My Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, May 2017.

May 22, 2017

Since they graduated in latter half of last month, I’ve decide to include Haruna Kojima and Kei Jonishi this month. This will be the last for both of them in this ranking.

30. Rika Nakai (NGT48 – Team NIII).

With Aika Oota graduation last month a spot open up, so comes Rika Nakai NGT48 center. I’ve been following her for quite a while now I think she’s really cute, right now not including Yuki Kashiwagi and Rie Kitahara she’s the only member in NGT48 I find sexual appealing. I was surprise to find out how old she really was, I thought she was a lot younger. I also like her cause she’s not afraid to show a lot of skin.29. Ranze Terada (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).28. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).

Her hair is long again, she cut it kinda short last year. I like better with long hair.27. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team N).26. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).25. Yurina Hirate (Keyakizaka46 – 1st Generation).

I’ve always thought she was cute, but I really didn’t start really getting into her till a few months ago. I honestly didn’t think it was going to last this long, I just find her really intriguing. I’m really attractive to her in a weird kind of way, that I find really hard to understand.24. Akane Takayanagi (SKE48 – Team KII).23. Haruka Komiyama (AKB48 – Team 4).

I think she’s starting to look a bit like Rena Kato.22. Natsumi Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team H Captain).21. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).20. Juri Takahasi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).19. Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).18. Haruka Kodama (HKT48 – Team K and AKB48 – Team K).17. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).16. Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team B).15. Yui Kojima (HKT48 – Team H).14. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 Leader – Team S and AKB48 – Team 4).

Leader, when did she become leader of SKE48 not sure what that means. I can’t picture it, from the time she join SKE48 it seems like she’s getting special privileges.

Anyways she’s developing into one hot sex pot.

OK, I did little search after I wrote this, she’s not the leader of SKE48. But SKE48 Teams S new leader, I still can’t picture it. She seems shy and quiet.

13. Rie Kitahara (NGT48 Captain – Team NIII).12. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H and HKT48 Theater Manger and also STU48 Manager).11. Yuria Kizaki (AKB48 – Team B Captain).

Announced her graduation last month, when she’ll actually graduated no date yet.10. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team K).

9. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).8. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N).7. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team H Co-Captain and AKB48 – Team A).6. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).5. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).4. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

Looking like Mayu in the picture below, she really does look like Mayu.

3. Kei Jonishi (NMB48 – Team N).

She graduated from NMB48 last month on April 18th, but I decide to include her this month for the last time. I just bought and watch her DVD, it was pretty good.2. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NGT48 – Team NIII).

She’ll have to wait one more month.1. Haruna Kojima (AKB48 – Team A).

She’s been number one every month since I started doing this, this will be her last month at number one. That’s a total of 66 months (76 months if you include my old blog).


My Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, April 2017.

April 30, 2017

A very sad month as 3 members in my Top 11 have graduated, 2 of them in the Top 3. A member ranked kinda high as announced her graduation.

30. Ranze Terada (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).29. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).28. Yurina Hirate (Keyakizaka46 – 1st Generation).

She’s getting tall.27. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team N).26. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).25. Akane Takayanagi (SKE48 – Team KII).24. Haruka Komiyama (AKB48 – Team 4).23. Natsumi Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team H Captain).

22. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).21. Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).20. Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).19. Haruka Kodama (HKT48 – Team H and AKB48 – Team K).18. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).17. Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team B).16. Yui Kojina (HKT48 – Team H).15. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S and AKB48 – Team 4).

I think she’s becoming more confident and comfortable at being or looking sexy, not that she is or tries to be.14. Rie Kitahara (NGT48 Captain – Team NIII).

Her group NGT48 release their 1st single “Seishun Dokei”, earlier this month. It’s pretty good, I like it.13. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H and HKT48 Manager).

She’s also the manager and a member of AKB48 newest sister group “STU48”, where their theater is located on a cruise ship. Nana Okada is also a member of this group and also the captain of the group. I always wanted to take a cruise in Japan, have to mention this to one of my friend. Maybe next year.

This is why I Love Sasshi.12. Yuria Kizaki (AKB48 – Team B Captain).

She has announced her graduation earlier this month on April 12th.11. Aika Oota (HKT48 – Team KIV (was) Captain).

She graduated from HKT48 on April 10th, although I like her a lot and enjoyed following her. I really found her kinda hard to follow the last year maybe 2, she really brings fond memories in my early days as a AKB48 fan. Yeah, her and Mayu.

I wish her “The Best Of Luck”.10. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team K).9. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).

I ordered her first photo book a while back, still need to pick it up. Will do it tomorrow, can’t wait to get it. She really turns me on.8. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain).7. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – KIV Co-Captain and AKB48 – Team A).6. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).5. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).

Just bought a copy of a Japanese magazine “Manga Action”, it had her on the cover.4. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Genration).

3. Kei Jonishi (NMB48 – Team N).

She graduated from NMB48 on April 18th, I wonder what she’ll be doing. Whatever it is I will support it. And wish her “The Best Of Luck”.

Have I mention how much I love her latest photo book, I really did love it.2. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NGT48 – Team NIII).1. Haruna Kojima (AKB48 – Team A).

The Undisputed number one favorite member of all time graduated from AKB48 on April 19th, on her 29th Birthday. I know I should be doing some kind of tribute, but I’m not really good at that kind of thing. I wish her the ” Best of Luck”. Will continue to follow and support her, I will guarantee that.

With her graduation Minami Minegishi remains the only original member.

I still her remember the first time I saw her, although at the time I didn’t know who she was and who AKB48 where. I was just getting into J-Pop at the time.

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

March 28, 2017

30. Ranze Terada (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).29. Yurina Hirate (Keyakizaka46 – 1st Generation).

With Nogizaka46 Nanami Hashimoto graduation from the group last month, it opens up a spot. She was the only one that really came to mind, she’s the first Keyakizaka46 member to ranked here. She’s Keyakizaka46 center, I’ve been checking her out quite a bit the last month or two. I really do like her she seems so sweet and fresh, very recently I’ve just notice she kinda looks like and reminds me of former AKB48 member Haruka Shimazaki.28. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).27. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team N).26. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).25. Akane Takayanagi (SKE48 – Team KII).24. Haruka Komiyama (AKB48 – Team 4).23. Natsumi Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team H Captain).22. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).21. Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).

I still remember it very well it was 5 years ago, when I first saw her. When AKB48 (or least 16 members) did a concert in Washington, D.C.20. Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).19. Haruka Kodama (HKT48 – Team H and AKB48 – Team K).18. Yui Kojina (HKT48 – Team H).17. Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team B).16. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).15. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S and AKB48 – Team 4).14. Rie Kitahara (NGT48 Captain – Team NIII).13. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H and HKT48 Theater Manager).12. Yuria Kizaki (AKB48 – Team B Captain).11. Aika Oota (HKT48 – Team KIV Captain).

She’ll be graduating from the group next month on April 10th.10. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team K).

I had a dream about her not that long ago, In the dream I was just chasing her around. I had this magazine with her on the cover, I wanted to autograph it.9. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).

I pre-ordered her 1st Photo Book “Utsukushii Tsumi” ealier this month, I think it’s suppose to be release around this time, I can’t wait to get it.

More like yesterday, it was 5 years ago. That I really started to notice and really got to liking her, after seeing her in Washington, D.C.8. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team KIV Co Captain and AKB48 – Team A).

March 19th was her Birthday. Happy belated 19th Birthday, Sakura.7. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain).6. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).

A couple of days ago March 26th, was her Birthday. Happy belated 23rd Birthday, Mayuyu.5. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).4. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).3. Kei Jonishi (NMB48 – Team N).

I bought her 2nd Photo Book “21K”, which was release last month. I have to say this the best $25 ( or whatever the cost was), I ever spent on anything. After looking at it, it’s probably my favorite Photo Book that I bought.

She’ll be graduating from NMB48 on April 10th, is that the same date that Lovetan is graduating from HKT48.

Earlier this month on March 18th, was her Birthday. Happy belated 22nd Birthday, Keicchi.2. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NGT48 – Team NIII).1. Haruna Kojima (AKB48 – Team ).

She’s graduating from AKB48 on April 19th, I don’t know how I’m feeling now. Definitely not happy.

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

February 28, 2017

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

With Haruka Shimazaki graduation late in December of last year, it opens a spot. So enter Ranze Terada she’s someone I’ve like her for a while now, she has come close to ranking here a couple of times before (Before I change my mind in the last minute). I first saw her early last year about the same time keyakizaka46 release their 1st single, at first I thought she was a Keyakizaka46 member. I was hoping she was, then I would have been checking out Keyakizaka46 a lot more than I was.

In Nogizaka46 up coming single she’ll be a senbatsu member, the first time she’s been a senbatsu for an Nogizaka46 single.9526af67452eb23dce15478859d4179c29. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).spa_21062016_voz48_0728. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team N).

I’ve said this before, because I feel it is so I’ll say it again. She really has the best body in the entire AKB48 family, I’m so mesmerize by her body I sometimes forget how pretty her face is. I’m a hair guy and I just love her hair, almost as much as I love Anna Iriyama hair.

I was at the Toronto Auto Show on Sunday, and I saw this girl that look like her. But that’s another story.9597755557d07c3cf2e1e56d66bb74b119.

She graduated from Nogizaka46 about a week ago, on her birthday. She’s the 1st significant member in the group to graduate, I wish her the “Best of Luck”.

February 20th, was her birthday. Happy belated 24th birthday, Nanamin.416. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).315. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S and AKB48 – Team 4).

I never realise how tall she was, she’s not really that tall. A little taller than I thought.ca895028

She announced her graduation last month, her graduation concert will be on April 10th. As far as I’m concern she graduated when she got transferred to HKT48, if you know what I mean.culae7zusaaul1s10.
