UTB Vol159 October 1995

Today’s UTB features model/actress Shinohara Ryoko who’s still very much active today in dramas and looking back to 1995 Ryoko~san also began a career in J~pop then with “Lady Generation” leading the way in both single and album releases~. I actually have this album and I’ll post both album scans and complete tracks upon request. This issue also features a bit of a rarity in that it includes a rather large sized poster of Shinohara Ryoko pictured just below.

Visual Queen of the Year winners including Enomoto Kanako, Yui Ryoko, Akimoto Yuuki and remember Kahara Tomomi? Pictured here for her image video “Paradox” and just before she ascended to the top of the Oricon charts as driven by the production and writing of Komuro Tetsuya who played a major role in Japan’s successful music scene and its continued growth as he masterminded numerous projects and groups with Amuro Namie being most prominent/ Okouchi Nanako pictorial/ Uchida Yuko interview & pictorial/ A look into 11 idol’s personal passions….Kanno Miho was into rollerblading?? Who knew =)!/ Miura Rieko long interview….click here~* to visit one of J~pop’s cutest of voices all time!!/ Okina Megumi live report/ Suzuki Yumie pictorial/ Kusunoki Yuko…just had to include her article as it isn’t very often that we see a 19 year old t.v. reporter turned road racer in an idol publication~* =)/ Asakawa Chihiro Bishoujo feature/ J~pop release information which highlights Kanno Miho’s 1st music video release, Nishida Hikaru new album release, MAX 2nd single release, Shiina Hekiru event info and new singles by Globe…Harada Tomoyo….and the incomparable My Little Lover who shared the mutual mastermind of Mr.Children in Kobayashi Takeshi/ A most amusing collaborated corner w/ Kanno Miho/ Kanno Miho pictorial featuring her then new shashinshuu “17ans”/ Murata Kazumi pictorial and I’ve always found it amazing how she can at one moment look so childlike and yet just a wardrobe and hair & make~up session later so much more mature. Murata Kazumi also ventured into a career in J~pop back then and I own just a few of her singles~♥ =)/ Kobayashi Megumi pictorial/ Hinagata Akiko pictorial which brings an entirely new meaning and use for bottled water everywhere~* ^ ^! Till next week!

    Berryz-san, could you please scan Kanno Miho’s pages? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a complete version, though I think I know which one’s they are…

    Thank you in advance!

    • Hi noblsheep~* Thank you for your request…..I just scanned in Kanno Miho’s pictorial =). These photos may be original size as I added them directly through WP as all others are sized down a bit when I originally write these posts. Oh and the slight grainy look is completely normal as the original pages appear this way. These are great as they’re off~shots which UTB always goes with whenever their affiliated with any pb release so there a bit different from the pb’s contents~. Also speaking of pbs Kanno Miho many years ago released~* what remains as one of the rarest of idol pbs and especially when you consider the point of her career in which she released it and just how popular an idol~♥ she was then….pretty early!!…as it was a nude* pb~. And you gotta love its title. Simply ‘Nudity’….an idol can’t get much more straight forward than that =O!! Between Kanno Miho and the publisher it was agreed that it would be strictly released in a limited pressing back then….just thought about it now, sorry it’s a bit off~topic xD.

    • lol I just clicked~* on of of her photos and they’re surely full sized as they were scanned….omg it’s gigantic =O. The program I’m using shrinks them quite a bit and it does help to save space =).

        Gigantic scans = love 😀

        Thanks so much!

        I love the more natural looking shots she did back in the day, but I’ve never been able to get my grubby paws on this PB. Something to think about I guess lol.

        Yeah, about that PB… I think there was a lot of controversy around it and a bunch of rumors, plus the crying at the press conference and whatnot… anyway looking back at it nearly 15 years later (wow, has it been that long?) it was actually pretty tasteful and artistic. And one of the most traded still!

        • You’re so welcome~* =). I love the photography style too and it’d be a wonderful collectible to have!! I always think thank goodness for auctions as you can usually find most anything you’re looking for and then there’s also the Amazon Japan marketplace although you’d need to ask a proxy for help in purchasing those…still worth it as there seems to be even rarer items there at times.

          U~n time really flies…..I have a copy of this pb but it hasn’t left my bookshelf in quite a long time, I always feel a bit bashful just thinking about it (*´艸`)。
