Over at Paul Thomas’ excellent Hello!Blog there’s a poll running at the moment where you can choose from the many groups and soloists who is your favourite top 10 members in H!P. For some it will take a while pondering and to select their favourites but for me it didn’t take that long. Here’s my selection below:
I think I’ve told my reasons in a previous post why Mikitty is no.1. Some people love her, some people hate her – she’s always been her own person and speaks her mind. She’s just honest and that’s another reason why I love her. Let’s not forget that she’s got a great singing voice too!
Sayu at no.2 is not only cute but she’s deceivingly intelligent with a good sense of humour. I like girls with humour. Her singing voice is improving a bit judging by her solo track on MM’s Platinum 9 album.
I’ll quickly go through the rest: Airi and Maimi have been my top duo in C-ute so they had to be in my top 10. Mano Erina is the top soloist in H!P right now and she is just so adorable. Risako is my only pick from Berryz. Yossie is an old fave from her MM days (when she was a comedy genius) and Mari is the woman that got me interested in H!P in the first place all those years ago so I’ve always had a soft spot for her. Rounding off the top 10 at no.9 is JunJun with her love for bananas and her deadpan humour and lastly the beautiful Aya Matsuura. I just haven’t been a fan of her past 3 albums I’m sorry to say (slow, plodding and dull) but I really liked her first couple of albums.
It’ll be interesting to see the results of the poll when it comes out.
