Results of AKB48, 4th Janken Tournament.

AKB48 held their 4th Janken (Rock, Paper and Scissors) Tournament, Wednesday September18th, at Nippon Budokan. A total of 83 members participated, in the tournament. 53 AKB48 Members plus 4 Research Students, 8 SKE48, 7 NMB48, 3 HKT48 and also members that are serving a concurrent position. 2 withdrawals NMB48 “Rikako Kobayashi”, due to injury. And AKB48 “Shiori Nakamata” who announce she will graduate from AKB48, not that long ago. I’m not sure, but I think her last AKB48 activity will be on September 23rd.

The Top 16 will be the “Senbatsu Members”, for AKB48 34th single. Which will be release in December of this year. Previous  Janken Tournament Winners are Mayumi Uchida in 2010, Mariko Shinoda in 2011 and Haruka Shimazaki in 2012.
