My Favorite Members In The AKB48 Family, September 2018.

September 30, 2018

This month I’m just going to rate them on how cute I think they are, sex appeal (that could mean how sexy I think they are or how much I want to have sex with them or both), and how attractive I think they are. 0 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, this isn’t based on anything except for what I think of them.

August 28, 2018

30. Miku Tanaka (HKT48 – Team H).

 

 

 

 

 

29. Hana Matsuoka (HKT48 – Team II).28. Yui Kobayashi (Keyakizaka46 – 1st Generation).

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

On August 27th, it was her Birthday. Happy belated 26th Birthday, Sayuri.26. Akane Takayanagi (SKE48 – Team KII).25. Mizuki Yamashita (Nogizaka46 – 3rd Generation).

You just got to check her out she’s so cute and really funny, good news for her. Earlier this month she became a exclusive model for “CanCam Magazine”, Sayuri Matsumura is also an exclusive model for them. Which just means more photo shoots for her.24. Miona Hori (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).

 

 

 

 

 

 

23. Ranze Terada (Nogizaka46 – 2nd Generation).22. Miru Shiroma (NMB48 – Team M).

I think she’s the sexpot in the AKB48 Family.

 

 

 

 

 

 

21. Nao Furuhata (SKE48 – Team KII).20. Juri Takahashi (AKB48 – Team B Captain).19. Nanase Nishino (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).18. Yuka Ogino (NGT48- Team NIII Vice Captain).

 

 

 

 

 

 

17. Haruka Komiyama (AKB48 – Team K Captain).

Very few members in the AKB48 family look better in a bikini than her, I think she has a really nice body.16. Yui Kojina (HKT48 – Team H).15. Rika Nakai (NGT48 – Team G).

Almost a week ago August 23rd, it was her Birthday. Happy belated 21st Birthday, Rika.14. Yurina Hirate (Keyakizaka46 – 1st Generation).

Not that she really was doing a lot before, she needs to more solo photo shoots soon. She’s done very few this year, I know they don’t want to over work her.13. Rino Sashihara (HKT48 – Team H and HKT48 Theater Manager).12. Yui Oguri (AKB48 – Team 8 and AKB48 – Team A).

You know what I think she’ll be a future favorite member of mine, I just can’t get enough of her. I’m always checking her out, not as much as before. Now and then it can get pretty bad.

 

 

 

 

 

 

11. Asuka Saito (Nogizak46 – 1st Generation).

Earlier this month August 10th, it was her Birthday. Happy belated 20th Birthday to the youngest Nogizaka46 1st Generation Member, Asuka.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

I like her a lot she seems really shy and quiet, but has sex appeal.8. Ryoha Kitagawa (SKE48 – Team S Leader).

No member in SKE48 I fantasize about, she’s probably the nearest thing. Which isn’t saying much.

7. Anna Iriyama (AKB48 – Team A).

Since she’s in Mexico and won’t be coming to AKB48 until April next year, I was going to put her on hiatus til she came back to AKB48. Since she’s keeping us up to date with what’s going on with her in Mexico, I change my mind. Yes, I do check up on her quite a bit (always did). You know why, I’m always checking on her. It’s her hair.6. Sakura Miyawaki (HKT48 – Team KIV Co-Captain).

Keeping you up to date with that “Produce 48” thing, I’m not going to any details. It’s a Korean idols and AKB48 show about forming a 12 member K-Pop girl group. A total of 12 episodes after the 11th episode Sakura Miyawaki is in 1st, so she should make it. It’s not just Sakura a few members in The AKB48 family should make the 12 member group, like Miho Miyazaki who’s supposably a really big K-Pop fan who was second. It’s been years now if I ever wanted to get back into Myao again this might be it, I may have to check out those shows. And NMB48 Miru Shiroma who’s a “Red Velvet” fan has a good chance, just to name a few. One more episode left. I’m cheering for Sakura.5. Mion Mukaichi (AKB48 – Team A).4. Sayaka Yamamoto (NMB48 – Team N Captain).

She announced her graduation on July 30th, I think her graduation date from NMB48 will be October 27th.3. Mai Shiraishi (Nogizaka46 – 1st Generation).

More than a week ago August 20th, it was her Birthday. Happy belated 26th Birthday, Maiyan.2. Meru Tashima (HKT48 – Team H).1. Yuki Kashiwagi (AKB48 – Team B and NGT48 – Team NIII).

She’s back at number one.

This year she’s starting to do a lot more photo shoots, lately I’ve been seeing and hearing a lot of her. It seem like she disappeared for a long while there.

My Top 25 J-Pop Idols and Top 20 J-Pop Artist, July 2018.

July 31, 2018

I do this twice a year in January and July, sometimes I just don’t have the time and do it the following month.

Top 25 J-Pop Idols :

* I’ll be including their current age this time, for no other reason than to find out what the average age is for the Top 25.

Name / Age / Group.

25. Reina Yokoyama (17) (Morning Musume).

She’s a 13th Generation Morning Musume member, although in beginning I thought she was really cute and pretty. It took me a while to get into her.24. Anna Iriyama (22) (AKB48).

She’s been in Mexico for a while now, to study and to co-star in some Mexican TV Comedy “LIKE”, I think it starts airing in early September. Now I have to convince my friends that we should go to Mexico instead of Cuba, in September. Have you seen her hair lately it’s almost like how she had it 4 or 5 years ago, like she ever changes her hair. She does have the most beautiful hair in the world as far as I’m concern.23. Rei Inoue (17) (Kobuashi Factory).

Right now I have to rank her as one of the most Pretties J-Pop Idol, she just gets prettier and prettier. One of my favorite twosome for a threesome is her and Rikako Sasaki of Angerme.

Almost 2 weeks ago July 17th, was her Birthday. Happy 17th belated Birthday, Rei.22. Midoriko (EMPiRE).

I like her I think she’s really cute and pretty, It was love at first sight. I can’t find her actually age anywhere, I think she’s a lot older than I think. I don’t think she’s anywhere near 13 or 14 years old, which was what I thought at first. Every time I do this average age thing theirs always someone who’s age you I just can’t find.21. Chisaki Morito (18) (Morning Musume and Country Girls).

It doesn’t seem like’s getting that much attention or pushing as before, I don’t like it. I don’t know if I should be worried or not, I’m worried.20. Yume (Yume Hashimoto) (15) (Devil ANTHEM).

I like and think all the members of “Devil ANTHEM” are cute, when you think all the members in a group are cute and someone in particular catches your eye. You know she’s special or I think she’s special. And she’s tall, she’s one I’m definitely paying very close attention.19. Rurika Yoshizawa (14) (FuwaFuwa).

A guilty pleasure of mine, for a long time now.18. Sakura Miyawaki (20) (HKT48).

I don’t know if any of you follow that Korean show “Produce 48” I don’t really follow it. It’s like a talent show with members from the AKB48 family and K-Pop Trainees, it’s a competition where they pick 12 girls to form a new girl group. Anyways Sakura is doing very well she ranked 1st in the 1st episode, after 4 episode she’s still in the Top 5. That’s the good news ,the bad news is if she makes the 12 member group she has to stay with this group for 30 months. Sorry, But I can’t see that happen.17. Mion Mukaichi (20) (AKB48).

One of my favorites that I like to fantasize about, definitely my favorite in the AKB48 family, I think.16. Sayaka Yamamoto (25) (NMB48).

Her hair is growing very long now, I love her with long hair. I think it’s the longest I’ve ever seen it.

I just found out about this just now, I could see this coming I just tried not to think about it. On July 30th she announced her graduation, graduation date will be announced later.

15. Kanako Momota (24) (Momoiro Clover Z).

I never knew she did the Japanese voice dubbing of Shuri on Black Panther and Avengers : Infinity War, got to watch those in the Japanese version. Even though I don’t really understand Japanese.

On July 12th, it was her Birthday. Happy belated 24th Birthday, Kanako.14. Seira Jonishi (21) (Tokyo Performance Doll).

I don’t think Tokyo Performance Doll is doing as much activities as before, that’s Ok. She’s keeping busy, it seems like she’s doing a lot of modeling.

In a couple of weeks August 14th, it’s her Birthday. Happy 22nd Birthday in advance Seira.

 

 

 

 

 

 

13. Rikako Sasaki (17) (Angerme).

What’s with Hello! Project and baseball, even she’s getting into it. I’ve mention I like to do a threesome with her and Rie Inoue, what’s better than that. With her and Maria Makino.12. Nana Asakawa (19) (SUPER GiRLS).

Keep those great bikini photo shoots coming.

 

 

 

 

 

 

11. Nao Sakura (20) (Team Syachihoko).

I love her, but I find it very frustrating to find anything current or remotely new on her. I’ll say it again, if I could choose one J-Pop Idol to out on a date or just hang out with. It would be her.10. Rio Watanabe (18) (Babyraids JAPAN).

I still remember when I first heard of “Babyraids”, she was so young and cute. She dance with two left feet and seem clumsy, her dancing got a little better over time. Babyraids JAPAN will disbanding in the near future. Which I will get to later on.9. Mai Shiraishi (25) (Nogizaka46).

I like to know what her net worth is or income, especially the last 2 or 3 years. How she ranks among Japanese female celebrities. You think it’s more than Sasshi.

 

 

 

 

 

8. Ai Negishi (25) (PASSPO).

PASSPO will be disbanding in the very near future, which I will get to later on. I hope she just doesn’t disappear, she’s so hot. I just want to see more of her, I just can’t get enough of her.

7. Asami Watanabe (23) (Cheeky Parade).

Will have to look for a new J-Pop wife very soon.

 

 

 

 

 

6. Miki Shimomura (19) (Fairies).

I think she’s growing her hair, it seems longer now than before. I hope so I like her so much better with long hair. It gave her so much more sex appeal.5. Maria Makino (17) (Morning Musume).

Ever since Cheeky Parade Seran Mizorogi graduated more than a year ago, I haven’t had J-Pop girlfriend since. I think I will make it Maria Makino for now, she’s basically has replace Seran Mizorogi has my favorite fantasy J-Pop Idol. Ok, enough of that.

I’m actually taking a little break from Maria Makino, right now I’m just getting a little sick and tired of her almost non-stop overexposure for almost 2 years. Unless your a Makino fan you may not notice it, forget a long period of time. She’s just way too hot to stay away from for even a short period of time.

 

 

 

 

4. Haruna Iikubo (23) (Morning Musume).

For a while there was barely hanging on as my favorite Morning Musume member, with me getting a little sick of Maria Makino and the release of a photo book from her not that long ago. She has put some distance, at least for now. I know I said I stop buying J-Pop stuff temporally for financial reasons, I just had to get her photo book. This was a surprise to me I didn’t know she had one coming till maybe a couple of weeks or month before it’s release, not disappointed at all. Does she ever disappoint me, no not at all.3. Yuki Kashiwagi (27) (AKB48 and NGT48).

Yeah, I Know in my AKB48 ranking I had Maiyan rank ahead of Yukirin. Here I have Yukirin ranked way higher than Maiyan, let’s just say the two rankings don’t really have anything to do with each other, they do in a way but they don’t. First of all the two of them are very close you can add Meru Tashima also, I probably like Yukirin a little more than both of them. I don’t know if this is the word I’m looking for but exposure and publicity, I’ll use magazine photo shoots as an example. Maiyan is basically everywhere in that department for years now, Yukirin has been doing quite a bit lately. For the longest time she was barely doing any, she has solo concert in Shanghai, coming up soon. That has nothing to with AKB48. Anyways this my ranking so be it.

2. Meru Tashima (18) (HKT48).

She needs to release a photo book.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Hitomi Arai (20) (Tokyo Girls’ Style).

Ok, I’m looking back again. I still remember the first I saw her about 4 years ago, I don’t think I was ever has excited about meaning anyone before. Maybe, Berryz Koubou Yurina Kumai. When I first saw her my eyes just lit up, the great thing about this “Meet & Greet” it was so personal. It lasted for about a minute or 2 the other members were also there, that’s beside the point.

* Average Age – 20.2.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

My Top 20 J-Pop Artist :

20. Wi-Fi-5.

I like them, I really do. Especially Raimu Shiratori she’s my guilty pleasure.

* Can’t find any current  pictures with all 5 of them together, so you’ll get 2 pictures.19. There There Theres.

Very bad turnover rate, even when they were “Bellring Girls Heart”. They’re very entertaining regards of the line-up.18. Devil ANTHEM.

I like them they’re so cute, love their songs to. My interest in them is growing by day ever so slowly, since I first heard of them.17. Tsubaki Factory.

The members are cute, I like their songs. Not as much as Kobushi Factory.16. Kobushi Factory.

They have a new single that will release on August 8th, can’t wait for it. So far I love all their singles.15. Tokyo Girls’ Style.

I like them a lot, for some reason I find them very frustrating to follow.14. NMB48.

They have some members I like and I follow a bit, NMB48 better come up with something. My interest them …………. Let’s just say it’s not good.13. SKE48.

Jurina Matsui will be going hiatus for health reason, from what I hear I think it has something to do with her bashing Sakura Miyawaki. Why would she do that to sweet, cute Sakura. If they ever wanted her to get out of “Produce48”, this was it. She was actually in a good position and a good chance of making the 12 member group, I can’t remember if she has ever gone on hiatus before. I’m sure she’ll be back before next SKE48 single comes out.12. Fairies.

Don’t like their lack of relevant activities. I was never into Momoka Ito before, lately I’ve taken an interest in her.11. Nogizaka46.

Their singles as reach AKB48 level or has surpass it, I’m very curious how much their next single will sell. Not long to wait since it will be release on August 8th.10. HKT48.

I still think they’re the cutest and most fun group in the entire AKB48 family.9. PASSPO.

Bad news if your PASSPO fans as they will disband on September 22nd, they were a great to follow. Not the last couple of years, they weren’t releasing anything much.8. Tokyo Performance Doll.

Down to 6 members now as Anyu Kobayashi, Saki Shingu & Sakurako Iida Graduated on April 19th.7. Momoiro Clover Z.

I like them better as 5 member group, in fact I like them better when they were a 6 member group. That was such a long time ago. Which brings me to Akari Hayami who graduated from the group in April 2011, she’s the reason I got into this group. Then lost interest in them about 2 weeks later when I read she was graduating. I eventually I got back into them, but that’s another story. Back to Akari she’s getting married.6. Cheeky Parade.

Cheeky Parade will disband on July 31st, which is today. At least I could to see them in concert and actually met them also. Will always treasure those memories.5. Yumemiru Adolescence.

When they added those 3 new members earlier this year, I wasn’t to sure. I love this line-up.4. SUPER GiRLS.

I’m very surprise or how I manage to keep my interest them this high, for this long.3. Babyraids JAPAN.

More sad news, they will disband in late September. It was pleasure to see them in concert and meet them last year in September, at San Francisco. I’ll always remember the little flirting between me and Manatsu Hayashi.2. Morning Musume.

Haruna Ogata graduated from Morning Musume on June 20th, I will miss her. I wish her “The Best Of Luck”.

She was one of my favorites, when I went to see them in Houston a couple of years ago, I was actually looking out for Maria Makino. Will Haruna Ogata was the one that caught my eyes first, I don’t know if that means anything.1. AKB48.

AKB48 are back at number one I’ve been taken a lot more than usually this year, mainly thanks to “Yui Oguri”.
