Spread over 4 days, members from ALL 48 groups will be performing songs as voted by fans in this top 100 countdown. So for yesterday’s performance, it covers ranked 100 to 76.
This year’s request hour will be void of unit songs so the likes of No Sleeves, French Kiss will not be performing nor their songs are in the voting list last year. Which means, we can get to see more of the stages songs which was probably pushed out back in 2011.
Let’s move over to the last quarter of the ranking.
Right before the concert began, fans were treated to a surprise and a shock. The official rival of AKB48, NGZ46 took the stage for the opening act with their new song set to debut next month. Well, given that NGZ is under Aki-P’s care, it doesn’t really matter(to him anyway).
After that surprise(and shock probably) is over, the 100th song in the ranking began.
And here’s the list for day 1, 100th to 76th.

E01: Lost the Way (DiVA) – Theme song for the Ultraman movie which will also feature DiVA members.
E02: Mujineki (Iwasa Misaki)
E03: Flying Get (All members in day 1)
All in all, day 1 has quite a fair chunk of team K songs appeared, a total of 7 whereas its only 3 each for teams A & B. Good choice by management to remove the unit songs else they will be eating up a portion of the rankings based on 2011 results. Of course, the usual popular unit songs haven yet to appear, the speculation now is where will they stand, is it right at the last day in top 25, or their popularity waned and appears right at 75 onwards?
The only way is to keep along as day 2 will begin this evening! And personally, I can’t wait for day 3 to arrive as I will be watching the LIVE screening in GV theater!
Before anyone asks how the heck did I get this rankings up, simple, either twitter or G Plus.
