"Favorite among 10 years old
#4 Porno Graffitti"

I'm sorry I just have to laugh
yukkiz 1st-Nov-2012 05:39 am (UTC)
Lol ,this year their ranking is up because they get supporting from teens
I don't know too why they have much supporting from teens
lolufailhard 1st-Nov-2012 05:33 am (UTC)
YASSSS hikki slaying even though she hasn't been active for a few years now. I need that comeback tho...
yay for Namie and Exile too
asaphira_sachi 1st-Nov-2012 05:53 am (UTC)
Aww my bbs. ♥ And thanks for the chart. I'm giggling they went from unknown(2004) -> below 50th (2005) -> unknown(2006), and then skyrocketed.

PS: OP why are ikimono gakari and MisuChiru not tagged?

proud to be an Arashi fan! <3
ladyana2j 7th-Nov-2012 06:46 pm (UTC)
well, I am kinda surprise cause akb48 down from 11th to 13th.. I think they would be like in top 5 since their popularity seem to be getting bigger...

Edited at 2012-11-07 07:11 pm (UTC)
sakana93 1st-Nov-2012 06:15 am (UTC)
Yay Spitz is higher than last year
And idk why Misuchiru 's position never changes even if they are active or not o__O
yukkiz 1st-Nov-2012 09:05 am (UTC)
Yeah , i think so..i don't understand why Misuchiru always stays at No.3 !!

I love most of the artist on the list <3

And LOL sakumoto,no hands over each other?
exdream1999 1st-Nov-2012 12:41 pm (UTC)
Sakumoto can never touch, if they did the universe would implode, such is their tragic fate.

exdream1999 1st-Nov-2012 12:46 pm (UTC)
It's so weird that when I moved to Japan in '07 Arashi was ranked 15th and Hikki was 1st.

I'd really love to see the full list for that year.

If MSte has taught me anything, it's that rankings are AWESOME!!
ohprecioustime 1st-Nov-2012 12:51 pm (UTC)
Japan's taste remains basic, ugh Ikimono Gakari is like the most basic shittiest trio ever, never got their hype
