My Top 30 Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, June 2015.

June 24, 2015

30. Minami Takahashi (AKB48 – Team A Captain and General Manager of AKB48 Group).

She’s going to be graduating from the group on December 8th, of this year.  I think she’s going to be releasing her 2nd solo single before then.takamina040829. Minami Minegishi (AKB48 – Team 4 Capatain). IMG_942028. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).MatsumuraInochi27.Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team 4).

It seems like she’s been getting a little bit of attention lately, which is good. I like to see and hear about her more.tumblr_n9hchxNfzx1qki7kio2_128026. Haruka Kodama (HKT48 – Team H and AKB48 – Team K).HKT48 Haruka Kodama Fairy Breath on Bubka Magazine 00225. Shihori Suzuki (AKB48 – Team K).

She graduated from AKB48 on May 21st, and her last handshake event was on May 30th. Since she graduated near the end of the month I’ll included her in this months ranking, this will her last. I wish her ‘The Best Of Luck’.

It was a joy following her.AKB48_Suzuki_Shihori_201524. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S).tumblr_nhgbgumWJf1rrlor2o3_128023. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team BII).

After all these years, she still gives me that feeling. Which I can’t figure out or put my finger on it. Which I kinda like it gives me a sentimental feeling.AKB48 Aki Takajo Akiiro Akicha on Young Champion Magazine 005

18. Asuka Kuramochi (AKB48 – Team B Captain).fcb803ae17. Rie Kitahara (AKB48 – K Co-Captain).

She’ll be Captain of AKB48 new sister group NGT48, which is scheduled to start their first Theater performance on October 1st.

Today June 24th, is her Birthday. Happy 24th Birthday, Kitarie.

5239086916. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H and HKT48 Theater Manager).

Again, congratulation to Sasshi. For coming on top on AKB48 recent Senbatsu Election, it’s the 2nd time she ranked first in the election.

Good. I think she’s become a little relevant again. Not that she was really.e390f9aece2b708281a7350f66d665d213. Haruka Shimazaki (AKB48 – Team A).o080011221317488614512. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).AKB48 Anna Iriyama Hikari no Sasuhoue on Flash Magazine 00511. Rina Kawaei (AKB48 – Team A).

Rena who announced her graduation about a couple of weeks ago, will have her graduation concert at Toyota Stadium on August 30th.

SKE48 upcoming single “Mae Nomeri”, which will be released on August 12th. She’ll be center for the single, it’s her first solo center on a SKE48 single.SKE48 Rena Matsui Hibi Saisai on Young Animal Magazine 0038. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain and AKB48 – Team K).ent17. Miyuki Watanabe (NMB48 – Team BII and SKE48 – Team S).

Although my interest in some of the older members in the AKB48 family, has diminished a little bit. My interest in her hasn’t, it’s as high now, as it ever was.febbomb36. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).

Hard to believed I didn’t like her at first, in fact it lasted for a good one year or so. Now she’s near the top.005uwNMFjw1ela1qe5xxmj30k00qoae75. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).image4. Kei Jonishi (NMB48 – Team N Co-Captain).tumblr_nm2up4MKV91tmdkp5o1_12803. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

The picture below she looks like Mayu, a few people have mention that. At first I couldn’t see it until I took a closer look a her face, I have seen a lot of pictures of her where she really looks like Mayu. I’ve also seen some pictures of her where I kinda confused her with Haruna Kojima, but that’s whole different story.20141223002048a522. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Tean B and NMB48 – Team N).

Good to know she won’t be graduating for a while, since she’s also going to be a member of NGT48.AKB48 Yuki Kashiwagi Forever Heroine on Young Champion Magazine 0051. Haruna Kojima (AKB48 – Team A).

Ok, I’m over about not seeing her in New York City, last month. Maybe not, I’m actually disappointed about not seeing her although doing it would have caused me alot of stress. It’s one of those damn if do, damn if you don’t kind of thing. I’m disappointed not going, going could have been a disappointment since their are no guarantees like a good view, this isn’t “Cheeky Parade”. Ok, That’s it, I’m not gonna write anything about this anymore.

It’s not just her I’m disappointed about not seeing also Tomu and 2 other members.


Mayu Watanabe 5th Single “Deai no Tsuzuki”, First Week Sales.

June 17, 2015

75c140d3601436d9bf49d9f8aa3af58aAKB48 Team B Member Mayu Watanabe 5th single “Deai no Tsuzuki”, which was released on June 10th. Sold 48,240 copies in it’s first week of release, to ranked number two on the weekly oricon singles chart. This single was released in 4 versions.

AKB48 7th Senbatsu Election, Final Results.

June 8, 2015

This is where fans get to vote on members they want to participate, on AKB48 next single (41st single). Several ways you could vote, probably most of the votes came from their 40th single “Bokutachi wa Tatakawanai”, which bad one voting ballot in each CD. Which is how I voted. The Final results was announced on June 6th, at “Fukuoka Yahoo! Auctions Dome”, Japan. A total of 272 members out of 304 members that were eligible to participate, participated in the election.

Except fot that one year in 2013, this is something I always enjoyed participating in. And I always look forward to.

I had 4 votes since my favorite member Haruna Kojima is not participating in this year election, they would all have gone to her. I decided to give them to NMB48 – Kei Jonishi and HKT48 – Meru Tashima, 2 votes each. Hope those 2 votes help them.

Before I start congratulation to all the members that ranked, for those that didn’t. Hey, just wait til next year.

11. Rie Kitahara (NGT48) 61,556 votes.

She’s always ranked kinda high in senbatsu election, this being her 5th time as senbatsu. But she’s never ranked this high, must be all those NGT48 fans. Showing their support for their Captain.1432638289641

10. Yui Yokoyama (AKB48 – Team A) 63,414 votes.

She continues to moved up, I like her so I’m OK with it. Although the last few years it may not seems like it at times, but the heavy pushing is still there. Just not as obvious and frequently has before. She’s going to become Minami Takahashi successor.20150602-00000002-wordleafv-0c9010857a5f320a396f2ef54dcfd4411

Wow. Where did all those votes come from. I actually forgot she’ll also be with NGT48, if I remembered that. I don’t think I would have said those things about her in my predictions.20150524-00000002-wordleafv-00a559d846bec8889a61d9e263da1a871

1. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H) 194,049 votes.

Congratulation to Sasshi for being Center.

Sasshi will be Cener for a 2nd time, she’ll join Acchan and Yuko as 2 time center for a senbatsu election single.

Wow, almost 200,000 votes. If anyone can get it, Sasshi can.20150524-00000003-wordleafv-091bb64b35f23f8293595f835eb6b6227
