I always look forward to doing this, mainly because I only do it twice a year. In January and July.
* I won’t be including Berryz Koubou and one of it’s member Yurina Kumai, they’re on indefinite hiatsu. They would have made the list.
My Top 25 Favorite J-Pop Idols singers or whatever else you want to call or consider them.
25. Reina Washino (Flower / E-Girls).
I was going to make this a Top 24, cause just like last time. I was having a hard time choosing who to put at this spot, but when it came down to doing this. You know what I just got to include this sweetie, with an angels voice.24. Nao Sakura (Team Syachihoko).
She seems like a really fun and playful girl to be with, she’s the kind of girl I would like to take to a J-Pop concert or something like that. She looks really innocent and sweet, I got a feeling she’s a really wild girl.23. Rio Watanabe (Babyraids JAPAN).
She’s someone who I’ve considered including in my favorite J-Pop idols rankings before, since I first heard of her around late 2012. For some reason I was very reluctant to do it. I’ve often fantasize about her from the first time I’ve heard of her, I still do I quite often. 22. Rina Matsuno (Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku).
I think she’s kinda funny looking, and kinda talks funny too. I think she’s really cute and I find her to be quite attractive.16. Miyuki Watanabe (NMB48 / AKB48).15. Meru Tashima (HKT48).14. Yuna Sekine (Cheeky Parade).13. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48).12. Kanako Momota (Momoiro Clover Z).11. Haruna Iikubo (Morning Musume).
I like the way she has her hair now, makes her look more sexier and grown up. It seems like her and Seran Mizorogi are good friends, and hang out together quite abit. The thought of that just drives my imagination wild.
9. Kei Jonishi (NMB48).
She probably would ranked higher, if I saw more of her. But that’s mainly due to fact that I don’t really follow and check up, on Afilia Saga that much. Regardless she’s just absolutely beautiful, I like to know how old she is. I got a feeling she’s alot older than I think.6. Miki Shimomura (Fairies).
She’s hot, and she knows it. I’ve always fantasize about her, now and then. Lately, I’ve been doing it alot. Does Fairies do any swimsuit photo shoots, I don’t think so. I would love too see her in a bikini.5. Seran Mizorogi (Cheeky Parade).
How I’ve always felt and see Miki Shimomura is the same as her, just to alot more extent. The last 2 weeks or so I guess, I’ve found her to be very annoying and childish. I think I’m just going through some kind of a phase with her, which I hope will be temporary. Or I’m just refusing to accept the fact that I’m actually starting to like Miki more than her. I use to fantasize about her, almost all the time, I can’t even remember the last time I fantasize about her. I tried not long ago, I wasn’t getting the same feeling I once was. I don’t think she has change, so it must be me. I really don’t know what it is, I just hope it’s temporay. Then it’s back to the way it was, I guess only time will tell.4. Ai Negishi (PASSPO).3. Hitomi Arai (Tokyo Girls’ Style).
It was just over a year ago that I saw her at the J-Pop Summit Festival in San Francisco, I must admit she was the reason that I went. I was thinking of going to Cuba with a bunch of friends, during my summer vacation last year. When I found that Tokyo Girls’ Style was going there, I knew were I was going to. She was everything I imagine her to be. I just love the way she smiles and giggles, it just makes me melt.2. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48).1. Haruna Kojima (AKB48).____________________________________________________________________
My Top 20 Favorite J-Pop Groups.
20. Tokyo Performance Doll.
Their songs are O.K., thay have some I really like alot. I like their dancing, kinda sexy at times. The members are nice to look at, especially Miki Shimomura. I’m taking a fancy to Rikako Inoue.17. C-ute.
It was just over a year ago, that I met them in San Francisco at the J-Pop Summit Festival. Being with them at the tent (almost) alone at the “Meet and Greet” for a good minute or two, it was just so much fun. Get well soon Ayano, just don’t come back til you’re really well and ready.14. Babyraids JAPAN.
13. Yumemiru Adolescence.
To me the most irrelevant group in the AKB48 family, they’re just the group I find hardest to get interested in. I like their songs, I like some members. But, I just find them….., I don’t know. It’s not as bad as I make it sound, I find them better more fun, more entertaining, etc. Than probably more than 95% of the J-Pop Girl Idol groups I know.11. NMB48.
I really did like them alot in the beginning, I thought they were very unique. They’re slowly becoming like AKB48, they’re even getting a sister group. You never really use to see them in any bikini photo shoot, not that their’s anything wrong with it. I like them better when they weren’t do it, it’s rare and only some members do it. I just hope it doesn’t become too much, like AKB48 and her sister groups.9. Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku.
My interest in them has diminished a little bit, I still find them very entertaining. I still follow them quite Closely. Ever since Hirono Suzuki graduated from the group in April 2014, I never felt same about this group as when she was with them.8. HKT48.
Idoling!!! will be disbanding this October, which is really bad and sad news for me. They were one of the first J-Pop idols groups, I got really into. I basically followed them almost on a regular basis. They never disappointed me, when they actually disbanded it will be sad day for me. I especially will miss the “Hashimoto” sisters, Kaede and Ruka.
4. Morning Musume.
I’ve been buying alot of Cheeky Parade stuff, since I saw them in October last year. Like a calendar and a photo book, to name a couple. Back to “iDOL Street”, I don’t really know who manages them or controls what events or activities they do or any of the kind of stuff. Whoever it is, is doing a shitty job right now.1. AKB48.
