While I’m in much need of updating my list of AKB48 member favorites (I’ve also included my just second AKB48♥ member ranking below), dating back to the my love for Momusu, a fun pastime of mine over the years has been to periodically make note of my favorite members with these often painstaking difficult to create lists whether it be for a favorite band or idol group. I really wish I had started making these back in January 1998 when I first purchased their debut single but my earliest list is dated October 25, 2002 and for many years I’d kept updating them until about 2007. I think it’s great to be able to look back on these to see the way it was at various points of their lineup as Momusu’s history has had so many memorable and talented girls over the years move on through the group as idols will always inevitably grow up and move on…. not to mention the occasional “scandal” as a reasoning for an untimely departure.
Aichan’s never been lower than #3 and had been my #1 dating back to 2004 upon Nacchi’s graduation from the group. And as the world of Momusu keeps turning over the years, here are my Momusu member ranking lists throughout those awesome early years!!:

And this final list was created using graphics, courteously of Paul Thomas’ Hello! Blog~ ^^. Sorry it’s so tiny as I can’t seem to find the original file.
And here’s my second AKB48 member ranking!! (the first one would be like Woh!? =O) LOL please don’t give me too much of a hard time as I was still learning about the group, its members and songs as my fandom was still in its rather infant stages as of the time I made this list =P. I did have a lot of it right though with Yuko, Mayuyu, Miichan, A~amin, Tomochin, Takamina, Yukirin, Myao and Kitarie all ranking in the top tier ^^. But in my defense I had yet to fall in love with Sasshi and of course there’s a post here which documents that day of realizing and falling in love with her personality and general awesomeness!~! =P….
The following ranking was done on June 21st, 2010:
I last did an updated AKB48 member ranking on June 25th, 2012 as if you’re curious you can check it out under the “member rankings” category.
And as Aichan had long dominated as being my most favorite girl of Momusu, here’s a way back look as Hello! Project’s Digital Photo book #28 which featured none other than the every~lovely Aichan as it was then released in four separate volumes…
