My Top 30 Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, January 2019.

January 15, 2019

* Starting this month I won’t be ranking HKT48 Sakura Miyawaki anymore til she’s done with that K-Pop thing, which will be in early 2021.

30. Rei Jonishi (NMB48 – Team BII).

I like her, I’m really trying to get into her. She just doesn’t do it for me just yet, not like the way her older sister did.

 

 

 

 

 

 

29. Madoka Moriyasu (HKT48 – Team KIV).

 

 

 

 

 

 

28. Yui Kobayashi (Keyakizaka46 – 1st Generation).

She will be releasing her first photo book in March, I think she might be the 5th Keyakizak46 member to release a photo book. I only know of 4 others one being Miho Watanabe who releasing one in a couple of days. I hope some bikini shots, I think Yui would look really good in a bikini.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

26. Akane Takayanagi (SKE48 – Team KII).

 

 

 

 

 

 

25. Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team B Captain).

 

 

 

 

 

 

24. Miku Tanaka (HKT48 – Team H).

She never was, for some reason. When ever I think of her, I always think that she was a member of AKB48.

 

 

 

 

 

 

23. Hana Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team TII).

In few days January 19th, it’s her Birthday. Happy 19th Birthday in advance, Hana.

 

 

 

 

 

22. Mizuki Yamashita (Nogizaka46 – 3rd Generation).

 

 

 

 

 

 

21. Miona Hori (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).

I don’t know if I’ll be following “IZ*ONE” at all, Sakura Miyawaki K-Pop group. If I needed someone to remind me of Sakura, Miona Hori is the one. That’s how I found out about her, I thought I was it was Sakura I was checking out. But, no.

 

 

 

 

 

 

20. Ranze Terada (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).

 

 

 

 

 

 

19. Miru Shiroma (NMB48 – Team M).

 

 

 

 

 

 

18. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H and HKT48 Theater Manager).

17. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

She graduated from Nogizaka46 on December 31, 2018. Her graduation concert won’t be til next month.

 

 

 

 

 

 

16. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).

 

 

 

 

 

 

15. Yui Kojina (HKT48 – Team H).14. Haruka Komiyama (AKB48 – Team K Captain).13. Yurina Hirate (Keyakizaka46).

 

 

 

 

 

 

12. Yuka Ogino (NGT48 – Team NIII Vice Captain).

 

 

 

 

 

 

11. Rika Nakai (NGT48 – Team G).

 

 

 

 

 

 

10. Saki Takeuchi (SKE48 – Team KII).9. Rena Kato (AKB48 – Team A).

 

 

 

 

 

 

8. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S).7. Asuka Saito (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Yui Oguri (AKB48 – Team 8 and AKB48 – Team A).

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).4. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team A).

On December 8, 2018. Last month Yui Yokoyama the current General Director of AKB48 announced that Mion will become the 3rd General Director of AKB48 after Minami Takahashi and Yui Yokoyama, which is very surprising to me Mion doesn’t seem that kind of person. Then again Yui seem very quiet and timid, and I think she turn out pretty good. I’m not sure when she’ll officially become it, I won’t be surprise if it’s late in the year.



 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).

About a week ago January 7th, it was her Birthday. Happy belated 19th Birthday, Meru.

 

 

 

 

 

1. Yui Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NGT48 – Team NIII).

My Top 30 Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, December 2018

December 26, 2018

30. Madoka Moriyasu (HKT48 – Team KIV).

With NMB48 Sayaka Yamamoto graduation a spot open, I’m very busy this time of year. I don’t really have time to check and think who, Madoka Moriyasu is the only that came to mind. I do like her I think she’s cute, especially in the beginning when she tried to be so cute that it was funny to watch. How I feel about her was how I felt about Aki Takajo, it’s weird and it’s something I can’t explain. I find her very sexually attractive, theirs something about me that doesn’t want to like her. But I do, just like was with Aki Takajo. I’m Still waiting For her solo album.

She’ll be going on hiatus, well not really at least not a complete hiatus. She’s been diagnosed with sacroiliac joint dysfunction and distal radius fracture, she’s been advised to take it really easy, she won’t be able to do any dancing or anything like that. She’ll continue to do some Keyakizaka46 continue activities that don’t require her to do anything, that could be of danger to her. I guess she’ll continue being Keyakizak46 center for upcoming singles.
