  • Nikkei Entertainment Releases Its Top 20 Girl Group Ranking for 2015

    Every year, Nikkei Entertainment magazine releases its “Talent Power Ranking” lists. There are several lists for things such as actors, musicians, athletes, and so on, as well as an overall Top 100 ranking. These lists are created from surveys that are conducted by an independent marketing research firm earlier in the year. They assign a “talent power score” to each entity. This score is based on 2 things: familiarity (the number of survey respondents able to recognize the entity by name and face) and interest level (the number of survey respondents saying that they’d like to see/hear/know more about the entity).

    With that being said, we now have the ranking for the top 20 girl groups. Perfume retains their spot at the top. The top 4 actually is the same as 2014, with Momoiro Clover Z, AKB48, and E-girls trailing Perfume, respectively. This year also sees BABYMETAL debuting on the list, with Team Syachihoko, Dempagumi.inc, and Juice=Juice cracking the top 20.
