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.
