Well these are my current rankings and I will go into detail on each one. But here is a little background on my current infatuation with Musume. It started in 2000 when I hear I WISH. I fell in love with the 4th generation and I kind of faded out until around 2003 when I found a karaoke video of generations 1-5 (right before 6th gen joined) and I fell in love again. I have been collecting all of there singles so far and waiting for Kimagure Princess to come in the mail as I type. So on I go with my review! Yes I did this without Koharu because my emotions are conflicting on her now.
Junjun has been on the top of my list at one point and now she is down at the bottom. I don't know why. There are a few reasons though, one is that her personality has become so strange and baby like. She acts like a kid when she is just as old as Ai. Please Junjun, leave the cute stuff to Mitsui, Linlin, and Reina. They are younger and do it better. Two, she has stolen away Reika love for ReiJun. BOO! But that is my own spiteful reason. Yeah but Junjun is not one of my favorites anymore. I love all the girls but if I had to pick Junjun just wouldn't be at the top.
7. Takahashi Ai
WHY! Why can't I rank you higher?!?! I love you Ai-chan. I mean all my second favorite pairings involve you. I love her voice, dance control, and her cute little smile. I think she is a bit over played, but only because she is the best. I know why but it still bothers me. I am a strange person. But all in all Ai is amazing. My 5-7 picks are all on about the same level anyway so it's not like I have dropped her down way much since she is tied with two other girls but I just can't put her higher. But Ai-chan is love!
6. Niigaki Risa
This is another why can't I rank you higher girl? I mean we have the same name! Risa is one of the only reasons I decided to stick around with Musume for a while. Her smile can melt anyone's heart and she is a Disney freak like myself. I actually find myself having a lot of things in common, such as deco work and Disney loves. But also I think Risa is one of the most beautiful women in the whole of H!P ever, call me basis if you like but she is amazingly beautiful. If one last thing to say about Risa would be that she is epic win!
5. Michishige Sayumi
I use to hate Sayumi, she was so annoying and couldn't sing. She can't sing as well as some others but I think when I started to look into Sayumi's true character that's when I started to love her more. She tries a lot harder than some other member on her voice. When watching her perform it was easy to see when she was happy with her voice or if she was frustrated with her voice. She may try to cover it up but her poker face is horrid. I love you Sayumi and I wouldn't have you change anything about your beautiful self, especially your amazing hair, I need tip on taking care of mine.
4. Kamei Eri
You must love your aliens! Just kidding, Eri has an amazing voice and her character is one of my favorites. Kamei was my hidden favorite for a while now just because I really couldn't figure her out at first. She had a stunning voice and had crazy amazing dance skills. Yet she was so shy and cute. Now that I am able to see her be her strange and amazing self it helps me connect with her. Something she never really shows on the outside is her strong friendship with all the members. I feel like she values the time spent together even though she has a strange way of showing it. I always figured her lazying around going "Nu!" like Nya-san from Kirarin Revolution.
Oh my Linlin! She is so funny. She is actually tied with my number 2 for my favorites and quickly gaining more love. Anything Linlin does makes me love her more. She has a cute face and she is so funny. When she does her "Ha! Ha! Ha!" I burst out laughing every time. I almost cried I was laughing so hard the first time I saw it. What I love about Linlin the most is it doesn't matter how stupid or retarded it makes her look Linlin will say it and not care. She is so adorable and she is a really good dancer. It really wasn't till Kimagure Princess did I notice how she can balance her cute and sexy side. I mean she could be the next Koharu in that aspect. If there is anyone to watch in the future it will be Linlin to see how she explodes on the scene.
2. Tanaka Reina
Reina! I shall melt away into thousands of puddles for Reina. No one person I have ever seen in Musume has been so smooth and so sensual as Reina. Even when she was 13 when she first joined her look was that of "I don't give a dam". I find that so amazing that she has kept to who she is the whole time. Just amazing. Her name means Queen in Spanish and it should. She is the queen of fashion and looks and hair. Reina is just boss in all aspects of being a great Musume member. I hope she sticks around long enough to be the leader. She would be an amazing leader. Reina for leader! I start the campaign now!
1. Mitsui Aika
There are no words I can say about Mitsui that wouldn't make you all hate me. For me Mitsui is the next Tsuji. I mean she has so much character and is so respectful to her older members as well as being so cute. I know a lot of fans don't like her because of her looks which is really shallow. She has an amazing voice as well as really good dance powers. If there is one thing I can say is that 8th gen has a really good dance base if they out to be there own group. I collect things Mitsui because she is will be one of the bests of Musume like Yossie you just wait and see!
