i think this list is okay except for AKB. why must FLYING GET??? KAZE WA FUITEIRU is way better. Is it because of the sale?? i don’t know..anyway, i think this year will be exciting because new winner will be announced since EXILE won the last three years.

how much i love AKB, i think it’s hard for them to win this.why?first, they are an idol group and their songs is composed by other people.second, just look at the song. Flying Get??? ok.i admit the song is addictive but i don’t think it’s good compared to KazeFu. they might win this if it KazeFu. third, the list itself. JUJU, KANA, FMB etc. most of the artists on the list composed their own songs.

but, i’m still happy for them for the nominated. ^^ if they can win this, it will be epic!!AKB ganbare!!!
