AKB48 Music Video Request 2012 Results

The full results of AKB48's Music Video Request 2012 are in. Fans could vote for a song which did not already have a music video using voting slips inside the regular versions of the album [1830m]. The top three songs have had music videos made which are included in different types of AKB48's 29th single [Eien Pressure] (see the full tracklisting here for details).

The results up to position 20, with number of votes per song, are below:

1. Team B Oshi (7,236)
2. First Rabbit (4,244)
3. Sakura no Hanabira ~Maeda Atsuko solo ver.~ (4,173)

4. Shonichi (2,792)
5. Shoujotachi yo (2,600)
6. Nakinagara Hohoende (2,102)
7. Itoshiki Natasha (2,000)
8. Kimi to Boku no Kankei (1,941)
9. Yokaze no Shiwaza (1,828)
10. Hashire! Penguin (1,826)
11. Heart Gata Virus (1,776)
12. Only Today (1,525)
13. Omoide no Hotondo (1,366)
14. Avocado Jane~shi... (1,292)
15. Mammoth (1,280)
16. Plastic no Kuchibiru (1,250)
17. Temedemo no Namida (1,219)
18. Scandalous ni Ikou (1,084)
19. Sougen no Kiseki (1,038)
20. Kanojo ni Naremasu ka? (953)

Since Acchan has graduated, they have not filmed new footage of her for her solo music video, as they had previously announced they wouldn't use graduated members. Instead, they will use archive footage of her.

I'm not surprised that Team B Oshi won, although it's quite a boring choice. Team B were also well represented in the top five with Shonichi. The two lead songs from the documentary films and original albums, First Rabbit and Shoujotachi yo, also placed high. Personally I voted for Hashire! Penguin and was hoping for it to rank higherk only two votes away from #9. I wonder if the results from this will affect Request Hour voting in any way.
