My favorite Top 25 J-Pop Idols and Top 20 J-Pop Artist, January, 2017.

January 31, 2017

I do this twice a year in January and July, although I’ve done it a couple of times in August. This was fun and interesting to do, especially trying to decide the bottom 5 in my J-Pop Artist. And the bottom 6 in my J-Pop Idols, with so many candidates to consider and with only 6 spots available.

 

My Top 25 Favorite J-Pop Idols :

* I was going include Marina Nagasawa of Houkago Princess at number 23, since she graduated from the group at the end of December last month. I decide not to, it was a last minute decision.

25. Rio Watanabe (Babyraids JAPAN).

I guess she has Marina Nagasawa to thank for this, I’ve always like her right from the beginning. Not the best dancer in the world, but I think she’s really cute.babyraids-japan-expo-interview-07-533x800

24. Mai Ozeki (Country Girls).

I really do like her, she’s really cute. she’s growing up to be a very beautiful young woman. Although I think she looks really cute in short hair, I think she looks really hot with her hair longer. I like her better with her hair long, if she cuts it short again it won’t change the way I feel about her.

On February 10th, it’s her Birthday. Happy 15th Birthday in advance, Mai.c1ojkbiusaaaolo

23. Rei Kuromiya (The Idol Formerly Knows As LADYBABY).

I debated if she actually belongs here or not, I guess she done enough music stuff to qualify.cyzneryukaejipl22. Sakura Oda (Morning Musume).

She’s the 7th Morning Musume Member to make my favorite J-Pop Idol rankings, at one time or another. By far the most, AKB48 is next with 4 members.

I didn’t like her at first, I think it was around late 2015 that I started to take notice of her. Last year in Houston at Anime Matsuri it was a big thrill for me to meet her (Ok after the fact), she was so nice. I think it was unintentional she’s a flirt, but in a really nice and kind of way. After meeting her my interest in her just grew and grew and grew.3f96e20821. Risa Yamaki (Country Girls).

I like her, she has sex appeal. To me she’s like Yuki Kashiwagi, that I find it embarrassing to watch when she tries to be cute.c05zn4gviaakgli20. Misato Misaki (drop).

I can’t remember who now, she reminds me of a cartoon or was it a comic (or both) character. I’ve like her for a long time now, and I’ve enjoyed fantasizing about her for a long time now. She has the same birthday day as me, September 9th.ctppivhuiaauxqb

19. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48).nmb48-sayaka-yamamoto-nante-suteki-na-bicho-on-anan-magazine-00518. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48).

She just release her 3rd Photo Book not that long ago, the 1st Photo Book I ever bought was her 1st one. Way back in 2011.akb48-mayu-watanabe-hip-on-wpb-magazine-00117. I must really like her cause when I went to watch Momoiro Clover Z in New York City, late last year. I was really excited about buying her T-Shirt, she really has the cutest dimples.20161117_momoclo-716. Nao Sakura ( Team Syachihoko).

Although my interest Team Syachihoko has diminished, my interest in her is just has high as it ever was at anytime. I just enjoy looking at her, I just think she’s really cute.cxojuc5vqaagosi15. Seira Jonishi (Tokyo Performance Doll).

She has sex appeal, that’s all you need to know.01%202-jonishi-seira14. Kanna Hashimoto (Rev. from DVL).

I’m getting a little restless with her, it seems like her or Rev. from DVL. Haven’t been doing that much lately.

In a few days February 3rd, it’s her Birthday. Happy 18th Birthday in advance, Kanna.24_hashimoto_kanna_00813. Meru Tashima (HKT48).

I’m really pissed off about this, Meru is not a senbatsu member for HKT48 up coming single.73590bc189af7b8690386f0d4f314a0d12. Seran Mizorogi (Cheeky Parade).

Looks like my days of fantasizing about her is just about over, it was great and it was for a very long time. I’ve never enjoyed fantasizing about anyone has much as I enjoyed fantasizing about her, great memories.ctihcd-ukaaoahu11. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46).nogizaka46-mai-shiraishi-megami-no-bitai-on-friday-magazine-00510. Kei Jonishi (NMB48).

Her 2nd Photo Book is going to be release next month, you know I’m getting this. It looks like it will be just as good, hot and sexy if not better than her 1st one. Which I really enjoyed looking at.s-sato2017011519uenisi-ogp_09. Maria Makino (Morning Musume).

I’ve been Maria Makino crazy, since October. I always did like her, but I’ve been really into her the last few months. I’ve bought a few of her solo stuff like her Photo Book and one of her Life size tapestry the one with her wearing a bikini, which I hang in my room. I really enjoy looking at the one.

It’s only a matter of time when she’ll become my favorite Morning Musume Member, but Haruna Iikubo will be very tough for her to dethroned. Time is on her side.

In a few days February 2nd, it’s her Birthday. Happy Sweet 16th Birthday in advance, Maria.maria-0308. Asami Watanabe (Cheeky Parade).

It’s become an annual thing, she has change her hairstyle again, regardless how she has it she always looks beautiful. I really can’t explain this, she’s the J-Pop Idol that I want to marry.cxb8usmvqaam8o27. Haruna Iikubo (Morning Musume).

She’s my favorite Morning Musume Member because she’s cute and funny, but mainly because she has sex appeal.xzvdmmzeqevwzjgwotfupbv-mym6. Ai Negishi (PASSPO).

She hasn’t released a photobook in a long while, she needs to soon. Especially bikini shoots, cause she really looks hot in a bikini.cw9phblvqaanr_v5. Miki Shimomura (Fairies).

I debated for the longest time if I should ranked her ahead of Ai Negishi or not.dad020d44. Yufakin Doll (Afilia Saga).

I don’t know what’s going with this graduation thing about her, first in late 2015 she announced she’ll be graduating from the group in 2016. Then you never heard anything about it, then I think it was a few months ago I read she’s suppose to graduate in early 2017. But I haven’t heard anything about it since, you know what they say “No News” is “Good News”.c0qnqkousaaibmeI didn’t notice this before, here’s a picture with her and “drop” Misato Misaki. I can’t confirm that’s Misato Misaki, it looks like her.cprob8tvmaay6we3. Hitomi Arai (Tokyo Girls’ Style).

Cute Hitomi Arai, it seems like her and Tokyo Girls’ Style get no Love and respect. Or at least not enough of it.cwom3yjwgaik_bk2. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 and NGT48).12774b8c1. Haruna Kojima (AKB48).

Her graduation from AKB48 is coming very soon, less than a month. February 23rd.2016120323596138313__________________________________________________________________________

My Top 20 Favorite Artist :

* Debated if to include ” Doll Elements” or not, who disbanded on January 14th, not to sure exactly where they would have ranked.

20. Moso Calibration.

I’ve been liking them a couple of years now, I especially like Nia Hoshino. Kinda funny looking, but I think she’s really cute.ct4fteoviae-1tq19. Fuwafuwa.

I first heard of them early last year, I don’t know a group this big. With so many cute members, I think they’re all cute.cuxwoasusaamxzr18. Niji no Conquistador.

I’ve like them for a long time now, I don’t know if it was laziness or what. I really didn’t start to really check them out, til maybe a year or so ago. A very fun group to watch. Nagi Nemoto is definitely very nice to look at.08_nemotonagi_00617. Keyakizaka46.

I think they might be a year or two away from doing any bikini shoots, can’t wait some really cute members there. Their first single was a great I like it a lot, but the next 2 singles they release I thought was kinda boring.cyqxugdukaazzka16. Kobushi Factory.

I’ve like them right from the beginning, but lately the last several months. I’ve been really into them, I especially like Rei Inoue for some reason. To me they’re like a cheap or a “Poor Man’s” version of Morning Musume, that was a compliment.cnulyclvmae5mbz15. Tokyo Girls’ Style.

Will be releasing a single, in about a month. One of the best J-Pop concerts I’ve ever seen (Top 3), was watching them at the J- Pop Summit Festival in 2014.c07drp4viaaks6814. Fairies.

Down to 5 members now, as Miria Fujita graduated from the group on January 10th. She was a cutie.cs2-gflviaegitg

13. NMB48.

Don’t follow them as much as before, with Kei Jonishi graduating soon. I’ll probably be checking them out even less.wcchw1l12. SKE48.

I never did follow them that much, they have or had a few members that I would check out regularly. But that was about it.

The 8th Generation they all look really cute, and the 7th Generation aren’t bad. So it’s looking good for SKE48.c1uk7n3vqaefpzy11. Country Girls.

They’ve been around for more than 2 years, but for some reason it seems a lot shorter. During that time they’ve had 2 members who graduated, and have added 2 members. and Momoko Tsugunaga will be graduating on June 30th. And she fitted so will with this group.

I like the fact they’re so very different from all the other Hello! Project groups, who seem to be all the same.rdxaypk10. Tokyo Performance Doll.

I think I’m still on a high from watching them at the J-Pop Summit in San Francisco last year, I just bought their latest album 2 weeks go. I’m still checking them out almost regularly, just not as much as before. I still like to fantasize about Nana & Seira.c0na1u6usaafwt19. Nogizaka46.

In my opinion the most classy, professional and discipline J-Pop girl group. Don’t ask me to explain.cohvug2vmaah2ts8. Yumemiru Adolescence.

Temporarily a 4 member group, since Rei Kobayashi is on hiatus.cxnxdnfukaaugtdYumemiru Adolescence with Tokyo Girls’ Style, as Yuumi Shida & Hitomi Arai release two singles last summer.cskdxx4uaaae9qt7. HKT48.

The most fun group in the AKB48 family to watch, lately they’ve done some things that’s annoyed me. Something AKB48 would do.70de08586. PASSPO.

I’m still debating if I like as a Band, yes still.c0_nrqeuoaave2h5. Momoiro Clover Z.

My interest in them as been diminishing a little bit for a long time now, I was hoping seeing them in concert late last year in New York City. Would change that, unfortunately it didn’t. Didn’t help either that I had a bad experience with one of the staff members, I think I got spoiled with Cheeky Parade when they came to New York City. Which I was basically allowed to chat with the members. The concert was great I enjoyed myself.tumblr_ogzqsg1hgc1r6njvto1_12804. SUPER GiRLS.

My only problem with them right now is that the last couple of years, they’re not releasing anything that much. Last year my interest in them has been rejuvenated, I’m starting to have fun following them. I think that was a great move when they transferred Nana Asakawa from GEM to SUPER GiRLS in 2014.822583. Cheeky Parade.

I just enjoy following and checking them out.cxclmy2ukaaotia2. AKB48.

They’ve dropped to number 2, nothing last forever. This maybe only be temporary time will tell.cxi75-zuqae2a651. Morning Musume.

Although it was almost a year ago, I’m still on a high from watching and meeting them at Anime Matsuri in Houston. They’re so much easier and more fun to follow than AKB48, when I’m checking them out at youtube for example. I get to see all the members unlike AKB48.mm16-akimyvision-groupphoto

 

 


My Favorite J-Pop Idols and J-Pop Artist, August 2016.

August 30, 2016

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.

And she also looks really good in bikini.5378034424. Honoka Akimoto (Team Syachihoko).

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.akimoto01_gravure0123. Karin Ogino (Yumemiru Adolescence).

I don’t fantasize about her anymore, those were great times. I still enjoy following her and her group.Cjsae1lUYAAMcp622. Moa Kikuchi (BABYMETAL).

I’ve always like her ever since she was with Sakura Gakuin, that seem like a long time ago.tumblr_o6g2ecJ3YC1us4326o1_128021. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48).

She’s going to release a solo album, at the end of October. She will also write and compose a few songs on the album.NMB48 Sayaka Yamamoto Full Throttle on Shonen Magazine 01020. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48).

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.819. Yuna Sekine (Cheeky Parade).

I’m sorry I really can’t think of anything to write about her, except I really enjoy listening to her talk. I’m all ears when she speaks.Cno8uL-VUAAbehv18. Seira Jonishi (Tokyo Performance Doll).

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.

About couple of weeks ago August 14th, was her birthday. Happy belated 20th birthday, Seira.CaxVvU0UcAEScQz17. Nao Sakura (Team Syachihoko).

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.

Her birthday is a day after mine on September 10th. Happy 19th birthday in advance, Nao.tumblr_o34tceuBbX1trwfxdo3_128016. Kanako Momota (Momoiro Clover Z).

I’m really looking forward to seeing her and Momoiro Clover Z in New York City on November 19th, got my tickets already.5189500315. Kanna Hashimoto (Rev. from DVL).

Rev. from DVL haven’t release anything much this year, I guess it’s because Kanna is doing a few stuff outside of the group.13568758_647120602111183_5037919514828633532_o14. Miyuki Watanabe (NMB48).

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.tumblr_o1tnxuY0dr1sgvptro6_128013. Meru Tashima (HKT48).

I really enjoy following her on Google+, she always does a post everyday. She usually post good pictures and videos also.meruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu12. Maria Makino (Morning Musume).

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.65204_85353_333111. Kei Jonishi (NMB48).

This really sucks, I’m not really seeing her as much as before.tumblr_nmce275UQP1rf50epo1_128010. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46).

If she was to dye her hair black, that’s probably her natural hair color. Anyways if she had black hair she would look like Mayu Watanabe.20160503_1015_0189. Haruna Iikubo (Morning Musume).

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.img201601201429064448. 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.Clyusi9UgAE0EA17. Asami Watanabe (Cheeky Parade).

She has change her hairstyle again, I wonder if this will become a yearly thing. Regardless how she has her hair, I think she’s just absolutely gorgeous.CoiHEmGVMAAMJ_z6. Miki Shimomura (Fairies).

My new J-Pop sexual fantasy girl, no that’s not true. No one will ever replace Seran Mizorogi in that department, I do fantasize sexual about her quite often.tumblr_o6wonbXQOa1rzneyjo2_12805. Ai Negishi (PASSPO).

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.CoRYU2SUMAApyh84. 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.CoYKWShUkAAW9V43. 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.ClEs53wXIAAoE4P2. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48).

Does anyone know of any Yukirin news lately that’s of any relevant and worth checking out.tumblr_ntzkzoz2Pq1u1rt3jo1_12801. Haruna Kojima (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.AKB48 Haruna Kojima Cute and Sexy on Smart Magazine 001_________________________________________________________________________________________

My Top 20 Favorite J-Pop Group.

20. Babyraids JAPAN.

I’m starting to find them a little boring to follow, I hope this changes. I really enjoy this group.CmCspnFVYAAORH419. Tokyo Girls’ Style.

Ever since they became a 4 member group, it seems they’ve been doing less activities. But, they are releasing a new single “Shinkai” tomorrow.CkKEBaDUgAA4Uyo18. Team Syachihoko.

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.CfrIeV1UIAA2maK17. 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.new-pv-release-c-ute-summer-wind16. 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.CaiOrPdVAAABrCG15. 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.CjJLanZUYAIvGO314. Country Girls.

I just love this group, to me everything they do is all win. I’m very sad about about Manaka Inaba graduating on August 4th, due to health reasons.6KKuJsc13. Tokyo Performance Doll.

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.20160703_TPD1_offshot_toukou12. Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku.

My interest in them is declining a little bit, mainly due they’re not doing much activities and ain’t releasing much lately. At least it seems like it to me.91q5BdCdvAL__SL1500_11. NMB48.

I will still like NMB48, not having Milky. Will hurt.ChNeWatVEAEZESo10. SKE48.

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.CnO7nd4UMAA2GuL9. 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.ay6Rkqs8. Yumemiru Adolescence.

This group has it all, and Kyouka is just developing very well.CoWg5tJUMAE6qScI 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.ConnrJHVIAE40Av7. HKT48.

Make Meru Tashima center again, I need to see more Meru.4433cb2db805443bb04503ed8ec059d46. PASSPO.

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 sexpot「NO%20MUSIC,%20NO%20IDOL」vol_110%20PASSPO☆5. 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.

On June 25th Rina Katsuta and Reira Arai graduated from the group. They lose 2 members added 5 new members.img_SuperGirls_AS_2016_0348414. Momoiro Clover Z.

They will be doing a concert in New York City on November 19th, I will going to that concert.tumblr_nx54t2RaJv1r6njvto1_12803. Cheeky Parade.

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.CqmSsptUIAECv3X2. 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.BM0OOac1. 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.

Team 8.

My Favorite J-Pop Idols and J-Pop Artist, January 2016.

January 31, 2016

I’m kinda rushing this, so I’m not giving this much though. I just want to get this done by the end of this month, I just hope I’m not overlooking anyone.

I’ll try to make a comment of something of interest, if not I’ll just comment when I started to like them or why I do.

I do this twive a month in January and July.

My Top 25 Favorite J-Pop Idols, singers, etc.

25. Maria Makino (Morning Musume).

I first notice her earlier last year, I find her very attractive and sexually appealing. I shouldn’t say something like that about someone so young, Pretty girl.

On February 2nd, it’ll be her birthday. Happy 15th Birthday in advance, Maria.9d71c64324. Rika Mayama (Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku).

I’ve known her way before this, but I started to really take interest in her in very early 2014. I was watching alot of Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku videos around that time, I just found her so funny. She’d always make all these funny/weird gestures, that’s the reason why I basically like her she’s always making these gestures. She is also kinda cute.Mayama_Main_Web23. Rina Matsuno (Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku).

I noticed her cause she was tall and being kinda cute help also, I have a weakness for tall females. I wouldn’t say she’s really that tall, in the J-Pop Idol world. She’s really tall.アー写_ソロ_090822. Rika Tonosaki (Doll Elements).

I’ve known Doll Elements for about 2 years or so, I guess. She’s the member who I would always notice, although I thought she was super cute. I really had no intention of wanting to get interested in her, until about 2 months. It doesn’t look like it, she has pretty big Boobs. I don’t know if this a turn off or I actually like it, she hasn’t change abit the last few years. Yeah, I’ve been fantasizing about her quite abit lately.CSprGUSVEAATAF521. Rio Watanabe (Babyraids JAPAN).

I think her dancing is better, she used to dance very awkwardly and was always a step behind the other members. I think her dancing better.

I think she’s super cool, the kind of person I like to hang out and talk with.tumblr_o0ily68v3w1spitjno2_128020. Karin Ogino (Yumemiru Adolescence).

I find her really annoying , but in a cute and likeable way. I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of her, their’s a reason why I wrote that.11934657_970570583000594_110113938719. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 and AKB48).

She can paly the guitar pretty good, I’m not bad myself. I would love to jam with her play some NMB and AKB songs, that would be fun.NMB48 NMB48 no Natsu ga Kita on Flash Special Gravure Best magazine 00218. Nao Sakura (Team Syachihoko).

I think she might be the J-Pop idol, I think I would like to hang out with the most. Her birthday is a day after mine.CXd7aRbVAAALMP417. Kanna Hashimoto (Rev. from DVL).

I’ll be honest I didn’t think her “15 minutes of fame” would last this long, she’s a real cutie so I’m glad it did. I bough her photobook, and she has a solo single “Sailor Fuku to Kikanjuu” which will be release on February 23rd. I’ll probably will buy that also.

On February 3rd, is her birthday. Happy 17th Birthday in advance, Kanna.tumblr_nz0rdb1Nsh1u1rt3jo5_128016. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48).

My interest in her has been diminishing a little bit the last year, maybe longer than that. Maybe because I don’t find her to be annoyingly cute anymore, she seems more mature. It just might be me, I don’t know. Doing alot more bikini photoshoot would fix that problem, which I think she’s been doing lately. It seem like their was a time she was barely doing any at all.s6_5662979b5778915. Yuna Sekine (Cheeky Parade).

Cheeky Parade’s fearless and emotional Leader. Yes, I would love to see her and Cheeky Parade again.policeol114. Miyuki Watanabe (NMB48 and AKB48).

I don’t know what it is with Milky and me, just when it looks like I’m starting to lose interest in her (It’s happen a few times). Before I know it, it goes way back up again.tumblr_nqge0mKVPd1usci4io5_128013. Kanako Momota (Momoiro Clover Z).

I really don’t know what to say abour her except she has the cutest smile and dimples (Lovetan may disagree).3673ce1d6a5c0cb9a54bd64f6cfcee2812. Meru Tashima (HKT48).

I’m still not sure if she’s putting on some weight or just developing, cause I’ve seen some recent pictures. It looks like she’s getting a little fat, I just remember a couple of years ago. She was so skinny.tumblr_nxg1qxenmf1sr3xtgo1_128011. Haruna Iikubo (Morning Musume).

She’s all sex appeal, to me. I’m actually getting a little excited about her right now.Iikubo Haruna-60095810. Kei Jonishi (NMB48).

What can I say about her, I haven’t already say here. If I were to have a J-Pop beauty pageant, she would win.CRg7SzB9. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46).

Is it me, it seems like she’s doing alot less activities and stuff compared to before. It seem like she was everywhere before.o08000995134502413758. Asami Watanabe (Cheeky Parade).

I’ve fantasize about having a J-Pop Idol as a girlfriend many times before, but never being married to one. The last few weeks maybe longer, I’ve been fantasizing about being married to Asami alot. My imagination can get very wild.caol1I would love to do a threesome with this two.CZeeQAIUkAAd_fR7. Miki Shimomura (Fairies).

I think she’s a tease and likes to flirt, in her good Miki way.CWWoNJSVAAA-Nuo6. Seran Mizorogi (Cheeky Parade).

Whatever it was I was feeling about her, the last time I did this ranking it’s over. Thank goodness, it was only temporary. It had more to do with Miki Shimomura, with my interest in her probably at an all time high.

I think she has change her hairstyle, I didn’t like it at first. In fact it was a turn off, I’m actually liking it now.150608Anmiran_07555. Yukafin Doll (Afilia Saga).

This sucks Yukafin Doll is graduating from Afilia Saga, I think sometime in early February. Ayami Chercy Snow & Louise Sforzur is also leaving the group around that time, Yukafin Doll is about the only reason that I’m even remotely interested in Afilia Saga. I really don’t why they’re an enjoyable group to watch and quite a few cute members.yukafin-doll-afilia-saga4. Ai Negishi (PASSPO).

It seems like her and PASSPO that a quiet 2015, they were actually very active. I’m not sure about this, I think I read somewhere that she was releasing a photobook sometime this year. I hope so the 2 she release so far were really good.B000077013. Hitomi Arai (Tokyo Girls’ Style).

She still has that very sweet smile, and is as cute as ever. Sometimes I get that feeling she’s more serious now, maybe she’s just starting to grow up. Now that I think about it, she was always kinda like that.CRwVGwNWUAAjb092. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 and NGT48).

It’s seems alot longer, it was almost exactly about 5 years ago that I first notice her. I don’t think their ever was one picture that I saw that has had more of an impact on me, than that one I saw of her that night. Huh, What?AKB48 Group Saikyo no Kami Mizugi Special! on Flash Magazine 0021. Haruna Kojima (AKB48).

When it comes to her I rarely make any comments, and really don’t talk like she’s my infinite absolute favorite. I do have a pretty good Kojima collection I think I have all her photobooks and I buy magazines with her on the cover, just to name a few. Ooh, How could I forget her calendars.Kojima Haruna 小嶋陽菜 Weekly Playboy 週刊プレイボーイ August 2015 Pics 01____________________________________________________________________

My Top 20 J-Pop Groups.

20. Idol Renaissance.

It look about a minute to consider who to put at this position, a lot of candidates. A second to decide, it wasn’t an easy one, had to chose one, and do it quickly.

I’ve know Idol Renaissance for well over a year, I like their songs. The members are really cute, especially a couple of them.rune1

19. Country Girls.

They were formed just a little more than a year ago, they already had one member graduate and added two new members late last year. Those two new members look kinda cute. They release two singles so far which I really like alot, and a new one coming very soon. I just enjoy watching them they’re so refreshing.Country Girls, Funaki Musubu, Inaba Manaka, Morito Chisaki, Ozeki Mai, Tsugunaga Momoko, Yamaki Risa, Yanagawa Nanami-58889718. Tokyo Girls’ Style.

On late December 2015 Ayano Konishi, official left the group, I prefer them as five. Oh well, nothing I can do about it. I don’t know why they have a problem with being called an Idol group, Fairies doesn’t. Then again I don’t think anyone really calls or considers Fairies an Idol Group, atleast not techically.popupgirls-03_1080x810-1080x81017. Team Syachihoko.

For a while my interest in them was diminishing, lately I’m starting to really get interested in them again also with their leader Honoka Akimoto, who I seriously considered including her back again.AMGnQcU16. C-ute.

Anytime I have a friends who doesn’t know anything about J-Pop, this the group I usually recommend or mention first.C ute, Hagiwara Mai, Nakajima Saki, Okai Chisato, Suzuki Airi, Yajima Maimi-57702815. Fairies.

Have they ever done any overseas activities outside of Asia? Miki is my favorite, but I’ve been really liking Rikako Inoue for several months now.CXewLBAUQAABMph14. 9nine.

I really like them alot as a group, although their was really no one particular member I really had any interest in even remotely following. Uki Satake probably came the closes. I guess almost a month now I’ve been very interested in Umika Kawashima, I mean I’ve been fantasizing about her alot. For a time there, almost on a daily basis.CMcmz8nUcAAh-Cj

With Babyraids JAPAN.with Babyraids JAPAN

13. Babyraids JAPAN.

Another J-Pop Idol group, which to me seem like they were doing less activities, compared to previous years. I think they’ve reach their peak a while ago, I hope they have a very good 2016. If you asked me 2015 was a disapointment, in the sense it could have been alot better.babyraids_11th-a-thumb-1200xauto-38840With Yumemiru Adolescence.with Babyraids JAPAN 212. SKE48.

I don’t know why I don’t like or follow SKE48 alot more than I should, of all the groups in the AKB48 family. I think they’re the group that have remained the most constant (Graduations not included), and they have alot of really cute members. When I do check them out they never disappoint, I should be checking them out alot more.0113f51e11. NMB48.

What I said about SKE48, is the opposite of NMB48. I check them out alot more than SKE48, more times than not I fine them rather boring. They’re more consistent than SKE48 in every sense, maybe that’s why I like them more.CQ1yW7dUEAAcTZy10. Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku.

If they release more stuff, they would probably rank higher. They’re very entertaining, almost second to none. They just don’t have enough stuff lately to keep me entertain.UMpzoWV9. Nogizaka46.

Nogizaka46 as a new sister group “Toriizaka46”, it was bound to happen. If they turn out anything like Nogizaka46, I guess it’s good. On average they’re pretty young, some really cute members.tumblr_numawxPNL91ttb2lto1_12808. Yumemiru Adolescence.

I don’t think I get excited as much as when an Idol Group releases a new single, as much as I do with this group. An Kyouka is growing up to be very fine young woman.CJm5WyhUYAA0_NI7. PASSPO.

The lost 2 members in 2015 due to graduation, Makoto Okunaka at the start of the year and Sako Makita at the end of the year. 2 members that I really like a lot.

Do they ever do a lot of concerts.8e180a6c99d72b913eb9c1c18d0ef225-1024x6826. HKT48.

Not that I didn’t in the past, but lately I’ve checking them out a fair amount times lately. Wow, some of those members have really grown up. Some are just dead gorgeous, will be checking them out a fair amount of times now. This didn’t happen yesterday, I don’t why I didn’t notice this before. Maybe I did I was just too lazy and uninterested or to bothered to notice. I can be like that sometimes.923b48325. SUPER GiRLS.

Sometime this year I was a little worried, my interest in them was probably at an all time low. Thanks, to Rina Miyazaki and maybe a couple of others it’s back to where it should be. They just need to be in the spotlight more, like they used to be. To me it seems like they’re not trying, for it.スパガカレンダー②4. Momoiro Clover Z.

They’re releasing 2 albums in February will definitely get both.306f0ad23. Morning Musume.

On December 31, 2015. Riho Sayashi graduated from the group, which is to bad. She was a cutie.

Next month they will be at Anime Matsuri, in Houston, Texas. It’s not 100%, but it’s looking good that I will be attending it.y4PmLsP2. Cheeky Parade.

I’m not to sure exactly what this is all about but Marin Yamamoto and Mariya Suzuki, will going on a 2 year hiatus from Cheeky Parade. To study abroad in Los Angeles, California. Another member from their sister group “GEM”, Maaya takeda is also going with them. I don’t think a date as been announced when They will be leaving.CXTxHnLU0AArx1W1. AKB48.

My only complain about them is sometimes when I watch them, it’s not like watching AKB48. I hope you know what I mean, Unlike SKE48, NMB48 and HKT48.AKB48 Takamina, Kojiharu and Mayuyu 10 on WPB Magazine 001*Got done on time, at a second to spare.

 


My Favorite J-Pop Idols and J-Pop Artist, July 2015.

July 29, 2015

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.o10031280p24. 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.6737a85b840b375381a8e91264b5639e23. 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. B_jIJQCUYAIqmcy22. Rina Matsuno (Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku).

I like tall girls. She doesn’t really belong here, but I just can’t stop liking her.pro_photo_00921. Kanna Hashimoto (Rev. grom DVL).

Yes, I actually like her alot. And check up on her quite often.oth227076597fbf73e4247e84daf94789f49ce10f812090720. Karin Ogino (Yumemiru Adolescence).

I’m really starting to get annoyed with that cute smile, which she does quite often.CEyQe4OUEAIJuCQ19. Rena Matsui (SKE48).

She’ll be graduating from SKE48 in about a month.Young Animal 2014 No_19-0118. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 / AKB48).man317. Rika Mayama (Shititsu 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.pro_photo_00316. Miyuki Watanabe (NMB48 / AKB48).536804c815.

I find her to be very sexually attractive.6bcf50b3ecaf70feac67db44ba4c3d4d10. Asami Watanabe (Cheeky Parade).

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.CGStY1JUQAEiG0U

9. Kei Jonishi (NMB48).

They don’t get any sexier and hotter, than her.2dee7c0b

8. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46).201410110221414576017. Yukafin Doll (Afilia Saga).

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.CFiQq_AUUAMWhjG6. 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.HkkMFJ45. 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.B9OqzupCYAEDixK4. Ai Negishi (PASSPO).tumblr_noyl5uUtQb1sox61xo1_12803. 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.OK_MG_59702. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48).20150308_2125_0031.

My Top 20 Favorite J-Pop Groups.

20. Tokyo Performance Doll.

As far as I’m concern the perfect J-Pop Girl Idol Group, I think all the members are pretty.maxresdefault19. Dorothy Little Happy.

I don’t know why, sometimes I get them confuse with 9nine.KatV918. Fairies.

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.original17. C-ute.

I don’t think I give them the credit they deserved, I tend to put them down quite abit.wf1j8NY16. 9nine.

I just enjoy this group, I do follow them quite regularly. I always get a little excited when they release something (anything) new, which has been much the last year or so.CBoSXlsUkAEUkwo15. Tokyo Girls’ Style.

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.tuU0QPe14. Babyraids JAPAN.

It seems like they’re not doing as much activities, as before. When it comes to being energetic, few idol groups can match them. That’s just my opinion.CE8lallUkAEA4po

13. Yumemiru Adolescence.

They’re hitting the big time now, took longer than I though. I’m still having trouble finding any updates or current info on them, although it’s not as bad as before.CJm6xoSVAAE70Yk12. SKE48.

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.zcrgrDF11. NMB48.

I think they did to do something very drastic.5qdCL4S10. Nogizaka46.

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.1430996534-d70fe6c75dbc09f80d0e1e344a3439869. 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.img_56641_18. HKT48.

Of all the groups in the AKB48 family, I find them the most fun to watch. They’re so refreshing.img_HKT0627_037. PASSPO.

Seems like they’ve been pretty quiet, this year.img_PASSPO_giveaway_2015_16. SUPER GiRLS.

What’s going on with iDOL Street, it seems like they’re slacking in managing their groups. They don’t seem to know what direction they want to go.ddbf3e1133fc4417f201d7c0ea5506e15. Idoling!!!.

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.

It's an old picture from late 2013, I think. Sorry can't find any current ones that's good.

4. Morning Musume.

They’re still fairly new, they’ve only releases one single so far. I like this current line up.hello_project-5274293. Momoiro Clover Z.

I just love this group, they’re always moving forward. Or atleast they try to.062. Cheeky Parade.

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.CHns9G1VEAAFVwX1. AKB48.

The last couple of years, they’ve been turning me off more than on. But they always keep me interested.4a1bdb0e3503f1b7046243d584347991
