Shukan AKB, a TV programme on AKB48, recently started and activated a new project. This project is known as Sashihara Project as the main focus of this project was the AKB48 Team A member Sashihara Rino or known by members as Sasshi. She currently owns an Ameba Burogu named “指原クオリティー (Sashihara Quality)” which is on the same server as fellow Team A member Maeda Atsuko and other AKB48 members such as Oshima Yuko.

Ameba has a ranking function added to their site showing and weighing the popularity of Ameba Blog’s owned by celebrities and people. The two other named members have received considerable popularity from fans and emerged as the top two in the AKB48 internal elections and their blog rankings are also considerably high on the charts withMaeda Atsuko’sblog being ranked at the top frequently.
The Sashihara Project aimed to bring Sashihara Rino’s blog to first placing in that Ameba Blog ranking. The road to achieve that goal was to have Sashihara Rinoclock in 100 blog entries within a span of 24 hours. Prior to this project, the highest ranking she ever achieved was second and in the first place during that time was Maeda Atsuko.
Upon the initiation of this project on 04 December 2010, Sasshi entered her first entry at 00:00 Japan time and rounded up her day with her last entry at 23:55. Each of her post had an average of 2000 comments bringing the total number of comments for her blog that day to a staggering 200000 comments. This brought her to the top of the charts landing her a place at the much coveted first place of Ameba Blog Ranking. She dethroned Maeda Atsuko and clinched the first place.
With that Sashihara Project has achieved its objective of bringing the blog to the top of the rankings. This much could not have been possible without the fans’ support.
