Oricon: who do you want to wake you up?
Mon, June 25, 2007 (6:06pm EDT)
A new Oricon survey asked 900 men and women in their 20s to 40s, "Which celebrity would you want to wake you up in the morning?"

At the top of the women's list was eternal heartthrob Masaharu Fukuyama. He was followed in order by Teppei Koike, Koichi Domoto, Takuya Kimura, and Junichi Okada.

Meanwhile, men preferred actress Masami Nagasawa, who outranked Yukie Nakama, Megumi Yasu, and Ayumi Hamasaki. Saki Aibu, Aya Ueto, and Manami Konishi had a three-way tie for fifth place.

The order in the overall rankings was: Fukuyama, Nagasawa, Koike, Domoto, Kimura, Nakama and Okada (tied for 6th), Hamasaki, Yasu and Tomohisa Yamashita (tied for 9th).

Oricon: best tanned look
Thu, August 2, 2007 (6:32pm EDT)
Oricon has published the results of another summer-related survey. 2,000 men and women were asked to name the celebrities they felt were well-suited for a tanned look.

The #1 female was pro beach volleyball player Miwa Asao. Not far behind were Kumi Koda and Chinatsu Wakatsuki. The rest of the list: Namie Amuro, Tomoko Nakajima, Rikako Murakami, Yukie Nakama, Galsone, Yu Yamada, and Saki Aibu. The selection of Nakama is the most surprising, as the actress has rarely been seen with a tan.

In the male category, Mocomichi Hayami was the overwhelming favorite. Kenji Sakaguchi came in second, while third-ranked Shigeru Matsuzaki proved that even men in their fifties can look good with a tan. The other top choices were Takuya Kimura, Mikihisa Azuma, Tatsuya Yamaguchi, Tsuyoshi Shinjo, Masaru Nagai, Masahiro Nakai, and Shingo Katori.

Oricon: summer hairstyles
Thu, August 2, 2007 (5:55pm EDT)
Following up on its research about summer fashion, Oricon conducted a survey to see which celebrity hairstyles people want to copy this summer.

Among women, the number one answer was Maki Horikita, who has adopted a short, boyish look for her role in the "Hanazakari no Kimitachi e" drama series. Second choice was Kumi Koda, followed by Yuri Ebihara, Masami Nagasawa, and Namie Amuro.

Meanwhile, men are trying to take after the "fresh" look of Satoshi Tsumabuki. He was favored over even Takuya Kimura, who ranked second. Hiroshi Tamaki and Joe Odagiri tied for third, with Masaharu Fukuyama ending up at #5.

I've got some surveys here some recent ones and some older ones. Most of them are one or two day votes and all are 1000 plus voters which are significant.

While I have to say it might be geared towards youngsters, the last poll definitely is not only under 19 who answered. Many of them are in the 20's -40's. Obviously both guys and girls continue to think that Junichi Okada is way up there.

Nakama's still the CM queen
Fri, August 10, 2007 (4:30am EDT)
Video Research Ltd. has published its mid-year report on TV commercials, which includes a section measuring celebrities' exposure. On top of the list is actress Yukie Nakama, continuing her streak as "CM queen" since 2005.

In the Kanto region, Nakama had a total of 6,175 commercial broadcasts, adding up to more than 1,600 minutes on the air. By comparison, second-ranked Satoshi Tsumabuki had just under 5,000 broadcasts. Takuya Kimura was #3.

In the Kansai region, Nakama's commercial count was around 5,300, for a total airtime of over 1,400 minutes. In second place was Masami Nagasawa, with about 500 fewer ads shown. Actor Toshiaki Karasawa ranked third.

As in previous years, however, Nakama was unable to reach #1 in the Nagoya region. This year, Aya Ueto beat her by 200 broadcasts and 70 minutes. Nakama edged out Nagasawa for second place by only about half an hour of airtime.

Nakama currently appears in 11 different commercials for companies such as KDDI and Shiseido.

In the Kanto region, Nagase ranks no. 13.

Oricon: high school girls want to date Shun Oguri
Fri, October 12, 2007 (5:14am EDT)
In a small Oricon survey asking high school girls which celebrity they would want as a boyfriend, actor Shun Oguri came out on top. His popularity has been boosted recently by roles in the television dramas "Hana Yori Dango" and "Hanazakari no Kimitachi e."

In #2 was Toma Ikuta, who also gained in popularity after appearing in "Hana Kimi" with Oguri. He was followed by Hiroshi Tamaki at #3.

Koichi Domoto and Junichi Okada tied for 4th. Teppei Koike and Yuta Hiraoka were 6th and 7th, respectively. Lastly, there was a three-way tie for 8th among Masaharu Fukuyama, Jin Akanishi, and Ryo Nishikido. Fukuyama was the only one in the top ten who is in his thirties.

Article: September 7, 2007
Source: http://ent.sina.com.cn/s/2007-09-07/10381706422.shtml

This Chinese news commented on the attractiveness of Japanese celebrities by their eyes.

Many female are very attracted by the eyes of Takizawa Hideaki because they are not only big and has clear delineation of black and white, below the left eye is a very tempting crying mole and it could stimulate motherly instinct from the female fans. Besides, his killing technique is his lonely yet strong and slightly rebellious looking eyes. Even though these eye expressions do not commensurate with age, they will move many to tears. (Gosh, this got to be a Tackey fan writing this…haha.)

Koichi Domoto’s eyes are witchy and has strong yin flavor (feminine). He belongs to those who you see from far away and would have hooked your soul already. Besides, Koichi himself has very clear eyes and his upper and lower torso all exude an air of nobility. It’s hard not to fall for him!

Tsuyoshi Domoto’s eyes are different from those of Koichi’s. The attraction of Tsuyoshi’s eyes, even though very large, lies in his eye expression – that certain sincerity and kindness. When you see his eyes, you would be certainly believe that he would definitely not hurt you.

Single eyelidded Takashi Sorimachi gives others a feeling of sharpness and strength and a sense of never yielding to failure type of strong man and one with deep emotions. Even though he appears to be hard to approach, it is very natural to be attracted by him.

Tsuyoshi Kusanagi who is also single lidded has a pair of eyes of a great house husband. Small, gentle lines and very kind. When your eyes meet with his, you would feel his deep feelings.

Kimura Takuya’s most attractive point has always been his deep sentiments. When he looks at you, your shy and fearful heart could not escape at all. His eyes are sexy and the type of men is very dangerous.

Yutaka Takenouchi has long narrow eyes and even when he laughs aloud, his eyes still shows sadness and reveals his proud solitude and loneliness like a drifter with a pure soul moving the hearts of sensitive female fans.

A poll here on the celebrity that looks good in suit.

Overall

1 Kimura Takuya
2. Kouichi Sato
3. Joe Odagiri (OMG, I saw some of his photos at the bookstore this weekend and he is so flamboyant, so drop dead gorgeous in all kinds of outfits - especially the strange ones, feminine ones, and at times long flowing hair. Incredible!!!)
3. Hitoshi Matsumoto tied with Joe Odagiri
5. Abe Hiroshi

Female votes:

1. Kouichi Sato
2. Domoto Koichi
3. Joe Odagiri tied with Hiroshi Tamaki

Male votes:

2. Hitoshi Matsumoto (the Heyx3 guy without hair)
3. Abe Hiroshi

Comments on Koichi:

20 year old comments : His back is very straight and the standing posture very pretty, even though he doesn't wear suits very often, at times, when he wears it, he's ultra cool (I totally agree!!! Remember the photos of Koichi wearing the shiny suit in the Guiness Record award last year. So handsome!!!)

40 year old comment : the feeling is that he's very compact overall but relatively his body proportions are very cool.
