Not much of a fan of the AKB Senbatsu elections they hold every June, to me they're a bit of a scam. It's not really an election as the way you vote is to buy their current single to be eligible plus then you also have the right to purchase more votes. So it turns out it's not exactly the most popular member that wins but the member whose fans buy the most singles/votes, that's also why their singles in May end up being their biggest selling one of the year.
Yuki finished #2 in the voting, she's always in the top five but has never ended taking that top spot, for the second time in three years Rino was 'voted' #1. Many popular members withdrew from the competition and really not sure why, perhaps they don't approve of the process either? Anna from this spread here was a member who withdrew. Last year she did so-so in the election, forget her actual place but think it was around #20, the top 16 are the senbatsu members for the next single.
Did a post back in January with this pair and that spread had some promo pics from this set which came out at the end of January. There were a few more pics from this YSWeb spread but didn't include Anna's solo ones, mainly concentrated on Yuki's as mentioned the other day to expect many more posts in the future from her and there will be, she looks absolutely tremendous in these pics.
Welcome to my humble site....
Hajimemashite minna san....welcome to my site on my fave Japanese Pop Culture likes such as dramas, movies, magazine scans, promo events etc. Mainly concentrate on my faves...Erika Toda!... Yuko Oshima... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Masami Nagasawa!.... if you're a fan at all of any of them then you've come to the right place(!) but many others are featured here besides them. Do mainly quick reviews on things I've watched, try to make the reviews brief, quick to read through with not too many spoilers, just whether they're good or bad and why I thought so plus whether you may find them enjoyable. Many, many screenshots are included from everything I've watched plus any video trailers if they're available. Hope you find something that interests you, don't hesitate to comment, arigato gozaimasu!
Few tidbits.... have no idea why the background color constantly changes, think Blogger keeps doing it.
New item on the right is the 'Featured Post of the Day', will be putting some fabulous oldie posts which some of you may have missed the first time around, all will be at least one year old.
