Viewer Question

With Maeda Atsuko’s graduation, it left an open spot in AKB48’s Kami7. Kashiwagi Yuki, technically being the latest member to get the rank of “kami”, filled in her empty spot. However, I thought “what if another AKB kami member left soon?”

Sashihara Rino couldn’t fill in AKB48’s Kami7 because of her transfer to Hakata. Matsui Rena couldnt because she is not a member of AKB48. Matsui Jurina could but who knows how long her concurrent position will last in AKB. And, Miyazawa Sae is going to Shanghai48 pretty soon.

Looking at this year’s General Elections, there is a clear gap between rank 11 (Miyazawa) and the rest of the Senbatsu rank 12-16. And I think next year the top 11’s order wont change much, compared to the rank 12-16 area.

So, my question to you guys is: Who in AKB48 could be “worthy” enough to be granted to rank of “kami”? Also, who are your “next generation kami7”?
