So before my already belated birthday wish to Kamei gets any older…..Happy Birthday Kamei~~~~a very very happy 20th~~!!! ♪♪(^o^)/♪♪
Kamei's birthday was on the 23rd so if you're reading this from Japan then I'm actually two days late. 😛
If there were a way to play an influence I'd write WaniBooks right now and remind them to have Kamei grace their very next issue! But with the lack of H!P covers lately this does seem highly unlikely and mostly just a dream of mine. ^ ^ Kamei's latest pb release is a beautifully presented hard cover photo book and it includes WaniBook's favorable treats such as pictured outer covers as well as a making of DVD with an approximate running time of 11 minutes.
"20 Hatachi" is Kamei's 7th overall pb release and her 6th by WaniBooks making her one of UFA's favorites when it comes to photo book releases, therefore giving us a very well documented pictorial of all that is Kamei since joining Momusu and becoming one of Japan's cutest and most adorable idols ever! ^ ^
While her previous releases "Maple" and "Eri" (her shashinshuu zenshuu) took quite a leap into presenting a much matured image of Kamei which was so beautifully done, "Hatachi" was produced with a very noticeable aim to give back some of that honesty in Kamei's warm and often times giddy aura coming through with flying colors here. From traditional kimono to casual to beach attire to evening dress to play time clothing, Kamei's natural charm and "lightness" shine through it all. And whether carefully orchestrated or shot with an on the fly look, the seemingly eternal well of Kamei's youth and playfulness surfaces without restraint or forcefullness. Kamei is a sharp contrast from her fellow generation in Reinachan's strength and Sayu's deeply rooted "nyan nyan" personality (sorry that was the first thought that came to mind as I pondered Sayu's image 😛 ) as hers is of a somewhat less obvious….and somewhat subtle in her sweet & gentle charisma which flows from her being just as the rivers flow.
And through it all when it comes to physicalities, for me personally Kamei just has the most beautiful eyes in all of H!P…..and there's just so much personality and truth in them…………sometimes soft, sometimes piercing. Kamei also has such perfect form as in not too thin but just right! In an age where sometimes overly thin models tend to grace just about ever fashion magazine that you pick up, it's really a frightening and sometimes unhealthy image that's being pushed and presented to girls everywhere….so in short I think that in terms of a physical role model, Kamei is also perfect in that regard. ^ ^
Below I've chosen and scanned 25 of my favorite photos from "Hatachi" in addition to the cute birthday collage posted above and I was trying to choose at least one photo from each separate photo shoot so to hopefully give you a good idea of just what to expect when ordering this latest beautiful offering from H!P & WaniBooks.
Hmmmm…I really could go on and on about Kamei for hours as she's my current favorite Momusu member and 2nd overall favorite H!P member who will ascend to #1 in that regard when Nacchi graduates (´⌒｀。) next March…but before things get out of hand here in Kamei ♥ land I'll get to the scans right away! 😛
Awwww now I'd like play tennis with Kamei!! Lol! I wonder if I'd stand a chance?
♥ this photo!!!!
Her outfit is cute here!!
