Just like the two years prior, there will be the AKB48 General Elections this year! What you must do is purchase a copy of their newest single “Everyday, Katyusha” & vote for your favourite member. (Voting instructions come with the single.) Firstly, the single’s track listing:

Sakiko is, once again, in UG for this single! So make sure to purchase type B to support her!

Now onto the elections! Last year’s election was the first that Sakiko participated in. However, she did not place. Today, though, the early results were announced & Sakiko… MADE IT! Thus far she ranked #36 (out of 40) with 814 votes. Since this is merely the first day of voting I wouldn’t hold your breath– the changes from now until the end will be very drastic. But it is a very nice thing to see. Hopefully she will place during the actual election! NOW GO OUT & PURCHASE SOME COPIES OF THE SINGLE! & VOTE! For Sakiko! … Please? Ahaha.


Sakiko has a blog!

First thing I wanted to say was that I’m so sorry for not blogging a lot! I’ve recently finished my freshman year of college so that was fairly hectic, but uh, my home life isn’t doing so well & thus my extracurricular activities have suffered as a result. I’ll try hard from now on to blog more often, though!

So onward to what this post is all about! Sakiko’s new blog: Sakiiciao! You can find the blog here! Some kind person is translating the entries over at BLOG48, which can be found here. I’m so excited! Hopefully I’ll see a glimpse of one of my fan presents. Ohoho~

AX 2011 Backstage Videos!

Here is one of the backstage videos from AX 2011! It features Sakiko & Misato! They’re writing down the Team K members & forget one of the girls… hilarity ensues! It’s definitely a must-watch video!

Tokyo Aki Matsuri!

So the Tokyo Aki Matsuri concert is finally out for purchase! (You can find the page here!) Along with the regular concert-fare, there was also a live karaoke event! Sakiko participated in two songs:

-Tonari no Banana with Team B member (& best friend, along with Misato) Suzuki Mariya!

-Anata no Christmas Eve with fellow Team K member (& best friend, along with Mariya) Nonaka Misato!

Tonari was uploaded onto YouTube!

Once Christmas Eve is uploaded, I’ll edit the post with the video!! 😀

AKB48’s 20th Single

AKB48’s 20th single entitled Sakura no Ki ni Narou (桜の木になろう) comes out on the 16th of February! The tracklisting is such:

1. Sakura no Ki ni Narou (桜の木になろう)
2. Guuzen no Juujiro (偶然の十字路)
3. Kiss made no 100 Mile (キスまで100マイル) / MINT (Type A)
3. Area K (エリアK) / DIVA (Type K)
4. Sakura no Ki ni Narou (桜の木になろう) off-vocal
5. Kiss made no 100 Mile (キスまで100マイル) / MINT off-vocal (Type A)
5. Area K (エリアK) / DIVA off-vocal (Type K)

Sakiko is in MINT, of course. But the best thing about this single is that Sakiko actually gets lines in the MINT song this time! Definitely an amazing treat for Sakiko fans. I know I’m super, super, super happy about it. And not only do I adore MINT’s song, I also really like the A-side, as well. In fact it’s my favourite AKB48 A-side! So this single is the best, in my opinion.

Buy Type A for MINT! Support MINT/Sakiko!

Yes! That’s right! Sakiko is on the cover of a magazine called “Piano Style”. Thanks to a user on S48 I will be an owner of this magazine! (Thanks again Kata!) The magazine comes with a CD of piano performances & a score book. This is amazing news for Sakiko fans! Sakiko is finally getting the attention she deserves! Right?

If you’d like to purchase the magazine, you can find it here.

Something has been added…

to Sakiko’s agency profile!! An official shop! Right now it only has three items, but it’s something! (All three of which I plan on getting for my upcoming birthday in March. Ohoho~)

I’m so happy! The more Sakiko products the better!
