    I would love if this was the results of the real sousenkyo honestly ! I'm really glad to see that the "Paruru hate trend" is finally outdated. Yuihan reaching the 3rd place is a big surprise... but a pleasing one !
    Mayu's drop is surprising, I honestly thought her & Takamina were the absolute number ones of the international fandom.
    also glad to see a lot of my fave Nogizaka46 members ranking in... could have been better for some if I had voted though, but I forgot.

    Jurina's low ranking surprised me a lot.

    I'm upset that Paruru is number one, because I'm not a fan, but I understand that she's currently very popular, so it doesn't surprise me too much. However, I'm surprised that Mayuyu is not number two.

    My Annin is sadly low, but I don't think she'll ever get the popularity she deserves.

    Not suprising i think for this year. Maybe Sayuri's scandal its suprising, but fans must support him. And of course my oshi No.1 :1st: hehe [hehe]

    I can totally understand the big number of negative votes for Jurina that greatly affected her ranking here.

    It's very easy to "hate" on Jurina: aki-p's favorite, always in front, poster girl of a sister group member taking away a spot from akb members, etc. I like to think that people dont really hate her but rather see her as an easy target for the negative points (or a scapegoat or something).

    Personally, as her fan, I don't mind her low ranking here. I firmly believe that Jurina is the past, present, and future of AKB, and Aki-P will do everything to make this a reality.

    A little bit shocked when I know that takamina is not the 1st place....
    But, it is normal, as the next center is going to be Paruru (I think?, in the newest single?)

    Jurina was the "Future" of AKB......when it was Just AKB & SKE and no one cared about NMB..... in light of Team 4, HKT and ALL the other girls we've grown to love in SKE & NMB (Besides Jurina) - There are SOOO Many more Choices, flavors, & options that I think a lot of people don't see Jurina as the "Future" but as a Pillar & already existing talent. That New girl from Team 8 that everyone loves - She's the New Jurina (in my Opinion). We've been on this Journey w/ Jurina for like 5 years now - Why do we have to be "Locked in" to her when there are SO MANY other choices (all choices are valid to someone). I personally don't remember signing anything or agreeing to Jurina being the Future of anything - Who & What the Group resembled in 2010-2011 is NOT the AKB we have today.

    I personally don't mind Jurina - She got a classic beauty & she's always energetic there's no RULE that says we're locked into what she's offering. I wish her the best but I think she needs to focus on SKE as it's her backyard - I think the tensions between AKB & SKE fans would only hurt AKB's bottom line if Jurina was suddenly the face (or in control) of BOTH SKE & AKB - there's not really any weird animosity between other Sister Groups & AKB - Just SKE. I don't blame Jurina for this. She's just doing her job. No one hates Jurina - but we don't want to be told "She's the Future- Deal with It" - YOU Didn't say that but I've run into a few people who think that way.

    Actually, well, I honestly buy into the idea that Jurina is Aki-P's favorite and that when he said something in the line of "Jurina's push can finally start now that she's 18" (ok, not verbatim obviously), he really meant it.

    So yes, I do believe she's the future of AKB. Until she's not the unmovable center of AKB (or if they learned their mistake with Maeda, then "semi-permanent center" or main center), that future cannot be considered fulfilled. Maybe I'm wrong, but I like to believe that this will happen.

    Of course non-fans are free to believe otherwise. For all we know, Paruru will still be pushed a lot to be the main center despite being the same age as Mayu. Or maybe Sakura will be the one given that "future".

    AKI-P always has a Fav - Some say Paruru others Jurina.... Jurina won the Janken & her single was the least "interesting" ever ....Yes, it won "Request Hour" but that's because SKE wotas love Jurina - Mot AKB. Whenever you support Jurina, You're really supporting SKE - it's going to be a 'Slippery Slope' - there's going to be MUCH 'splitting of the baby' discussion eventually as AKI-P has created an Idol of 2 worlds - If he makes her AKB's Ace then he USED SKE & their fanbase (the OTHER Girls in SKE) to float Jurina. I think they will feel "used" putting Money in AKB's pocket when all they want is to see SKE become independent (which I support!). While at the same time girls in AKB (and some fans) might get turned off they the top of the Pyramid is BLOCKED by Jurina by design - why bother trying? The elections clearly show she doesn't have the #'s & WOTA's to carry 2 teams like Mayu, Sasshi, & Yuko & Yukirin.

    Jurina should take stock & say "I want to make SKE unstoppable in itself" spend the next few years making it amazing - Why happens to SKE tomorrow if Jurina hurts her leg or gets a throat prob? Who will lead them?? Not Rena....SKE has far bigger issues if it puts all it''s eggs in the Jurina basket when she could easily dump them & become AKB's ACE. AKB fans won't be happy & SKE fans will revolt - it makes NO Financial Sense!!!

    Jurina won the Janken & her single was the least "interesting" ever ....Yes, it won "Request Hour" but that's because SKE wotas love Jurina - Mot AKB.

    It being the least interesting is a subjective statement, so doesn't count. And I don't think it won by Jurina oshis effort alone, I think the fans of other senbatsu members of that single wanted their oshis to be part of the #1 song as well.

    Whenever you support Jurina, You're really supporting SKE - it's going to be a 'Slippery Slope' - there's going to be MUCH 'splitting of the baby' discussion eventually as AKI-P has created an Idol of 2 worlds - If he makes her AKB's Ace then he USED SKE & their fanbase (the OTHER Girls in SKE) to float Jurina.

While at the same time girls in AKB (and some fans) might get turned off they the top of the Pyramid is BLOCKED by Jurina by design - why bother trying?

    Again, we're not even sure AKB fans and/or SKE fans in general feel that way. Is there a way of knowing if the percentages of AKB-only or SKE-only fans are that high? I had the impression that it's more common that people just see them as the 48Group and may have favorites among the groups. Admittedly, no proof to support my impression.

    The elections clearly show she doesn't have the #'s & WOTA's to carry 2 teams like Mayu, Sasshi, & Yuko & Yukirin.

    Sashi got around 50k lead over Mayu when she beat her back in 2013. We all know what happened the next year. I'm not saying Jurina will be #1 next year. But I do think it's too early to say if her wota's strength will still grow or not. She has just turned 18 this year, more opportunities for management to push her if they want to.

    Jurina should take stock & say "I want to make SKE unstoppable in itself" spend the next few years making it amazing - Why happens to SKE tomorrow if Jurina hurts her leg or gets a throat prob? Who will lead them?? Not Rena....SKE has far bigger issues if it puts all it''s eggs in the Jurina basket when she could easily dump them & become AKB's ACE. AKB fans won't be happy & SKE fans will revolt - it makes NO Financial Sense!!!

    Opinions.

    Jurina can still be the face of AKB if management wants to. And at this point, I don't think such a decision won't be the cause of downfall of AKB, nor having Paruru or Sakura as the face. AKB seems to be able to stay relevant at this point regardless of center/ace/face.

    It is "speculation" at the moment but this is a discussion that needs to be had SOONER rather than later. I'm basing my opinions on what I've read about the the supposed TRUE feelings of some die-hard SKE power-wotas. AKB fans might see it all as 1 big group full of sisters - but there are MANY militant SKE fans that want SKE to be more on it's own. I personally don't have a dog in the SKE vs AKB battle. My comments are more trying to understand the "Separatists" Angle - the reason they POWER VOTE for request hour & Senbatsu is in their own terms "Take away stage/screen time from AKB " its a land-grab. There's even some SKE Documentary where I believe some SKE girl says this. It's what fuels them - Jurina will need to pick a side eventually because SKE fans don't want to be a second-class citizen to AKB (so it seems) - NOT All fans feel this way but you're kidding yourself if you think this aggressive "Power Voting" isn't just harmless competition - No one throws money & free time away on friendly fun between Idols. If SKE could snatch ALL Senbatsu spots they would - just to prove a point.

    It's NOT about the face of AKB - it's not a Paruru or Sakura thing either - They should focus on AKB Only girls as the next Pillars - KojiMako, Okada Nana, Yuria, Saho , Komi-Haru (& others) - THESE should be the Next faces of AKB....Mayu, Paruru, Yuki are already "Bigger than AKB" - they can power down a bit. NMN & SKE & HKT build their groups from within - AKB needs to go back to this It's stupid to have Jurina lead AKB because SKE wants something of their own - they want their own "Yuko" (or Acchan) - they don't want to share....why would they.

    The other thing to consider is - Jurina isnt exactly "Otaku friendly" - the way Team 4, Paruru, Sakura, Mayuyu are (were) - Is Jurina a 2chan fav? In the way Rena Matsui was? The way Milky is? Yes, there's an audience for Idols that only value: Looks, Kawaii,sexy appeal, or Loli-ish personality - I don't know how Jurina fares w/ that crowd - It's VERY Dangerous to assume AKB fans will just accept her as something she doesn't 'sell herself as' - Its like Paruru selling herself as Athletic or Sayanee as an Air-Head - You'd never buy into it just based on behavior

    We have time..... but every RH & every election - SKE will grow more impatient & gain more ground.

    Then maybe SKE fans will want to "steal" the center position in AKB as well. Not really sure how strong the force of akb purists are, so maybe it can work.

    I understand why others want akb management to focus on pure akb girls but if management has other plans, then it will go their way.

    As for Jurina's appeal to otakus, well, then maybe she doesn't / can't have that vital part of the market. If that's the case then maybe she is not fit to be akb's face, then again, if management wants it, well, hehe.

    Point is, there's nothing wrong for some fans to think that Jurina will still play a bigger role in akb in the future.
