AKB48 has just uploaded all 254 appeal videos for the upcoming AKB48 32nd Single Senbatsu Election, taking place on 8th June, 2013 at the Nippon Budokan. The videos can be viewed on AKB48's YouTube channel, as well as the official election website.


This election is to select the senbatsu members who will participate in AKB48's 32nd single, which will be released sometime in August 2013. There will be a total of 64 members elected:

1-16: Senbatsu
17-32: Undergirls
33-48: Next Girls
49-64: Future Girls

There are 12 different methods to get a voting ticket for this election, and the voting period will be open from 21st May to 7th June 2013, a day before the election at the [AKB48 Super Festival at Nissan Stadium]. The methods of getting a voting ticket are:

1. AKB48 "Twin Pillars" Fanclub Membership

12. 1 voting slip will be including in each copy of AKB48's 31st single, limited, regular, and theatre editions.

Melos: The best thing about the appeal videos is that the participating members are allowed to do whatever they choose on their appeal videos. While some members will the the video seriously and voice out the reasons on why they should be voted and how they can reduce the global carbon emission, others just take it as their 1 minute of fame. The members will show their skills, some will come up with funny skits and others will dress up in elaborate costumes. You will get to see the crazy side of the girls.
