It’s alot of fun for the fans and members. Just like many fans I don’t really care about the results, I’m more interested in seeing what costume the members are wearing.

This the single were the fans voted on who they wanted to participate in the single 1-16 (Senbatsu). 17-32 Under Girls, 33-48 Next Girls, 49-64 Future Girls, 65-80 Upcoming Girls. This single was released in 9 versions including the Theater Edition.

This single ain’t bad I like all tracks on the single (All Versions), their ain’t any great songs here. But none that I hate. And I love the CD Covers, it’s one of their Best. Fun and funny. More times than not I think AKB48 CD Covers are shitty, unimaginative, plain and boring.
