    My results:

    1) Good, but I was hoping Yukirin would get 1st or 2nd.
    2) Half fail... Takamina improves, but Sasshi beats her.
    3) Kojiharu stays top 7- safe, barely.
    4) Minegishi into top 12, improved (by attrition, haha), but still fail.
    5) Masuda, 17-32, safe.
    6) Sayaka 17-32, safe.
    7) Nakayan 33-48, safe.
    8) Haachan 33-48, safe, barely- maybe 49th would be better
    9) Wasamin 33-48, safe, almost better actually.
    10) Mao 33-48, safe.

    Score = 8.5 --- keep those expectations low and it's not so bad... haha.

    A lot more votes spread around to the less popular members. Rank 20 improved 40% or so, while the higher ranks were largely stable- except that top 2, which were way down with no Acchan/Yuko feud. And... now to sleep. >___>

    Yikes... downside of the time difference is that it's 3a.m. for me when the General Election starts x.x

    Must determine way to make this happen... ^^

    after turning 18, I haven't voted politically for anything related to where I live. But I have been voting for AKB48 for years now.

    So who is the other you voted? Or both for takamina? =D

    Anyways 5:20pm JST is 4:20pm here.. still at work -_- hope to see a replay somewhere.

    Haha, it's 1:20AM here. Yeah, might stay up for a concert (or sleep strategically), but not up all through the night for what amounts to a results show, even if they have some extra entertaining stuff. I figure I'm not going to like the results either. I'll just catch it later and fast forward through most of it.

    Here are my 10 hopes: We'll see hope many I get:
    1) Yuko or Yuki #1. Yukirin's by far a better singer- and frankly the only decent one with a chance at winning, but I think Yuko is better at center for the kind of song I'm hoping to get next.
    2) Takamina higher than Sasshi and Jurina, 7 or better. They're fine and if Sasshi could sing she'd probably be in my top 5, but something about their super-pushed nature hopes that they won't get pushed above the -Leader-.
    3) Kojiharu stays top 7.
    4) Minegishi into top 12.
    5) Masuda, 17-32.
    6) Sayaka 17-32
    7) Nakayan 33-48
    8) Haachan 33-48
    9) Wasamin 33-48
    10) Mao 33-48

    Really, most on this list deserves to be in the top 16 if they were just going on well, skill, but these are realistic hopes that should all be more or less manageable. With any luck, most of the good singers may get stacked into the 2nd or 3rd grouping and we'll have a chance for some good b sides.

    Although important as far as AKB goes, I figure it's about as interesting as a real election. Yeah, what happens at the top is kinda important, but the rest is kinda like school district and water district posts. Gotta say the jankentaikai is pretty much the same. Still, I suppose the more they stream the better, so not exactly complaining. =P
