My Favorite Member In The AKB48 Family, November 2017.

November 27, 2017

30. Miru Shiroma (NMB48 – Team N and AKB48 – Team A).

A spot opens up due to Yuria Kizaki graduation, Miru is someone who I’ve considered and wanted to include in my rankings for about a year now. When it came to adding someone new I always went with another member, maybe because I thought they were cuter or seem more fun. I think she’s really hot and sexy, I like her she’s not afraid to show a lot of skin. In fact I think I think she enjoys doing it.

She’ll be center for NMB48 upcoming single “Warota People”, which will be release in about a month. She’s been center before for an NMB48 single “Rashikunai” with Fuuko Yagura.

29. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).28. Yui Oguri (AKB48 – Team 8).

Their are very few members now I enjoy following and watching more than her, which I’ve been doing the last few months. I knew who she was way before, I always though she was really cute. I just never really got into her until recently.

27. Ranze Terada (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).

26. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team N).

The last few months I’ve been noticing and seeing more of her, which makes really happy.

25. Natsumi Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team H Captain).

Have you seen her recently she looks really fine.24. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).

It seems like she’s everywhere now, it’s about time. The only thing missing in her resume is center for a SKE48 single, which may come in January 2018.

23. Akane Takayanagi (SKE48 – Team KII).

In a couple of days November 29th, it’s her Birthday. Happy 26th Birthday in advance, Akane.

22. Rika Nakai (NGT48 – Team NIII).21. Haruka Komiyama (AKB48 – Team 4).20. Haruka Kodama (HKT48 – Team H and AKB48 – Team K).

It doesn’t look like it now, did she gain weight earlier this year. It definitely look like she did, is that the reason she wasn’t doing any bikini photo shoots.

19. Asuka Saito (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).18. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).17. Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).16. Yurina Hirate (Keyakizaka46 – 1st Generation).15. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).

She announced her graduation on November 6th, she’s going to have 2 graduation concerts. First at AKB48 Theater on December 15th, then on December 19th at the SKE48 Theater. Then will have her last handshake event on January 7, 2018.

On November 20th, it was her Birthday. Happy belated 24th Birthday, Suuchan.

14. Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).

A few days ago November 24th, it was her Birthday. Happy belated 18th Birthday, Sakipon.13. Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team B)12. Yui Kojina (HKT48 – Team H).11. Rie Kitahara (NGT48 Captain – Team NIII).10. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H, HKT48 Theater Manager).

On November 25th Sasshi resigns as STU48 Manager also as a member, don’t blame her she’s a busy girl these days.

Almost a week ago November 21st, was her Birthday. Happy belated 25th Birthday, Sasshi.

9. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S Leader and AKB48 – Team 4).

8. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 Team A).

In about a week December 3rd, it’s her Birthday. Happy 22nd Birthday in advance, Annin.7. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team K).6. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).

Had her last handshake event on November 25th, will graduate from AKB48 on December 26th. I feel like I should do something special for her graduation.

Her solo album which I’ve been waiting for years, will finally be release on December 20th.

5. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team KIV Co-Captain and AKB48 – Team A).4. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain).

It seems like she’s been keeping a low profile for quite a time now.

3. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).

She’s been doing a lot of photo shoots lately, and they’re all very good.2. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

1. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NGT48 – Team NIII).

Just to keep you guys up to date before Yukirin had quite a gap on Maiyan, and Maiyan had quite a gap on Meru. Right now those three are all very close

My Top 30 Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, October 2017.

October 27, 2017

30. Yui Oguri (AKB48 – Team 8).

With Ririka Sutou who graduated from NMB48 very late in August, it left a spot open.

This is way long over due, she’s someone who I’ve really like for a long time now. She’s just so cute and sweet.29. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).28. Ranze Tereda (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).27. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team N).26. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).25. Akane Takayanagi (SKE48 – Team KII).24. Natsumi Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team H Captain).23. Rika Nakai (NGT48 – Team NIII).22. Asuka Saito (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).21. Haruka Komiyama (AKB48 – Team 4).20. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).19. Haruka Kodama (HKT48 – Team H and AKB48 – Team K).18. Yurina Hirate (Keyakizaka46 – 1st generation).

I must admit although I check up on Keyakizaka46 a bit, she’s the only member I really know or care about knowing.17. Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).16. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).15. Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).14. Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team B).13. Yui Kojina (HKT48 – Team H).

She was moving up my rankings very quickly since she first appeared here about a year ago, but she’s been in this position for a few months. She actually got as high as number 12, it look like she was heading in the Top 10. I actually thought she would get there, I think she’ll be stucked at this position for a long while. Maybe moved down a position or 2.12 Rie Kitahara (NGT48 Captain – Team NIII).

Sometime in Spring 2018, will be a sad day for me. She’s suppose to graduated around that time.

I may have mention this here before, I can’t remember. If I did I stand by it “I think she as the most sex appeal in the AKB48 family”, I’m only saying this cause it’s Kitarie. At one time I really though she did, actually I still do.11. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H, HKT48 Theater Manager and STU48 Manager).10. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S Leader and AKB48 – Team 4).9. Yuria Kizaki (AKB48 – Team B).

Since she graduated from AKB48 at the end of August, I’ll include her in my rankings one last time. I wish her ” The Best Of Luck”.

I sure will miss this little sexpot.Because she’s so hot, I’ll add another picture. A first here I think, I think this the first time I gave a member more than solo one picture.8. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).7. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team K).6. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team KIV Co-Captain and AKB48 – Team A).5. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).4. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain).3. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).2. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizka46 – 1st Generation).1. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NGT48 – Team NIII).


AKB48 Group Unit Janken (Paper, Scissors & Rock) Tournament 2017.

October 1, 2017

This was held on September 24th, at Nippon Gaishi Hall, Nagoya, Japan. I’m a week late, at that time I just got back from a long vacation and didn’t have the time to this this. Til now.

My Top 30 Favorite Members In The AKB48, September 2017.

September 30, 2017

30. Ririka Sutou, NMB48 (Team N).

She graduated last month on August 30th, since it was at the end of the month. I’ll rank her this month. I like her, I’ll miss her, I wish her “The Best Of Luck”.

I know a lot of fans are pissed off about her scandal, no one needed to know. Blamed the Japanese tabloids, she’s not the first idol and won’t be the last idol to go out like this. As for her breaking the rules and not being very idol like or garbage like that, don’t tell me your that naïve about the J-Pop Idol world. She got caught, blamed the Japanese tabloids. Damned those Japanese tabloids.

I kinda wish I was Japanese Idol fan born and raised in Japan, then maybe I have better understanding of this.29. Ranze Terada (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).

About a week ago, Sepember 23rd was her birthday. Happy belated 19th birthday, Ranran (that’s a funny, if not cute nickname).28. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

27. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team N).

The last few months I’ve been seeing and hearing about her quite a bit, or at least the most it’s been in about 2 or 3 years. This makes me happy, she makes me happy.26. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).

It’s about time, she’s finally starting to get treated in SKE48 the way she deserves. She shouldn’t be second fiddle to anyone, and I’m not just talking about Ryoha Kitagawa (But, mainly).

A couple of weeks ago, on September 15th. It was her 21st birthday, happy belated birthday. Nao.25. Akane Takayanagi (SKE48 – Team KII).24. Rika Nakai (NGT48 – Team NIII).23. Asuka Saito (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

She’ll be center for Nogizaka46 upcoming single, along with Nanase Nishino.22. Natsumi Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team H Captain).21. Haruka Komiyama (AKb48 – Team 4).

I think my infatuation with her has ended, I still think she’s really cute and sexy.

September 12th, it was her birthday. Happy belated 19th birthday, Komiharu.20. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

The last couple of weeks, I’ve been really taking an interest in her for some reason. Just as much if not more than Asuka Saito, I think it will be short lived. Talking about Asuka Saito, her and Ashurin will be center for Nogizaka46 upcoming single.19. Yurina Hirate (Keyakizaka46 – 1st Generation).

It just might be me, I think they’re trying to give her some sex appeal or trying to do something with her. You either have sex appeal or you don’t, I don’t think she has it. I’m not saying I don’t find her attractive, because I do find her very, very attractive. Just not in a sexually kind of way.18. Haruka Kodama (HKT48 Team H and AKB48 – Team K).

September 19th, it was her birthday. Happy belated 21st birthday, Haruppi. Wow, time does really by.17. Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).

On October 3rd, it’ll be her birthday. Happy 20th birthday in advance, Juri. Talking about time flying, I can still remember when she was only 14 years old.16. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).15. Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).14. Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team B).13. Yui Kojina (HKT48 – Team H).

She has beautiful hair, I may have mention this before I can’t remember. I rank it up there with Anna Iriyama hair.12. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S Leader and AKB48 – Team 4).

On October 9th, it will be her birthday. Happy 19th birthday in advance, Ryoha.11. Rie Kitahara (NGT48 Captain – Team NII).

Although she won’t be graduating from NGT48 til spring next year, I’m feeling a little depress about her graduating. I was just thinking about her time in AKB48, I actually forgot that she was also a SKE48 concurrent member for a time.10. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H, HKT48 Theater Manager and STU48 Manager).

I just love Sasshi, I can’t hate her. Even if I wanted to.9. Yuria Kizaki (AKB48 – Team B Captain).

She did her SKE48 Graduation Theater Performance on September 28th, and will do her AKB48 Graduation Theater Performance today September 30th. I need to watch that, where ?. Will start in a couple of hours, by the time I get this post done it will be a lot less. They just announced both of those dates about a couple of weeks ago, I was on vacation for the 1st 3 weeks of September. so I didn’t find out about this til very recently.

8. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).7. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team K).6. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team KIV Co-Captain and AKB48 – Team A).5. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).

4. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain).3. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).

She’s been looking very good lately.2. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).1. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NGT48 – Team NII).

I’m still not sure when she’s graduating from AKB48, I’ve read somewhere that it will be September. That’s next month, it wasn’t official so I don’t really know. Anyways, she had her last handshake event on August 13th.8. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).7. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team K).6. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team KIV Co-Captain and AKB48 – Team A).5. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N).

Ever since she started to grow her hair long again, I’ve been really taking an interest and been really paying attention to her. I like her so much better with long hair, I hope she keeps it this way. Yes, my interest in her right now is very high.4. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).

It seems like she announced graduation a long, long time ago. But, it was only a little more than 2 months ago.3. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).

She been getting some photo shoots lately, one in particular that looks really good. I just got to get.2. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).
