First here are top 7 members voted in for the Shuffle group:
From top to bottom, left to right the members are in order from highest vote getter. Gakisan and Kamei dominated the polls but the race for the top spot was extremely close here in particular as amazingly they ended up being only separated by a single vote. Junjun also received lots of votes as the top 3 vote getters here really were in a league of their own when viewing the voting numbers as a whole. This truly would be an amazing shuffle group as you have a strong vocal presence combined with cute. But also just the thought of Momo and Mikitty working together = XD! Helium meets brute force! 🙂 And members Junjun and Chisatochan so deserving of more attention. The dynamics in personality would be most welcome as well and the one member that I personally would have added to this party would have been in incomparable Yukosan. 😀 Ah a reunion of Yukosan and Kyamei…what could be better and once Yuko gets a load of Momo…all bets are off for good behavior! XD
I also wanted to include what would be the next two shuffle groups following the next highest vote getters. The second tier shuffle group would include these members as voted by you:
This second unit looks like a nice blend of Momusu, Berryz Koubou and C-ute and it's nice to see Erikachan and Chiichan getting some fan support. Vocally this group would be quite interesting as well with such vocal variety including Maimichan, Miya, Aichan, and Reinachan in particular as theirs are notably distinct. The strongest personality here would have to be Reinachan's so I'd appoint her leader by default…no offense to Aichan of course whom I adore very much!
The third tier of vote getters would round out our final shuffle group for 2008:
Surprisingly Ayaya makes a quite late entrance as I really thought she'd rank much higher alongside Mikitty if for nothing else her top vocals in H!P….and beauty of course! But better late than never and this unit may be the most interesting or strangest of them all. Ayaya will bring the vocals, Sayu the cute, Sakichan…solid vocals and leadership, Nacchi…distinct vocals…warm mentoring and pure joy, Maimai will do battle with Sayu in a cute-off of gigantic proportions..watch out! :P, Maasa will help glue it all together with her unique brand of warmth and humor, and Konkon strong vocals…adorableness..and an amazing mind!
Happily every member in the shuffle group poll received multiple votes and here are the remaining members in order: Sugaya Risako, Linlin, Mitsui Aika, Arihara Kanna, Ishikawa Rika, Kusumi Koharu, Nakjima Saki, and Kumai Yurina.
And now here are the results from the "dream" group poll:
Gakisan once again dominated the voting and not even Kamei could keep up towards the end of voting. What's interesting about this super dream group cumulatively voted on by fans is that with the one exception of Ayaya, every member past or present is a member of Momusu which perhaps indicates their dominance in fan affection when the whole of Hello! Project is looked at. After all the goal with this poll was to determine which ten members out of the whole of H!P would fans see as the best members to include in a "dream" unit of their own…cumulatively though. The poll included all 52 H!P members who have been active in music releases (including Eggs) so the results here really show the 10 members who hold substantial fan bases within the whole of H!P. Again Junjun shows up very impressively in the top 5 deeply beloved members Marippe and Nono make high appearances as well. I'm so happy to see Ayaya make the top group here as well as her showing in the "shuffle group" results were a bit low in my opinion. When it comes to H!P I think that any "super"group should by default include Ayaya…my personal opinion though. 🙂 Mikitty may be on a pretty low key level right now…but most of that I suspect is UFA holding her back though for her past defiance of them which was done so publicly….I do applaud her for standing up for herself though…. XD but here it really shows how her low visibilty hasn't hurt her fan base at all as she received a high number of votes making the top group as well. 🙂 So happy to see Kamei in the second spot in both polls as only Gakisan could keep her out of the top spot…twice! Gakisan = ♥
And to show how the rest of the voting went here are the next two 10 member "dream" groups as voted for here starting with vote getters 11-20:
Yuko and Rika together again…Charmy & the tirades just about to begin! XD Just like old times!! 🙂 Lets see Konkon and Makochan too…almost the entire classic newscast is here! Talk about personality dynamics!!! The tier two "dream" group is overflowing with diverse personality goodness. Fiesty Reinachan, wacky Makochan, fiery Yukosan…add in Charmy and stir in "helium"…I mean Momo adorableness…slowly! XD But seriously all ten members would be a dream to see them work together…the only change I'd make? Add in an Egg for good measure so that Yukosan can mold (scare)…no I mean mentor them! 😛
And lastly here's the fan voted tier 3 "dream" group (top votes received, members 21-30):
At last Nacchi, Nocchi, Koharu, Kanna, and Manoeri make an appearance. I'm also a bit surprised to see Maimichan appear so far down just making the cut for the third level group. And no offense to Keisan but….Keisan > Nacchi?! O__o Nice to see Kannachan sneak in there too in the last spot and Kikkawa Yuu also received a decent number of votes as well. 🙂 Now is this hypothetical group strange or interesting or what?!! I don't know what to say. It's such an unusual combination of members. Hey it could work! And at least we know there would be a lot of excitement with Kohachan present…thank goodness she made at least one unit!! XD Nocchi + Nacchi + Maimichan = 幸せ。
A great stat for the "dream" group poll is that 51 out of the 52 H!P members on the ballot received multiple votes with Korenaga Miki being the only exception here. I would have loved to have seen her receive votes as well but with so many members to choose from I think it's a great showing to have nearly everyone included. Here's the rest of the members who received votes from high to low following the 3 "dream" groups listed above: Mitsui Aika, Shimizu Saki, Kumai Yurina, Okada Yui, Iida Kaori, Miyoshi Erika, Nakajima Saki, Sugaya Risako, Hagiwara Mai, Linlin, Inaba Atsuko, Kitahara Sayaka, Maeda Yuuka, Satoda Mai, Murata Megumi, Saito Hitomi, Maeda Yuki, Ohtani Masae, Shibata Ayumi, Sawada Yuri, Sengoku Minami, and someone even added Aibon to the ballot! 🙂
This is the first time that I've tried to gather a consensus of which members in the whole of Hello! Project hold substantial fan bases and along with that just which combinations of members would fans find most attractive and fruitful. Hopefully these results will shine some light upon those topics…well at least in this little corner of the blogosphere. Thank you again to everyone who helped to make these "dream" group polls a success! ^-^
