A couple of days ago at the AKB48 Theater in Tokyo, the 27th AKB48 single selection was held, and yet again there have been issues surfacing about hardcore fans buying an insane number of copies to get the voting slip enclosed in each CD. Each slip allows fans to vote for their favorite AKB member, which gives the otakus a major incentive to buy multiple copies. Although this year, the fans toned down a bit compared to last year’s craziness with a guy who bought 5500 copies, the way the general election works is questionable. And to think that all those CDs will go to the trash is unfortunate as well. Check out the pictures and the videos below to give you a better perspective of how devoted these guys are to AKB.
