30. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team H).
In the 2012 AKB48 General Senbatsu Election she was the highest HKT48 member to ranked at number 47, in fact she was the only HKT48 member to rank. In 2013 AKB48 General Senbatsu Election, in reality she was the highest HKT48 member to ranked at number 26. OK, Sasshi. But she’s an ex-AKB48 member, that’s another story.
28. Rina Hirata (AKB48 – Team K).
She live in Arizona, USA., for several years. That’s why she speaks good english, although she speaks with an accent sometimes (For some reason?). Talking about Arizona, I do alot of long distance driving. I do it a few times a year, I especially like driving all over the US. Arizona is probably my favorite state to go scenery driving, I highly recommend Highway 191. It might be to boring for most, if you enjoy scenery driving you’ll love it. Don’t be afraid to get lost, you’ll be surprise what you’ll find. They have some of the best National Parks and Monuments in the USA., Like Petrified Forest National Park and Grand Canyon, to name two. Also going South on Highway 89 to Page, near the Utah border. Page is must go, do a search on what’s around there (Near and not so near). I just don’t promote AKB and JPop here, I promote all kinds of stuff.

Several months back she was in a few magazine spreads, which all were good. I don’t think it’ll amount to anything. A few years back she was a pretty good push AKB48 member for a good one year peroid, it didn’t result in anything of significant. Or got her anywhere.14. Amina Sato (AKB48 – Team K).
Last month she announce she will be graduating from AKB48, which was very sad news for me. I’ve read that she will make her final performance at the AKB48 theater on January 15th, but will participate in all handshake events til the end of June. Exactly what that means I’m not sure, I hope she participate in AKB48 concerts.13. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).
12. Minami Minegishi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).
I’ve said this alot, that she might be future favorite member of mine. As much as I like her, I think this might be as high as she’ll get. She may go up a few more spots in the future, I don’t know. As always, only time will tell.9. Yuko Oshima (AKB48 – Team K Captain).
On December 31, 2013. She announced she’ll be graduating from AKB48. No date or details yet, I think they’ll make it big. Not as big as Acchan ofcourse.8. Kei Jonishi (NMB48 – Team N).7.

I just recently bought her photobook “Kojiharu”, which was number one on the weekly Book oricon ranking. It sold about 61,000 copies. According to Oricon it’s the highest selling female solo photobook in history (Japan), about 4,000 copies more than Sasshi photobook “Sashiko”.
