I do love this lineup though, it is a good balance of AKB and its sister groups as well as with the old gen and new gen... No problems with anyone included cause theyre all members i like, but this is basically confirmation that Kitarie is no longer an automatic senbatsu member :(

Haha, it was true huh, Lovetan somehow made it back into Senbatsu... HKT may be the key to reviving your popularity huh, Myao should consider this lol....

But with a KojiHaru center you gotta sense the inevitable graduation announcement in the near future

How come KojiHaru's nickname is Michelle while I heard from her song she said (I'm Princess) which I definitely have not heard wrong.. I believe this is a typo error..

In any case, congrats to her for finally having her 1st center position after 32 singles..

@candidmoments they have been in the group for 8 yrs. that's already long enough time. If they can stand on their own then let them go. It's great they stayed in the group for such a long time anyway.

With NyanNyan at center, no one is complaining about it lol

I'm loving the lineup and it's about time that akip gives the main vocal of almost all the akb songs the center spot.

Main vocals of almost all AKB's songs have 3 people, Nyan2x is one of them.

NyanNyan as Center!

Decent lineup so it's probably the lower Senbatsu ranking from the Janken event.

Congratulations, Harunyan <3

Maybe management don't want to pick Sakura, Haruppi, Mio, or Meru because it might put more tension between the 1st and 2nd? Lovet
