AKB48 Member of the Year 2009 Poll Results Announced!
January 17, 2010

Today, the outcome of the member ranking poll has been posted!  The two previous years have been hosted by Stage48 administrator Kyobu, but this time forum member Naomi graciously decided to put on the annual festivities.

Full Results on Stage48!

Each participant was granted ten votes to vote positively towards their favorites, with each of those ten votes assigned a different point value.  Also, each participant was given five votes to vote negatively towards their least favorites in order to more successfully gage the general consensus of each member.  All members of AKB48, SKE48, and SDN48, as well as all of their Research Students, Unders, and graduated members were on the ballots, with the only rule that they must have been in their group in 2009, which means anyone who graduated before last year wasn’t allowed to be voted for.

The full ranking posted is out of 107 girls, with the girls who didn’t have any votes for or against them not included.  I posted some interesting numbers below.

10. Ohori Megumi (+170/-2) 168

Not terrible if you ask me!  Maybe she’ll do better next year!

For the past three years, Stage48.net has been hosting a ranking based on the members of AKB48 and its sister groups.  Last year the Nihongogo forum was also invited to participate, giving a broader range of opinions.  Now that Hello! Online has made an AKB48 forum, maybe it will be included in the 2010 ranking?

RSL’s AKB48 Complete Ranking (as of December 2, 2008)
December 5, 2008

Since ‘Where’s Natsuki?’ is more than just a Sato Natsuki worship blog (or, that’s the idea), I’m going for a more AKB48-centric style for the next set of posts.

I’m doing an AKB48 ranking.  I know, it’s hard.  I’ll be listing them in sets of eight, from my least favorite to… Natsuki… sorry to give away the surprise.  Also, I’m giving brief discriptions/reasons for my ranking of the girl at that number.  I’m actually going to attempt to not be as politically correct as I usually am… just because I think it’s more interesting to read.  I’ll try to not censor myself as much.

As a special note, I’ll be including Kohara Haruka and Ishida Haruka in the ranking.  Currently, AKB48 is down to 46 members, and there are two open positions on Team A.  While I love Oya Shizuka to pieces (she subbed for both Sato Natsuki and former second favorite AKB48 member Nakanishi Rina), both these girls are more probable to be on Team A than Oya.

Mixi Results
November 30, 2008

Jasey of Stage48 posted a Mixi ranking of AKB48 made by a 2ch user.  As of the first of November this year, Sato Natsuki is the thirty-third (33) most popular member of AKB48.  That sucks.

The ranking and my thoughts of this tragedy…
