Nakai is not exactly cheap ;)

hmmm well AKB girls have these contracts but i doubt that they are individual, most likely some of the contracts that they have are joint with others so you cannot really say that they have the endorsements exclusively theirs ~ In how many commercials does Tomomi appear on her own without any other AKB girls to support? lol ~
Aya and mana have the same.
Takei emi lost a contract apparently, and didn't becky have 13 last year -can't remember-

I always wonder why Ishikawa Ryo is so popular. Personally, I wish Japan would Stan the flawless gymnast prince Kohei Uchimura instead.

i think it's because he's quite like an ikemen? :) and maybe his achievements have made Japan really proud

akb48 dominating females ranking

so good.

Total contract price-wise, I wonder who're on top?
stole_away 14th-Dec-2012 01:45 am (UTC)
contract price-wise, I doubt AKB will be at the top, since their earnings are split among so many members, but hey, Mana & Aya & Becky are still on the list so yay~~
