For the other groups, the number of girl's who can participate in the tournmament provided they pass the prelimanary rounds are:

SKE48 - 8
NMB48 - 6
HKT48 - 3

The  preliminary rounds will be held on:

30th June: NMB48 Preliminary / NMB48 KKS Preliminary
4th July: AKB48 KKS preliminary / SKE48 KKS Preliminary
5th July: SKE48 Preliminary
6th July: HKT48 Preliminary / HKT48 KKS Preliminary

AKB48 KKS will move on to the Budokan round, while sister group KKS will move on the second preliminary round with the groups then to Budukan round.
*Jurina and Milky since technically are full time members of K and B, don't have to do prelims. 

And the last announcement was the album of AKB48 which has been scheduled for release on August 15th.

Another Janken tournament ....... getting too repetitive but this means for the girls who have never been in senbatsu to get a chance, so hoping those girls get a chance instead of normal senbatsu because that is after all the whole point of this tournament, so that there is a change in senbatsu.
