    • hohum

      nice to see a bunch of the other johnny’s groups rising on this list, but why are shori and fuma included in this list when they weren’t even in the top 30 soaring johnny’s list?

      • Reileen

        Nikkei is confused lol
        But they’d be populating this list if merged so I guess it’s better that way

      • Music

        Nikkei has deemed Shori and Fuma the true musicians amongst them Johnnys

    • What

      13. Iwata Takanori: +4.4 (from 17.4 to 21.8)
      What??? And not even 3JSB, but just him alone??

      Sasshi and Shirashi Mai are that popular huh?

      • PigeonPop

        Mai Shiraishi’s photobook was a smash in terms of sales, so that helps.

        Sasshi is just on another level for an idol atm when it comes to having both public recognition and constant TV work. She was #4 on the list of total TV appearances by a female tarento in 2016, and only has one real competitor–Ruriko Kojima–in her age group. H!P had the public recognition part down during its peak but was never able to convert individual members to industry mainstays. Yaguchi I feel came really close but blew it with the closet+cheating scandal. Sasshi more or less took her spot as the go-to-girl for variety shows, and furthered her career by having the opportunity to co-/host (and be good at it).

      • circe154

        Maybe the Ace Attorney anime was a hit?
