My Prediction For AKB48 8th Senbatsu Election (Top 20 Only).

May 30, 2016

*450th Post.

AKB48 8th senbatsu election, voting will begin on May 31st. With the final results being announced on June 18th.

I’m going to have 6 voting ballots, and it’s all going to go to “Haruna Kojima”.

  1. Yuki Kashiwagi – I think she’s going to get alot of votes from those NGT48 fans, which should be enough to get her to the top.

2. Rino Sashihara – Watch her proved me wrong she always does, I think those vote counts for the top 3 are going crazy.

3. Mayu Watanabe – I honestly think she’s going challenge for number one, may even get it. I’m only predicting her 3rd, because when I do these predictions she has more times than not been a disappointment for me.

4. Sayaka Yamamoto – A lot maybe thinking this to high for her, I think not. Don’t be surprise if she ranks higher, although I can’t see her ranking ahead of those 3 members above.

5. Sakura Miyawaki – The way she’s being promoted or push, you’d think she’ll be a shoo-in for number one. I think this one is either going to be a boom or bust, boom being maybe Top 2 or 3, bust just inside the top 10 (maybe #9).

6. Jurina Matsui – I have a feeling I might be underestimating her.

7. Rie Kitahara – I have a feeling I’m way overestimating her, I think those NGT48 fans will come through for the Captain.

8. Haruka Shimazaki – I’m just wishing the best for her, the higher she ranks. The happier I will be.

9. Haruna Kojima – I’ll just be happy if she ranks in the Top 10.

10. Yui Yokoyama – I don’t know if replacing Minami Takahashi as Team A Capatin & GM of AKB48, will mean anything, I’m sure it will abit.


* After the Top 10 it’s gonna be hard to predict, I’m fairly confident who I predicted in the Top 10. Will be in the Top 10, in what order remains to be seen.

I think after the Top 10 their will be alot of surprises, I’ll give it my best shot. Hope most of it is right.


11. Akane Takayanagi – Evey year when I do my predictions, I always overestimate her. Will see, this does seems very high for her.

12. Tomu Muto – This hottie has been moving up kinda big time in every election she has participated in, this year will be no different (Don’t proved me wrong).

13. Haruka Kodama – Not really sure where she’ll ranked in the end, I’m confident she’ll make senbastu.

14. Akari Suda – She drop big time last year, but she seems to be a popular SKE48 member.

15. Nao Furuhata – Some big names in SKE48, won’t participating in this years election. I think it could benefit her.

16. Minami Minegishi – Just when she’s going to move down, she moves up.

17. Yuria Kizaki – She’s due to move up big Time, hope this is the year.

18. Mio Tomonaga – Why is this girl so popular.

19. Marika Tani – I don’t anything about this girl, but she’s a regular SKE48 senbatsu member. She was the highest 1st time rank member in last years election.

20. Mion Mukaichi – What, I don’t think she’ll ranked anywhere this high. I don’t know else to put here that actually a chance at a Top 20.

Looking that those names unlike my previous predictions, I thnk I’m being safe this year.

* I know why Milky is not participating in this year election, as for Kei Jonshi. I could guess, but I won’t.


My Top 30 Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, May 2016.

May 29, 2016

30. Natsumi Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team H Co-Captain).

With Minami Takahashi graduation, last month a spot open up. Natsu is someone I’ve considered and wanted to include here for the longest time, so finally I decide to include her here. Their were other members I considered, maybe not. Maybe 1 or 2, but it was like I’ll just put them here to fill this up. I guess in a way it was like that with Natsu, no that’s not true. I think she’s really pretty, and been liking her alot for a long time now. To me she has the most sex appeal in HKT48.3-16040216415029. Minami Minegishi (AKB48 – Team K Captain).tumblr_o0yjqcTuLV1u9k8rpo9_128028. Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).527. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team BII).

I haven’t really seen much of her the last couple years, not from not trying. I’ve seen what seems like some recent pictures of her, she looks gorgeous and more mature. Before she was way to cute, for me to see her like that. I hope I see and they show more of her, cause I really want to move her higher in the rankings. It’s hard to do that to any member, who you rarely see or hear.CYM-_ozU0AAh4sr26. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

In the beginning I really didn’t like her and didn’t pay any attention to her, it wasn’t until late last year that I started to check her out. She’s just so sweet and nice, that I feel kinda guilty on how I thought about her before.

A few days ago May 25th, was her Birthday. Happy 22nd Belated Birthday, Nanase.tumblr_nx704nGIVI1ujdzjko5_128025. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).2fa867eac8b508114d1b91118ea81051_706b5316e09a911d2cc3df5a026fc7ca

24. Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team B).tumblr_o0ucumsHJe1usci4io6_1280

It just might be me it look like she gain abit of weight a couple of years ago, anyways I think she’s back to where she use to be. And it looks like she’s doing more bikini shoots again, which is great. She looks great in a bikini.NGT48 Rie Kitahara Life Goes On on Bomb Magazine 00416. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H and HKT48 Theater Manager).

She’s a “Sexy Bitch”, I mean that in a good way. And a cute one.HKT48 Rino Sashihara Sashihara Style on Bomb Magazine 00515. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).

Another member I don’t see that much anymore, who I would love to see a lot more.CdrNwaBUkAAUXJq14. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team K).

Cute little Mion is center for AKB48 latest single “Tsubasa wa Iranai”, which will be release in a couple of days. That’s the election single.tumblr_o0ucnkCLqJ1usci4io2_128013. Haruka Shimazaki (AKB48 – Team A).

I still don’t understand why so any people still hate her.AKB48 Haruka Shimazaki Cool or Warm on M-Girl Magazine 00412. JiaMin Zhao (SNH48 – Team SII).

I think she’s still on hiatus, which she does now and then. Since she didn’t participate in SNH48 current single “Dream Land”, which is SNH48 election single. This really sucks but she won’t be participating in SNH48 3rd election, in last years election she was on top.zhaojiamin201508101616g11. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team KIV Co-Captain and AKB48 – Team A).

AKB48’s Golden Girl. It seems like she been everywhere for almost a good 2 years now, and I’m not tired of it.HKT48 Sakura Miyawaki Chou Nichijou no Kanojyo on Young Animal Magazine 00610. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).

You guys all know how much I love her hair, I think she’s has the most beautiful hair in the world. I’m always writing it whenever I get the chance (Not as much as before), But it still looks the the same as it did 4 years ago.UTB_06_2015_VOZ48 (23)9. Aika Oota (HKT48 – Team KIV Captain).tor_947320820_38. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain).NMB48 Sayaka Yamamoto Uta to Guitar to Yamamoto Sayaka on WPB Magazine 006

7. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).

Mayu has short hair now, hope it grows on me. I like her better with long hair, she does look more mature and more serious.AKB48 Big3 Best of Best on Flash Magazine 004


6. Miyuki Watanabe (NMB48 – Team BII and AKB48 – Team B).

Still no date when she’ll be graduating from the group, but I think her last handshake event was today (May 29th). She cut her hair short again, a few weeks ago. Unlike last time, she actually looks good with short hair this time around. I still like her better with long hair.1-15122520195V005. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).

She’s been doing a lot of bikini shoots since turning 16, which is great for me. I love seeing her in a bikini.HKT48 Meru Tashima Yatto Kimi ni Aeta on Manga Action Magazine 0054. Kei Jonishi (NMB48 – Team N Co-Captain).tumblr_o3l3t8Dt1Y1slxthzo1_12803. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).3b8a21202. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NGT – Team NIII).

  1. Haruna Kojima (AKB48 – Team A).AKB48 Haruna Kojima Hatsuharu on Young Magazine 003* Haven’t done this before even though, I wanted to. This may give you a better understanding of this ranking.

A really big gap between 1 & 2, same with 2 & 3. Really no gap between 3 & 4, I could have gone with something like 3A, 3B with that. It’s very, very little but their’s abit of gap 4-5. 5-6 Not much (larger than you may think), 6-8 are all very close it could go anyway between the 3. 8- 9 a very large gap, 9-10 not noticeable, but their is a gap. 10-15 are all very close, 15 is slowly separating away from that group. 15-16 large gap, but not as large as before. 16 & 17 (or Sasshi & Kitarie) are basically inseparable or equal, Ok. Sasshi might have a slight edge (She’s always had a slight edge). 17-18 kinda big gap, it’s getting smaller with time. 18 & 19 no gap although it’s just matter of time when 19 (Zhehan Wu) will distance herself from Ryoha, how far Zhehan Wu will go and how fast only time will tell. Highly unlikely, but a possibility she has chance at challenging for the Top 10 at the end of this year. I’ve been following SNH48 on a regular basis, for more than a good year now. With no end in sight, if anything my interest in SNH48 is increasing. And the fact that I think she looks like Yurina Kumai, will go a long way. Hey if she didn’t go on hiatus, way back on September of last year SNH48 JiaMin Zhao (12) , would have entered the Top 10 a few months ago. 20-24 if any gap very small, same with 24 & 25, and 25-27. 28 -29 really no gap, 29-30 might be a bigger gap than I think.

JKT48 3rd Senbatsu Election 2016.

May 10, 2016

The last month or two I’ve been getting back to checking out JKT48 again, I don’t remember them having sex appeal maybe just some members. They definitely have it now, they’re more mature and more professionally beautiful. If you know what I mean.
