Gingham Check" ( is the 27th ギンガムチェック, Gingamu Chekku) major single by the Japanese idol girl group AKB48. The members were chosen from their placements in the AKB48's 2012 general election. The single was released in Japan on August 29, 2012. It includes the graduation song for long-time headlining member  Atsuko Maeda.  2012 general election Edit
On March 26, 2012, AKB48 announced it would be holding an election to determine the lineup for its 27th major single. The field of candidates consisted of 243 members from AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, and HKT48,
and the ballots were available in the group's 26th single, "  Manatsu no Sounds Good!" The election results were announced on June 6 at  Nippon Budokan and results were broadcast live on TV for the first time.  Yuko Oshima came first, followed by Mayu Watanabe and Yuki Kashiwagi.  
This is the first single without
Atsuko Maeda in the main lineup (excluding rock-paper-scissors singles) as she did not participate as a candidate in the election, and graduated from the group two days before the single's release. This is the second time  Yuko Oshima became AKB48's center since " Heavy Rotation". This is also the last single for long-time AKB48 member Tomomi Kasai; as she would announce her graduation on December 17, 2012. Promotion and release Edit
