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).

* This might be my last post for a few weeks, as I will be going on a vacation in a couple of days. I’m actually taking 2 vacations in the next 3 weeks or so, first to San Francisco. You all know why I’m going there, will do post about it when I get back. Will have a lot of catching to do here when I get back, don’t really know when I will be able to post it up.

After that I will be home for a couple of days, then off to another vacation for a week. No one needs to know where I’m going for this one.

I didn’t go to that one, 2 cross country trips in a couple of months I thought was too much for me to do. Wake Up, Girls! also was at Anime Central in Chicago in 2014, I remember this at this time I was desperate just too see anything that J-Pop related. It was almost 2 years since I saw Berryz Koubou, which was the last J-Pop thing I attended. I really considered going and “Wake Up, Girls” was one reason, the only one actually. I didn’t go I think going to the J-Pop Summit in a couple months for the first time, may had something to do with my decision not to go.23. Nagisa no Dance Party – Shojotai (08/08/2017) (3,199).

August 12, 2017

HKT48 10th single “Kiss wa Matsu Shikanai no Deshou ka”, which was release on August 2nd. Sold 199,504 copies in it’s first week of release, to ranked number one on the weekly oricon singles charts. It’s their first single to sell less than 200,000 copies in it’s week of release, just missed it by about 500 copies. Hana Mstsuoka is center for this single, I thought this was her first. It’s her second I forgot that she was also center for the single “Saikou ka yo”, glad to see Meru Tashima back has senbatsu.

A very good single overall.

NMB48 3rd album “Namba Ai ~Ima, Omou Koto, which was release on August 2nd. Sold 159,387 copies in it’s first week of release, to ranked number one on the weeklr oricon album charts. When it comes to new materials I thought Keyakizaka46 album was bad (I double check it, it wasn’t that Bad), this one is even worse. This one is really bad it has only 3 new songs on all versions combine, 4 if you include the Theater Edition.

Limited Edition Type N Cover.

Limited Edition Type M Cover.

Limited Edition Type B Cover.

Regular Edition Cover.

Theater Edition Cover.
