Miku Tanaka: It appears her dream is to be this year's #1 fave!!!!


 Do have to admit there's an excellent chance of her dream being fulfilled and six months ago still hadn't had her first post! Last year Miku did finish in the ninth position on the faves list and had I begun posting about her sooner she would have ended up around fifth but had waited a while to let her get a bit older. This is Miku's sixth post of the year so she's now qualified for the faves list, this post has a bit more variety than her others and more posts like this one could propel into being #1 for the year. Knew you viewers would also become huge fans which has happened quickly, Miku's last post was for her September 2021 photobook and that's been the second most viewed post of the past month. That was released on her September 12th birthday and a second book this year on that date would be a nice present for us all!

 Trying to write up a lot of posts today so let's get right to things, leading off for newish pics are these HKT cards from December.

 Miku does post a lot of pics at the HKT blog and most are quite terrific, the top two are from a recent Bubka photo shoot and she'll be the cover girl for their next issue. The bottom ones are from ten days ago and were taken in Vietnam as HKT performed a pair of shows there, to me it's always seemed as though they have a large fan base outside of Japan.

 This batch here are some recent concert photos of Miku with some being from their Vietnam shows. Have been trying to get into HKT much more as of late but they don't make it easy! They have so few concert DVD's but what really baffles me is that they no longer have any kind of group variety show, think their last one ended in 2019 but correct me if I'm wrong.

 Miku's first ever post was about five months ago, since then in almost every post have been saying it was unbelievable how many magazine covers she appears on. There is an award for appearing on the most covers in a year and thought she would run away with the award for J-Pop Idols or singers. And that did happen as earlier in the week Miku won the award in the musical category for appearing on the most covers. There is a site called Covergirl.jp which does track these things and they looked at the 10,000 magazine covers that were released last year, she also was tied for second having the most covers of anyone in the entertainment field that includes models, actresses, etc.

 Just a pair of Miku spreads for today and of course she's the cover girl for both of them! Don't know how many covers Miku did appear on in 2022 but would think the total was over thirty and this set is from the February issue of Young Champion Best.

 That above spread was a rarity as it had less than ten pages. Final set for today features her once again on the cover and is from the March 2nd issue of Weekly Shonen Champion. To me it seems Miku appears in this magazine more than any other one and the bottom pics are from the photo shoot. Of course there's no newish ones so will skip having a video once again.
