It however is a bit surprising that Manoeri beat out quite a few members of both Berryz Koubou and C-ute in acquiring her first pb release and I seriously wonder if this is truly just UFA/WaniBooks playing favorites or perhaps if particular members aren't interested in releasing them. Both could be valid reasons and in some ways I hope that the latter is true as it would be a bit sad to know that UFA is purposely ignoring a few key members in their "Big 3" lineup…including Momusu too of course. Surely though UFA must have data on fan favorites through sales and FC information in general so perhaps it's a "business" decision which is deciding which members are getting pb releases while other aren't getting any at all…truly a sad thought though.
As evidenced in each of these UTB articles as well as in official UFA photos and her indies single covers, Manoeri is so naturally gifted in front of a camera and even with her youth there's seemingly not even a hint of awkwardness or any sense of being uncomfortable either which says a lot about her confidence and poise. ^ ^ It may be still too early to speculate on what sort of image WaniBooks will present her with but going by the styles of photoshoots so far released in their publication, I'd have to predict it'll be something elegant and sweet♪♪ for the most part. But judging by the above image shared on WaniBook's official site it looks to include mizugi scenes as well. Tanoshimi desu ne~! ^ ^
