Oricon: who do you want as your lover?
Wed, December 5, 2007 (4:40am EST)
Oricon polled 500 women on which male celebrity they would want as their lover. Masaharu Fukuyama was the #1 choice, just as he was last year when the same question was asked regarding male music artists.

Koichi Domoto made the list at #2, just ahead of Hiroshi Tamaki. Tsuyoshi Domoto tied with Takuya Kimura for #4, while Junichi Okada and Jin Akanishi tied for #6. Joe Odagiri stood alone at #8, but there was another tie at #9 between Satoshi Tsumabuki and Tomohisa Yamashita.

Now that the weather has turned cold, Oricon conducted a survey asking a thousand men and women which celebrity they would want to be nursed by if they were sick.

Women ranked Masaharu Fukuyama as #1, followed by Teppei Koike and Tsuyoshi Domoto. Kenji Sakaguchi tied with Shingo Katori for #4.

Men, on the other hand, preferred Masami Nagasawa, though Yui Aragaki was the second most popular choice. Aki Hoshino and Satomi Ishihara tied for #3, while Hitomi Kuroki, Haruka Ayase, and Maki Horikita all tied for #5.

Oricon: who would you play video games with?
Tue, December 11, 2007 (4:32am EST)
Oricon conducted a survey of a thousand men and women, asking them which celebrity they would want to play video games with. Otaku (and gamer) idol Shoko Nakagawa easily topped the survey, ranking #1 among male respondents and #2 among females.

#2 overall was Shinya Arino of comedy duo Yoiko, who hosts the gaming show "Game Center CX" on Fuji TV. He was followed in the rankings by Shingo Katori and Becky, neither of whom are known for playing video games but were both chosen mainly for their cheerful personalities.

Pop star Hikaru Utada, who is also known as a Tetris fanatic, ranked 5th, though she was the #1 choice among those in their twenties. The rest of the top ten were Sanma Akashiya (#6), Masaharu Fukuyama, Koichi Domoto, and Aya Ueto (all tied for #7), and Kaori Manabe and Kazunari Ninomiya (tied for #10).

If you look at the actual list, you could see Koichi's name in

Aggregate no. 7

Female votes no. 3

10 year olds and up no. 3

30 year olds and up no. 4

http://life.oricon.co.jp/news/071210.html

For 30 year olds and up, SMAP's Nakai, Kimura and Shingo got no. 5 position

Oricon: men want to sing Ai Otsuka tunes
Thu, December 13, 2007 (5:53am EST)
Oricon recently asked a thousand men and women which artist of the opposite sex they would sing karaoke to.

The top choice by men was Ai Otsuka, known for many lively hits such as "Sakuranbo." YUI ranked second, followed by a tie for third between Miyuki Nakajima and Ayaka, while aiko ranked fifth.

Women, on the other hand, favored KinKi Kids. The next most popular choices were L'Arc~en~Ciel, Porno Graffiti, Mr.Children, and Kobukuro.

There's also a poll of who you want to spend New Year with. Koichi comes fifth in this one. Shingo of SMAP is also in no. 5 position along with Toma Ikuta and Joe Odagir.

Today's survey is what kind of music do you carry with you (on portable devices).

Kinki Kids surprising beat Fukuyama Masaharu whom I don't see in the top 10 in aggregrate, or top 3. Very revealing!

The comment says they like their music because they like the group and one said because most songs are slower and is very good for the hectic morning commute.

Aggregate no. 1
Female no. 1
Male none
20's no. 3
30's no. 3
40's no. 1

Wow, nice poll. Which artist do you listen to most of the time and Kinki Kids top the poll in aggregate and female votes.

20's no. 3
30's no. 3
40's no. 1

This means Kinki Kids is not out of fashion at all and the oldies definitely are diehard fans.

Here is the top 100 Japanese celebrities estimated income and their tax payment most likely for last year. Thanks to Kinki Kids wordpress site for posting it here. I am taking the liberty to translate some of the names for the people that I like. You could see that the very top earners are singers this year. But the Johnny's Entertainment artists do not rank high because JE pocketed the money and not their artist. Independent artists definitely earn more.To be honest, if you look at Kimura's income at US$19.9 million, and Kinki Kids each at US$12 million, it's really no big deal. Jet Li makes US$13 million for one movie. JE really underpaid its stars. Or shall we say, if you are good looking and can do kung fu and act in the movie, your chance of getting richer is higher.

Ranking/Estimated Income in 100 million yen/Tax/ Name

To read the figures, you have to convert them into billions.

97億 = 9,700,000,000 yen = US$92,135,262

This article was dated in June 2008 and it reported a poll of 500 oldies (half male, half female) from the age of 50-79 as to their viewing habits of TV dramas. Over 16.1% said that they have increased watching time and 44.1% said that they have reduced watching time. It seems to correlated to the increase complaint of not having interesting dramas to watch.

Of this age group,their no. 1 drama is Atsu-Hime. For guys, no. 2 is Gokusen, no. 3 Change. For female votes, no. 2 is Change, no. 3 is Kasouken and Around 40.

The news immediately following might be poll rankings by the same voters.The polls is to rank which is the prefered actor you would like to watch, the attractiveness of drama and who you would like to watch in the genre of drama.

Kimura Takuya won hands down for aggregate, male votes, female votes for the actor to watch. See first list.

The drama that you are most satisfied with, Kimura's drama HERO rank no. 2 for aggregate, no. 2 for male vote, no. 8 for female vote.Second table.

Kimura's Karei naru Ichizoku ranked no. 4 in aggregate vote, no. 8 in male vote, and no. 2 in female vote.

Third table is what genre you would prefer as first choice and which actor combination would you like.

The first genre is Taiga genre. And surprisingly, Koichi Domoto and Misaki Ito were listed as the preferred actors for the Family love drama genre in no. 11 position.

Even more surprising is that Kimura Takuya, the most popular actor in this group was not listed at all in the genre-actor combination. The writer of the article truly find it unbelievable that Kimura commands such unplaced popularity....hahaha....
