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……

My Top 30 Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, November 2014.

November 10, 2014

It was about a month ago that I just saw Cheeky Parade in New York City, seems like it was just yesterday. Anyways this post is about my favorite AKB48 ranking.

30. Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team 4).

With Haruka Katayama graduation in late September, it left a spot open here. 2 serious candidates I considered, I decided to go with Renacchi. For no particular reason, it was very close between the 2 of them. It could have went either way, I just felt like choosing her.

She’s been ranked here several times before, the last time being August 2012. It was that long ago I had to check, she was a cutie back then. Has she ever grown up since then, she’s looking hot and sexy now. Actually it’s been a while now, when I check up on her earlier this year. Which was The the first time in long time, since I check up on her. I didn’t recognize her. Wow, has she ever change.XMCjPHm29. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

I’m a little surprise she really didn’t get any kind of punishment for fer scandal, then again maybe not. Rena Matsui helps alot, but Nogizaka46 popularity depth chart is not really that deep. In my opinion after the Top 5 or 6, I think it goes way down. I don’t know what that has to do with anything, just something to think about.tumblr_n8hz7oFMkp1qki7kio2_128028.

She won’t be center for HKT48 4th single “Hikaeme I Love You!”, which will be released on September 24th. I wonder if it has something to do with her not ranking very high, in the latest AKB48 Senbatsu General Election. Since the 3 highest ranking HKT48 members in the election are main features on the CD Cover.138334415. Rie Kitahara (AKB48 – Team K Co-Captain).11 - 114.

My Favorite J-Pop Idols and J-Pop Artist, August 2014.

August 20, 2014

I do this twice a year in January and July, because I went on holidays in July for 2 weeks. I decided to do this in August, instead.

My Top 25 Favorite J-Pop Idols, Singers, or whatever else.

25. Masaki Sato (Morning Musume).

I just think she’s super cute.44atMlJb05U1q9iTuHA6dsrCJpQ24. Karin Ogino (Yumemiru Adolescence).

Yumemiru Adolescence Leader, I think she would make a good travel companion. I usually do 3 or more kinda long distance driving a year, if I could choose 1 J-Pop Idol to take along to keep me company. Don’t ask why, I would choose her.4847046250_09_MAIN__SCRMZZZZZZ_23. Yuna Sekine (Cheeky Parade).

I’ve been really into her and checking her out quite abit, during the last month or so. A real cutie.tumblr_n4sgn7n3L51rld6ydo1_1280

22. Nao Sakura (Team Syachihoko).

A cutie, that’s alot of fun to watch.92c1b001e564153038a409301998529a21. Honoka Akimoto (Team Syachihoko).

Team Syachihoko’s Leader. I like her, I find her very funny.news_large_014_3793

20. Asami Watanabe (Cheeky Parade).

As for following her it’s been on and off and on again, I was really into her early last year. Then I kinda lost interest in her, now I’m back again to being really interested in her.1061074_65019. Reina Washino (Flower / E-Girls).

She’s someone who I’ve admired for a long time (Ok. Almost 2 years, I don’t know if that’s a long), she’s just absolutely beautiful. I love her sweet and cute singing voice. As far as singing voices goes, that I like listening to. She ranks at the top.tumblr_mzrov4yXMY1s0326ro1_r3_1280

18. Rina Matsuno (Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku).

I like tall girls, she’s really tall compared to most J-Pop Idols.sg6_treca0517. Rika Mayama (Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku).

She’s the Leader of Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku. Whenever I’m watching her, for some reason I just get hypnotize by her.news_xlarge_DSC_650916. Miyuki Watanabe (NMB48 / SKE48).

She really has a nice ass.ivRIQd5hXcsGV15. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 / AKB48).

If you haven’t yet, you should check her out playing the guitar. She’s not bad.sUwvu4p14. Kei Jonishi (NMB48).

I think she’s the kind of girl, I would like as a girlfriend. I’ve said that to few J-Pop Idols before, I really do like her.Brb78fDCYAAF4Zy13. Miki Shimomura (Fairies).

Here’s someone I’ve like alot since I first heard of Fairies sometime in 2012, she’s someone who I’ve considered and wanted to include in this ranking before. Why I didn’t until now, I really don’t know. BoucwAyIIAA7j9t12. Haruna Iikubo (Morning Musume).

I don’t know why, when I see her. I just start to laugh, I mean that in a good way.blog2C20Iikubo20Haruna-457900-6864411. Kanako Momota (Momoiro Clover Z).

The Leader of Momoiro Clover Z. I think she has cutest dimples, Sorry Lovetan.news_xlarge_ADS_545510. Rena Matsui (SKE48/Nogizaka46).

I feel a little awkward when I see her with Nogizaka46, it’s almost like she’s too good for them. I just saw her profile picture270e07ecb15600f5c97b52ec7b93ad0867d9aadd_6_788246534_161_large, I think she looks really nice (Nogizaka46 Like). She doesn’t seem to happy in the picture.tumblr_n0eh10UniP1qeh2m0o1_12809. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48).

I’ve mention this show before “Sailor Zombie”, for those who haven’t check it. You got to check it out, I think it’s really good and fun to watch. Mayu is in it.068. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46).

I wasn’t planning on posting this on her Birthday, since I did. Happy 22nd Birthday, Maiyan.067. Seran Mizorogi (Cheeky Parade).

My J-Pop Idol girlfriend.

Cheeky Parade will be doing a concert in New York City, in October this year. I’m going, I will talk about it more later. I can’t wait, I’m really looking forward to this.tumblr_n4gpgiefiS1rld6ydo3_12806. Yukafin Doll (Afilia Saga).

She’s just so hot and sexy.BtoonD-CIAE5qs85. Ai Negishi (PASSPO).

PASSPO Captain. I’m losing abit of interest in PASSPO, it just seems like they keep doing the same. I’m definitely not losing interest in this lovely creature.LUV_FO~14. Hitomi Arai (Tokyo Girls’ Style).

I met her last month when I went to the J-Pop Summit Festival in San Francisco, she was everthing I imagine her to be. She looks exactly like she does in pictures and videos if not, then better. At the Meet and Greet there I spent maybe a minute or two with “Tokyo Girls Style”, I was very excited and nervous all at the same time. I like the other members, but I just couldn’t take my eyes off her. I probably would rank that maybe in my top 10 of my most memorable moments in my life (That’s a big maybe), Either way that was one of the greatest feeling I’ve ever had.tgs5tsu0443.

My Top 20 J-Pop Idol Groups.

20. Fairies.

I like them a mature style, but cute group.BuBBVAmCUAAqamD19. Yumemiru Adolescence.

They’re all pretty or cute, or both. Especially their leader Karin Ogino, who I have crush on right now. As for the music I love everything they have released, their next single “Shoumei Teenager”. Will be released on September 9th, which is my Birthday. I will get as a present to myself.0_128387018. Babyraids.

For almost a year now I’ve been really into this group, I’m always checking on them. Too see what their up to, I really enjoy watching them.girlsnews-15581216970-img20140603babyraids317. Team Syachihoko.

I find them unpredictable, the only thing predictable about them is I think their kinda weird. I mean that in a good way, alot fun to watch I always get a good laugh from them.

16. 9nine.

Good Songs, members are kinda cute. Really nothing to hate about them.9nine『With-You-With-Me』A写(smallサイズヨリ確)15. C-ute.

As much as I try I just can’t hate this group, I don’t even know why I’m trying. Really nothing to hate about them. I really enjoy watching their videos.C ute, Hagiwara Mai, Nakajima Saki, Okai Chisato, Suzuki Airi, Yajima Maimi-43971414. SKE48.

To me they just don’t seem as fun as before, they’ve had alot members who have graduated during the last year or 2. Some of the new members are pretty cute, I guess I just got to warm up to them.ffe464aa13. NMB48.

I just bougth their album, which was released last week. It’s very good.c36644ec12. Nogizaka46.

I didn’t like the last 2 singles they’ve released, compared to their previous ones. I still like the group alot.tumblr_n4j4425lEP1tw2uh9o3_128011. Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku.

They’ve drop in my rankings since the last time I did this, mainly because a couple members I like graduated from the group earlier in April. Especially Hirono Suzuki who I like alot, and would have ranked in my Favorite J-Pop Idols.maxresdefault10. HKT48.

I didn’t really follow them at first, I’ve been kinda following them abit since March or April of ths year, Thanks to Meru Tashima.IMG_16639. Cheeky Parade.

They’re coming to New York City in October, to do a concert at Times Square. I’m definitely going, I even got a friend to come with me. Which isn’t easy for me to do on something like this, Oh Yes, I can’t wait to see them. This is going to be very exciting, Seran Mizorogi Mmmm….BtD3TgkCMAAxGeS8. PASSPO.

They’re not releasing as much stuff as last year, which is a good thing. Makes me look forward more, to each release.original7. Idoling!!!.

I think all the members are really pretty, one of the very few Idol groups that never dissappoint me.412148a61268a85daf2d95bb986d9ef16. SUPER GiRLS.

They need a change, I mean that in a good way. They’re starting to become predictable, what else is new in the J-Pop Idol world.tumblr_n4zniyNZDN1rld6ydo9_12805. Morning Musume.

I’m not following them anywhere as much as I once was, I still follow them alot more than most Idol groups. I’m facing a dilemma as Morning Musume will be doing a concert in New York City, in October of this year. A week before Cheeky Parade concert at Times Square, Likely I can only go to one, Hey New York City is a 9 hour drive from where I am. I choose Cheeky Parade, mainly because it’s on a long weekend in Canada. I could go to both, I’m considering it. I really do wanna see Morning Musume in concert.rvgJKnT4. Momoiro Clover Z.

Another Idol group I’m starting to find predictable, but they’re alot of fun and alot of fun to watch.6cc218fbgw1egcqma854qj20v618gas33. Tokyo Girls’ Style.

On previous post I’ve said I didn’t like their music and they were boring, since meeting them and watching them perform. I’ve had a change in opinion, they’re really get into their performance which gets me into it also. At Meet and Greet they were alot fun to be with, they were funny to. Ok they have more than a few songs I don’t like, but they also have alot of songs that I like. Like “Wonderful Smile”, which I’ve been listening to alot during the last month.

I’m probably ranking them a little high here, it’s probably because I’m still on a high from meeting them.rVkX39F2. Berryz Koubou.

It was announced earlier this month, that they will going on indefinite hiatus starting in Spring 2015. Which I guess is a way of saying they’re disbanding them, without causing panic. I hope that’s not the case. Considering the ages of the members and how long they’ve been around, that news doesn’t sound good.Hello_Project-4717581. AKB48.

Ever since Acchan graduated from AKB48 in August 2012, which you could say was the beginning of a very slow decline in my interest in AKB48. Anyways it reach an all time low in February of this year, not just AKB48 but J-Pop in general. At the time it just seem like I’ve seen everything that need to be seen, and heard everything that needed to be heard. I was really into KPop at this time, I’ve actually started getting into Kpop the same time I started getting into Jpop (Just not as much as JPop, But that’s all another Story). I was Checking out alot of Kpop stuff, “Crayon pop” in particular. It all started with Peach Girl “Fox Fur Muffler”, and it just rolled from there. This lasted for almost 2 months. Thanks to HKT48 and Meru Tashima, I started to get back into AKB48 and J-Pop and my interest in that as been and still is growing since that time. The fact that AKB48 6th Senbatsu General Election was coming up, help alot too. I would say this is most I’ve been interested in AKB48 since Acchan graduation, and it’s still rising. It also helps that I’ve finally accepted all the changes that happens in the world of AKB48 and the new members.a9a59f96-705f-4fbb-9fb2-b7ef54ad3f10

 


My Top 30 Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, August 2014.

August 7, 2014

For this month comments I’ll just write about when I first heard of them or notice them, or when I first like them.

30. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

When I first saw a group picture of Nogizaka46 it was either very early in 2012 or very late in 2011, she was one of the first member I noticed. I just remember how much I love her hair.tumblr_n8hz7oFMkp1qki7kio6_128029. Hatuka Katayama (AKB48 – Team A).

It was around April 2011, give or take a month. Their was this one person that talk about her alot, so decide to check her out. I found her kinda cute.20 - 128. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team 4).

I first heard of her almost a year ago, for some reason I was looking through AKB48 Research Student. When I came to her, I though she was cute. So I decide to do some searches on her, since then I been a fan of hers. And have been following her quite closely since.14052903_0627. Haruka Nakagawa (JKT48).

I noticed her very really on, it was probably from “Valentine Kiss” by Watarirouka Hashiritai 7.12825868344_32de84b8c6_o26. Minami Takahashi (AKB48 – Team A Captain and General Manager of The 48 Groups.

Right from the beginning, I remember watching AKB48 video “Lucky Seven”. It was the first AKB48 video I watch, when I saw her I was trying figure if it was her or Yuko. Back then to me they both look alike, it took me a couple of weeks to tell the difference between the two.Minami230025. Rina Hirata (AKB48 – Team B).

It was late March 2012, in Washington, D.C. During a AKB48 concert, she’s the one I remember the most from that concert.7eec5f3b24. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Co Captain Team HIV and AKB48 – Team A).

I can’t remember it may have been some time last year, until earlier this year I didn’t really follow HKT48. I just remember seeing a picture of her, and she was really cute. So I just have to check this girl out. I actually remember her from the AKB48 4th General Election (2012), she was the only HKT48 member to rank. Back then HKT48 was still new and didn’t release anything yet.005uwIjkjw1ehjl2pxmbej30dc0hs76223. Nanami Hashimoto (Nogizaka46).

I really took notice of her around the summer 2013, their was this article on her. I just fell in Love with her.http://www.b-idol.com/bbs1/22. Shihori Suzuki (AKB48 – Team K).

It was May 2011, she was promoted to Team B. I though she was really cute, I’ve been follwing herr since then.19 - 121. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team BII).

I notice her very early on almost from the beginning maybe not within the 1st month, but within the 2nd month when I first heard of AKB48. I just remember she was so funny and alot of fun to watch, when it comes to watching them. She’s one of the few members that really entertain me.Myojo magazine 201404

20. Minami Minegishi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).

Almost right from the beginning, I just though she had that unique kinda cute look. Which I still think she does.ca7bbefa19. Aki Takajo (AKB48 – Team B).

Almost from the beginning, she was someone that I was attracted to for no apparent reason. And is still the case even now.French Kiss Natsu no Mermaid on Young Champion Magazine 003

18. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).

I really didn’t start following HKT48 kinda almost on a regular basis til earlier this year. Back in March 2013 I didn’t really follow HKT48, which was also the month they released ther 1st single “Suki! Suki! Slip!”. I just remember her being center and I’m like who’s this where did she come from, I though Haurka Kodama was center. Anyway’s early this year I’ve become a big fan of hers, I’m actually checking her out alot.jGK4l2P17. Yukiko Kinoshita (SKE48 – Team KII).

I think it was around March or April 2011, I was watching an AKB48 concert video. When I saw her I just though she was the sexiest and most beautiful thing, I’ve ever seen. I just had to find out who she was it took a couple of days, cause I thought she was an AKB48 member. It was also around this time that I stared to check out SKE48 every now and then, she is really the one that made think that SKE 48 is worth checking and maybe following.28 - 116. Asuka Kuramochi (AKB48 – Team B Captain).

I can’t really remember all I know is I didn’t really pay any attention or cared too much about her at first. It wasn’t until French Kiss was about to release “Kakkowarui I Love You!”, in May 2011. That’s when I really started to take notice of her, did I ever.Image000415. Rie Kitahara (AKB48 – Team K Co-Captain).

I think I first notice her maybe around February of 2011, the funny thing is everytime I saw her I though it was Sasshi. Sometimes when I saw Sasshi I though it was her, I think it was like this for about 2 months. I really had a hard time telling the difference between the 2 for the longest time.tumblr_n39g6r1d971r4rq6lo5_128014. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H, HKT48 Theater Manager).

When I first started to get into AKB48 her and Yui Yokoyama were the most push member, she’s so funny and alot of fun. It was hard not to noticed and like her, I guess I just basically join the Sasshi bandwagon.13120201_z_1913. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).

I can’t really remember when I notice her, I just remember seeing her alot during AKB48 promotion of the single “Everyday, Katyusha”. She was involve in alot appearance and performance in the promotion of that single.AKB48 Sumire Sato Sweet and Bitter on Young Magazine 00112. Haruka Shimazaki (AKB48 – Team A).

I can’t remember when I first heard of her, it was around June or July 2012. That I started to really like her and follow her.473c0def11. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).

I notice and started to like her when I saw AKB48 in concert in Washington, DC., in March 2012. I just though she was so beautiful, that’s when I notice how lovely her hair was. I actually knew who she was even way before that concert, I just wasn’t interested in her. I though she was kinda weird looking.tumblr_n40vf4bDxR1qki7kio3_128010. Rina Kawaei (AKB48 – Team A).

She was also at the Washington, DC., concert. I don’t remember anything about her during the performance, mainly because I didn’t know who she was. I’ll never forget when I was waiting for them to leave the theater, I was standing beside the door of the bus they were to get on. I got a great view of everyone you couldn’t believe how close I was to them, anyways when Ricchan was coming to get on the bus. I was saying to myself this the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen, it was love at first sight. That was a feeling I’ll never forget, I have to say that feeling was one the greatest feeling I’ve ever felt in my life. Very few if any could top that feeling I had that night.0109. Aika Oota (HKT48 – Team KIV Captain).

It had to be Valentine Kiss (Watarirouka Hashiritai 7).01 - 18. Miyuki Watanabe (NMB48 – Team BII and SKE48 – Team S).

It was probably March 2011, she was the first NMB48 I ever knew. At the time she was the NMB48 member everyone was talking about, I didn’t like her at first.13342907. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain and AKB48 – Team K).

When I saw AKB48 video “Everyday, Katyusha” for the first time. When I saw her in the video it was you could say “Love at first sight”. I really do like her alot better with long hair.sayaka_animal4_36. Kei Jonishi (NMB48 – Team N Co-Captain).

I think it was the released of NMB48 1st single or maybe it was the 2nd, I can’t remember now. I saw this picture of her it had something to do with promoting the single, I just remember seeing how hot she look,  I just have find out who this girl is.BOMB201311_0235. Rena Matsui (SKE48 – Team E and Nogizaka46).

Basically from the beginning after Lucky Seven, Heavy Rotation was the 2nd AKB48 video I saw.

On July 27th, it was her Birthday. Happy Belated 23rd Birthday, Rena.

13343104. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).

Right from the start although I really hated her in beginning, in fact she’s the only AKB48 that I really hated. I just though she was really weird and funny looking, the hate lasted for about 2 months.073. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46).

I really don’t know. I first heard of her way before this, I remember coming home in August 2012, from a long holiday. And I was checking her out alot, almost on a daily basis which seem like for a long peroid of time.

In about 2 weeks on August 20th, it’s her Birthday. Happy 22nd Birthday in Davance, Maiyan.tumblr_mubrz8cTZo1qki7kio2_12802. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NMB48 – Team N).

When it came to noticing her I was very slow, I remember seeing this one picture of her. I was like how come I didn’t notice her before. I remember when I started searching for her, she had alot of good pictures. Mmm……WOW.tor_756982047_21. Haruna Kojima (AKB48 – Team A).

I actually saw her even before I knew who AKB48 were, at the time I just didn’t know it. I was searching on some JPop stuff I remember seeing the single cover of AKB48 “Chance no Junban (Type A)”, which was AKB48 lastest single at the time. Yeah at the time I didn’t know who AKB48 was. I remember one member on the the cover in particular, on how beautiful she was. I actually saved that picture, and I remember looking at it alot mainly because of her. I would later find out oooh, that’s Haruna Kojima.YgSAHN


My Top 30 Favorite Member In The AKB48 Family, July 2014.

July 6, 2014

30. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team 4).

With Yuko Oshima graduation from AKB48 last month June 9th, it left a spot open. A few candidates for that position. I finally decide to go with cute little Mion, I’ve actually seriously considered including her in my favorite rankings before. On more than a few occasions, just to put someone else in the last minute. I’ve been following her quite closely, since I first heard of her. About 10 months ago.

I've never realize her boobs were this big, or she had any.

I never realize her boobs were this big, or she had any.

29. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka 46 – 1st Generation).a45e842428. Haruka Katayama (AKB48 – Team).

She’ll be graduating from AKB48, in a couple of months. Late September, I Believe.26 - 127. Haruka Nakagazwa (JKT48).

She’s been dropping in my rankings the last year or so, It’s because she’s in JKT48. That shouldn’t matter, it just that I don’t follow JKT48 anywhere as much as AKB48. So I don’t really get to see her that much, not that AKB48 was showing her alot. They weren’t.Haruka-JKT4826. Minami Takahashi (AKB48 – Team A Captain and General Manager of The AKB48 Groups).27 - 125. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team KIV Co-Captain and AKB48 Team A).

I still can’t get over how high she ranked in AKB48 6th Senbatsu General Election, which was almost a month ago. 0f743a8724. Nanami Hashimoto (Nogizaka 46 – 1st Generation).aoHZB7Q23. Rina Hirata (AKB48 – Team B).

The girl from Arizona, talking about Arizona. I will be making my annual USA road trip, and will be spending a few days in Arizona. Also staying a few days in San Francisco to attend the J-Pop Summit Festival, so I can see “Tokyo Girls’ Style” Hitomi Arai in particular. I’m actually really excited and looking forward on meeting and watching all of them perform, I’ve already bought my “Meet and Greet” Ticket 2 of them for Saturday and Sunday. I’ll do post on it.

In about a week July 16th, it’s her Birthday. Happy Sweet 16th Birthday, Hillary, In advance.7c93015322. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).

I’ve been watching alot of her videos lately, not that I wasn’t before. More than usually lately, I just love watching and listening to her talk. She’s always happy and has a smile on her face, almost always. Whenever I’m down I just watch one of her videos, and I feel better. Actually that’s not true, I’m almost never down. I’m not a serious guy. If I should ever feel sad and down I should give that a try, It’ll probably work. Everytime I watch her and listen to her talk, it always brings a smile to my face.tumblr_n294bk1rif1qlftfdo1_128021. Shihori Suzuki (AKB48 – Team K).18 - 120. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team BII).

Whenever I see her name, or see a picture of her. I always start to laugh. I don’t know why. She’s as funny as she is cute.14032401_0219. Aki Takajo (AKB48 – Team B).image

18. Minami Minegishi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).

On June 20th she was diagnosed with kidney cyst. So she won’t be doing any activities or whatever else, for an indefinite period of time. She’s receiving treatment and resting. Wishing her The Best of Luck, on a full recovery.4fb0e373

17. Asuka Kuramochi (AKB48 Team B Captain).http://www.b-idol.com/bbs1/16. Yukiko Kinoshita (SKE48 – Team KII).

In AKB48 6th Senbatsu General Election, which was almost a month ago, she finally managed to ranked. After failing to ranked in the previous 4 election she participated in, I can’t tell how happy I was about that. I was watching the election video not that long ago, it was kinda funny when they annouced her name. I think she was surprise, shocked or whatever. She just slip I think the stage was wet, it was raining. It look like she fell off her chair, talking about falling off a chair. When I saw the election result she ranked pretty high too, and I never expected her to ranked. I got so excited, I actually fell off my chair. That’s no lie.tumblr_n2rftnzTzf1rrlor2o6_128015. Rie Kitahara (AKB48 – Team K Co-Captain).

About 2 weeks ago (June 24th), was her Birthday. Happy Belated 23rd Birthday, Kitarie.8ac6909a14. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H, HKT48 Theater Manager).13120201_z_2013. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).

She’s gonna be a senbatsu member for SKE48 upcoming single “Bukiyou Taiyou”, which will be releassed on July 30th. It still sucks she got transfered to SKE48.01172560_AKB48_0312. Haruka Shimazaki (AKB48 – Team A).0311. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).

She’s still recovering from that handshake incident, that happen on May 25th. She did make an appearance at the AKB48 Theater, during Team A Performance on June 30th.Iriyama Anna, Magazine-44600610. Rina Kawaei (AKB48 – Team A).

Just like Annin she’s still recovering from that handshake incident, on May 25th. Right now I think she’s involve in making of the music video of AKB48 upcoming single, which she’s a senbatsu.

This is the single were the fans voted for the members who they wanted to be Senbatsu, Under Girls, etc.tumblr_myz79jgfFJ1qki7kio2_12809. Aika Oota (HKT48 – Team KIV Captain).27 - 18.

4. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

She was 1 of 16 members of Nogizaka46 who went to Japan Expo 2014 in Paris (July 4th), I really wanted to go even before they annouced they were going there. I couldn’t get a friend to go with me, I don’t like to travel alone to a country. Where I don’t speak and understand the language. They annouced that Nogizaka was going there, about 2 weeks before the event. By that time it was to late for me to make any plans for it. If I would have know a month or so in advance I would have gone, even alone. Cause Berryz Koubou and C-ute to name two was also appearing there.tumblr_n3gbqr2jZq1rckaavo3_12803. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48 – Team B).

There’s this Japanese TV Series called “Sailor Zombie”, I think it has 12 episode (They’re at 10 or 11). Anyways it’s great look it up, and watch it. It stars several AKB48 member – Mayu Watanabe, Yui Yokoyama, Karen Iwata, Nana Owada, Rina Kawaei, Juri Takahashi. The acting for the most part is not great and ridiculous, and the story is unbelievable and ridiculous. But it’s fun to watch.tor_683962824_52. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NMB48 – Team N).

It about a week or so (July 15th), it’s her Birthday. Happy 23rd Birthday, in advance. Yukirin.http://www.b-idol.com/bbs1/1. Haruna Kojima (AKB48 – Team A).04
