Such a big family! A married Sister, two teen sisters, two half sisters, one preteen sister and one un-born
So after last year’s success, the farmers are milking AKB for some extra drops of cash this year too as they are holding the 48 Family song battle once again.
In fact they are so going in for the kill that they will be holding SKE48’s own Utagassen.
Which really makes me wonder why SKE48 is then still in the main Utagassen.
It seems they are trying to tell us that SKE48 is big enough to hold their own and yet despite having held their own Request Hour, they are still appearing in the AKB Jan RH.
And now that they have their own Kouhaku Utagassen, they are still appearing in this year’s AKB event which makes me quite a bit upset for some reason.
Make up your damn minds already! Either let SKE go independent and make them real AKB rivals and stop including them into AKB48 events or leave them be a part of the family forever and get rid of the stupid Request hours 30/50/75 for next year and some crap like that!
Seriously, SKE is turning into some daughter who is grown up and is getting married therefore leaving the family but not quite!
It’s frustrating to say the least.
Okay, enough pissing about, let’s get to the topic at hand.
The teams from last time have been shuffled around and taking the big first, while last time the Aces were the captains for either team (Acchan and Korisu), this time around it’s the general Manager and Captain of Team A that are the captains for either team.
Takamina for the White team and Mariko-sama for the Red Team.
As for the teams themselves, Even before you see the full list you will know what team I am already supporting. Here is a simple comparison to let you know which team…
White Team (Takamina .C)
Red Team (Mariko-sama .C)
Seriously, it’s like 90% of the girls I dig in the 48Family are all in the White Team!
No matter how great a fanatics Team Red supporters are, there is just no way they are winning this one!
Popularity-wise alone, (which we know has a play in the out-come, no matter how much we want to think otherwise) Team White OWNs red!
First off Yuko, THE ONE, has to take on Numbers 2 and 3 and if we start going on about their advs, that battle is already lost.
Then the most interesting is all the couples that are in White Team!
Seriously, look at those couples!
- Mayuki (obviously)
Sorry guys, I think I best stop here before I run out of space!
Okay, I take the equality of Team distribution back. Other than the fact that My Oshii have been split up evenly within the Teams, With My 1st and 3rd in white while my 2nd and 4th are in red (Rena and Sakura people) , nothing after that is equal!
Last time my instincts (and love for Yukirin) did not abandon me and this time around, I am sure they won’t when I say that White Team is taking this one too!
Sure Red Team has most of the ‘voices’ to ratios of about 5:1 compared to White but Never forget that fans will be voting through youtube and G+ so favouritism will be part of the equation, that is if they do it like last year.
Some thing that White won because of the numbers (not true) so will Red win this time because of numbers too? it seems to out-number Red by around 12 girls but seeing as most of them are really still green-bottomed (I don’t know almost 30% of the Red team girls at all) this will be very interesting!
Any way, have a look at the full listing after the jump and let us know what you think of the line-up.
