Weekly Poll #3

It's Monday again, which means it's time to view the results of the weekly poll!

The Question was (Submitted by Shurastriker) What's the ideal number of members for idol groups? 

 6-9 people is the winner of the poll. It got 44% (31 people).
This is also the answer choice that I picked. For an idol group, I definitely think that 6-9 people is the perfect number. It's not too small and not too large. In a group like this, it is a reachable goal to match every members names with their faces, and even sometimes learn what their voice sounds like. You can't do this is a group with 15+ members. Berryz Koubou has 7 girls, and I know every members names, faces, and I can tell who's singing. I'm also getting to know PASSPO☆ members.

2-5 people came in second place with 27% (19 people).
This was also my second choice for the number of people in an idol group. 2-5 people is the ideal number if you really want to know the members well. Momoiro Clover Z, for example, has 5 members currently and just like berryz, I know names, faces, and singing voices. Each girl can show their own personality and have singing lines because the group is much smaller.

10-13 came is third place with 21% (15 people).
This was my third answer choice. I think that 10-13 people is actually still a bit too much. With this many members, it's hard to know exactly who's who. With 10-13, If I like really like the group, then I will take the time to know the members, like Morning Musume. However, If I'm not really into a group that much, then I'll usually just pick favorites. SUPER☆GiRLS, for an example, has 11 girls. As they release more singles, I'll know more about them, but I only know 2 or 3 girls right now.

14 or more came in last place with 7% (5 people).
This was also my least favorite choice. 14+ girls in one group is just too much. Idoling!!! has 21 members, and I've been into them for a long time, yet I only know 2 or 3 members! Half of it is my fault, for not taking the time to learn the member's, but half of it is because there are too many members, and too many lineup changes in a short period of time.They say that a lot of members means you have a lot of personality to pick from, which is true, but when the company promotes the same select girls every time, it's useless to like the less popular girls since you never see them. The best thing to do when groups have a lot of members is to just pick out your favorites, and keep it moving, unless you really like that group.

In total, 70  people voted! That is a huge jump from the last poll.

Weekly poll #4 is up, so vote!


  1. I picked 6 to 9 people even though Sakura Gakuin has 12. I have learned all the names in my favorite idol groups, including Sakura Gakuin, Shiritsu Ebisu Chuugaku and others, including former members. I guess it depends on how much effort you put into remembering who is who. I agree that 14 or more is a bit much, which is one reason I regularly avoid large groups.

  2. 6-9 is the best numbers ,I believe because it`s easier to write a balance of lyric lines for each member.
