    Their 2nd short term stage/act, now in halls 3-4 times bigger than the first one, and 20 performances. You can see details and results for the 1st one here. The same voting system will probably be used once again.

    Voting System
    The voting system will happen during the interval of each theater show. After the 1st half, with all the members performing, 16 are chosen after the voting to participate in the 2nd half, with the positions and lines of the play decided by the number of votes. It is done via mobile phone by those attending the show (a card/QR code is given to them at the beginning)
    .




    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    ※ (Late) Update
    Differently from the 1st 16nin no Principal, the members had now the opportunity to choose which role they would want to challenge in each performance.

    In the 1st act, a quick audition was held for each role, with the members showing their acting skills under specific instructions/circumstances from a "voice from above" (e.g. in the May 4th performance, act as if you were very sick and weak, for the Hisako role).

    The audience, then, had to vote for each role (only one member per role, for a total of 10 main roles). If there was only candidate for a role (since they couldn't previously know which member had chosen which role), that member already had the luck to secure her role in the 2nd act.

    If there was no candidacy for a role, the audience could choose any member (out of those they hadn't chosen yet) who they thought she would fit the best for it. In this case, the member with most votes and that hadn't been chosen for any of the other main roles would have the chance to perform it.

    Among the members defeated in the mini auditions, the 6 with most votes would be chosen for the 'maid' roles.

    Quick description of the roles, thanks to rust.
    Quick summary of the story, thanks to rust.

    Table with the final results:

    2nd generations members were also presented during the end of each Tokyo performance, one by one. Two songs were performed in the end of each performance (usually Kimi no Na wa Kibou and Shakiism). The 6th single "Girl's Rule" was also performed for the first time during the Osaka kouen.
    You can see photos of the stage here

    ※ Ichiki Rena, Kashiwa Yukina and Hoshino Minami were absent due to school commitments. Ando Mikumo had announced her graduation; Miyazawa Seira had a leg injury.

    Cool beans.

    Since it's a sequel title, I'm assuming it's going to be like the other stage where they just played out a popular tale and sung previously released songs. Since the stages look to be a annual (or seasonal) thing, I hope they start getting original "stages". I don't want them to use the xxx48 format. I like this format of music + story just fine (actually better even), I just want them to get original material for these events and hopefully stage dvd's and album releases.

    Voting results should still be 'interesting" this time around. We have an established "Top 3" in Nogizaka (Maiyan, Nanamin, Sayuringo) but there's still strong contenders for top spots in Ikuchan, Kazumin, and the rapidly rising Nanase. Sayurin and Ikoma have been in yo-yo mode, and then there's also Manatsu in the mix this time around... how will she fare?

    A lot of information updates here! All info are from the Nelke Planning website. First of, it seems like there will be a change in the voting system!

    Whereas previouslly, the top-voted 16 members will be assiged roles in based on their rank, this time the audiences will have to decided on ONE member for each role! There are a total of sixteen roles, & for each, the audience will have to decide on who they think are most befitting of it. The schedule for each stage performance will be:
    [1st Act]
    「Nogizaka Troupe ~ The Garden in the Maze ~」audition stage.
    33 trouple members will compete for the roles for the theatre drama.

    [Judgment]
    The audiences will serve as judges, & based on the members' performance in the 1st act, will decided for each role one member that is the best for the role. This will be done via cellphone voting.

    [2nd Act]
    With the 16 chosen members, chosen based on the selection of the judges,「Nogizaka Troupe ~ The Garden in the Maze ~」will begin!
    & as for the specific of he roles, the site also have details on it. I have managed rough translation below.

    [Nogizaka Theatre Group ~ The Garden in the Maze ~]
    There exist a small island that can only be reached by small ships from the mainland (Japan).
    On the island, resides a powerful family that achieved prosperity through fishery & tourism, the mysterious Nogi Family (野木家). However, the death of family head, Nogi Juichiro (野木 寿一郎), have caused a string of abnormal happenings & bickering between the family sisters. During this time, the detective-like Aketagawa (明田川 太郎) and young lads Sawamura (沢村 小坊主) enters the story. Presented here is a dazzling women's labyrinth!

    I hope I will not be posting 95% of the posts here like in the last Ngzk stage thread. :sweatdrop:

    [​IMG]
    Anyways, major update here!

    First off the voting system is going to be significantly different this time around! Instead of choosing from among the 27 participating members for each role, this time the members have to choose which role they want to audition for before hand, & showcase why they are most befitting for this role in the first act.

    There are only 27 participating members, because:

    - Hoshino Minami will not be participating due to study.
    - Ichiki Rena will not be participating due to study.
    - Kashiwa Yukina will not be participating due to study.
    - Miyazawa Seira will not be participating due to injury.
    - Ando Mikumo have announced her graduation.


    Regarding 2nd gen members, one will be announced per perf, & the one to be announce at the first perf tmr is announced to be born November 11th, 1999, which will make her the youngest member thus far (unless surpassed by another 2nd gen).
    Here's a mysterious pic provided by Ngzk's official blog:

    Re: [STAGE] Nogizaka46 2nd [16nin no Principal deux] '13/05~

    Here a list of which role each members auditioned for, in bold are the elected ones, underline are maids.
    Hisako - Eto Misa, Hashimoto Nanami, Higuchi Hina
    Husako - Fukagawa Mai, Matsumura Sayuri, Yamato Rina
    Misako - Akimoto Manatsu, Ito Marika, Saito Yuri
    Itsumi - Kawamura Mahiro, Nagashima Seira, Nakada Kana
    Youko - Sakurai Reika, Shiraishi Mai, Hatanaka Seira, Wada Maaya
    Ayame - Nakamoto Himeka, Nishino Nanase
    Sakae - Ikuta Erika
    Seichi - Kawago Hina, Saito Chiharu, Takayama Kazumi
    Sawamura - Ikoma Rina, Ito Nene, Inoue Sayuri, Saito Asuka
    Aketagawa - Nojou Ami, Wakatsuki Yumi

    Members who didn't made it: Higuchi, Yamato, Rottii, Manattan, Yuttan, Kanarin, Seitan, Maaya, Chiharu, Hinapyon, Nene, Ashurin.
    Underlined are members who are dropped despite having above-average popularity. I guess this shows the volatility of the new voting system.

    Upsets & notable results are:
    Misamisa > Nanamin,
    Bebitan > Manattan,
    Seirarin > Kanarin
    Ami > Myumyu/Yumichan,
    Himetan > Naachan,
    & Sayurin > Maimai was not a surprise but was certainly notable as Maimai does have top 5~7 popularity.

    Here's a closer look at what the each members in their roles look like, in the above order from left to right.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Also two new 2nd gen members will be revealed for the next perf! On the left here is someone born January 22nd, 1992, 21 y.o. (making her the oldest of all current members) & on the right is someone born July 17th, 1996, 16 y.o.

    ^Good day miruss87! :)
    Don't worry about asking question at all! If there's anything you don't know, plz do ask away!
    The audition will be held separately for every single stage perf, & there will be a total of 15 perf. So that means 15 vote, & 15 different results. The result posted are only for the 1st perf.

    I'm very happy for Misamisa & Himetan too! <3
    In fact, words are that Misamisa cried when Himetan & Ami was announced to have make it!
    She's such an sweet & empathetic girls, looking out for the unders.. :cry:
    Truly like the leader of the Unders right now..


    Also, some additional info!
    Words are Maiyan, Sayurin & Kazumin were singing during the 2nd act! That means the role Youko, Husako & Seichi have singing component to it! Words also are that Amiami & Ikuchan's role have the most dialogue, that's Aketagawa & Sakae respectively. Lastly, fans are saying the role Youko felt most like the female lead, & that role was played by Maiyan for the 1st perf.

    Youko - Sakurai Reika, Hatanaka Seira, Fukagawa Mai, Wada Maaya
    Ayame - Ito Nene, Shiraishi Mai
    Sakae - Nishino Nanase, Hashimoto Nanami
    Seichi - Saito Chiharu, Takayama Kazumi

    Upsets (imo, less popular beating more popular) are:

    So as promised, all the info I got on 2nd gen!
    How did everything begin? By having the source code of the second gen page dug out, hence these we know the names listed by Noriega but not sure about the Kanji. (Thanks Noriega!)

    So here's one possibility posted by Noriega.
    Hori Miona / 堀未央奈

    Yamazaki Rena / 山崎怜奈

    Younger pic & info: http://www.kt.rim.or.jp/~yuchida/prolog/vol32/rena/


    Sagara Iori / 相楽伊織
    [​IMG]


    & we have a potential former AKBer here, supposingly from the ill-fated 8th gen,
    Nishikawa Nanami / 西川七海 (words are her nick was Nanamin...)
    [​IMG]

    Words were she was let go due to taking purikura pictures with fans, while others allege it was more serious. I don't know myself & reserve judgment. The official blog post on this incident is here, & this seems to be the alleged picture that led to the termination:
    [​IMG]

    Kishikawa have a lot of pictures floating around somehow, prolly due to her higher profile.

    Re: [STAGE] Nogizaka46 2nd [16nin no Principal deux] '13/05~

    Wow...the results are so fair! It's really nice that it's not obvious who will get what role, since it seems as if even the girls don't know who is going for what! Nobody is a given at all!

    This makes things much better since the girls don't have to memorise every role and its a given that popular members will at least get a maid role. Of course this is skewed though, since a popular member competing against 5 girls for a role needs to gain a larger proportion of the votes than a girl competing against one other girl, should they want a maid role after not getting the desired one. This explains why Noujou Ami gets a role everytime methinks.

    I like this! It's a mixture of skills, luck, popularity, psychology and tactics to get a good role! Its even possible for maiyan to not even get a role at all should she and 8of the most popular members go for one role whilst 2 members each go for the 9 other roles. Its the case of probability afterall since the girls who didnt get the other roles can at the most get 49% votes, whilst maiyan not getting it will get around i feel at around 3/9 of the votes factoring in her immense popularity, thus missing out a role. Oh the power of numbers.....

    I think if nogizaka is to have an election anytime soon it should be similar. Instead of pure votes they should have different contests in different categories for a total of 16 spots. Singing, dancing, beauty, sports, variety and the girls have an option of joining 3 at most without telling others or something. The decisions would be awesome! For example they would hold a popularity contest first and everyone knows maiyan would win...so what happens if maiyan decides not to go for it and aim to win the beauty contest instead? And theres the rule that you must take the position you competed and won first? It's possible that a less popular but notoriously ambitious girl like bebitan can win! So much more exciting with many tv opportunities!

    Warming up to this idea (spoiler cos getting reaaally off topic here:
    suggestions for 16 positions with incentives for each role:

    1. Popularity- this held first, gets to be centre,
    2. Singing - gets a solo line in election song
    3. Dancing - gets a small dance break in election song
    4. Beauty/fashion - gets a photobook/ magazine solo
    5. Sports - join some sports related tv thing
    6. Variety/comedy - regular variety role in a show
    7. Intelligence - gets to release a book
    8. Most popular member as voted for by members - gets an ep of nogidokke just on them
    9. Most improved - ep of nogidokke for them showcasing their change
    10. Gravure contest - .......obvious
    11. Acting - tv role contest
    12. All rounder - singing, dancing and acting - prominent position in song, maybe even top two shared position
    13. Guts contest - girls show spunk somehow in any way they want, extreme sports, disgusting food etc, maybe variety role?
    14. Most anticipated breakthrough ( closed to girls who were in latest 3 senbatsu) - gets interview etc.,
    15. little sister contest - tv role and puts at least 1 youngster in
    16. Luck - rock paper scissors- absolute wildcard

    Ppl will get much less disillusioned like this but it takes a lot more effort and resources. So much more long term potential though than a full on popularity contest
