Seriously only 3 HKT members, these girls have way more personality and entertainment value than many of the new gen AKB, this type of event they would shine in so why only limit them

if only 3 members, then i hope variety squad makes it... Murashige, Chiyori, and Shinamon

Janken tournaments are always fun! It'dbe interesting to see Kojiharu win, or Maeda Ami. One of the girls who have gotten far in multiple tournaments.

Hope there will be live streaming this time as well
Wish more members from HKT48 can participate though
There're only 3 of them while 8 from each SKE48 and NMB48. Seems unfair to me :(

there are more members in both SKE and NMB . . . that's why they get more slots, it gives the girls a better chance at making it into the Janken tournament

It seems the management aren't going to change the janken event. Well I have hope that they'll change it to some other game. But it's fine as long as it's fair way to win the center position
