Akarin 2nd Idol make bible sold 2,634 copies and ranked 9th place on Oricon (total : 20,117)
Congrats to Akarin selling over 20k !!!!
Sayanee and Akarin have appeared with comedian Yuriyan Retriever in a special song for TownWork, a popular website and app for finding part-time or casual work. Cute.
Fashion rankings are consistently above respective photobook places: 3rd and 7th; in next weeks we might have to check them instead, as 9th place in photobooks has been secured with mere 5 copies over contender on 10th, but with a loss of 15 to 8th... Who knows how far away was 11th.
I realize it's probably too early to be discussing this, but on another thread, people are predicting the upcoming Sousenkyo rankings. Akarin is listed on almost everyone's top 16 with the majority of predictors taking our girl to come in anywhere from 11 to 14. I'm thinking she may very well break into the top ten taking 9th or 10th. Anybody agree or disagree?
I am forecasting top 10. She has tremendous reach and with Sayanee not in the picture.....
10th really? For some reason I didn't really think she would go behind the 12th mark for awhile. The 16th place can be tricky and you really need the fans to not slack to stay in senbatsu (I mean even Dasu dropped out of senbatsu once).
If anything, she has better reach, so not only she would advance automatically thanks to graduations and drop-outs, but also very likely beat some of those above her.
I definitely don't doubt it, but I just feel based on many other members that have been in her place and those in higher senbatsu ranks need a strong fanbase to really rank up so high. I have hope she will crack the top 10, but there's some hot contenders she's gotta fight off this year for those spots. I just hope her fans don't slack off thinking those youtube views will suffice for a vote. She's had the best year possible for her idol-career after last SSK. Just as any idol has a chance to rank high, any idol has a chance to drop. Komiharu dropped hard, Mion dropped, Dasu, Miichan, Rie, Aki, etc...all senbatsu members (minus Komi) before; yea some went back into senbatsu, but it shows it's possible.
Probably why many are so curious to know what Ogiyuka's rank will be this year. Was it a fluke? One-time thing? Or will she rank higher. It's such a mystery when a girl ranks so high during an election. Albiet, I still believe she will make senbatsu~
She's really a chick magnet. The comment box is like 90% Akarin right now LOL
Probably a 100K of the views are from her girl fans.
I was looking at the song and wanted to see fans reactions and the majority were just for Akarin, or at least the top comments are
Woah that's incredible! Her youtube army grows more powerful every day! And they're also commenting a lot about NMB in general too! And the comments aren't wrong either - Akarin looks stunning and it's awesome to see her in senbatsu, and NMB in general just slays this PV.

"Hi everyone! I'm Akari Yoshida, also known as Akarin. First, I would like to thank all those who voted for me at the last General Election - thank you! The past year, to be selected for Senbatsu, 16th place, is thanks to your support. News about the General Election, and an increase in my solo activities, thankfully, I've had a very fulfilling year. Among that, I also saw many members graduate, and it made me think about moving forward to my next step, and I thought about graduation. However, all that I am now, is all thanks for NMB48, and my Youtube activities, modelling activities, is on the basis of my idol activities. Even if I graduate now, I don't have the confidence to do better than what I do now, so for me to continue, I need to contribute more to the group, and to be able to lead. Not half-heartedly, but with those feelings, my aim for this Election is Kami 7. I think it's a high goal, but I believe if it's with everyone's support, there will again be a women's power revolution! I definitely want to make this an unregrettable Election, so I ask for your support until the end! Thank you."
Women's power revolution? is Akarin gonna be the new feminist icon in the 48-group lol.
I think its a reference to her opening line of her Youtube videos "...joshi ryoku doga staarto-desu..."
Probably not feminist in the Western way of thought
Maybe it's more like "girl power" or "feminine power", or something like that
Let a guy dream lol. We haven't had a feminist icon for awhile lol.
I promised myself that I wouldn't freak out if she ranked lower than I expected in the prelims, but 42nd is lower than I had hoped. But I am not going to fret. There are still two weeks of voting to go. Just surprised and a little disappointed.
I wouldn't worry too much I saw a lot of people tweet with the akarin hashtag the boxes and boxes of CD's they bought
Don't worry, she has the support of the gravure industry.
See my post in Nacchan's (not Naachan's) thread and the linked article.
"Mr. Hirajima revealed what he encountered at the exhibition of clothes with Mr. Yoshida the other day and said, "I am even more cute and it is popular as YouTuber (YouTube bar), so I hope that the vote from a young girl will bear fruit "Smiling."
