16th place in the preliminary results - what to do now?
Today, Saechan was announced to take the 16th spot with 8273 votes, which is a tad less than her preliminary results last year. Two alarm signals in one sentence.
On paper, its kinda OK. Others have done much worse. In reality, that is the most dangerous position imaginable.
Granted, some girls are in front of her that are most likely to go down (fans making a statement on first day to showcase their oshimen), but there are a lot of girls trailing who are supposed to do much better, and whose fans are going to protect them with all their might, like Nyannyan, Akarin, Sakura, Yuria, Milky, and Ricchan.
This makes the 16th spot a very dangerous place to be in, easy to drop, difficult to rise, especially given the fact how tightly packed the ranks around her are.
In other words: Vote more. Everybody can afford a single or a voting code. Buy a single, or use our campaign. Please with sugar on top and ice cream in the middle!
She has never been an Undergirl before. Count the members who have been in senbatsu in all 6 selections so far. It’s her legacy to defend.
Don’t let her go down too easily.
