I would normally say vote for your own oshi but that cannot be done!! You must vote for Ohori Megumi! Meetan!! ( no vote for who you want ) I had no plans to vote in the AKB48 5th Senbatsu Elections, For one I'm back in America so voting would be a hassle and 2 my Oshimen Mayuyu needs no help from me getting high ranking.
My attention to the election would have ended there, But a Skype call with a good friend in Yokohama changed everything. She asked if I had any plans on voting in the 5th Senbatsu, I told her no I didn't. She was shocked and said " But Meetan and Noro need votes !" That made me stop, both Noro Kayo and Ohori Megumi ( Meetan was my old Oshi ) had been out of AKB after SND48 had broken up, My friend told me that the 5th Senbatsu was going by new rules and former members with 4 years in the AKB family could run. This at first made me think this was some last effort to keep Asuko around after her graduation, but she isn't running in the elections. I confirmed what she told me and than had her buy 10 copies of the election single and vote 10 times! ( 3 for Noro 7 for Meetan! )
I'm so happy to see Meetan return for a AKB48 event and the Senbatsu elections no less ! I still have 4 copies of "Amai Kokansetsu" (Meetan's single) all 4 still in unopened. I hope against hope that
Meetan places high, goo luck Meetan!!
My next post I'll talk about how I first got in to AKB48 and then got out. ( more like escaped ) Than AKB0048 got me back in.
