The preliminary results for the general election were released early last week. We also have a lot of media – video and audio! There’s always the usual Weibo stuff. I’m considering something to match up the SNH48 members to World Cup teams for my own amusement, but not sure who I’d cut out. Shen Zhilin would be Germany. Finally, today marks a month’s worth of these entries! With my record, I’m shocked that I’ve lasted this long.

I already shared my thoughts in a previous post. After I made that post, the SNH48 account on tudou posted the video of the results announcement with the members. I watched most of the video and found it pretty unpleasant to watch. I’m not a fan of this part of the 48 world, and watching the end of it with Chen Si, Xu ChenChen, and Li Yuqi was especially uncomfortable to watch. Those three didn’t make it in the Top 16. ChenChen could barely speak through the segment.
Video: Team NII – Football Party teaser
I made some gifs from the teaser, check them out. I’m particularly happy with the Wan Lina & Lin Siyi gif that you see above.
There is another Behind the Scenes video. The full MV should be out soon. However, I think it should be released on June 12 – the opening day of the World Cup. It’d definitely get the most attention.
Video: Yi Jiaai and Mo Han Solo Dancing
Team NII held a handshake event at “AnimeparTy 2nd-魄-” and Yi Jiaai and Mo Han had two solo dance segments.
Look at the contrast between the two fans directly behind her. There is a wota with glowsticks that is totally into it. Next to him there is a girl who is kind of interested but also stares around and takes a phone call. Jiaai did a good job with the dance though and got a nice reception in the end.
Mo Han, who is a lot more popular, has her own cheering section right behind her. The girls on the right are her biggest fans on the planet for these 5 minutes.
Audio: Wan Lina, Jiang Yun, Chen Si
I haven’t been posting the audio covers that SNH48 members record. They usually record these karaoke apps (or something like that) on their phones. These types of covers are usually what I end up listening to when I listen to SNH48.
Chen Si – Contentment (Mayday)
Right click to download
Original. This is a good cover! “Contentment” was released in 2005 but this is my first experience with the song. Whether singing or talking, Chen Si has a really unique voice. It definitely helps her stand out.
Jiang Yun – First Kiss (AA)
Right click to download
Original. Now this is a blast from the past! This song is almost 11 years old, which is older than Suzuki Airi was at the time of this song’s original release. That’s… well, Jiang Yun did a good job with it. It’s one of the SNH48 covers that I’ll listen to again.
Wan Lina – Oogoe Diamond (AKB48)
Right click to download
Original. One of the interesting things about these audio posts is that the SNH48 members don’t post a lot of 48 music. That’s fine with me as I don’t listen to a lot of 48 music as it is. Anyways, here’s Wan Lina singing “Oogoe Diamond.”

Zhao Jiamin gained the most for Team SII. And yet again, Li Yitong gained the most for Team NII and overall. This time I think it was the preliminary results. Yuan Yuzhen passed the 20,000 mark. Li Yitong jumped two spots..

Oh… but you have Jingyi. Creepy Jingyi makes her first appearance here (as opposed to Perfect At Everything Jingyi or Bad At Football Jingyi)
