As some of you may know from my twitter account and various Facebook postings, I recently conducted a poll to see which member of Hello! Project Kenshuusei was most wanted in the 13th generation of Morning Musume. There were a total of 321 responses, and respondents were allowed to vote for more than one Kenshuusei. I won’t belabor the point much; so here are the results
As you can see, the runaway leader in this poll was 20th generation member Danbara Ruru with 176 votes (54.8% of respondents). The top four were rounded out with Kiyono Momohime (199 votes, 37.1%), Takase Kurumi (97 votes, 30.2%), and Ichioka Reina (93 votes, 29%).
My personal picks for 13th generation are Danbara Ruru, Kawamura Ayano, Kiyono Momohime, and Takase Kurumi with longtime members Ichioka Reina and Kaga Kaede barely missing the cut.
Then again, I don’t have a great record for predicting new generations of Morning Musume, so I wouldn’t be surprised if none of my picks make it.
So who will be the 13th Generation? We will all find out very, VERY soon!
