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.

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.
