SKE48 Logo

SKE48 has had 175 original members over 10 generations (not including Draft, Kennin and transferred members) and a total of 198 members (Plus Draft, Kennin and transferred members). As of January 2021, SKE48 currently has 61 members and 9 Kenkyuusei.

Like in AKB48, regular auditions to recruit new members are held, and the future successful candidates, the Kenkyuusei Members (Research Students), take part of a in-training team of members that work as sub and under for the official members in various activities (mostly the Theater Performances). And then, when any of the official members graduate, a girl is promoted to fill the space. They currently have their own stage on the theater.

Some members from the 1st and 2nd generations never spent time as Kenkyuusei but rather formed later either Team S or Team KII. The remaining members spent time as Kenkyuusei before they were promoted to teams.

Aside from the first generation, all other generations have at least one member in the group. Besides the regular auditions, SKE48 also participates on the AKB48 Group Draft Kaigi to recruit new members.SKE48 Kenkyuusei (1st Gen - 10th Gen)
