Final Results of AKB48 6th General Senbatsu Election (2014).

June 9, 2014

The final results of AKB48 6th Senbatsu General Election was announced, on June 7th. At Ajinmoto Stadium.

This is where fans can vote for the members who they want to be senbatsu in AKB48 37th single, which will be released in August of this year. Voting peroid for this election was from May 20th to June 6th, several ways you could have voted. Most of the votes probably came from buying AKB48 36th single ‘Labrador Retriever’, which had 1 voting ballot in each CD.

A Total of 296 members from AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, HKT48 and Team Kaigai announce their candidacy to participate in this election.

I had 8 voting ballots they all went to my favorite AKB48 member Haruna Kojima.

It’s a Top 80 this year.

65-80 Upcoming Girls.

49-64 Future Girls.

33-48 Next Girls.

10. Akari Suda (SKE48 – Team E Captain) – To me this is abit of a surprise, every year her rankings continues to improved kinda big time. 3 SKE48 members in the top 10. 48,182 votes.o0300036512930009155

7. Haruka Shimazaki (AKB48 – Team A) – She’s heading in the right direction, I guess it will just be a matter time. For this super heavily push member, hopefully the time will never run out. 67,591 votes.adc86cb825b5757faa3a76ec6bfabc8c

6. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain and AKB48 – Team K) – I’m very surprise here. It’s been along time awaiting, The Center and Ace of NMB48 should be ranked around here. 67,916 votes.6ce31e270626408912088d3a5cc59eaf

3. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NMB48 – Team N) – Another number 3 ranking for her, considering who’s ranked ahead of her. I guess this is like being number one. 104, 364 votes.c729d876824c1bcef7e11fa1e54d17a3

2. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team K) – I’m glad she didn’t come on top, if she did that would have been 2 in row. Acchan or Yuko never won 2 in row. 141,954 votes.news_large_sashihararino_art20140521

1. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B) – This is an upset, but I wouldn’t say it’s a surprise. Sasshi had almost 50,000 votes more than Mayu last year, I like to know where all those votes she got came from, maybe she has Yuko, to Thank. 159,854 votes.af43e686104c9d1206f39e540ec00420

Congratulations to Mayu for being Center on AKB48 upcoming single, not that she wasn’t going to be center anyways.

Rina Kawaei not in the picture, she’s recovering from hrt injuries.

*Edit – I just had to add this I wrote on the picture above Rina Kawaei, was not present for the picture cause she was recovering from her injuries. She probably was. I don’t know where or when the pîcture was taken, if it was at the stadium or not. Anyways today (June 16) I finally managed to watch the AKB48 6th senbatsu election on video. Ricchan was actually there, she made a special appearance, I don’t think anyone expected her to be there. When they annonunce her name at #16, out she comes. Anna Iryiama wasn’t there though. It was nice to see Miku Tanabe and Yukiko Kinoshita reaction, when their names was announce. Also Riho Abiru. Hearing their speeches made me cry. You can add Rina Ikoma to that list also when they announce her name, I don’t know if she was shocked, acting or just out of it. It was kinda funny to watch, she really did look out of it.

How well did I do in my predictions, let’s see.
