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

Momoiro Clover Z in New York City.

November 26, 2016

I just got back from a week vacation in New York City, in which I attended Momoiro Clover Z concert at the PlayStation Theater in New York City. Last Saturday November 19th, this was the main reason I took the week off so I could attend the concert. Bought a Kanako T-shirt, since she’s my favorite member had to get it. The concert was great the crowd was really into it, it lasted pretty long more than 2 hours. I wasn’t able to take pictures of their performance security was basically almost beside me, my friend manage to take some pretty good pictures. My friend watch the concert at the side, I watch their performance where I was it had a better view of the stage. So I could see Kanako Momota pretty cute face and cute dimples, and if Shiori Tamai body was as nice as I thought it would be and it was. After the concert we walk around a bit at Time Square, had a very late dinner and check out some stores that was still open. At almost midnight we started to head back to New York Penn Station to leave, since the PlayStaion was on the way back we check if Momoiro Clover Z had left the Theater yet. To my surprise since fans was still there, I knew they hadn’t left so I waited. It seem like a long wait since it was cold and hail was coming down. They didn’t leave the theater til after midnight, it was worth the wait I manage take a video of them leaving the theater.

I’m a big Hockey fan watch a “Rangers” game the next day, then went to Atlantic City for a couple of days. Then back to New York City to watch the “Thanksgiving Parade”.

My Favorite J-Pop Idols and J-Pop Artist, August 2016.

August 30, 2016

I do this twice a year in January and July, because I went on a 2 week vacation last month. I’ve decide to this in August, I did the same thing in 2014.

My Top 25 Favorite J-Pop Idols, singers, or whatever. These days the definition of it can be very vague.

25. Haruna Ogata (Morning Musume).

When I went to see Morning Musume at Anime Matsuri in Houston earlier this year, believe it or not she was the first one that caught my eye. I always thought she was kinda cute, seeing her in person was I thought she was just super cute.

And she also looks really good in bikini.5378034424. Honoka Akimoto (Team Syachihoko).

I was really into her I guess for a couple of years or so, then I just lost interest in her. Earlier this year I’ve started to get back to kinda following her, she’s just as fun and funny and beautiful as ever.akimoto01_gravure0123. Karin Ogino (Yumemiru Adolescence).

I don’t fantasize about her anymore, those were great times. I still enjoy following her and her group.Cjsae1lUYAAMcp622. Moa Kikuchi (BABYMETAL).

I’ve always like her ever since she was with Sakura Gakuin, that seem like a long time ago.tumblr_o6g2ecJ3YC1us4326o1_128021. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48).

She’s going to release a solo album, at the end of October. She will also write and compose a few songs on the album.NMB48 Sayaka Yamamoto Full Throttle on Shonen Magazine 01020. Mayu Watanabe (AKB48).

Taking about releasing solo albums, wasn’t Mayu suppose to release a solo album this year. I haven’t heard anything about that for the longest time, same with that solo single.819. Yuna Sekine (Cheeky Parade).

I’m sorry I really can’t think of anything to write about her, except I really enjoy listening to her talk. I’m all ears when she speaks.Cno8uL-VUAAbehv18. Seira Jonishi (Tokyo Performance Doll).

She’s just absolutely beautiful and sexy, seeing her person in San Francisco at the J-Pop summit was a big thrill for me. She’s as beautiful in person as she looks  in her pictures, I think she’s a cousin of Kei Jonishi. So I’ve read in a few places.

About couple of weeks ago August 14th, was her birthday. Happy belated 20th birthday, Seira.CaxVvU0UcAEScQz17. Nao Sakura (Team Syachihoko).

Very few idols I enjoy following more than her, even when my interest in Team Syachihoko was diminishing which it was at one time. I was always checking her out. I don’t think their’s an idol I want to hang out for a good time more than her. She cut her hair short earlier this year, I prefer long hair. But she looks super cute in short hair.

Her birthday is a day after mine on September 10th. Happy 19th birthday in advance, Nao.tumblr_o34tceuBbX1trwfxdo3_128016. Kanako Momota (Momoiro Clover Z).

I’m really looking forward to seeing her and Momoiro Clover Z in New York City on November 19th, got my tickets already.5189500315. Kanna Hashimoto (Rev. from DVL).

Rev. from DVL haven’t release anything much this year, I guess it’s because Kanna is doing a few stuff outside of the group.13568758_647120602111183_5037919514828633532_o14. Miyuki Watanabe (NMB48).

Since she graduated from NMB48 on August 9th, I wasn’t going to include her in this ranking. Since I usually do this in July and it’s Milky, what the hell. She will be missed.tumblr_o1tnxuY0dr1sgvptro6_128013. Meru Tashima (HKT48).

I really enjoy following her on Google+, she always does a post everyday. She usually post good pictures and videos also.meruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu12. Maria Makino (Morning Musume).

A master at fan service, maybe not quite a master yet. She really knows how to please her fans, and make new fans. Or depending who are, you may find her somewhat annoying. I think Haruna Ogata is more of a master of fan service.65204_85353_333111. Kei Jonishi (NMB48).

This really sucks, I’m not really seeing her as much as before.tumblr_nmce275UQP1rf50epo1_128010. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46).

If she was to dye her hair black, that’s probably her natural hair color. Anyways if she had black hair she would look like Mayu Watanabe.20160503_1015_0189. Haruna Iikubo (Morning Musume).

I sill can’t get over how I failed to notice her when I was basically standing beside her, in Houston at Anime Matsuri. Just me and my friend with Morning Musume, for about minute. When I finally realize who I was standing beside with, and got over shock. They started to head out, talk about a miss opportunity.img201601201429064448. Seran Mizoroigi (Cheeky Parade).

I’m afraid the days of her being my J-Pop sexual fantasy girl has ended, she’s still a lot fun and very funny at least I think so. And I still find her cute, so she’s still worth following.Clyusi9UgAE0EA17. Asami Watanabe (Cheeky Parade).

She has change her hairstyle again, I wonder if this will become a yearly thing. Regardless how she has her hair, I think she’s just absolutely gorgeous.CoiHEmGVMAAMJ_z6. Miki Shimomura (Fairies).

My new J-Pop sexual fantasy girl, no that’s not true. No one will ever replace Seran Mizorogi in that department, I do fantasize sexual about her quite often.tumblr_o6wonbXQOa1rzneyjo2_12805. Ai Negishi (PASSPO).

It seems like I’ve been following her and PASSPO for a long time, actually I guess I have. Since I first heard of them and became a fan about 3 or 4 months after I discovered J-Pop, she’s turning 24 next month. For some reason I think she’s a lot older.CoRYU2SUMAApyh84. Yukafin Doll (Afilia Saga).

I thought she was suppose to graduated from Afilia Saga earlier this year, when I saw her on the cover of Afilia Saga latest single. I was very surprise she was still in the group, I’ve been trying to find out about her graduation. It seem like it’s all been forgotten, no one is mentioning it. Which is find by me.CoYKWShUkAAW9V43. Hitomi Arai (Tokyo Girls’ Style).

I was going to write something sexual about her, but I’m sorry. I just can’t say anything bad about her, it’s not bad some would say sexual feelings is healthy. But, you know what I mean.ClEs53wXIAAoE4P2. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48).

Does anyone know of any Yukirin news lately that’s of any relevant and worth checking out.tumblr_ntzkzoz2Pq1u1rt3jo1_12801. Haruna Kojima (AKB48).

Still no date about her graduation, but I think she’s still good for one AKB48 single. And I’m not talking about the one were fans voted you on.AKB48 Haruna Kojima Cute and Sexy on Smart Magazine 001_________________________________________________________________________________________

My Top 20 Favorite J-Pop Group.

20. Babyraids JAPAN.

I’m starting to find them a little boring to follow, I hope this changes. I really enjoy this group.CmCspnFVYAAORH419. Tokyo Girls’ Style.

Ever since they became a 4 member group, it seems they’ve been doing less activities. But, they are releasing a new single “Shinkai” tomorrow.CkKEBaDUgAA4Uyo18. Team Syachihoko.

My interest in them has started to pick up since earlier this year, after it was declining a little bit for a while there. Yuzu Ando is still on indefinite hiatus, I hope she comes back soon. Or, that she comes back all.CfrIeV1UIAA2maK17. C-ute.

They’ve announce they will disband in June of next year, that’s like almost a year from now. So, I won’t really say anything about this just yet. They’re sentimental favorite of mine, so this is shitty 9nine.

Just when I was really staring to get into “Umika Kawashima” earlier this year, she graduates on July 23rd. I really like 9nine even before I really thought anything of her, cause I really didn’t before. So this shouldn’t really matter, I think it will. I will definitely miss her, for a while a couple of months ago. She was probably the J-Pop idol I was fantasizing about the most.CaiOrPdVAAABrCG15. Fairies.

Whenever theirs an Anime Convention here in North Amierica, I’m always requesting them to invite this group. I’ve even requested a couple times for them as guest at J-Pop summit in San Francisco. This group is just becoming more and more sexier, each time I see them.CjJLanZUYAIvGO314. Country Girls.

I just love this group, to me everything they do is all win. I’m very sad about about Manaka Inaba graduating on August 4th, due to health reasons.6KKuJsc13. Tokyo Performance Doll.

They’re probably ranked just a little higher than they should be, I guess because I just saw them last month at the J-Pop summit in San Francisco. I actually considered not attending, I like them but not enough to drive 3 or 4 days to see them. I like Seira Jonishi who I would love just to see, but she’s no Hitomi Arai. I’m glad I did go, had a lot of fun there with group. I’m actually following them very closely since seeing them.20160703_TPD1_offshot_toukou12. Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku.

My interest in them is declining a little bit, mainly due they’re not doing much activities and ain’t releasing much lately. At least it seems like it to me.91q5BdCdvAL__SL1500_11. NMB48.

I will still like NMB48, not having Milky. Will hurt.ChNeWatVEAEZESo10. SKE48.

They’ve had a lot members graduate the last several years, at least they’re being replaced by some cute members. I don’t really follow SKE48 that much, I think I like them better now. They seem a lot more fresh and fun.CnO7nd4UMAA2GuL9. Nogizaka46.

All things being equal, I think they’re very close to AKB48 level. Maybe even little above AKB48. Then again maybe not they’re having great singles sales, it’s a little misleading the same can be said about AKB48.ay6Rkqs8. Yumemiru Adolescence.

This group has it all, and Kyouka is just developing very well.CoWg5tJUMAE6qScI think this is very funny them doing the Domobics dance, which Tokyo Performance Doll keep doing at the J-Pop Summit. Or at least this is what I think it is.ConnrJHVIAE40Av7. HKT48.

Make Meru Tashima center again, I need to see more Meru.4433cb2db805443bb04503ed8ec059d46. PASSPO.

They’re doing more activities this year, last year they barely did anything. I like them, but for the longest time it was hard to find anything new on them. And is Naomi Anzai ever becoming a sexpot「NO%20MUSIC,%20NO%20IDOL」vol_110%20PASSPO☆5. SUPER GiRLS.

3 of their 4 singles in the last 3 years, have been summer singles. I was going to say find by me, bikinis on the cover. Unfortunately not this year, 3 years ago they didn’t either. Must because of those very young new members.

On June 25th Rina Katsuta and Reira Arai graduated from the group. They lose 2 members added 5 new members.img_SuperGirls_AS_2016_0348414. Momoiro Clover Z.

They will be doing a concert in New York City on November 19th, I will going to that concert.tumblr_nx54t2RaJv1r6njvto1_12803. Cheeky Parade.

For now they will be a 7 member group as Marin Yamamoto & Mariya Suzuki, I think will be on a 2 year hiatus to study in Los Angeles, USA. Also going with them will “GEM” member Maya Takeda, I wrote in one of my post she was graduated from the group. It’s not true just like the other 2 she will be just on hiatus.CqmSsptUIAECv3X2. Morning Musume.

I guess just before I went to see them in February at Houston for Anime Matsuri, my interest in them was probably as low as it ever was since I started to get to really into them during the Summer of 2012. The decline started around the end of the summer of 2014, it’s not has bad as it sounds. Although it was at the lowest its been since I started following them, it was still a lot higher than almost all the idol group I like. I guess the only bad thing about this was I really didn’t get to know the 12th generation that well. Ever since that time in Houston my interest them has been going up, it’s probably higher now than it ever was. And it hasn’t even reach it’s peak yet. Right now they’re the group I’m paying the most attention too, and this includes AKB48. I said the same thing a few times a couple of years ago, in reality that wasn’t really the case. This time it really is.BM0OOac1. AKB48.

It’s been a long, long while now. I really find them very frustrating to follow, I don’t even know where to start. If anything they have quantity if not quality.

It’s been going on almost forever but I really hate when they have other members from their sister groups on their singles, it was bad then. It’s just getting worse and worse. A lot more I could say what I don’t like, then this go on forever.

Since I don’t have a problem with AKB48 Team 8, I’ll post picture of them.

Team 8.
