    Ok but the election it's not one times in a year.

    For example Jurina win the last election but she's not the center of the Teacher teacher single

    The Winner is center for Just that Senbatsu's song. here is the list of winners and the song they were center for.
    http://stage48.net/wiki/index.php/Senbatsu_Election

    this years winners--- notice this is the 53rd single but only the 10th election.

    important thing to remember about voting Its official members of the specific fan clubs. And usually a vote is included in the cd preceding the election. I have seen stories of fans buying 4k cd's just to vote for their girl.

    Pd 48 has many of the top 16 in it darn near half.
    1,3,7, 9, 10,12,16 these i can find i think there are more :) also some who were top 16 last year but dropped.

    my bet is all these kids will make the re evaluation to team A. They are fighters and know how to sell them selves.

    the election is once a year and only applies to one single. Jurina will be the center for the next single.

    so i don't understand if teacher teacher was a single by akb48 and was released after the election why jurina was not the center and will be the center only of the next singles

    plus the members of akb48 who are in produce48 promoted at the same time in Japan ? how the group do without two of their most popular member during the promotion ?

    what's the ace ?

    I will try for a few of those.
    the members are flying back and forth to Japan to promote. There are likely set filming days that they Have to be there for. Actually it is a hardship on them because they will miss out on training.

    Excellent!

    Totally understandable. AKB is over 13 years old now. It's like jumping into a TV drama.
    So many different things going on, it's impossible to know where to start.

    So let's start with this. You said you've been into them recently? How did that happen?
    Did you watch a music video or some random clip on YouTube?

    Ok, so Keyakizaka46 is a sister group to Nogizaka46. You can consider them related because they
    both carry the 46 moniker. Nogizaka46 was created as an "official" rival to AKB48.

    As opposed to the other groups with the 48 label who are sister groups to AKB.

    Nogizaka46 is more geared towards female fans. You see them a lot in fashion magazines and they
    don't really do bikini photos. I just got into Keyakizaka so I'm not ultra familiar, but I'd assume they
    kinda follow the same formula. All these groups have kinda follow their management formula but with
    tweeks.

    It seems like Keyakizaka's music and choreography has a bit more of an edge to it. And the
    members kinda have a boyish feel with their style and hair. I'm not 100% sure, that's just the impression
    I've gotten from what I've seen. I have a bunch of friends who really are into Keyaki, so I can ask them
    for clarification.

    The 46 groups don't participate in the AKB General Election. There have been members that were
    doing like an exchange program where they were concurrently in a 48 Group temporarily, and I think
    during that time they participated. But the General Election or "Sousenkyo" as it's called in Japanese
    is just an event they do once a year around May.

    The person who gets the most votes will be the center for the next single and so on and so forth
    down the rankings. So like #2 with get the second spot all the way down to #16.

    These Top 16 Girls will be featured in the immediate next single and referred to as Senbatsu Members.

    Then there are more classifications for example the next 16 girls after that are called The Undergirls. They'll get like a coupling track and their own music video but won't be featured on commercials or TV programs.

    I'm good to keep going but usually I find it's best to keep going by
    just answer questions that you might have.

    Yeah, unfortunately the only AKB stuff that is American iTunes is the song from
    Wreck It Ralph.

    You want me to send it to you?

    If you don't mind.

    I have to download it on my iPhone because that's where I stored all my music nowadays.
