Jin has put some serious efforts into this set of 2009 rankers, with plenty of cool graphics to boot. The first post focuses on the best of AKB and H!P all rolled together. Wow, we really get to see where Jin’s feelings lie with these two rival idol stables. Actually, it is as neutral a ranker as I have ever seen, although you can see he is a bit partial to Buono! and AKB. But I am too, so that’s cool. I am also happy to see a special award going to Manoeri. I am still not a huge fan, but she is growing on me. It’s that cute smile. I was surprised to see who he voted as “biggest flop”
Next is K-pop, where 2Ne1 and 2pm dominate the rankings. I didn’t know 2NE1 had grown so big in such a short time. As far as J-pop, it looks as if Jin actually does like the new album from alan, along with Kalafina and KOKIA she shows well in the rankings. Knowing what I know about these artists (which isn’t a whole lot, but oh well) Jin really focuses on the overall singing quality. KOKIA and Kalafina are excellent vocalists!
For the final post Jin goes over the the highs and lows of Hello! Project in 2009, with a seperate section for each and every group. Jin also gives a forecast on what to expect from each group in 2010. Overall this is a great set of posts, and well worth the read.
