    Just my thoughts ok~

    Number 1 would be obvisiously AVEX or formaly called "Avex Trax" with the full name "Avex Group Holdings K.K" Avex stands for "Audio, Visual and Expert". Avex exist since 1988.

    This company has 4,8+ million subscribers on Youtube wich makes them the most subscribed Japanese music company on Youtube.

    Avex owns some different sublabels like for example "Idol Street", "Nissy Entertainment" or "RythemZone". Avex dosn't only posts MVs of musicians they have under contract or on contract to their sublabels, they also are in contract to different Korean companys like for example YG Entertainment or SM Entertainment and Avex also posts and promotes idols from some other Japanese companys.

    Avex is also known for artists like Koda Kumi, Ayumi Hamasaki, Wagakki Band and many more ...

    Avex is also known for their large concert-event called "A-Nation" where different Japanese and Korean artists perform for some days.

    The 5 most viewed MVs on AVEX's chanel:

    1. DA PUMP-USA (193,6 million views)



    2. Sandaime J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE- R.Y.U.S.E.I (140 million views)



    3. Wagakki Band-Senbonzakura (109,3 million views)



    4. AAA-恋音と雨空 (86,7 million views)



    5. AAA-
    さよならの前に (84,2 million views)



    Number 2 would be obvisiously Warner Music Japan where some of their artists are really sucessfull in Japan.

    Warner Music Japan is know for artists like Tofubeats, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Aimyon and many more ...


    The 5 most viewed MVs on Warner's chanel:

    4. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu-Ninja Re Bang Bang (61,5 million views)



    5. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu-CANDY CANDY (41,4 million views)



    Number 3 goes to A-Sketch or fully called "A-Sketch Co. Ltd"

    A-Sketch exist since 2008 and is known for artists like ONE OK ROCK, Frederic, Dean Fujioka and many more

    The 5 most views MVs on A-Sketch's chanel:

    Big 3 Idol companies for me would be

    1. Johnny's
    2. AVEX (LDH is part of AVEX)
    3. Stardust Promotion

    A lot of the ones the op listed like Warner etc are not really idol agencies but more comparable to like CJE&M and Kakao M in Korea.

    I agree. You cannot compare Japanese record labels to Korean idol companies, since they operate differently. They dont really develop artists the same way, they operate more like western labels.

    There is also overlap in Japanese idol companies and record labels. There have been Johnnys groups whose record label was Avex and Arashi in the beginning was under Pony Canyon (until they failed to promote them and Julie created J-Storm for them).

    I would rank idol group companies/systems as:
    Johnny's
    Aki-P
    LDH

    1. Johnnys

    2. Aki-P's 48/46 Groups

    2. AVEX (LDH)

    AVEX only gets #1 spot on revenue, only because they venture on other aspects like gaming, distribution, etc. If we are talking about idols only, Johnnys have the most influence, and the most popular act (Arashi).
