I do this twice a year in January and July, because I went on a 2 week vacation last month. I’ve decide to this in August, I did the same thing in 2014.
My Top 25 Favorite J-Pop Idols, singers, or whatever. These days the definition of it can be very vague.
25. Haruna Ogata (Morning Musume).
When I went to see Morning Musume at Anime Matsuri in Houston earlier this year, believe it or not she was the first one that caught my eye. I always thought she was kinda cute, seeing her in person was I thought she was just super cute.
I was really into her I guess for a couple of years or so, then I just lost interest in her. Earlier this year I’ve started to get back to kinda following her, she’s just as fun and funny and beautiful as ever.23. Karin Ogino (Yumemiru Adolescence).
Taking about releasing solo albums, wasn’t Mayu suppose to release a solo album this year. I haven’t heard anything about that for the longest time, same with that solo single.19. Yuna Sekine (Cheeky Parade).
She’s just absolutely beautiful and sexy, seeing her person in San Francisco at the J-Pop summit was a big thrill for me. She’s as beautiful in person as she looks in her pictures, I think she’s a cousin of Kei Jonishi. So I’ve read in a few places.
Very few idols I enjoy following more than her, even when my interest in Team Syachihoko was diminishing which it was at one time. I was always checking her out. I don’t think their’s an idol I want to hang out for a good time more than her. She cut her hair short earlier this year, I prefer long hair. But she looks super cute in short hair.
Since she graduated from NMB48 on August 9th, I wasn’t going to include her in this ranking. Since I usually do this in July and it’s Milky, what the hell. She will be missed.13. Meru Tashima (HKT48).
A master at fan service, maybe not quite a master yet. She really knows how to please her fans, and make new fans. Or depending who are, you may find her somewhat annoying. I think Haruna Ogata is more of a master of fan service.11. Kei Jonishi (NMB48).
I sill can’t get over how I failed to notice her when I was basically standing beside her, in Houston at Anime Matsuri. Just me and my friend with Morning Musume, for about minute. When I finally realize who I was standing beside with, and got over shock. They started to head out, talk about a miss opportunity.8. Seran Mizoroigi (Cheeky Parade).
I’m afraid the days of her being my J-Pop sexual fantasy girl has ended, she’s still a lot fun and very funny at least I think so. And I still find her cute, so she’s still worth following.7. Asami Watanabe (Cheeky Parade).
It seems like I’ve been following her and PASSPO for a long time, actually I guess I have. Since I first heard of them and became a fan about 3 or 4 months after I discovered J-Pop, she’s turning 24 next month. For some reason I think she’s a lot older.4. Yukafin Doll (Afilia Saga).
I thought she was suppose to graduated from Afilia Saga earlier this year, when I saw her on the cover of Afilia Saga latest single. I was very surprise she was still in the group, I’ve been trying to find out about her graduation. It seem like it’s all been forgotten, no one is mentioning it. Which is find by me.3. Hitomi Arai (Tokyo Girls’ Style).
I was going to write something sexual about her, but I’m sorry. I just can’t say anything bad about her, it’s not bad some would say sexual feelings is healthy. But, you know what I mean.2. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48).
Still no date about her graduation, but I think she’s still good for one AKB48 single. And I’m not talking about the one were fans voted you on._________________________________________________________________________________________
My Top 20 Favorite J-Pop Group.
20. Babyraids JAPAN.
My interest in them has started to pick up since earlier this year, after it was declining a little bit for a while there. Yuzu Ando is still on indefinite hiatus, I hope she comes back soon. Or, that she comes back all.17. C-ute.
They’ve announce they will disband in June of next year, that’s like almost a year from now. So, I won’t really say anything about this just yet. They’re sentimental favorite of mine, so this is shitty news.16. 9nine.
Just when I was really staring to get into “Umika Kawashima” earlier this year, she graduates on July 23rd. I really like 9nine even before I really thought anything of her, cause I really didn’t before. So this shouldn’t really matter, I think it will. I will definitely miss her, for a while a couple of months ago. She was probably the J-Pop idol I was fantasizing about the most.15. Fairies.
Whenever theirs an Anime Convention here in North Amierica, I’m always requesting them to invite this group. I’ve even requested a couple times for them as guest at J-Pop summit in San Francisco. This group is just becoming more and more sexier, each time I see them.14. Country Girls.
They’re probably ranked just a little higher than they should be, I guess because I just saw them last month at the J-Pop summit in San Francisco. I actually considered not attending, I like them but not enough to drive 3 or 4 days to see them. I like Seira Jonishi who I would love just to see, but she’s no Hitomi Arai. I’m glad I did go, had a lot of fun there with group. I’m actually following them very closely since seeing them.12. Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku.
They’ve had a lot members graduate the last several years, at least they’re being replaced by some cute members. I don’t really follow SKE48 that much, I think I like them better now. They seem a lot more fresh and fun.9. Nogizaka46.
All things being equal, I think they’re very close to AKB48 level. Maybe even little above AKB48. Then again maybe not they’re having great singles sales, it’s a little misleading the same can be said about AKB48.8. Yumemiru Adolescence.
This group has it all, and Kyouka is just developing very well.I think this is very funny them doing the Domobics dance, which Tokyo Performance Doll keep doing at the J-Pop Summit. Or at least this is what I think it is.7. HKT48.
They’re doing more activities this year, last year they barely did anything. I like them, but for the longest time it was hard to find anything new on them. And is Naomi Anzai ever becoming a sexpot5. SUPER GiRLS.
3 of their 4 singles in the last 3 years, have been summer singles. I was going to say find by me, bikinis on the cover. Unfortunately not this year, 3 years ago they didn’t either. Must because of those very young new members.
For now they will be a 7 member group as Marin Yamamoto & Mariya Suzuki, I think will be on a 2 year hiatus to study in Los Angeles, USA. Also going with them will “GEM” member Maya Takeda, I wrote in one of my post she was graduated from the group. It’s not true just like the other 2 she will be just on hiatus.2. Morning Musume.
I guess just before I went to see them in February at Houston for Anime Matsuri, my interest in them was probably as low as it ever was since I started to get to really into them during the Summer of 2012. The decline started around the end of the summer of 2014, it’s not has bad as it sounds. Although it was at the lowest its been since I started following them, it was still a lot higher than almost all the idol group I like. I guess the only bad thing about this was I really didn’t get to know the 12th generation that well. Ever since that time in Houston my interest them has been going up, it’s probably higher now than it ever was. And it hasn’t even reach it’s peak yet. Right now they’re the group I’m paying the most attention too, and this includes AKB48. I said the same thing a few times a couple of years ago, in reality that wasn’t really the case. This time it really is.1. AKB48.
It’s been a long, long while now. I really find them very frustrating to follow, I don’t even know where to start. If anything they have quantity if not quality.
It’s been going on almost forever but I really hate when they have other members from their sister groups on their singles, it was bad then. It’s just getting worse and worse. A lot more I could say what I don’t like, then this go on forever.
Since I don’t have a problem with AKB48 Team 8, I’ll post picture of them.
