And here I was thinking they earned a lot money, then the comments made me do a double take, are they getting paid fairly?

not surprised at Mariko and Tomochin earning the most with their fashion stuffs. But that's still not much  :wth:

 

Also I'm really curious how Kasai and Sayaka and (maybe even Sae) are on that list. Where's Sasshi ?

I think this includes their outside 48 activities since Shinoda is first, she's the one with the most modelling/outside jobs outside the group. But who knows.

 

I don't think those amount are that little. I mean there are groups/acts whose official sales equals to those numbers, yet for these girls it's their clean income. That amount equals to a lot in my country.

 

Just hoping the lower tier members get good amount of money too.

It looks like expected. Not sure what the original source is here and how credible it is, but I'm not slightly surprised if these are the correct figures.

 

But for some reason, people are too busy fapping over how many copies their latest CD sold instead of caring about how popular and successful artists actually are. Not very different from kpop fans.  -_-

Well they don't do work outside Japan so it'll be less, considering they work INSIDE JAPAN ONLY.

>.< double post.

 

Well they don't do work outside Japan so it'll be less, considering they work INSIDE JAPAN ONLY. 

I don't exactly get what you're trying to say. Firstly most of the income comes from outside work. I'm pretty sure the actual performers of a song, as long as they didn't take part in the creation of the song, get a meager 5-10% of the total profits made from the song. So it's not like I expect them to make millions through that.

Actual money lies in appearances- TV, magazines, concerts, etc. I know gravure doesn't pay very handsomely. So I'm not even surprised that the fashion queens topped. But these girls-individually and in group, have quite a few brand endorsement contracts so I'd just expect them to earn a little more based on that. Not more by leaps and bounds. I saw a list once according to which the top girls demand about 400,000 USD per CF. Even if they got to keep about 30% of that, considering the top girls all have at least 10 or more endorsements, they should be making more. 

 

Also I'm still curious how Kasai, Sayaka snd Sae are on that list and are making as much as they are. Because of this, in my eyes,this list seems a bit questionable when it comes to legitimacy.

I'm reading pretty much all threads posted in the 4 subforums for Korean/Japanese Music/Celebrity News.
And I comment on whatever I find interesting.

I think this list is individual incomes as an AKB group income. Yes I do know that money mostly comes from TV shows/variety, magazines and concerts. The girls have more Fashion magazine and drama show contracts than songs. I haven't seen the girls CM being seen outside Japan or the girls endorsing products that comes from outside Japan. Most of their cm and stuff are targeted to Japanese.
