原 史奈…gravure idol, actress, model, host & artist♪♪~

From the late 90's till now Hara Fumina has graced countless magazine covers, appeared in numerous variety t.v., hosted sports programs, starred as Sailor Moon, appeared in lots of CMs, starred in both t.v. dramas and movies…has an array of idol DVDs & shashinshuu and while her career which has spanned well over a decade is primarily known as an actress and former gravure idol, this now 28 year old also ventured into the music scene back in 2001 & 2002~.

And while music may have not have turned out to be her niche, Hara Fumina did release two singles and a pv collection during that span of time.

Hara Fumina releases can be found here at Cdjapan, YesAsia, Amazon Japan and HMV Japan.

What's really sweet about these singles are the variety and effort put forth into the musical♪♪ compositions and particularly with her second single where both tracks "Koi wo hajimemashou" & "Aozora to taiyou to kaze no naka" show a great jazz influence in both with some of the chorus portions of the latter taking on a somewhat avant-garde approach~. Her earlier single is more in the vein of comtemporary pop with a bit of folk flavoring in "Naite iiyo" while "Negai ga kanau basho" is pure pop fun in a most catchy sense! Fumina's vocals throughout are more on the cutesy side with a light but sweet♥ intonation~. o(*´∀`)o゛

Hara Fumina also frequented Bomb magazine which is like idol heaven photography for any collectors out there. ( ̄▽ ̄) Each issue averages about 178 pages and the magazines size is somewhat more like a digest in a sense as it measures 8 1/4" x 5 7/8" and the content in this publication is just amazing as in addition to extensive gravure photography in each issue you'll also find idol news, release news, event & t.v. show/drama updates, idol schedules for what they'll be doing in the coming weeks, and tons of interviews! Etc! etc! I subscribed from early '98 through 2002 and my modest Bomb magazine collection consists of 66 issues~.

The featured cover girl for each issue is featured extensively through photography, works, interviews as well as other special features including…..

………your favorite♥ idol's room invasion!! Σ( ̄◇ ̄*)!!…no I mean room check!…(^q^) It's really a long running cute feature for their cover girls and it's really great to see how your favorite idols live and yes~! organize their rooms! Really intimate for sure. ^ ^

Then there's the "Growing Up Story" feature which also covers each issue's featured cover girl!………

………..and last but certainly not least is the famous…

……."Body Check" feature! Of course only the slightly older idols get these and I'm thinking you can imagine why! (。ーωー。)

And here's just a little sampling of what you can expect from the pages of Bomb magazine……here of course is Hara Fumina's feature from their February 2002 issue……..

And just a little peek inside her shashinshuu "Days" as I scanned a few favorite♥ pages…

  6. Collecting has become so much a *passion*..maybe too much of one. XD I actually ended that subscription originally due to space, the lack of it….but then I got two new bookshelves so now magazine subscriptions are back in~. =) I think you've already got a great collection going but be careful as you may end up sleeping on a futon too….as in no more space for a proper bed! (._.;) It's a really unique feature and they've been doing this for such a long time and it's really almost surreal to be able to see how your favorite idols organize their rooms and what sort of collectibles and necessities they have in them. =) You can really hear a strong jazz influence in her latter two songs which I really ♥! And her voice is simple yet *perfect*. (*´∀`*)
