Now a lot of these rankings are shocking. And they’ve added some young people to the mix. Kusumi Koharu who is 16 and Yamada Ryosuke who is 15. I seriously think they are too young to be added to the list. I was creeped out last year when Yajima Maimi made it on the list.

I’m really thrilled that 3 Morning Musume members are in the top ten. And I’m amazed my girl Koharu made it in the top 10! And Ryo is the top ten and moved up 5 places from last year. Which is amazing.

But a lot of these members fell significantly. Ai Otsuka who was 2nd or 3rd last year dropped all the way down to 12th place. And MatsuJun moved from 3rd place to 7th.

For the most part I agree with the results. The only thing I would change is switch Ayumi Hamasaki for Ai Otsuka and switch Kame with Yamapi. Anyway, the guys section is relatively the same, with the overdose of Johnny’s members. Jin and Kame from KAT-TUN managed to stay in their same exact positions from last year.

2009 predictions

So now that it’s officially 2009, I thought I’d start off the new year with predictions of what I think might happen in the upcoming months.


Hello Project:

Morning Musume-
1. They will release their 9th (technically 10th but I’m not counting Cover You) studio album, which isn’t much of a prediction. XD
2. They will add new members either from auditions in Japan or from those Korean auditions that happened a few months back.
3. They will get a number 1 single.

C-ute-
1. Kanna will continue to get noticed and will have another solo magazine shoot.
2. They will branch out more into Asia like Berryz did.

Berryz Koubou-
1. Yurina will continue to get lead solo lines. (ok that’s more of what I want to see)

Elder Club:
The official announcement in March will be nothing special.

Johnny’s Entertainment:

NEWS-
1. They will have a cool or rock sounding single, like KAT-TUNs’
2. They will expand more into the global market/have more overseas tours

Kanjani8-
1. Uchi will rejoin the group

Jpop:

1. Nami Tamaki will finally release a new single with Sony.
2. Puffy AmiYumi will tour America again.
3. BoA will just stick to dominating over Asia
4. Ai Otsuka will release a love song. Shocking! But I think it will happen. 😛
5. Koda Kumi will release another fully English single.

Jrock:

1. Miyavi will completely change his music style, yet again.
2. SuG’s single will continue to dramatically change and continue not to really impress me much.
3. Gazette will release a single like their old material (Unlikely, but they really should)
4. Dir en grey will have another headlining tour in America. I like that’s planned already, possibly.
5. An Cafe will finally have a major debut. (Very unlikely, but would still be cool)
6. Aicle will release a full length album.
7. The Candy Spooky Theater will get another new guitarist. Seriously, they are already on their 3rd.

Let’s see how many of these actually come true. :]
