I’m doing this for no apparent reason, except for my own personal records. Something I can look back at, I’ll probably do this twice a year. Now and maybe, at the half way point of the year.
My Top 10 J-pop Idols.
I wasn’t going to add any AKB48 members here, if I did that I would have trouble listing ten names. The ones at number 9 and 10 aren’t really my favorite No. 9 and 10, since I like several AKB48 members more than them. I’m only adding them for variety purposes, let’s just they’re my next favorite non-AKB48 members.
10. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N (Captain)).
I fell in love with her, the first time I saw her.
9. Rena Matsui (SKE48 – Team S).
There was a time when the only reason I like Rena, was because I hated Jurina (about the first 2 months). I like Jurina now in fact I like her alot, the more I like Jurina the more I’m liking Rena. I don’t think she has anything special, but just something about her. That attracts me to her.
8. Miyabi Natsuyaki (Berryz Koubou).
6. Yuuka Maeda (S/mileage).
She just graduated from S/mileage and Hello! Project on December 31, 2011. To concentrate more on school, which sucks to me, since she was my favorite member in S/mileage. This might be the end of her J-pop Idol career.
4. Yurina Kumai (Berryz Koubou).
3. Momoka Ariyasu (Momoiro Clover Z).
1. Haruna Kojima (AKB48 – Team A).
Was their any doubt who be number one, not for me.
Top 12 Favorite J-pop Groups.
I wasn’t going to include any sub-units or sub-groups here, since I like some them. I will.
12. Watarirouka Hashiritai 7.
10. SUPER GIRLS.
The only reason they’re rank ahead of NMB48, is they’ve been around longer. I don’t follow SKE48, but I’m trying to get to know some of the main members. It took me about 4 or 5 months to get to know all the AKB48 members (Yes, I did take my time), I’m not gonna go through that again.
7. No Sleeves.
Now that Yuuka Maeda is gone, I don’t know if I’ll lose interest in them. They do have some cute new members and Kanon Fukuda is still there, only time will tell.
They’re known as a group I think they’re more of a Hello Project sub-group, they’re a trio with 2 members from Berryz Koubou and one from C-ute. They were my second favorite J-pop group in the beginning, until I found out they really weren’t a group or at least didn’t I think so.
3. Momoiro Clover Z.
Here’s a group I realy like in the beginning, they were the second J-pop group I got really excited about. For a few days I was all Momoiro Clover, around that time I found out Akari Hayami who was my favorite member in group at that time was leaving. I’d kinda loss interest in them in fact I actually completely forgot about them, around September I started to get back into them. When I started to get back into them (by this time they we’re known as Momoiro Clover Z), It was like all Momoiro Clover again at least for about a week.
2. Berryz Koubou.
AKB48 is the only J-pop group I follow (or anything for that matter), and I do mean I follow them big time. I’m actually losing sleep over them, it’s not as bad as it was in the beginning.
