AKB48 Senbatsu Janken Tournament

Senbatsu Janken Tournament
For the 19th single AKB48 has rented out the Nippon Budokan Arena on September 21 for a Janken Tournament. 52 members of AKB48 [48 + 4 kenkyuusei] will face off in a bracket draw tournament with the top 16 winning the Senbatsu placements.

With AKB48 adding sister units across Japan , renting out a major arena to play Janken ,major sponsorship deals control of the television airways and showing that they are a franchise and not an idol group ,you have to think it`s only a matter of time before an AKB48 Amusement Park is announced .

The loosers will be part of the Undergirls and Theater Girls .A "Janken-selection official guide book" will be published on Aug 31
