    well that’s for sure, being in AKB ( and well popular member) is practically a guarantee you are on TV almost every day. The public knows you and see what are you doing every day ( for example Mariko’s twitter was really funny to see when she was in AKB now is kind of boring ) honestly I have no idea what is with her these days.

    That ex AKB girls are not in the list is normal, but what about Mayuyu, Takamina and Yukirin, they always were in this kind of list. I remember when even 6 or 7 AKB girls ranked here during 2010 ~ 2012 ahhh old and beautiful times.

      I don’t think i’ve seen solo CMs of Mayuyu/Takamina this year. It’s always Paruru/Kojiharu. Yukirin has a solo CM recently but i don’t think she has enough to make it amongst the top.

    Looks like the real entertainment world is very different for them when they don’t have AKB to support them. Even Acchan struggles to make her mark as an actress and solo singer. She lives off her reputation as the former AKB ace.I’m curious to know how well Yuko will fare and how long super popular AKB members like Mayu/Jurina/Yuki, etc will last in this business once they graduate.

      In a few years’ time, we’re gonna see a newspaper run a “Where are they now?”
