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

December 24, 2017

30. Miru Shiroma (NMB48 – Team M and AKB48 – Team A).

She’ll be center for NMB48 upcoming single “Warota People”, which will release in a few days.29. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).28. Ranze Terada (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).27. Yui Oguri (AKB48 – Team 8).

In a couple of days December 26th, it’s her Birthday. Happy Sweet 16th Birthday in advance, Yui.26. Natsumi Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team H Captain).

25.  Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team N).24. Akane Takayanagi (SKE48 – Team KII).23. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).22. Haruka Komiyama (AKB48 – Team 4).21. Haruka Kodama (HKT48 – Team H ans AKB48 – Team K).20. Rika Nakai (NGT48 – Team NIII).19. Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).18. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).17. Asuka Saito (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).16. Sumire Sato (SKE48 – Team E).

She graduated from SKE48 on December 19th, but her last handshake event will be on January 7, 2018. I’ll probably still ranked her next month.

I wish her “The Best Of Luck”.15. Yurina Hirate (Keyakizaka46 – 1st Generation).14. Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).13. Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team B).12. Yui Kojina (HKT48 – Team H).11.

I doubt their was a member in The AKB48 family, that I enjoyed and had fun following more than her. When my interest in her was at an all time high, Milky probably comes close. I had a different feeling with her.5. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team KIV Co-Captain and AKB48 – Team A).

Has she been keeping a low profile lately, it seems like I’m not hearing and seeing much of her lately. Not like before when she was everywhere.4. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N).

Another member that seems to be keeping a low profile, for quite a time now.3. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).2. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).1. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NGT48 – Team NIII).

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

October 27, 2017

30. Yui Oguri (AKB48 – Team 8).

With Ririka Sutou who graduated from NMB48 very late in August, it left a spot open.

This is way long over due, she’s someone who I’ve really like for a long time now. She’s just so cute and sweet.29. Sayuri Matsumura (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).28. Ranze Tereda (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).27. Miori Ichikawa (NMB48 – Team N).26. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).25. Akane Takayanagi (SKE48 – Team KII).24. Natsumi Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team H Captain).23. Rika Nakai (NGT48 – Team NIII).22. Asuka Saito (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).21. Haruka Komiyama (AKB48 – Team 4).20. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).19. Haruka Kodama (HKT48 – Team H and AKB48 – Team K).18. Yurina Hirate (Keyakizaka46 – 1st generation).

I must admit although I check up on Keyakizaka46 a bit, she’s the only member I really know or care about knowing.17. Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team 4 Captain).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 was moving up my rankings very quickly since she first appeared here about a year ago, but she’s been in this position for a few months. She actually got as high as number 12, it look like she was heading in the Top 10. I actually thought she would get there, I think she’ll be stucked at this position for a long while. Maybe moved down a position or 2.12 Rie Kitahara (NGT48 Captain – Team NIII).

Sometime in Spring 2018, will be a sad day for me. She’s suppose to graduated around that time.

I may have mention this here before, I can’t remember. If I did I stand by it “I think she as the most sex appeal in the AKB48 family”, I’m only saying this cause it’s Kitarie. At one time I really though she did, actually I still do.11. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H, HKT48 Theater Manager and STU48 Manager).10. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S Leader and AKB48 – Team 4).9. Yuria Kizaki (AKB48 – Team B).

Since she graduated from AKB48 at the end of August, I’ll include her in my rankings one last time. I wish her ” The Best Of Luck”.

I sure will miss this little sexpot.Because she’s so hot, I’ll add another picture. A first here I think, I think this the first time I gave a member more than solo one picture.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).2. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizka46 – 1st Generation).1. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NGT48 – Team NIII).


AKB48 Group Unit Janken (Paper, Scissors & Rock) Tournament 2017.

October 1, 2017

This was held on September 24th, at Nippon Gaishi Hall, Nagoya, Japan. I’m a week late, at that time I just got back from a long vacation and didn’t have the time to this this. Til now.
