My Favorite J-Pop Idols and J-Pop Artist.

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.

10. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48).9. Rena Matsui (SKE48).8. Miyuki Watanabe (NMB48).

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).

Nothing much to write about her, I just think she’s really pretty.6. Atsuko Maeda (AKB48).

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.

It’s free international shipping, you can also get it at CD Japan or HMV Japan.4. Momoka Ariyasu (Momoiro Clover Z).

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).

I can only imagine what it would be like for me, to see or meet her in person.

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.

An AKB48 sub-unit, I like former SDN48 member Kazumi Urano the temporary member. I do miss Natsumi Hirajima being in this group. To me this group is all win.12. Passpo.

I like their concept, although I think they need to improve it. Or evolve from it.11. S/mileage.

Ever since Yuuka Maeda left, I’ve really lost interest in this group. I like all their songs, and they continue to release songs I like. So I still check up on them.10. NMB48.

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.

AKB48 wannabe, their sales are improving big time with every release.

7. C-ute.

I’m still liking this group less and less, since I first heard of them. I really don’t know why, because I like their songs.6. No Sleeves (or No3b).

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!!!.

In my January rankings I meant to include this group, for some reason when I was doing it. I just completely forgot about them.4. Buono!

An Hello! Project idol group that comprises of 2 members from Berryz Koubou, and one from C-ute.3. Momoiro Clover Z.

This group is alot fun and full of energy.2. Berryz Koubou.

I saw them last month at AnimeNext in New Jeresy, they’re all so beautiful. This was a must go for me, I’ll drive anywhere to see them. If I could drive to Japan I would.1. AKB48.

What’s there for me to say about AKB48.

Yeah, it’s only 4 members out of what a 1,000. It’s hard to find pictures of all the members in the same picture.

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.

    8. A lot of fans distrust Milky (or think she’s rather calculating), and I’m not sure what I think about her either…
    1. I’ve heard Kojiharu is even more gorgoues in person! 🙂

    Here’s a helpful photo of most AKB48 members!

  2. Lexia, Thanks for the photo. I couldn’t understand why you send it to me, until now. I just may use in the future, to bad it wasn’t bigger.
    As for Milky, I will pay more attention to her. I just think she’s really cute.
    If you’re talking about that scandal she had last year, which I didn’t found out til several months later. That should tell now much I follow NMB48, Hopefully she learned from it.
    I just don’t understand that no boyfriend and dating thing, but that’s another story. As long as it doesn’t affect their job, it doesn’t bother me.
    After writing that I’ve just been doing a little bit of thinking, I don’t think I like any of my favorite members having a boyfriend, it would take away from my imagination…..
