Just a few hours ago, Request Hour Setlist 2012 day 2 ended. And along with that the trending twitter phase “チームＫ祭り” in Japan. While some lamented that it’s 1 day too early, some added that we should not forget SKE48, with 3 out of their 8 singles charting on the setlist.
Currently SKE48 managed to only have 5 songs in the chart, seconding only to AKB48 with with 45…so far.
Yes, the other parts of the “48” family had no chance to appear yet.
That said, something interesting happened today related to the number 65. Even Akimoto Sensei made a comment on G+ about it.
This is reference to a pre-concert tweet by Togisaka, the theater manager for AKB48, announcing that Position 65 is Arashi no Yoru ni wa, a mistake he made while preparing the tweets.
Now for the Setlist and ranking for day 2,

My rant… Tsudere is too low!
If I’m patience enough, I might get to hear Sashihara’s new song later~ As an encore…
Else I leave you be, waiting for the 3rd day of the RH2012.
Btw, 3rd and 4th day will be screen in Singapore at GV. So do get the ticket, if you want to watch it live.
Update: At the end of the concert, it’s announced that AKB48 will be performing in all 47 prefectures in Japan for an upcoming Nation wide tour.
The girls from JKT48 also appeared on stage with Takahashi Minami, Minegeshi Minami, and Kashiwagi Yuki, appealing for their sempais to join them in a performance on the 25th of February in Indonesia.
They might be referring to the Nihon Indonesia Pop culture festival.

Insert by Ken0601: A sign of things to come for the next 2 days? So far, we have not heard much from Team A, especially from their current A6 stage. It may be a good one as it may appear later or even tomorrow in higher rankings, or in the worse case scenario, totally unranked. The shockers of the day, not just other than TGSK unintentional leak, but it is the early appearance of strong unit/team songs and of course, Namida Surprise & RIVER taking up 50s spots. A big shock indeed for the single that brought the group top at Oricon charts for the first time. It may point out that given the out reach the group as done for the past year, newer fans may be more familiar with the current releases or a few back-dated till 2010 earliest. Thus, the earlier popular singles and stage songs will probably be pushed out away.
And my 4 votes for this RH, the 4 songs have yet to appear though. Not sure is it a good or bad sign, but let’s await the final 50 songs countdown later!
