AKB48 Group Unit Janken (Paper, Scissors & Rock) Tournament 2017.

October 1, 2017

This was held on September 24th, at Nippon Gaishi Hall, Nagoya, Japan. I’m a week late, at that time I just got back from a long vacation and didn’t have the time to this this. Til now.

I was going to pass on this post it looks a little confusing at first, it’s a little different this year. Members can form group or units either alone or with other members, I don’t think their is a limit on the amount of members you can have on a unit.

As for the Tournament itself it’s divided up into 4 Blocks with 12 units in each Block , with the winner in each Block advancing to the Final Four.

Juri Takahashi (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).

* Congratulation to Nana Fujita, in winning AKB48 6th Janken Tournament. Finally after seeing 4 AKB48 regular senbatsu winners in the last 4 tournament, we finally get one that isn’t. I was going to say finally a Janken Tournament that looks like it’s not fixed ( the 1st one didn’t look like it was fix either), I think it’s fixed in some places. Not that it matters or I really care, it’s still pure enterainment.

First of all congradulation to Milky for winning, she’ll get to release her first solo single. I like her alot, so will definitely buy it.

I’m not going to say this fixed, but it makes me wonder. That last 4 winners have very popular members. Personaly I don’t really care if this tournament is rigged or not , it’s fun to watch. 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.

AKB48 3rd Janken Tournament.

September 19, 2012

On Tuesday, September 18th. AKB48 held their 3rd Janken (Paper, Scissors and Rock) Tournament, at Nippon Budokan. This will determine the 16 senbatsu members, for their 29th single, which will be release around December of this year. A total of 85 members participated in this tournament, AKB48 Team B member Yuka Masuda withdrew from the tournment. 68 from AKB48, 8 from SKE48, 6 from NMB48 and 3 From HKT48.

I’m just gonna go straight to the Top 16, the senbatsu members that made it for the 29th single.

If interested on how each round went here’s a link – http://www.tokyohive.com/2012/09/in-progress-the-results-of-akb48-29th-single-senbatsu-janken-tournament .

(9-16 Not in Order).

Natsumi Matsubara (Team A) -First time she’s place in the Top 16 in the Janken Tournament.

Yuki Kashiwagi (Team B) – After losing in the 1st Round in the first 2 Janken Tournament, nice to see her make it.

Kasumi Ueno (SKE48 – Team E) – I don’t know who she is, but she is cute. A first timer (Top 16 in a Janken Tournament).

Chisato Nakata (Team A) – Another First Timer, A member you don’t see or hear about. First she ranked in their 4th senbatsu election, now this. So this is good for her.

Ami Maeda (Team A) – 3 for 3 only member to do it, not sure where she place this time around. In 2010 she was 5th, and 7th in 2011.

Ayaka Umeda (Team K) – Umechan good fortune in AKB48 continues, two in row for her.

Kanon Kimoto (SKE48 – Team E) – A first timer.

Tomomi Itano (Team K) – Read Yuki Kashiwagi comment.

(1-8)

8. Maria Abe (Team 4) – A first timer, very happy for her.

7. Miyu Takeuchi (Team 4) – A first timer.

6. Mariko Nakamura (Team 4) – Another First timer, a member I don’t know anything about. Besides what she looks like.

5. Mariko Shinoda (Team A) – Two in a row for her, last year champion.

4. Mayumi Uchida (Team K) – 2010 champion in the 1st Janken Tournament, she was one round away from making top 16 last year. So this proved she’s really good at this, winning the 1st Janken tournament was no fluke. Another member you don’t hear or see, so this is very good for her.

3. Yui Yokoyama (Team K) – A first timer, I’m very, very happy for her.  I like her alot she’s someone that never asks for anything, and is very greateful for whatever she gets.

2. Moeno Nito (Team K) – A first timer, she needs this.

1. Haruka Shimazaki (Team 4) – A First timer. The Ace of Team 4, and a push member. So this is good for the up coming single.
