My Pure·Intrigue – NMB48 in the 1st Day Preliminary Results

It’s been only a day since AKB48’s 26th single Manatsu no sounds good! was released and on its first day, the single has sold 1,170,554 copies. And with those copies come the voting tickets to determine the senbatsu for the 27th single. The preliminary results from the 1st day have been released. While some results, such as Oshima Yuko (Yuko) and Kashiwagi Yuki (Yukirin) being 1st and 2nd respectively, were pretty much expected, there were a few surprises. And among the preliminary Top 64 results, we have five NMB48 members making the list!

18. Yamamoto Sayaka (3,218 votes)
19. Watanabe Miyuki (2,976 votes)
31. Ogasawara Mayu (1,746 votes)
42. Yamada Nana (1,136 votes)
55. Fukumoto Aina (816 votes)

If this ranking were to hold (which it won’t because there are plenty of votes still out there), NMB48 would have three Undergirls (positions #17-32) in Yamamoto Sayaka (Sayanee), Watanabe Miyuki (Milky), and Ogasawara Mayu (Maachun). Yamada Nana (Nana) would be a Next Girl (#33-48) and Fukumoto Aina (Ai-nyan) would be a Future Girl (#49-64).

Sayanee and Milky seem certain to make the Top 64, but it’s nice to see five NMB members in position to hear their names announced during the election. I’m pleasantly surprised to Maachun up so high to #31 so early. If she can maintain her Undergirls position, I will be completely thrilled. The only disappointing thing about the results is that there are no Team M members or NMB KKS in the list so far. I expect Jo Eriko (Jo) to make a push towards making Future Girls.

It’s officially election time and I’m anxious but excited. I have yet to receive my singles, so I have not cast my votes in the election yet. Anyways, hoping for favorable results for NMB and all of my favorite girls. Have fun voting for your favorites, people!
