    Cover photo says all you need to know about this years election. Jmo but Yuko's 1st and Sasshi's 1st & 3rd are the wins that mean anything. All the others were manufactured through careful manipulation. This last is the most blatant..

    So... based on the photo, Jurina #1, Sakura #2, Ogino #3

    ^Joe: Nah ofc they gonna promote the obvious like Jurina Sakura Ogiyuka but the rest of them are just part of "push" (some of them I meant) members like Dasu and Akarin (double Akari!) were never really management faves until they proved themselves. But I was hoping they would put Tomu on the cover geez she's never get the push she deserves

    @tuberose if yui y isnt front and center then it is all wrong. She is a member of akb48 not a past winner and not on a sister group pluse she fills a role as the leader so she is a natural. Nobody expects her to take top so it makes the poster just publicity and stays fair to other members. Jurina and sakura could flanks her. MM, Tomu and kato could also have been center but yui is the perfect fit. This poster is purly propaganda to promote their picks, i bet akip already has jurina's song penned.

    @Joe:either Jurina's or Sakura's song then. I'll be voting for Jurina but it will be awesome if one of the overseas sister groups member managed to snatch the throne instead of those two. I heard BNK48 Cherpang has tons of rich fans
