No surprise who's on top..... hehe

Who are the most disliked women of 2011?

Weekly tabloid eShukan Bunshune continued their annual tradition of conducting a survey of the most disliked women of the year.

eShukan Bunshunf once again asked 1,000 women to name the female celebrity that annoys them the most. Of course, all the regulars made it on the list again, including actress Sawajiri Erika who managed to claim title of the most disliked woman again after a disappointing second place last year.

Ignoring the other regulars, itfs always more interesting to see some new names on the list, like model Rola and TV announcer Tanaka Minami. Both of them managed to annoy enough people to rank this year, either by too many appearances on all kind of variety programs or by simply acting too cute all of the time.

However, some members of popular idol group AKB48 also made it into the top thirty for the first time. Especially their center, Maeda Atsuko, probably wonft be that happy about climbing up 36 spots and ranking fifth this year. Fellow member Itano Tomomi, who received more exposure due to her solo activities, is a complete newcomer on the ranking, settling for 20th place.

Fans and other netizens were quick to defend the two, especially Maeda, but there are also many people who can agree with her rank. Surprisingly there are also some netizens who look at the ranking with reason and left comments like, gWhen you are popular, there will always be people who donft like you. Thatfs nothing new.h

You can check out the complete top 30 below!

Hahaha. Just kidding of course, but you're absolutely right...knowing information about the pollster is usually very telling about these sort of surveys.

Have you noticed the most recent news today? Have you noticed how much of the important news and issues facing society today are pushed more and more onto the "back burner?

TOKYO: J-pop singer Koda Kumi has announced on Tuesday via her website that she will be marrying rock band Back-On's vocalist Kenji03, reported Japanese media.

"He is a wonderful man who has accepted someone like me," wrote Koda in a short statement.

A spokesperson for Koda stressed that the singer is not pregnant and said the two lovebirds will register their marriage at the end of December.

The 29-year-old star, whose real name is Kumiko Koda, started dating Kenji03 after they worked on a song together earlier this year.

"Though it has not been that long since we met, we have decided to walk through life together as partners," said Kenji03 in a message on his official website.

Koda, who recently performed at the 2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards in Singapore, is best known for her hit songs like "Stay with Me" and "It's All Love!".
