When I pre~ordered the new issue of Switch I had no idea they were going to dedicate so much of their pages to AKB!…I was just going on my interest of them being named covergirls so what a wonderful surprise to see over 70 pages and nearly half of the issue dedicated to AKB!!
In the past Switch has often featured extensive articles for their cover features and there was even a really great large article about Mr.Children♥ a few years ago…but this anniversary issue takes that to a whole new level~. I mean in addition to the main cover feature with members Acchan, Yuko, Mariko, Kojiharu, Mayuyu, Tomochin and Takamina there’s also a insight into their live performances as well as an interview with producer AkiP and lots of Q&A with the girls…they even get to question each other in one section~! And I was just like wow~* when I saw that even Koizumi Kyoko “Kyonkyon” had an article with AkiP!!..talk about his connection and roots to J~Pop of yesteryear!
If you’ve never purchased an issue of Switch, their approach is most artful and diverse with their content and much can be said about their amazing~* photography which you’ll see just below. One thing I still need to learn now that I’m purchasing space here is how to make smaller scans (._.;)!!…and does anyone know if you could add photos in groups instead of only singly as I was able to put them into small or larger groups together on Vox?
I scanned for a few hours today but I didn’t get to scan everything as there is rather a lot here and I took a few photos of some of the two~page gatefold style pictures since I have no idea of how to connect them XD. Hmm…seems that Yuko is still kissing Acchan ↓↓↓ (*´∀｀)♥。。。
The photography and articles are really great, enjoy (*≧∀≦)ノ！。。。
