With the release of AKB48’s 23rd single “Kaze wa Fuiteiru” today(Flying Get day) on the 26th of October, the voting site for their Request Hour 2012 is up as well.

What is Request Hour?

Its a annual concert held over 4 days counting down the top 100 songs by the fans, not only AKB48 songs are short listed, SKE48, SDN48 & NMB48 songs are available for voting as well.

A whopping 421songs to choose from, and that includes albums, singles, stage songs as well.

For Top 100 Request Hour Setlist 2012 at TDC, unit songs will not be available, instead a Unit Matsuri will be catering for that. Hence, for the first time, the likes of No Sleeves, French Kiss will not be performing in the actual Request Hour concerts.
