The 2nd Sashihara Administration Just Begins : The First AKB48 Concert Report After Sousenkyo 2015

A concert held as an after party, the day after the elections (The complete final results are here). A solo song by the winner, Rino Sashihara, “Soredemo Suki dayo” opened the show. The following three opening songs were performed by the newly elected 16 members, along with Sashihara, and the fourth song was performed by those ranked in the top 80th places. The new AKB48 group has begun.


Next, each AKB48 team and their sister groups performed numbers, with world travel as the theme. Team A performed “Matenrou no Kyori” in cabin attendant costumes, Team K exhibited intense dance routines on drum beats by Tomu Muto in “Area K,” SKE48 performed “Tsuyoki Mono yo” in deep red costumes, mixed with tango performance by Jurina Matsui and Rena Matsui, and NMB48 started with a guitar solo by Miyuki Watanabe into “Punkish.” The individualities of the teams and the groups collided.

In the middle of the concert, the title song from the new single, “Bokutachi wa Tatakawanai,” and “Summer side” were sang. In “Bare Bare Bushi,” the members appeared in yukata, and livened the atmosphere like a festival, befitting the title of this concert.




To grant the request of Sashihara, the 14 members of HKT48, who made the rankings in the elections, lifted her up in the air to commemorate her win. Unfortunately, it was completely disorganized. Even Sashihara herself, who was praising her members, just the day before, as “very, very important treasure,” severely criticized them as “very, very important junk.”


The first encore number was Sahihara’s solo, “Anataga itekuretakara.” After passionately singing the song, alone, in the center of the stage, she gave a renewed thanks to her fans that, “I was able to claim number one because of you. Please continue to support me.”


AKB48 has taken another new step. Is AKB48, something to “protect,” or something to “destroy”? Let’s keep an eye on them, for the rest of the year.
