Who didn't you notice at first, but have now become one of your faves?
Berryz Koubou. (Mostly Yurina, Risako, and Maasa) I used to always see Berryz around, but I never really gave them a listen until about the time '21ji Made...' came out. I hated them at first, but after their past few singles and the Berryz Goodies thread, they're starting to become my favorites.
Who didn't you like (or even hated) at first, but like a lot now?
When I first saw Sayu, Reina, and Eri, I didn't really like any of them, but as they started to do more I liked them more. Although not so much with Reina. I don't really like her too much, but there's nothing I hate about her either. I used to think Sayu was annoying, but her Futarigoto and segments with Yuko made me like her more. Also, Berryz like I said before.
Who were your favourites at first (I mean the first time you saw them, the very first impression), but aren't even close to your top 10 or 15 anymore?
Yossi, Ai T., Shibata, and probably some others, but I can't remember.
Are there any members who only recently (e.g. during the last 2 months) grabbed your attention due to some new release, tv show, a concert etc.?
No one has really grabbed my attention lately. But some members have either gained quite a few more points with me, like Reina, Nacchi, and Aya.
