Fuji TV airs epic promotional trailer for AKB48 6th General Elections

24 May

It has been announced that Fuji TV will be airing AKB48 6th General Elections live on June 7, starting from 5pm. They will air footage of the vote counting, but actual ranking will only be revealed from 6.30pm onwards.
To promote the event, a series of trailers have been released depicting a battle for the top spot between “warlords” from different provinces in Japan – Watanabe Mayu of Tokyo, Yamamoto Sayaka of Osaka, Matsui Jurina of Nagoya and Sashihara Rino of Fukuoka. If you once thought the idea in having sister groups is just to duplicate the success formula of AKB48, then this trailer certainly gives whole new meaning and excitement to this mega franchise. Watch the trailers below for yourself below!

Long Version(with Matsui Rena)

In addition, FujiTV also announced that they will be broadcasting Oshima Yuko’s graduation performance 2 days later on 9 June.
