we'll get another cool dance single like Beginner...
But Sasshi totally deserves it. congrats~ :)

I like Mayu recognizing the fact there is concern that newer gen members won't be able to cover the departures of the old gens. The fact that her speech is more about the condition of AKB48 as it is now is really cool.

I'm thinking that when certain members have reached the top, achieved immense popularity etc, and this being an Idol world where membership time of groups is relatively short, naturally there will be a time when they have to start thinking about having a good balance between the state of the group and what they want to do next after they leave, and they better make the most of it when this comes. It will be nice to see the old gens in major events when their participation is not about them, instead it's more about encouraging the new gens to rise.

Mayu saying "I don't want to leave it in this condition" is a thing to look forward to. Hope all elements of AKB48 unite to address this concern so that the group can beautifully evolve over time and just like Mayu wants it, stands the test of time.
