Still having trouble deciding which H!P calendar to get for next year? It's possible that this may either help or make the decision…even more difficult.
Again sorry for the dark images as the lighting in my room isn't the best and using the flash kind of obscured the images so I took them straight. It's been a few years since Momusu has produced a calendar in the likes of C-ute's 2008 calendar where a theme was used but they always seem to come out with a visually stunning release and next year's calendar doesn't disappoint!
Get your year started off with a great mixture of veteran members & youth and initially when seeing January & February I thought that this year's Momusu calendar would be a series of shots exclusively using these red outfits. As great as they look the producers had other ideas. 🙂 One look at this shot and immediately the styling really stands out as the essence of elegance really makes for a beautiful beginning to next year's first image.
Ahhh March & April could stay up on your wall all year long! A sweet Spring feeling is in the air as the casual and light styling of Gakisan, Lin Lin, & Sayu's dresses decorate your wall. Sayu looks too cute for words!!!
Summer will heat up with 2 of Momusu's hottest members as Kohachan & Tanakachi present us with very cute poses and by this point I have to note just how great a job the stylists did when choosing the various wardrobes for the girls! They should shoot a PV using these outfits as they are incredibly beautiful but in a very subtle way that makes them all very sweet.
July & August may just be my favorite page as the incredibly adorable Kamei is paired with Jun Jun who has really impressed me recently. Jun Jun has really become one of Momusu's sweetest members and Kamei is incomparable to any other member in the adorable department! The styling here is such a great balance of elegance & casual attire and next year's Momusu calendar is shaping up to be one of their absolute best so far. Kamei! Too cute!!
I love how the four seasons are really brought to life in each of these photos and none may be more profound than Aichan & Mittsi's Fall photograph. I've really gotten used to Aichan's shorter hairstyle and Mittsi has really grown as an idol and is 100% adorable here!!
The holiday season will be greeted with those beautiful red outfits which started the year off and like perfect bookends to a calendar, the 5 members which didn't appear in the January & February photo are represented here looking as radiant as ever. In particular Kamei looks about as cute as I believe possible!!! Of course I'm a "bit" 😛 biased but I really think that she is cutest and most adorable in Momusu's 2008 calendar production!
I won't hesitate in saying that this is perhaps the best Momusu calendar that they've released to date and I think after viewing these shots some others may agree. Anyone who may be trying to decide on which H!P calendar to get for next year may find these shots a good reason to go with Morning Musume's release. On the other hand C-ute's release really presents a great dilemma as theirs is equally as stunning and they also incorporated the great theme of various musical genres. I've yet to open up Berryz Koubou's 2008 calendar and at this point I see no reason to hold back till January for a sneak peek now. 🙂
H!P continues to treat their fans with an extra page in each of their calendars and while this shot is an alternate pic of the cover it's really a nice "genki" shot!! And just like the others it makes for a perfect poster which can be removed from the calendar quite neatly.
