Figured if I was going to wake up about 4AM to watch the live stream of this I might as well make the most of it and do a almost real time blog about it. Of course since I am mainly a NMB48-only fan it will be those girls that I will be updating with. If any of the AKB48 members rank that I know who they are I will report them as well probably. So that would most likely just be the top girls as it is difficult not to know who they are.
If you're interested in this then watch this space as I update once everything gets started in a few minutes.
For those who want to watch live as well here is the link to the youtube feed.
And it begins!
NMB48 was just on performing their latest single song, Nagiichi. I have to say it's pretty impressive when they get the whole group, both teams and all the KKS together on stage performing.
The English dubbing is annoying. Maybe if the voices weren't so loud it would be fine, but I'll just watch the Japanese only feed instead. I want to hear the girls without interruption.
Lulz, at using the music that usually gets used at graduations in the U.S. for music in the background as the girls come on stage to take their seats.
Ogasawara Mayu (Maachun) placed! I believe it was 60th.

YAMADA NANA in Next Girls!!
And Fukumoto Aina is with her. ^_____________^
I'm glad Milky and Sayaka did well, I was hoping at least Sayaka would get into the senbatsu but I am still happy with her placing. Maybe she'll be able to make it next year.
What a massive jump in numbers with Miyazawa Sae! I have the feeling that the top spot is going to have a ridiculous number of votes.
Poor under 18 girls have to leave as it has reached that time that it is considered unlawful for them to work.
I know I'm jumping the gun a bit with putting Yuko at 1 but really who else is it going to be now?
I knew the winning vote number would be ridiculously high and boy was I right.
And Oshima Yuko is currently trending on Twitter right now.
