We know Chieri was the only understudy to rank, and according to Tsubasa's post, we'll be meeting new successor characters, which means seven or fewer of the nine successors we're familiar with ranked. Most likely fewer, since it looks like we're meeting several new characters.

So aside from Takamina and Yuuko, I wonder who ranked that we know. Mayu, to reflect her real life popularity? Sae probably didn't make it since she's had the shortest career as a successor (being part of the 76th generation) and, quite frankly, she doesn't get enough screentime. Who else...?

Well I guess we'll see in a few hours anyway.

My wild guess for the preliminary results.

*1 - Takamina

*2 - Yuuko

*3 - Mayuyu

*4 - Yukirin

*5 - Kojiharu

*6 - Paruru

*7 - Tomochin

*8 - Yui-han

*9 - Chieri

10 - Kitarie

What I thought she meant is that they would be releasing the full ranking of the preliminaries, not just top 10, and that way they would be able to present all the 10 new characters. Is that interpretation not possible with that announcement?

No, I think her dad seriously wants her to succeed as an idol, in order to further his Kirara research. He probably didn't mean for Chieri to react the way she did... unless he has an even bigger plan that this is all a part of. Planning ten steps ahead?

I meant when he said:
"From the start I wanted to force you out on AKB...." which is like.....almost proven in around ep.....6 or 7 I think (when the DES attacked.)

He might not be telling the truth. People have speculated that he's been planning Chieri's rise to idolhood for years. Chieri was on Lancastar at the beginning of episode 1, which means her father probably had business there. Most likely, some Zodiac factories are located on Lancastar. As for other things on the same planet... Dualium, hmm...

Well, we'll see. The smug, mysterious way he's been portrayed so far implies that everything is keikaku doori for Mr. Sono, but perhaps he makes mistakes or changes his mind too.

The big question is... why make artificial Kirara at all? What benefit will he have in creating Kirara? Free energy? Warp Drive Technology? Is it related to the light in Kirara that's so magical?

/unrelated I find it sad no one remembers Earth in AKB universe.

Both. Right now Zodiac uses dualium for these purposes, but it needs to be extracted from the soil, meaning who knows how much money spent on mining. That means if he manages to synthesize kiraras he will be making tons of money by replacing the current FTL technology.

And maybe... Just maybe... He might see the Megaroad with Lynn Minmei! I would probably flipped out if he was a secret idol otaku! (just like RL Kawamori)

So the other top 8 was indeed the main successors. I guess it's confirmed those 8 are the current most popular successors. Surprised at Tomochin getting 3rd.

The preview doesn't says much that we already didn't know from last episode. But then, they wouldn't want to give away any rank before the actual episode.

Can anyone translate this? Yeah, Kawamori, you magnificent bastard. xD

BTW, it appears that Karen had indeed recently undergone rhinoplasy just in time to perform the 4-day live request event. I'll live with that, although I'll miss her cute flat nose.
