    How could I not see how complimentary you were in that previous post. Just like how you weren't being insulting when you wrote that SSK post about Sasshi, Sae and Kaotan being underserving of their rankings, right? :rolleyes: Maybe it was you describing it being "B.S." and a "pathetic excuse" for a victory that threw me off. :D Sorry if I misjudged your backhanded compliments.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS to this topic. *pulls on her gloves* I think this will be the first countdown ever where I explain my votes just because this is my favorite topic ever!



    10) Takada Shiori
    Purely because she's gorgeous and I looooved her hair and her husky voice. I'm a little sad her dream didn't take off but at least she seems to be crushing the world of Etsy.
    9) Hirata Rikako
    Can't not have the first captain of my favorite team on here. Rikki was a good leader, a great den mother, and a total dork.
    8) Sato Seira
    Although her aggressive sexiness drew most of the attention, she was a really good performer and I loved that despite her intense focus she never took herself too seriously.
    7) Oya Masana
    Our delicate leggy loli-hunting snow princess is in my eyes the heart and soul of SKE!
    6) Yagami Kumi
    She had everything needed to be a perfect classic idol, but with an air of mystery and a bit of sardonic wit that made her so interesting.
    5) Deguchi Aki
    Beautiful voice+pervy sense of humor=A+ combination.
    4) Nakanishi Yuka
    I loved her voice, her slyness and her otoppoi-to-the-extreme chara, and although she was much maligned, she had a truly tender heart and showed great compassion for other members.
    3) Kuwabara Mizuki
    Mizuki was everything. Killer at MCs, amazing dancer, fantastic mentor to newer members, and all-around hilarious.
    2) Matsui Rena
    Although there are members in this list I personally like more than Rena, she deserves nothing less than top two here (and I'm pretty sure she'll win 1st in this).
    1) Matsui Jurina
    I probably don't need to explain this one. My first oshimen, my only oshimen, the driving force behind my SKE bias. Your fave could never, etc etc etc.

    Tbh, I don't know the first gen super well, so this is just based on stuff I looked into via old vids and such and I prob would have been a fan of these girls back then. But most I was able to appreciate even if it was only for a short while~

    I don't know why you are bringing up posts I made several weeks ago or why you are comparing it to the one I made about Wasamin. I already said that the judges didn't give a valid reason for why Yuka lost and this is what I considered pathetic. What I find BS is how they couldn't explain what Wasamin did better. Both of these points upset me.

    Anyway, I have no idea what you are trying to imply about the "usual suspects". I have no idea who they are or what makes them usual. Your sarcasm is a bit disappointing, because I'm being completely honest. Wouldn't it be better if we stop continuing this conversation though? I was complaining about something that happened three years ago. That can't be changed right? No point continuing especially when this topic is now on SKE 1st gen members. Besides, the whole "revenge" thing was a lighthearted joke. I'm just happy she finally got first place in something. For the record, I was hoping for Wasamin to rank in this year's sousenkyo and I'm disappointed that she didn't.

    About Yuttan/Masuda Yuka, I think she is very very talented and has an amazing range. But I remember back in that competition, the criticism given to her was that she had all the skills and technicalities but lacked the emotional connection to the song etc. Lack of feelings etc. And perhaps everyone interprets it differently but I do agree with that. I think Wasamin displays more emotion in her singing. And I wouldn't underestimate her enka singing. Imo, it's one of the hardest genres to tackle in Japanese music, and the fact that she is actually selling quite well and technically isn't even an AKB senbatsu member says a lot about herself.

    For example, when Yuka did Mushi no Ballad, everything in it in terms of vocal technicalities was point on, but there was a lack of emotional connection to the song like you just couldn't feel it from her. Actually, lots of girls who do Mushi no Ballad are the same; where their vocals are really good but then you can't feel their feelings in the song when it's meant to be really intense. And that's why it's so hard to match Akimoto Sayaka's original rendition.

    However, that being said, when I saw Yuka's recent performance of Stargazer at AKB Request Hour 2015, I was really blown away because she has improved so much with her emoting and expressiveness which was something she used to lack in. So I'm glad for her
