I feel really bad about this last week July 16, was AKB48 Research Student Rina Hirata Birthday. I saw her earlier in March, in Washington, DC. I was really impressed by her, shame on me forgetting her Birthday. Anyways’s I’m late but, Happy 14th Birthday, Hirarii.
Also yesterday July 22, was AKB48 Team K Member Moeno Nito 20th Birthday.
Also Happy Birthday in advance to AKB48 Team 4 Member Shiori Nakamata, who turns 20 years old on July 25.
And also to AKB48 Team K Captain Sayaka Akimoto, who turns 24 years old on July 26.
With so many members in the AKB48 family, I just can`t post everyone`s Birthday. I still wish them a Happy Birthday, even if I don`t do post on them. Like Komorin who turn 18 years old a few days ago (July 19), a member I like alot.
It’s about the half way point of the year, so it’s time for this. I do this twice a year in January, and in July.
Top 10 J-Pop Idols.
I really hate to rank her ahead of Sayaka, but I’m liking Milky more and more. And their’s no stopping it, believe me I’m trying to stop it. Cause I like Sayaka Yamamoto alot.7. Miyabi Natsuyaki (Berryz Koubou).
5. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48).
She will release her second solo single ‘Otona Jelly Beans, on July 25. Buy it, buy all the versions, I am.
I don’t like her as much as before, but I still like her alot. Honestly I don’t know why I like her so much, she just has that something? Just as I wrote in my last ranking about her, I don’t know why I have her rank this high.3. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48).2. Yurina Kumai (Berryz Koubou).
The only reason she’s rank ahead of Yukirin, is I met her at AnimeNext, in New Jersey, last month. I have to say that was one of the biggest thrill in my life, she’s just absolutely gorgeous.1. Haruna Kojima (AKB48).
My Top 14 J-Pop Artist.
14. Morning Musume.
I like their songs but until recently I didn’t really care too much about this group, I like the current line up. I like the 9th and 10th Generation Members, I especially like Haruna Iikubo.13. Watarirouka Hashiritai 7.
I like them about the same as SKE48 if not a little more, I just don’t know as many members from them as I do from SKE48. The member I do know I like alot, and I do follow them a little more than SKE48.9. SKE48.
I’m starting to check on them alot more, than before. The only reason they’re rank ahead of NMB48 is they been around longer, have more songs. Which means more songs I like, I know alot more SKE48 members than NMB48.
8. Super Girls.
My favorite AKB48 sub-unit, these are 3 fairly push and popular members. They’re also regular AKB48 senbatsu members, not to mention that they’re also all 1st Generation AKB48 members. So why their singles don’t sell more than it should, I just don’t know why. Heck, French Kiss even sells alot more than they do.5. Idoling!!!.
What’s there for me to say about AKB48.
Here’s an interesting video, with alot of those groups doing ‘Heavy Rotation’, if want more info just search ‘ Yubi Matsuri – Heavy Rotation’.
Artist involved – Idoling!!!, Rino Sashihara (Sasshi organize this thing), Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku, Super Girls, Tokyo Girls’ Style, Nogizaka46, PASSPO, Buono!, Momoiro Clover Z and Watarirouka Hashiritai 7. This was perfom on June 25, 2012.
This was a very, very good week for new singles releases.
