Takahashi Ai LOVE NO.10 shashinshuu with making of DVD

So the newest shashinshuu of one of your most favorite♥ idols has arrived and you find yourself remarking to yourself on how through the years she’s blossomed into such a beautiful woman and such a distance from the cutesy girl whom first caught your attention during a jazz~tour~de~force and later dazzled you speechless in an unlikely line~dance gem~. Her photo books now rather resemble thoughtfully laid out family photo albums where she’d been babied as the favorite child all these years to an extreme and while they haven’t always been personable in that sense in retrospect her earliest of teens till now are forever frozen within those pages and who could’ve known then that we’d come this far? And while your graduation looms it’s still in a comforting distance and yet ever menacing with each passing hour and day you’ll soon graduate from the idol “stage”. Now reminiscing over your photo works past and present a lot of emotions~* well up inside and yet I just know we haven’t seen that final stage a thought which is both comforting and bitter~sweet. Now we’re almost there. A future yet to be inked which waits patiently nearby and whether it be with more photographs documenting your changing fashion sense, the ever growing maturity in your eyes, your endeavors set in heart,…I’ll always see you as that cornerstone of Momusu you know the one who always carried herself professionally never wavering and presenting the group in the best possible light always….an underrated leader who did as much as any idol leader’s precedence and always with a nurturing kindness and direction for her fellow members….a stage enthusiast who’s deep passions are yet to be fully realized, the one who played the lead of “Sapphire” in Hello! Project’s greatest musical….a future soloist in “Yume kara samete” if you so chose that road….a model with a natural beauty, your look always effortless always profound….an endless worker perfecting your craft day by day, now perched upon a lifetime of idol accomplishments surely too many to mention and how through the years you’ve embedded each and every one of those memories I’ll always hold you dearly…..Morning Musume’s ~princess~, you’ll always be.

Takahashi Ai’s “LOVE NO.10” pb can be ordered here @ Amazon Japan.

Takahashi Ai’s “LOVE NO.10” pb can be ordered here @ Cdjapan. (only 2 left @ the time of this posting!!)

“LOVE NO.10” is a hardcover edition published on a heavier stock/non~glossy paper which includes an approximately 19 minute accompanying “making of” DVD. Shot in Guam it’s a subtle shift from Takitty’s ealier photo books as the art direction holds much more substance but still manages to be playfully sexy throughout….not to mention that touch of lolly herein.

I think  speak for most when I say that the art of the haircut whether it be upon an idol you adore (love?) or your own personal visit to the beauty salon/hairstylist and in particular when that urge to try something new or just different strikes you on any given day can be most enlightening or on the other edge of that spectrum, traumatic (;゜□゜)!

So you just knew that it was inevitable that Takitty either break or enlighten our hearts~♥ and especially since her gorgeous hair has “now” grown to such a wonderful length (;゜□゜)!I always think though…..hair~today, gone tomorrow and yet it’ll always grow back =). So “LOVE NO.10” has both the before and after quite well documented….oh wait there’s also the during……

Takitty looks great going short or long (I’ve always been a bit more in favor of long for most idols♥….). Some are just blessed with perfect features o(*´∀`)o゛!

I have to admit I ended up scanning nearly every page of “LOVE NO.10”…..it’s that pretty!
