N-Monitor and Oricon once again elected the CM King & Queen for 2011, based on the number of CM contracts that were signed this year.

Midway through the year, pro-golfer Ishikawa Ryo and actress Ueto Aya were leading in their respective rankings.

The former was able to defend his title with seventeen contracts (three more than in July). He was able to defend his crown as last year he was also the CM King. His fresh looks and very polite manners made him a mainstay in the Japanese world of CMs. This year he also put a lot of his energy into supporting the victims of the Great Tohoku Earthquake, increasing his popularity even further.

It's also no big surprise that all members of popular idol group Arashi made it into the top five of the ranking. The only person that broke the chain was actor Mukai Osamu on the third place with twelve contracts.

As for the ranking of the CM Queen, in July it already was evident that some particular members of idol group AKB48 were becoming an imminent threat for Ueto and her title. Now, after two consecutive wins and five yearly titles as CM Queen in total, Ueto eventually had to give in to the idol power and dropped down to the fifth place with fourteen contracts, which is 'only' one more than six months ago.

Instead, this year's title of the CM Queen went to AKB48 member Oshima Yuko, who improved her mid-season result by eight more contracts and scored a total of nineteen CM deals this year. AKB48 also claimed the second and third place with Shinoda Mariko, Maeda Atsuko, and Itano Tomomi.

Another member of the said group, Takahashi Minami, followed on the fourth place, but she has to share it with child actress Ashida Mana. The latter has to watch out for fellow child actress, Kobayashi Seiran, who just barely missed to make it onto this particular ranking with eight CM contracts.

Check out the complete rankings below!
