I’m also glad that Arashi managed to keep their spot and they didn’t fall places, same goes with Sho. Aside from Sakurai, MatsuJun is in 16th place, Ohno in 20th, Aiba in 22nd and Nino in 25th. Other JE talents within Top 30 is SMAP in 11th place and Okada Junichi in 27th.

Figure skaters Mao and Hanyu has indeed gotten more popular after Sochi 2014. Mao has always been present among Top 10-15 but Hanyu took a huge leap from 603 to 3rd place. Speaking of taking huge leaps, Sakai Masato is on Top 10, thanks to Hanzawa Naoki, Nikkei now has 3 actors aside from Fukuyama and Abe.

For the rest, here are actors, musicians (male), and girl groups
