While I’m not sure if this can really be considered a series, I’m really enjoying the current string of individual DVD releases which have so far featured Airiin, Tanakachi, Momo and now Kamei with her DVD release “20 Dreams.” While it’s not unusual to have coinciding video releases to accompany shashinshuu releases I’m finding these lately to be quite different from those of the past as each has covered in a sense a specific theme pertaining to each member as it all started with Airiin golf♥! That remains one of my most favorite actually as she was just so much fun to watch on a mini golf course….complete with batsu penalties! And OMG I can’t believe that they made her eat “that!!!!!!” :O I never did get around to posting some random Airiin screencaps or video from that release, maybe I’ll put some up later. ^ ^
In a span of approximately 55 minutes Kamei treats us to some of her inner most thoughts while on location in scenic Okinawa. Whenever I see any footage or photos of Okinawa it just has such a warm and small town feel to their community and their architecture is always so amazing to see~! Unlike any of its predecessors, in large “20 Dreams” is a personal recollection which delves into a much more intimate look into an idol’s aspirations, hopes and dreams as the title suggests and where other previous releases may have only scratched the surface, Kamei’s narrative throughout covers anything from simple aspects such as hair color, dream bedroom & home design and fellow members to much deeper thoughts of family memories, specific childhood events, and future speculation. And throughout it’s all delivered with cute sincerity and more than any other member in Momusu, Kamei possesses the uncanny ability to incorporate the most adorable random and honest laughter that I’ve ever seen. =)
And in addition to reflecting on the theme of age & dreams, we’re also treated to the inclusion of interspliced segments which share additional shashinshuu making of footage furthuring the contents of the pb’s brief DVD.
Definitely recommended viewing for any Kamei fan and it’s really notable to mention just how greatly matured Kamei has grown leading up to this release. She’s really amazing to listen to throughout her narrative!
Kamei Eri’s “20 はたち” shashinshuu can be ordered here from Amazon Japan.
Now if there just was a way to mail in my postcard and somehow win that cute tote at the end~! ………(゜∀゜)………。
