Q1. Who is your favourite H!P member (including OGs)?
7 votes: Michishige Sayumi
4 votes: Takahashi Ai, Tanaka Reina, Sayashi Riho
3 votes: Niigaki Risa, Yajima Maimi, Suzuki Airi, Okai Chisato, Kudo Haruka
I don't think it comes as a surprise that the names that pop up most often are basically the spearheads of the Platinum and Colourful Era. The majority of the current members got interested in joining the idol bandwagon as those eras were running their course.
Another interesting observation is the drift in generations.
For example, it's basically BeriKyuu who are mentioning Golden Era members.
The next level of H!P members after them generally picked names from Platinum Era.
And you have a smattering of Colourful Era names from the young 'uns.
Interestingly enough, the youngest person to get picked was actually Kobushi's Nomura Minami, with two votes to boot. When these questions were being answered, Kobushi had only been around for about a year and a half.
Note that the question is 'favourite member' rather than 'member I admire', which means that it's possible to pick friends e.g. Maimi picking Chinami.
The second youngest member to be named is the less surprising Kudo Haruka, who was already a 5-year veteran when this book was released.
Fukuchan also talked about the generational drift within H!P at around 9 minutes into the following (subtitled) video.
Yajima Maimi: Tokunaga Chinami. Since we've been friends since we joined H!P ♪
Even though she's studying abroad, she gives me calls and all sorts of updates (>Ɐ<*)
Suzuki Airi: Takahashi Ai-san. I like her, and I admire her!! I strongly admire her ♥
I'll eternally admire her!!
Fukumura Mizuki: Kamei Eri-san. I admire everything about her! We've never had activities together as part of Morning Musume。, so I've only watched her as a fan, and she's a senpai from whom I've learnt a lot.
Tsugunaga Momoko-san. Tsugunaga-san was the person who first turned me into a fan, and I also respect how serious she is when it comes to work.
: ℃-ute's Nakajima Saki-san and Country Girls' Inaba Manaka-chan! In my mind, the two of them are perfect fits for the idol image, they're always cute. I love them! They're my top 2 ♪
: Michishige Sayumi-san ♥ She's the cutest in the world, in the Universe, and she's really nice...♥ I'll eternally admire her.
: Kobushi Factory's Nomura Minami-chan. She's cute ♥ I like Nomusan. It's cute how she immediately juts out her chin when she gets teased about it.
: ℃-ute's Yajima Maimi-san is whom I like and admire. I love how she's serious and sweet!
℃-ute's Nakajima Saki-san is whom I like as an idol. I like how flexibly she expresses herself. No matter what, I couldn't pick a single person. Sorry...
Kanazawa Tomoko: ℃-ute's Suzuki Airi-san. I'll forever admire that beautiful singing voice. I also like how her facial expressions change so much depending on the song.
Takagi Sayuki: Tanaka Reina-san. Since I've liked her from way back. Her individuality is cute.
And her butt is cute as well.
Miyamoto Karin: Niigaki Risa-san. She's someone I admire. Whatever it is, she does things properly and with all her might. She also treats her kouhai equally.
I really love her.
Tsugunaga Momoko: Yasuda Kei-san ♥ The legendary teasable character that continues to be loved by everyone!! Her overpowering perfume is lovely as well ♥ (laughs)
Ozeki Mai: Juice=Juice's Miyamoto Karin-san! As 'The Idol', she always makes my heart skip a beat ♥
: Takahashi Ai-san! ♥ Singing, dancing, expression, I admire everything about her!
Among the current members, it's definitely got to be Juice=Juice's Miyamoto Karin-san ♥
Fujii Rio: ℃-ute's Yajima Maimi-san. If I started talking about what makes her attractive, I'd quickly run out of space to answer. So I'll just touch on the contrast between her airheadedness and her beautiful looks & heart.
Hamaura Ayano: Country Girls' Tsugunaga Momoko-san! I think that it's cool how Tsugunaga-san was able to produce herself. I really like her since I think that she's perfect as an idol.
Taguchi Natsumi: ℃-ute's Suzuki Airi-san. There'd be no end if I started talking about what I like about her, but she's really nice, she's really cute, she's so cute no matter what she does. Also, I think that she's gotten really funny recently!! Her singing and dancing are the best as well!!
Yamagishi Riko: Kobushi Factory's Nomura Minami-chan. She possess things that I don't, and we also get along as we both go at our own pace at times. She's a contemporary who's precious to me. I'd like us to always be friends who stimulate one another.
Tanimoto Ami: ℃-ute's Suzuki Airi-san.
Since she's got a good figure, her face is really cute, and she's stylish.
I like her singing and dancing as well.
: Shimizu Saki-san ♥ Since she's really nice, yet there are facets to her that where she's professionally intense.
