Whoa. This is more crazy than the real AKB election, which had fewer candidates.
Edit: The actual result will probably be announced any moment now, as Akimoto has said that he’ll do so at July 10th, 2015 @ 10pm JST.
It seems the Senbatsu for the staff version of Halloween Night is being delayed again as Akimoto Yasushi reports that 302 staff members have announced their candidacy. This news comes courtesy of a series of posts from Akimoto’s 755 account.
Akimoto: “I would have liked to announce the Halloween Night staff version music video senbatsu, but the selection process has been very difficult. As to why, the number of candidates, who are all staff related to the AKB groups, is 302 people. What? I was surprised to know that AKB group has so many staff members. I don’t really know by just looking at the papers, but I’m asking about everyone’s personality, and how they work. 302 people is crazy.”
Akimoto: “Sorry that the staff senbatsu is late, but looking through the paperwork, I’ve narrowed it down to 44 people from 302. I’m going to be announcing the senbatsu result today @ 10pm”
Akimoto: “To every waiting for my writings, sorry. With the staff senbatsu, everyone is discussing the staff senbatsu with all their strength. That’s what the AKB48 group is all about.”
I’m writing about useless and stupid things a lot, and I like to laugh. My policy is 一期一会。It means treasure your meeting with everyone!
