    Jacked Deyan's list as it's exactly what I would have written except for switching 1 with 2 and changing the bottom 3 ranks.

    8) The emergence of those epic and now beat-to-death words "Doryoku wa kanarazu mukuwareru"
    9) Matsubara Natsumi being the only one sitting alone from Team A in 2012
    10) Mitsumune Kaoru's breakdown

    Stage48 Countdown: Episode 1 (Best Souesnkyo Moments)
    Welcome to the very first episode of Stage48 Countdown. Where the members of stage48 vote on topics that involve the AKB48Groups. The First list is Best Souesnkyo Moments.

    First off we have honorable mentions that were just shy of making the countdown.
    Takamina's Speech in 2012 (32 Pts)
    Sakura's Ranking and Speech in 2014 (31 Pts)
    Ikoma's Reaction to being ranked in 2014 (28 Pts)
    Churi's plead for an original Team KII stage in 2011 (24 Pts)
    Ricchan's Speech in 2014 (Couple Weeks after the Iwate Indicent) (24 Pts)

    Now let's get on with the countdown shall we.

    10. Yuihan's Reactions (35 Pts)
    Starting off our countdown is reaction from Yuihan. From 2011 to just this year. Some of her reactions are pretty out there as she was promoted in October 2010 and became a HUGE star. 2011 was her year. Anyways
    2011: 19th Ranked
    [​IMG]

    2012: 15th

    2013: 13th
    [​IMG]

    2014: 13th
    [​IMG]
    Just imagine if she ended up winning lol. I will leave that reaction to you guys :).

    9. Amina's rank in 2009, 2010, 2011 (47 Pts)
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Coming in at the #9 spot was a girl that was never pushed as a senbatsu member. But was voted into senbatsu by the people not once, not twice, but three times. Management really dropped the ball on her.

    Sato Amina was apart of the 4th generation (featured girls like Mocchi, Fujie, and Oya). Also was a huge fan of AKB48 and would even regularly line up with other fans at theater shows. Joined AKB48 as a member in May of 2007 and was promoted to Team A on April 15, 2008. A Girl that was never pushed as a regular senbatsu member. She was able to get a fan following and in 2009. She became the big surprised of the election as she ranked 8th. She out ranked girls like Yukirin, Sae, Rie, Yukari, Miichan, and the heavily pushed Jurina. Even after that, she wasn't in River senbatsu (she was in the undergirls) or the next songs. What did they do (her fans), 18th in 2010. She was able to stay in senbatsu and what did management do? Nothing, as she was not in the Beginner Senbatsu as she only made the Diva song on the beginner track. But that didn't stop them as she was able to keep her spot in 2011 in as she was 18th again and was in Flying Get.

    Doesn't really make any sense to have a girl that was pretty popular not in your senbatsu lineup, even when she was 8th in 2009. Management really dropped the ball with Amina, but at least she got to center a song before she graduated.

    8. Mayuyu Wins in 2014 (61 Pts)
    Coming in the #8 spot is the crowning moment of a girl who was pushed as a next generation center and it all came true at this event. Going into this, Everybody was expecting the crown to stay with Sasshi as people were giving little to no shot for her to lose it. The Prelims stood by that prediction as Sasshi had a commanding lead over Mayuyu which even made Mayuyu stand there in awe. But the Oshis of Mayuyu didn't give up. They wanted to give Mayuyu the dream she had always wanted. When we got to the top 2 and after the votes and the 3 letters came from the announcer, H-K-T48. Mission Accomplished. The Result once again made everybody's jaws drop as Mayuyu realized her dream, and AKB was back on top.

    It proved that she was able to make her seniors proud and that the torch had now been passed from Yuko to Mayuyu.

    7. Mariko's Motivating Speech in 2012 (64 Pts)
    [​IMG]
    At #7 is a two parter featuring the loveable big sis troll named Shinoda MARIKO! I wanted to put this her first even though it was a tie. First one is her speech in 2012 which was pretty motivating if you ask me.

    Some people might say "Give over your seat to junior members."
    But I think members who can't forge their own path unless someone hand over positions to them will never win others
    I think a lot of you (talking about her juniors) are feeling that injustice to oneself. (bitterness)
    But turn that into power to move forward, and challenge us, your seniors with that power. Challenge us with determination to crush us.

    Mariko may be a troll, but her serious words are really straight to the point and very encouraging. It's what we expect from somebody as Mature as Mariko.

    6. Mariko's Graduation Announcement (64 Pts)
    [​IMG]
    Fast forward to a year later and we get this big moment as it was the very first graduation announcement. Mariko pretty much had that look that "It was time". Here is here speech btw.
    "First of all, thank you for so much support. Last year I said "please come with the intention to crush (us senpai)", after that a year passed where I could feel that a lot of kouhai are doing their best in order to live up to these expectations. Watching today('s event), I also thought that so many kouhai are doing their best. I was really happy and I realized that the 48 group can still go further up. Seeing my kouhai, my energetic kouhai, I decided to make one decision. I, Shinoda Mariko, will graduate from AKB48. I am not saying I was really crushed or so, but to see the energetic and powerful backs of my kouhai I became so happy. I have nothing to regret concerning AKB48. Graduation...("Mariko" calls from the audience) Thank you. My kouhai are trying to make one step forward, so I decided to step one step forward too. I thought that I want to have my graduation in my hometown, so, though it's sudden, please let me graduate during next month's Fukuoka Dome concert. I think the AKB48 group can still aim further up. I'd be glad if I could still watch over the members even after I graduated. That I could continue my life in AKB48 these past 8 years is because my fans who supported me were there. To me all fans who supported me are my treasure. Thank you.

    That speech proved that she was happy with what the juniors have done over the past year and that she felt they were ready to take over the group. Her face even when she was announced as #5 was a face of "I'm ready and it's time" The only thing that came surprising from it was the timing of it.

    5. Yuko's Win in 2010 (72 Pts)
    [​IMG]
    Coming at the halfway point of our countdown is a moment that showed somebody wasn't as invincible as we thought.
    Coming off of the 2009 General Election. Acchan was still unstoppable and it looked like it was going to be like that at the 2nd annual General Election. The Prelims showed that Acchan was still leading (But not by much). After Mariko Shinoda was announced at #3. We all waited to see who was #2. Could that loveable little dork named Yuko Oshima beat Atsuko Maeda? You bet ur butt she did. The Final Tally was

    Yuko Oshima: 31,448
    Atsuko Maeda: 30,851

    Yuko beats Acchan by 597 votes. Still to this day the closet margin ever (and I think always will be) Before Sasshi and Mayuyu shocked the world. Yuko was the original member to shock everybody at the Senbatsu Souenskyo.
    4. Kojiharu's Fake Graduation Announcement in 2014 (86 Pts)
    [​IMG]
    #4 is quite possibly one of the funniest moments ever at this event. Kojiharu has been talked about as one of the next people to graduate from AKB48. 2014 was the rumored year that it would happen. Would we have the 2nd straight year that someone announces their graduation? ....no. As you saw, Kojiharu pulled a Mariko and trolled the 50,000+ at the stadium, the millions watching at home, and the people watching via stream. What would end up as one of the most hilarious things to ever happen at a senbatsu souenskyo and it made us love Kojiharu even more. The reason why was because she wanted to wait till the smiles were back on AKB48 and the fans (as it was still a couple of weeks after the Iwate Indicent) and didn't want to bring something like this here. I applaud Kojiharu for doing that since it shows how unselfish she is and that she does truly care about AKB48.

    btw, I think she will announce her graduation when she is good and ready too.

    3. Miku Tanabe Ranking (and reaction) (88 Pts)
    [​IMG]
    At #3 is one of the most awesome moments of the Senbatsu Souenskyo. It shows that you should never EVER give up and that before you graduate from AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, HKT48. You can have a chance to be ranked. That's excatly what happen in 2014 for Miku Tanabe as she was FINALLY able to be ranked at the 71st spot in the Senbatsu Souesnkyo. Even she didn't think she would be ranked as she thought this was a joke. Nope, it's was real as it can get. Miku Tanabe came in with the original Team B (with girls like Mayuyu, Yukirin, Lovetan, Harugon, Haachan) and applied for the election for the first 5 years. Each year it was the same thing. Unranked, Unranked, Unranked, Unranked, and Unranked. But luck finally came to Tanamin as when #71 was called, it was her and the streak was over. I think other girls who have never been ranked should look at this and know. Your chance will come.

    2. Acchan's 2011 Speech (112 Pts)
    [​IMG]
    At the #2 spot is what people have said is the greatest speech in the history of the Senbatsu Souenskyo. After the 2010 Souenskyo, in which Acchan did not win. Acchan Oshis were looking to get her back to the top. The battle between her and Yuko became a dead heat as it was shown that these two were going to be the 22nd Single center. Once Yuko name was announced. Acchan was named the 22nd Single Center, and the first person to win the Election twice (first winning in 2009). While Acchan was in tears (happy years of course) and at times looking like she was hyperventilating , she utter what is now know as the best phrase ever said at this event.
    "Even if you hate me, Please Don't hate AKB48".

    Wow! That there proved why she was the ace of the group and a very unselfish person.

    and here we are. The #1 Best Souesnkyo Moment. It is. (*Drum Roll*)

    1. Sasshi's Win in 2013 (152 Pts)

    Coming in at #1 was quite possibly the most shocking moment in the history of the Senbatsu Souenskyo. Going into it. Did you really think Sasshi would have a shot at winning? The girl that was never pushed as center, The Girl that had a scandal in 2012 and was expected to fall in the rankings, the girl that had to deal with powerhouses like Yuko and Mayuyu? That girl? Of course not. The only people that had her support was her Oshis. Sasshi Oshis that wanted to shock everybody and pull off the impossible and get her to #1 even after her scandal last year. It was so far so good after the prelims. When the announcement of #2 came. Everybody's jaws were on the floor when it was Oshima Yuko and Sasshi Oshis celebrating that they were able to do what NOBODY thought could be done. Vote Sasshi to #1. The beginning of the saying "Anything can happen" at an election.

    Hope you enjoyed this list. Sasshi's win in 2013 was in alot of top 5s which made it #1 by a pretty good margin.

    ------------------------
    In a couple of hours will start the voting on Episode 2: Best Janken Costumes. As Janken is next week.

    Just a comment...

    From what she wrote in her book, it seems some HKT fans, knowing other girls might have a low chance at ranking, voted for her as a way of thanking her for bringing up HKT. So she had more support than just her oshis. :D

    BTW, shouldn't this be in the first post? In a spoiler or something? lol
