With over 13 years in the biz, it's no surprise that the remaining members of the Kids make up nearly all the top vote-getters. One Morning Musume。 OG managed to sneak in, but given the short timing between her graduation announcement and execution, it's possible that some of them didn't know that she would be an OG when they answered.

Note that some of the members mention ℃-ute as a whole rather than a specific member. I count those as a vote for all five members individually, but if they're removed, we still have Airi at the top spot, Momo at second, and third being shared by Maimi, Chisato, and RihoRiho.

So where do we go post-℃-ute? After the awesomeness that is Momochi-senpai, Duu and Karin-chan look to be the frontrunners for whom the next generation will look up to. Hopefully they've settled whatever history they had between them.

Translations of selected answers

Yajima Maimi: Tsugunaga Momoko!! It's cool how strong she is inside! In Country Girls, it's no surprise that she's a good oneesan

Suzuki Airi: The member I respect is Tsugunaga Momoko-chan, Momochi! Momo's, I guess you would call it professionalism or professional temperament, it always surprises me (T^T) ♥

Fukumura Mizuki: Tsugunaga Momoko-san. I think that leading a group is really tough, yet Tsugunaga-san energetically entertains everyone with a constant smile on her face. She truly is amazing, she truly is strong. For me, I admire her, and she's also like my hero ♥

Sato Masaki: All of ℃-ute. As Morning Musume。´16, I'd like to do my best in order to overtake ℃-ute!

Tsugunaga Momoko: Since I'm the eldest sister, I've become a person to be admired ♥ I'm so popular that it's problematic ♥♥

Yamaki RisaMomochi-senpai. While I do respect her singing, she’s serious when it comes to talking, and then there's the way she thinks while incorporating whatever she can see nearby. She always amazes me, and I hope to catch up to her soon. You’d expect no less from her ability to hook people in and close the distance.

Inaba Manaka: Suzuki Airi-san. Everything about her is perfect, I want to be Suzuki-san!!! Sayashi Riho-san. Her dancing, singing, and expressions are wonderful. She's so cute and cool, I admire her both as a person and as an idol.

Yanagawa Nanami: Miyamoto Karin-san. She's good at singing and dancing, and each and every one of her gestures is extremely cute... For me, she's the 'perfect idol'. I respect her, she's my goal ♪

Funaki MusubuMiyamoto Karin-san!! I love her clear singing and cool facial expressions.

Hirose Ayaka: Fukuda Kanon-sa... Ikuta Erina-san. Her expressions are cool, she's really gentle, she's cute, and she's got a good figure... ♥ I really admire her ♥

Hamaura Ayano: Tsugunaga Momoko-san. The way she produces herself is perfect, so I'd like to learn from her example. I also respect her since her singing is strong and cool.

Kishimoto Yumeno: Tsugunaga Momoko-san. She's good at telling stories and making them funny. Her singing can be cool or cute or gentle depending on the song, and I've seen her earnestly teaching people. I respect everything about her.
