I completely agree with you. Don't you believe -along with all you other fans out there- that Mariko-sama is like the totally awesome big sister of the group?

She is definitely the big sister, literally and figuratively.

Awesome~!! Heh, i remember that speech! She was practically challenging the kenkyusei xD but she is right, you can't expect them to just give up their seats.

:iconsumo0172:
Sumo0172 Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
exactly that why she is so awesome. i was telling someone else that AKB48 isn't just another idol or J-pop group. it is something greater because of where it came from and with the right amount of effort where it could go. and Mariko's speech reminded the kenkyusei and everyone listening of that.

Uh huh. I also really love her story on how she got into akb. She got in because fans saw how dedicated she was to akb even though she was only a worker of the akb cafe. Heh, she calls herself a part of the 1.5 generation because of that xD

You're welcome. And what do you mean by ranked higher?

:iconsumo0172:
Sumo0172 Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
because there are so many AKB48 members(currently 67 i believe, plus there is SKE48, NMB48, HKT48, JKT48) an election is held(Senbatsu) to select headliner members. it's basically a popularity contest since these members are chosen by the fans but since they are idols it works. the Senbatsu members can be considered like the starting line up on a sports team they lead in songs and videos, they represent the group as a whole, get endorsements and get opportunities outside of AKB among other illustrious things. Mariko Shinoda ranked 5th, she is a very influential and popular member and i just think she should have ranked higher
