Jan-Ken-Pon has spoken: Uchida Mayumi is literally the luckiest girl in AKB48.

That’s right, unpopular New Team K member Uchida Mayumi won the center position for AKB’s upcoming 19th single, to be released December 8th.  Senbatsu, decided by chance, are listed below.  Bolded names indicate media senbatsu.

01. Uchida Mayumi
02. Ishida Haruka
03. Kojima Haruna
04. Nakagawa Haruka
05. Maeda Ami
06. Sato Sumire
07. Sato Natsuki
08. Takajo Aki
09. Nakatsuka Tomomi
10. Kuramochi Asuka
11. Kobayashi Kana

12. Tanabe Miku
13. Kasai Tomomi
14. Matsui Sakiko
15. Maeda Atsuko
16. Chikano Rina

For half of the girls, this is the first senbatsu they’ve been in.  Only four here are consistently selected for singles.

Natsuki is in senbatsu.  At ‘Lucky Seven,’ she is within media senbatsu.  Compare that to the last time she was in an official senbatsu: ‘Keitbetsu Shiteita Aijou,’ which was three years and eight months before the 19th single’s street date.

Also decided in the tournament were the members of the single’s Under Girls and Theater Girls.

  1. […] and it spent almost an hour following the competition and analyzing each players Junken skills (Uchida Mayumi won BTW). The coverage was just ridiculous but at the same time you just have to admire the minds […]
