    Intro

    AKB48: Sakura Souls, Senbatsu Tournament is a fan-made event (by me of course). This idea came to me due to the upcoming 4th senbatsu election. Thought it'd be fun to create AKB48 members in the game Soul Calibur V and put them in a tournament to see who comes out as center. :p

    All fights are CPU vs. CPU in very hard difficulty. I will not cheat by manually letting my oshimen Sashihara Rino win. So all is fair. Of course, if Sashihara ended up winning .. then I guess you guys can suspect that I cheated. :XD:

    The following is the lineup for the tournament. And I will be adding fight videos on a daily basis (First up will be the fights for BLOCK A). Enjoy! [hehe]

    So that's what you've been doing with the costume suggestions.

    this is awesome! thanks for your hard work!

    okay about the matches.


    -
    - wow the minarun v. haruu match was a cracker, but happy haruu got through in the end
    - churi had a great start but then she self destructed and jumped out of the damn ring?? what's wrong with her?
    - wow sayaka looking ace here and so far looks like a real contender for the title
    - SHOCKER INCOMING! ranran surprising one of the favorites Yuko. She was really good and no one should take her lightly

    Oh, yic, this is absolutely legendary!

    Great job on the costumes and music [clap]

    Thoughts on the battles:
    1. Oh my, the battle for Team 4 captaincy [hehe]
    So happy with the outcome!

    2. Takamina's wings!

    3. Don't recognise Sayaka's costume... and oh, poor Sae-chan.

    4. Wow, Ranran really beat the shit out of Yuko. I knew she was small feisty thing but that was really something. Yuko almost got one back on her, but Suzuran really gave it her all, just like on stage and with golf. She should have had a golf club as a weapon! So sad for Yuko though, dropping from 2nd to 1st to 2nd, to last place already :cry:

    Looking forward to the next batch!

    Good job Yic!

    I heard Amina lost because of her diet. It makes her a bit weaker than normal.
    I'm pretty sure Mariko won that battle though so no problem there.

    On Amina, that is probably true. She's been dieting because she's been giving up food for the rest of the phants :p
    I must've not watched the whole of the Mariko vs mini=Mariko fight >.<

    * yes Wasamin looked great and Non wasn't really a match for her
    * wow the battle of the watanabe's. Mayuyu lost focus and warukkii seized the opportunity and made easy work of mayuyu. pretty bad showing for mayu to be honest
    * O what a surprise sasshi won. [wonder]
    * Justice was served here. Was a pretty weird match with Yukirin winning the first leg in perfect style but loss of concentration gave Rena the momentum. Yukirin woke up just in time though to finish her off.


    Ohw shit tomorrow.

    Paruru v. Haruppi > personally a tough one cause I'm a big fan of both but I expect Paruru to win
    Yamamoto Sayaka vs. Jo Eriko > Do I look like I give a fuck?
    Matsui Jurina vs. Yokoyama Yui > Go Yui but I expect the more experienced Jurina to go through
    Maeda Atsuko vs. Kato Rena > can the old champion still do it amidst all the retirement rumors? I think so but Renacchi will be a tough nut to crack


    I expect the girl in blue to go through to the next round

    HOLY SHIT, the Jurina v. Yui fight was incredible. After Jurina came back strongly after having no chance in the first battle I thought poor Yui was done for. But she showed she had a heart of steel to come back from behind in the 4th and deciding 5th leg. Her move that finished the fight was incredible. GO YUI.

    Haruppi just hasn't got the stamina to go up against someone like Paruru yet, who showed her potential today.

    Acchan showed she still has it after a sluggish start but she's known to be able to grow into a tournament.

    Uh and Jo apparently beat Sayanee [nod]
