30. Minami Takahashi (AKB48 – Team A Captain and General Manager of AKB48 Group).
Her and Sakura Miyawaki will be center on HKT48 upcoming single “12 Byou”, which will be her released on April 22nd. Support her and HKT48, buy a copy or 2.28. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).
It seems like SKE48 is really counting on her to be one their future stars, she’s been heavily promoted right almost from the beginning since she was a Research Student. Even with some really heavy pushing way before last year AKB48 senbatsu election, she failed to ranked. If she ranks in the top 30 or 20 in this years election, then it would have been worth it. Several big names aren’t participating in this years election, that may help her. If she doesn’t ranked I’m a little worried, the heavy pushing could end. I think she’s really pretty, I would like to see alot of her.
To me she’s like the Anna Iriyama of SKE48 although Ann Iriyama is not as heavily push as she once was. They’re heavily push with really no results, but the heavy pushing continues.24. JiaMin Zhao (SNH48 – Team SII).
Here’s a good SNH48 video that I can’t stop watching since January, it features her and JingYi Ju. Check it out, the song is as good as the video. “Yuan Jin Shi Jian” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMtQt30NseM .23. Shihori Suzuki (AKB48 – Team K).22. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team BII).
I think I said this last month also, but for more than a good month now. I’ve just been fascinated by her.20. Aki Takajo (AKB48 – Team B).19. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team 4).18. Asuka Kuramochi (AKB48 – Team B Captain).17. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team KIV Co-Captain and AKB48 – Team A).
Her and Haruka Kodama will center for HKT48 upcoming single “12 Byou”, it’s her first time as center for an HKT48 single. Although she’s been center for an AKB48 single before.16. Rie Kitahara (AKB48 – Team K Co-Captain).15. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H snd HKT48 Theater Manager).14. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).
I’m kinda glad she got transfered to SKE48, I’m seeing and hearing more of her. Since the last couple of years she was with AKB48, before she got transfered.13. Haruka Shimazaki (AKB48 – Team A).12. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).
She won’t be participating in AKB48 senbatsu election this year, which starts next month. Considering what happen last year, it’s understandable. It’s to bad with my favorite member not participating, I would have given her 1 vote.11. Rina Kawaei (AKB48 – Team A).
She also won’t participating in AKB48 upcoming senbatsu election, since she has announced her graduation several weeks ago. It’s not a surprise.10. Aika Oota (HKT48 – Team KIV Captain).9. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain and AKB48 – Team K).8. Rena Matsui (SKE48 – Team E and Nogizaka46).
I started this ranking just over 4 years ago (February 2011), she’s only 7th member to ranked in the Top 3. The rest are Haruna Kojima, Tomomi Itano, Atsuko Maeda, Yuki Kashiwagi, Mayu Watanabe and Mai Shiraishi.2. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NMB48 – Team N).1. Haruna Kojima (AKB48 – Team A).
I’ve mention this before here, since it was such a great Photo Book I’ll mention it again. I just bought her latest Photo Book, I’ve look at it several times already. What can I say, But it’s great.
Sadly (Maybe not) she also won’t participating in this years AKB48 senbatsu selection, it would been more fun following it if she was participating. This will likely take some of the interest away from following it, the good news is I will be able to give my 4 maybe 8 votes to some else. Which will make it more interesting, cause I don’t know who I will give it to. In the previous elections I participated in all my votes when to Kojima, except for one year when I had 10 votes, I gave 2 to Lovetan. I will making my annual predictions about a week before it starts, sometime next month.
