My Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, October 2016.

October 29, 2016

Unfortunately I won’t be including anymore SNH48 members or any of their sister groups, which is too bad. So many cute members there.

30. Yui Kojina (HKT48 – Team H).

She kinda reminds me of Anna Iriyama, just like Anna Iriyama it kinda took a while for me to notice and take an interest in her. Unlike Anna Iriyama who I just didn’t really like or didn’t find to attractive in the beginning, whenever I  saw her she always caught my eye, made my head turn but for some reason I just couldn’t get interested in her. I think it might have had something to do with her name.

In my opinion I think she has the most beautiful and perfect body in the entire AKB48 Family.all-48-group-and-sakamichi-series-kira-boshi-bishojo-senbatsu-2016-on-young-magazine-005

29. Haruka Komiyama (AKB48 – Team 4).

She’s someone who I’ve taken an interest in for almost a year now, I guess. I think she’s super cute and super sexy, who I enjoy looking at in a bikini.cbqzartusaa9vsz28. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).

I didn’t like her in the beginning she tended to always overshadow Ryoha Kitagawa, she still does to a great degree. I’ve always thought if it wasn’t for her, Ryoha Kitagawa would be a lot more popular. I’m long over thinking that way, not completely but that’s another story. It’s been about a year now that I’ve really gotten interested in her, I don’t know about this I think the reason I’m kinda liking her is that I think she looks like a porn actress.naooooo27. Akane Takayanagi (SKE48 – Team KII).

26. Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).

I would have never guess a couple of years ago that she would develop into what she is now.0062kothjw1f6d5vy8d88j31jk28snpd25. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team BII).

She has cut her hair short actually it’s been about couple months now, she actually looks super cute with short hair.cqy2mlbvmaacmrl24. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).ctcinscuaae6qwm23. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).nogizaka46-nanase-nishino-taion-on-brody-magazine-00922. Natsumi Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team H Captain).

It might look like she moved up big time from last month ranking 5 spots, it’s the SNH48 effect. She’s superhot so it’s not a surprise, as far as I’m concern.621. Haruka Kodama (HKT48 – Team H and AKB48 – Team K).d93af05020. Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).mnkf0eu

19. Nanami Hashimoto (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

She’s the first significant member of Nogizaka46 to announce her graduation which she did on October 20th, the plan is she’s going to graduate around her birthday early next year February 20th.

She’ll be center for Nogizaka46 upcoming single “Sayonara no Imi”, which will be release on November 9th. It’s her first time being center for a Nogizaka46 single.tumblr_nybl1jnapw1rol1m7o7_128018.

She announced her graduation ealier this month on October 3rd, she’ll graduating from the group late December of this year. This makes me cry.ccjbrr0umaaxrl111. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team K).00710. Aika Oota (HKT48 – Team KIV Captain).hkt48-aika-ota-i-am-me-on-ex-taishu-magazine-0039. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).147465a78.

She just release her first solo album “Rainbow” a few days ago, support her and but a copy.46. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).

She just release a photobook very recently, got to get it. Looks like a hot one, bought her first one and it didn’t disappoint.akb48-mayu-watanabe-haru-ranman-on-shonen-magazine-0015. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).

This year she’s becoming more and more confident about showing her big boobs, I always wondered why she wore sweaters a lot early last year. And we all thought she was getting a little fat.tumblr_o1suxtbqf41sgvptro1_12804.

She won’t graduating this year after all, she’s going have a graduation concert at Yoyogi National Gymnasium on February 22, 2017. I guess she’ll leave AKB48 not long after that.akb48-haruna-kojima-kojiharu-coverstory-on-east-touch-magazine-009

AKB48 2016 Janken Tournament.

October 15, 2016

AKB48 2016 (7th) Janken Tournament (Paper, Scissors& Rock), which was held in Kobe World Kinen Hall on October 10, 2016.

I usually look forward to this it’s fun to watch, not so this year. Maybe because they did it in October, instead of around September. 98 members participated in this event.

It’s a little different this year as #1-#7 will form a unit, and #8-#14 will get to the do the B-side of the single (I guess). Top 14?, instead of the usually Top 16. So how it works their’s 7 blocks, 2 from each block will make the Top 14. then……

Top 14 :

8-14.

Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team 4).

First time she made top 14, or Top 16 as it was before. Other than that she lost either in the 1st or 2nd round the previous 4 years.1170362_1200Saya Kawamoto (AKB48 – Team 4).

You could say she’s had a very good year, this year. Also ranking 27th in the election.011_size9Mako Kojima (AKB48 – Team 4).

In her 4th Janken Tournament she finally made it in to the 4th round.003_size9Mayu Ogasawara (AKB48 – Team A).

She announced her graduation on October 14th, it looks like maybe a few AKB48 members leaving by the end of year. She’s a 1st Generation NMB48.cqqlsnuumaazq-wYuka Tanaka (HKT48 – Team KIV).

Her 1st AKB48 Janken Tournament, she did pretty well.1465878761570Manami Ichikawa (AKB48 – Team K).

Here’s an AKB48 member I haven’t heard or seen for a long time, looks just as cute & pretty as before.timgMariya Suzuki (AKB48 – Team K).

Since SNH48 declaration of independence from AKB48, she back to being a full time AKB48 member now. She as participated in all of AKB48 7 Janken Tournaments, losing in the 1st round in 4 of them.suzuki-mariya-akb48

5-7.

Rena Nozawa (AKB48 – Team 4).

I’m so happy for this former JKT48 member, since joining AKB48 she hasn’t really had any good luck. Maybe except joining AKB48.nozawarena2016Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).

Her first AKB48 Janken Tournment, good result.015_size9Seina Fukuoka (AKB48 – Team B).

She made Top 16 last year losing to eventual Champion Nana Fujita, unfortunately Nana last in the 1st round this year.280px-fukuokaseina2016

3-4.

Haruka Komiyama (AKB48 – Team 4).

I just love this girl she’s so cute and hot, in her 2 previous AKB48 Janken Tournament she lost in the 2nd round both years.005_size9Nagisa Shibuya (NMB48 – Team BII and AKB48 – Team 4).

A lot of Team 4 made Top 14.008_size9

2. Ami Yumoto (AKB48 – Team K).

In 2013 AKB48 Janken Tournament she made Top 16.e215bf499bb5a630673ee0dc7174baa4

Winner

Miku Tanabe (AKB48 – Team B).

She ranked 12th in AKB48 1st Janken Tournament in 2010, in between the 1st and the 7th which she won. She lost either in the 2nd or 3rd round.

Congraduations to Miku.bandicam-2016-10-11-15-58-07-184

I can’t believe it not a single AKB48 regular senbatsu member made Top 14, the 1st time ever. Oops my mistake it’s not obvious but Mako Kojima is.
