~AKB48 shines~* as UTB cover♥girls, the truth about sediments & Mayuyu’s awesome shirt~!

Timing really can mean so much~*….and with AKB48♥ ever growing on my mind ( ̄▽ ̄)♥♥♥ recently with their single release "Sakura no shiori" pretty much owning me (*´艸`)。。。and now the arrival of the latest issue of UTB featuring none other than AKB48 gracing what I think is one of UTB's most pretty~* covers and that goes up against some most tough competition as…….

…..here ↓↓↓ just considering the dominant era of H!P gracing~* so many issues often in a streak of consecutive issues reaching annual peaks I can only wonder if AKB48♥ will next see such a streak in UTB~? I think it would be most welcome っo(*´∀`)o!。。news as surely covers as pretty~* as this one attracts sales no doubt ^ ^。

Just Maeda Atsuko alone has been so popular in numerous publications and often appears solo as well…and while I'm still in search of the answer as to why she's regarded as the most popular~* in the group, I imagine that can only be answered over time in getting to know the group and its members much better~ (*´∀`*)。

While UTB always seems to divide up their featured idols♥ so well in their trading card sets~*, I have to admit that I was thinking…..Please set "C" set "C"!!!!…

..and upon opening the card pouch there were Maimichan, Manoeri (seifuku~♥!) and Mayuyu♥ looking back (人∀`*)!!Kojima Haruna, Kashiwagi Yuki and Takajo Aki are also featured in set "C" but overall it was the Mayuyu♥ trading card which I was drawn to the most~~~~> ヽ(。´▽`。)ノ。。!So, um it's the only trading card I scanned today~ (。ーωー。) ♪ ♪

I don't know what it is but I'm strangely drawn to (*´艸`)~!。。both Mayuyu's and Acchan's shirts~*! While the "Rolling Stones" tongue may be legendary~, here Mayuyu's♥ is much cuter~* and her's also features I think a pierced tongue?!..a~h! it's a bit obscured in her photos but who could resist a large yellow happy face =) who's pierced? 😛 "Rock" is also an awesome theme so here it's pure ~♥~!…also black goes so well together with red ne~ ^ ^!Just wondering out loud though….where did the rest of everyone's shirts go? (・д・`*)!!!!。。while it all seems pretty normal here on the cover, you know maybe UTB wanted to allure with a bit tummy~* showing and yet as you'll see in the top feature article each girl's shirt is much more *there* and not cut…well in their solo photos at least XD!

Acchan's "sediments ↓ " is bit more confusing or maybe *naughty*…I don't know what to think for sure but initially I was picturing the way that a bottle of Chinese chicken salad dressing needs to be shaken~~! very much in order to get those "sediments" to mix around evenly before serving…(^q^)! The other….well " ↓ " thought I had involved not so much a "sediment" but you know gravity can play a role but I won't say anything more about *it*~ (。ーωー。) ♪ ♪。。。。

…all "sediments" aside, if you love AKB48♥ & Hello!Project♥, UTB is custom made for you kitto~ o(*´∀`)o゛!


~My favorite♥ Mayuyu photo of all time~~!..well
I've only been a fan recently but…um
just saying XD.

It's almost as if UTB truly knew~*!
Itano Tomochin♥ in the same very issue
and on the cover (*´艸`)!!!!Here it's a cuddly
version of the "nyan♥nyan" pose o(*´∀`)o゛♥♥♥


~The last time we say Kashiwagi Yuki in UTB she was playing both Angel~* and Devil…
here it's yet another touch of angelic~* as her photo shoot is shared with Takajou Aki~.

~W~ah! it's the largest bow ever (・o・)!!!!

~It's like a versus photo ー(* ̄O ̄)ノ

~But what's with the giant mascot?…
..I hope it's not SharanQ's guitarist in disguise again~ (・д・`*)!!!

~Select start~* from H!P are featured in "School Days"…
hmm..is Momo getting taller or is everyone else shrinking ( ̄▽ ̄)


AKB48's Kitahara Rie gets a solo feature here…
..she's also regarded as an "ace" of the group
according to the article. Her gravure photos are *sexy~*!

~Love~♥ love~♥ S/mileage so I was so happy to see their feature here~*!
They're all so adorable and yet,
Yukarin still has the best expressions~* even when not trying (人∀`*)。

~Maimichan♥ solo features continue with vol.6…
..photo essays of life~*,
these in the snow are so wonderfully shot~ ^ ^。

    *checks mail* Nope, still not there yet. I WANT MY COPY!!!


  2. I'm thinking your subscription~* will arrive very soon (*´∀`*)!!UTB has really embraced both Hello!Project and now AKB48 so much….it's really like a fan~publication in a way as there's so much great content to love~♥ and even when looking towards the next issue, there's promise of much more AKB48 & H!P to arrive in their pages~ っo(*´∀`)o! A~h if you receive set "B" trading cards I may be jealous!!!…just warning you~ (。ーωー。)。。。


  3. Thank you~* thank you~* thank you~~*! so much!! o(*´∀`)o゛♥、I totally would've not known about this new unit…just pre~ordered Queen & Elizabeth's release and I couldn't believe that there were four different versions (・д・`*)!!!。。and all of their LE's were still available~*! I'm thinking you can guess which one I chose (。ーωー。) ♪ ♪

    hah, right after I canceled my UTB (CD Japan) subscription it's been getting better and better… again.


  6. I'm thinking renewing your subscription~* may be most worth it, it just seems after UTB went through a sort of transition time they're now really supporting both H!P and AKB48 so much and they truly do have some of the very best photography and articles…some are continuing series too like Maimichan's photo diaries ^ ^。


  7. Wow~ this is a great issue~! Shots from the H!P school shoot, S/mileage, AKB48, Maimi~ I didn't even realize that Maimi and Risako were so close in height. o_O! I *really* like the S/mileage shots too~ I saw a few on H!O and was really impressed~


  8. I really love the combination of members chosen too and seifuku~* always works w/ idols♥ ne~ ^ ^!So cute~* and I had a funny moment too at first when seeing them side by side and especially how I've always thought of Momo as being so tiny and yet she's so much closer in height XD. I wonder if S/mileage will reach their "smile" goal for their major debut~*? Really cute that they have twitter too now…I wonder if Momusu will also have twitter accounts in the future….I'm just imagining the interesting…um amusing things that Kamei♥ will write daily ( ̄▽ ̄)。U~n I'm always thinking bangs? or no bangs??….oh "hime?" I so don't know style names enough (._.;)!!
