      I guess Kodama Haruka or Miyawaki Sakura are going to win this... since it is rigged, and they want to push them. :P But higher bets on Sakura, since she is going to be the next ace.

    2. If Janken tournament is really manipulated, HKT48 members may be the winner, because none of HKT48 member wins Janken.

      Or maybe surprise will happen NGT48 members :)

    4. I find the idea that the Janken Tournament is rigged kind of hard to swallow... there are too many variables that if changed by a tiny bit, will modify the whole result.

      There is too much trouble, both if it goes wrong (somebody forgetting what they should put, a 3rd/4th rower or kenkyuusei with "nothing to lose" going wild), or if it goes right (the whole thing would be a PAIN to coordinate on the fly, too many people, so little time).

      Paraphrasing Hanlon's razor, "Never attribute to malice what can be explained by laziness".

      People see conspiracy theories everywhere.

      Can they just make it when a person can decide whether to have a solo debut or a center single.

      Last year winner, Watanabe Miyuki, was not really successful with her debut single. Only ranked 5th or 4th in Oricon and selling around 50k. I think it is much preferable and profitable to release regular 16 members-single. Solo debut will not have much of impact unless the single is outstandingly good (Utada Hikaru-tier song)

      Solo singer always sell around 50k at max in the last years... just look at Mayu :I and it's still quite good.

    8. What ... rigged?... and next you're going to tell me that Wrestling is fake!

      @Denny Sinnoh: well janken is not rigged at all but wrestling that's another story and it's totally fake, it's drama
