A handful of Japanese netizens ponders the pros and cons of removing 48-group’s strongest front runner from the annual election. What would happen if Sashihara Rino did not participate in the AKB48 Election?
Hi there. Welcome to “2chan says.” I will be attempting to translate selected threads from Japanese message board 2chan (aka, 2ch or 2channel), purely for interest and entertainment purposes (and for translation practice). The opinions expressed here belong to the anonymous Japanese internet at large, and do not necessarily reflect the view of akbzine; plus, this page could be riddled with translation errors anyway.

If Sashihara did not enter, it would be more interesting.
She should provided us with the commentary!

It’s a good thing for her, since she basically gets her own song each year.

She’s so strong, it’s boring.

Since she is at the top and center, the real election is for everyone #2 and below.

Actually, if you force the strongest person to leave, it’ll become more boring when we see who becomes #1 after that. I want Sasshi to run in the election next year too.

For me, I look forward to the other things about the election too. I’m from Niigata, so I might be biased, but I’m curious about their rankings.

I really want to see what happens if the current top 16 did not participate.

If the top prize was a photo book of the winner, all the wota would go crazy!

We should just let her take the top spot for two years in a row, and then let her graduate

Even though it’s what I wanted, in 2014 when Mayuyu took the top spot, everyone in the event space was crazy happy. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but it looks like Sasshi will win again this time.

Conversely, even if she appeared for the next 30 years, she would still probably win without even trying.
