AKB48 32nd Single Senbatsu Election - Final Results

AKB48 has just concluded it's 32nd Single Senbatsu Election (5th Senbatsu Election), and a new center was crowned tonight! The previous election winner Oshima Yuko was ousted from her throne and taking her place with a 20k vote difference between them was HKT48's Sashihara Rino!!! It's a completely new direction in AKB48's book. The release date for the 32nd Single will be 21st August, 2013.

Sashihara took the crown with 150k votes, 50k more than the top spot last year. The total number of votes for just the members in Senbatsu has also increased by an amazing 429k.

An interesting outcome of this year's election is that half of the members in the top 64 are sister group members, inclusive of 1 graduated member. A total of 30 AKB48 girls ranked this year, compared to 34 from the sister groups combined (SKE48: 17, NMB48: 8, HKT48: 3, JKT48: 1, SNH48: 1, Graduated: 1)

Also, each of the 4 sections have centers from different groups. Future Girls is centered by Yabushita Shu from NMB48, Next Girls by Sato Amina from AKB48, representing Under Girls is Shibata Aya from SKE48 and finally the Senbatsu center is HKT48's Sashihara Rino..

However not all was happy news during the election. Upon reviving her rank, AKB48's oldest member and Team A Captain Shinoda Mariko announced her graduation from the group. She has requested that the Fukuoka Dome concert will be her graduation performance. Fukuoka is Mariko's birthplace. It is still unknown her role in the next single.

SNH48's Miyazawa Sae has also announced that she will be rejecting her concurrency in AKB48 Team K, which was announced at the AKB48 Group Rinji Soukai Concert two months ago, to focus solely on SNH48.
