43. Chisaki Morito
43. Koharu Kusumi

This was incredibly hard.
Most of the time I have a certain ranking in my head, and my top 8 seem to be accurate (I just couldn't kick out Yossy after all the years). But in general there's different emotions among them, as in - do I really like Homatan more than Yaguchi? Or is it because I haven't cared for Yaguchi in years? But who brought me more joy in the group?
After a short check it seems to be mostly correct though. Of course... Asuka could be higher, Takahashi seems to be a bit too high, how the heck did Mei and Rio end up above Yuko? lol Masaki and Mizuki seem unfair, but at the same time I didn't really enjoy them that much in MM (though if I did this manually I'd definitely put Masaki higher). Takahashi (gotta pick her up again) probably ended up that high because of her current releases with Reina and Miyabi, by the time she graduated I was so glad she was gone, but well, times change.

I might do another sorter later, but this is it for now.

Mine has changed a bit in the last few years, mainly due to Yossi's DUI controversy nuking a lot of my love for her (but not all of it) and also I stopped following MM during Takahashi's reign as leader until 9th gen joined, so I kind of blew through those choices for the girls whose voices I'm not as familiar with.

A lot of my choices were nostalgia triggered too, seeing a MM22 member against someone like Rika who I didn't love at the time just had me feeling like "I MISS YOU IN MM SO MUCH!!!"

Here’s mine! I wanted the pretty ranker :lol:

The only big comment I have is that Koharu is probably the only person in the D box that I dislike, the others I’m pretty much neutral or just don’t know/care a lot about.

39. Linlin
40. Morito Chisaki
41. Mitsui Aika
42. Junjun
43. Ogata Haruna
44. Kusumi Koharu

This was less difficult than I thought it'd be. The top 5 and bottom 5 were foregone conclusions, and I'm not surprised by much in between. Kamei ended up higher than I would've expected and Maria landing in the top 25 is classic recency bias, but when I look at each member by their general position on the list rather than relative to other members, everything looks right. I judged using DJ's metric of "who brought me more joy in the group?"

I tried to kind of envision my last 20 or so years when making this list. I would have totally not even added Hitomi if it wasn't for the fact I enjoyed her personality in Morning and she brought a lot of humor to the group which I appreciated.


Best Girls - Kago and Oda are my top two, but Miki, Eri and Kanon get top billing too because they were just as important to me.
Post Kago, Miki, Eri and Kanon where who held me onto Morning.

All Around Favorites - Girls whom I grew to like, but haven't given me that OSHI spark that usually happens.

Loved Talent They Brought - They brought a special something to Morning which I appreciated but again, no oshi sparks flying.

Mood Makers - They make me happy with their personality, but singing, they don't catch me as much. Some girls more than others. (Still holding on Mei to move up in my ranks, which, if she sticks around, probably will end up in All Around Favorites.

Like but not Like Like - They were girls I liked, or like, but for whatever reason never really moved from the middle of the pack. Homare still has a shock of moving up. :ph34r:

Don't Care for them Much - Mostly full of girls I just never really got to know, so they are in limbo. And then there's Tsuji and Maria. Meh. They are nice enough but just not for me.

Like, but not dislike - I just don't like them in Morning , but I have no hard feelings for them. They have great personality.

Bottom-I wont hate, but I wont like either.

Was really weirded out by the pic the had for LinLin tbh.
Risa's haircut looks terrible! I wonder if that's the reason she is so low...
Except for Ayumi, Mizuki and Erina, all the "orange background" ones were literal whos to me. :lol:
I would not rate Mari, Sakura and Sayaka so low, but I think it ranked it so low since I just did "tie" for all the orange middle ones.
