The locations for the photo shoots and in particular those done in Okinawa are wonderful visions of untouched nature and beautiful landscapes adding a nice compliment to this pb. I cannot stress enough how much the styling, clothing, and artistic direction all helped in presenting Sayu in this mature state like never before. But not to worry the playful soul of Sayu is alive and well and much of this can be seen in the accompanying making of DVD which has an impressive running time of approximately 25 minutes! Wani Books continues to lead the charge of this new breed of shashinshuu and quite simply no one does it as well. Candid footage from all photo shoots are included and Sayu has cute introductions to the new locations and wardrobe styles as the DVD presents a pretty comprehensive look at this overall project. Eyes full of sparkle and a smile like the sun here's Sayu here and now…
Removing the shashinshuu's jacket reveals a beautiful gatefold photo of Sayu covering the entire front and back covers in a single shot which I believe is the first of this nature for a H!P pb release. While this photo may actually be a nicer shot of Sayu, the cover is much more representative of this release.
I love the photos of Sayu with that large black scarf as it reminds me of the H!P member scarfs that are on the way! 🙂
The following are shots from Sousou's making of DVD:
