"Flying Get" (フライングゲット Furaingu Getto?)[a] is the 22nd single by the Japanese idol girl group AKB48, released on August 24, 2011.[1][2] Its members were chosen by the AKB48 2011 general election.

2011 General Election[edit]

The participating members were chosen by AKB48's 2011 general election.[2] Each of AKB48's 21st single "Everyday, Kachusha" contained a ballot that allows the buyer to register a vote for one of the member candidates for the group's 22nd single. The top 21 vote-getters would get to participate in the title track,[1] and the top 12 from the lineup would be prominently featured in its promotions.[citation needed] The members who were ranked 22 to 40 were grouped as "Under Girls" and recorded on one of the B-sides.
