Translation: DUET September 2012, D-1 Grand Prix  

Translation time! It's been way too long since I last posted here, so I thought I'd liven up my LJ a little and write out the rankings of the little booklet "D-1 Grand Prix" which came with DUET magazine of September 2012, and I translated the few lines of the Jr part. The readers of DUET had to vote which idol they thought would fit a certain topic best, and for the last questions the Jrs had to vote for which Jr they thought fit the topic best.
I don't have any scans of the booklet, but I'm sure they're floating around on the internet somewhere? I was surpised by some of the results, to be honest.
