Tuesday night Shinoda Mariko finally got her chance to shine, by walking away with the center position at AKB48’s second Senbatsu Janken Taikai. Shinoda will take the center position for AKB48`s 24th single, due out on December 7.

The top 16 making up the singles Senbatsu are the following in order of Finish.

   1. Shinoda Mariko
   2. Fujie Reina
   3. Minegishi Minami
   4. Kobayashi Marina (research student)
   5. Akimoto Sayaka
   6. Oya Shizuka
   7. Maeda Ami
   8. Sato Sumire (Former Morning Musume audition hopeful)
   9. Hikawa Ayame (NMB48)
10. Umeda Ayaka
11. Kasai Tomomi
12. Kuwabara Mizuki (SKE48)

I don`t know how most AKB fans feel about this tournament format, I think it`s actually a good thing to have. AKB`s gimmicks may seem odd from the outside, however they work and are making them stand out above other groups.

Idol genre should be fun, be it Janken or groups calling out other groups for a sales challenge. The more out of the box the better, I say.
