AKB/Idol Ranker 2018

Okay, I think that ancient ranker I had up on this page was here long enough.  Aside from Wasamin being on top of it, it really doesn’t represent who I like in AKB these days at all.  I mean some of those girls graduated like 4-5 years ago.  Anyway, since there is no “ranker” that I know of that lists the girls in an official way, and can be transported to this blog, I will merely list my “Top 5” members in each 48-group, and some of my other favorite idols…
