AKB48 Draft Meeting Results

On November 10th, all 48 groups held the first AKB48 Group Draft Meeting. Team captains together with four other representatives of their team picked new team members from a pool of 29 candidates.

After the candidates performed [River] and [Aitakatta] in groups and were questioned by hosts and the team captains, the actual draft took place. 20 girls were drafted. The most were picked by Team KII which chose 5 girls while Team S, N, M and H decided to draft only one.

Two girls were picked by several teams: Sutou Ririka by Team KII, Team E and Team N and Kawamoto Saya by Team B, S, KII, E  and H. The decision which team gets them had to be made by lottery which left Sutou with N and Kawamoto with B.

The drafted girls will now enter into negotiations with the respective teams and they still have the right to decline joining the team until December.

The girls who were not picked will be automatically in the final audition round if they decide to participate in the next AKB48 group auditions
