AKB48 34th Single Janken Tournament Announced

AKB48 will hold a janken (rock-paper-scissors) tournament to determine the senbatsu members for their 34th single. This tournament will take place in the Nippon Budokan on 18th September 2013. This was announced over the weekend at a [Sayonara Crawl] national handshake event at the Kyocera Dome, Osaka.

This will be the 4th janken tournament AKB48 have held to determine the senbatsu members of their singles. Here are the previous winners and the resulting singles:

2010Uchida Mayumi[Chance no Junban]
2011Shinoda Mariko[Ue Kara Mariko]
2012Shimazaki Haruka[Eien Pressure]

All full members of AKB48 are participating in this tournament. There will be preliminary rounds to decide the following additional members:

2 x AKB48 Kenkyuusei
8 x SKE48
8 x NMB48
3 x HKT48

In addition, there will be other preliminary rounds to determine the sister group kenkyuusei who will proceed into the sister group rounds. The number of kenkyuusei who will proceed to the main sister group rounds is as follows:

2 x SKE48 Kenkyuusei
2 x NMB48 Kenkyuusei
2 x HKT48 Kenkyuusei

Looks like AKB48 is sticking to the formula this year as regards to singles, we've had the sakura single, the bikini beach election ticket single, election winning single, all we need now is the so-called "cool" single before this janken single.
