AKB48 2016 Janken Tournament.

AKB48 2016 (7th) Janken Tournament (Paper, Scissors& Rock), which was held in Kobe World Kinen Hall on October 10, 2016.

I usually look forward to this it’s fun to watch, not so this year. Maybe because they did it in October, instead of around September. 98 members participated in this event.

It’s a little different this year as #1-#7 will form a unit, and #8-#14 will get to the do the B-side of the single (I guess). Top 14?, instead of the usually Top 16. So how it works their’s 7 blocks, 2 from each block will make the Top 14. then……

Top 14 :

Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team 4).

First time she made top 14, or Top 16 as it was before. Other than that she lost either in the 1st or 2nd round the previous 4 years.1170362_1200Saya Kawamoto (AKB48 – Team 4).

You could say she’s had a very good year, this year. Also ranking 27th in the election.011_size9Mako Kojima (AKB48 – Team 4).

In her 4th Janken Tournament she finally made it in to the 4th round.003_size9Mayu Ogasawara (AKB48 – Team A).

She announced her graduation on October 14th, it looks like maybe a few AKB48 members leaving by the end of year. She’s a 1st Generation NMB48.cqqlsnuumaazq-wYuka Tanaka (HKT48 – Team KIV).

Her 1st AKB48 Janken Tournament, she did pretty well.1465878761570Manami Ichikawa (AKB48 – Team K).

Here’s an AKB48 member I haven’t heard or seen for a long time, looks just as cute & pretty as before.timgMariya Suzuki (AKB48 – Team K).

Since SNH48 declaration of independence from AKB48, she back to being a full time AKB48 member now. She as participated in all of AKB48 7 Janken Tournaments, losing in the 1st round in 4 of them.suzuki-mariya-akb48

5-7.

Rena Nozawa (AKB48 – Team 4).

I’m so happy for this former JKT48 member, since joining AKB48 she hasn’t really had any good luck. Maybe except joining AKB48.nozawarena2016Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).

Her first AKB48 Janken Tournment, good result.015_size9Seina Fukuoka (AKB48 – Team B).

She made Top 16 last year losing to eventual Champion Nana Fujita, unfortunately Nana last in the 1st round this year.280px-fukuokaseina2016

3-4.

A lot of Team 4 made Top 14.008_size9

In 2013 AKB48 Janken Tournament she made Top 16.e215bf499bb5a630673ee0dc7174baa4

Winner

Miku Tanabe (AKB48 – Team B).

She ranked 12th in AKB48 1st Janken Tournament in 2010, in between the 1st and the 7th which she won. She lost either in the 2nd or 3rd round.

Congraduations to Miku.bandicam-2016-10-11-15-58-07-184

I can’t believe it not a single AKB48 regular senbatsu member made Top 14, the 1st time ever. Oops my mistake it’s not obvious but Mako Kojima is.

 

Top 7 (Doesn't Saki Takeuchi look so cute there).
