Sousenkyo appeal commentary videos have been released! Here is Nyan-nyan Kamen’s sousenkyo election appeal video with English subtitles.
The AKB48 Senbatsu Sousenkyo Museum is a temporary exhibit to celebrate the current year’s election, and will be featured in two locales in western and eastern Tokyo.
This year’s election has brought with it a good number of non-participants with popular and unpopular members alike. While wota may not have full insight on what goes on in an idol’s life, non-participation still begs the question: what is the advantage, if any, of choosing to not partake in AKB’s annual election?
