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 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. Kanako Momota (Momoiro Clover Z).

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
