Yuko Oshima Claims #1 in the AKB48 Senbatsu Election

In a surprising twist of events, Yuko Oshima took first place in the Senbatsu election gaining more votes than Atsuko Maeda. Based on the early and mid results, Atsuko was expected to claim #1 again this year but somehow, Yuko was able to grab the #1 spot.

For those of you who don’t know, the Senbatsu Election is a poll in which the fans gets to vote for their favourite member to appear in AKB48’s next Single / PV. In this year’s election, only the top 21 members will be featured on their upcoming single which is to be released on August 18. For the members ranked between #22 – #40, they’ll be the Undergirls doing the B-Side track for the 17th Single.

When I was keeping track of the election, I honestly didn’t think Yuko could take 1st place away from Atsuko. It just seemed impossible to do but when I woke up and saw the results, I was jumping out of my seat. Yuko’s my favourite member so of course I’d be happy but what makes this so awesome is that Yuko was able to dethrone Atsuko. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not an Acchan hater. In fact, she’s my 3rd favourite AKB48 member. It’ just that Yuko taking 1st was totally unexpected for me.
