SWITCH November 2012 (Sashihara Rino)

So happy my November issue of SWITCH magazine arrived today!! SWITCH remains as one of the premier Japanese entertainment and culture publications and you can count on whomever is featured on their covers to have a most extensive article feature inside!!!

Sasshi~♥ is November’s covergirl and to support the aforementioned content here her feature runs an astounding 32 pages long! SWITCH is not only known for their insightful and diverse articles and interviews covering some of the most popular artists, actors, actresses and trends, styles and pop culture in Japan but also for their wonderful photography which accompanies much of their content. Each issue is also printed on thick glossy paper and features an extra thick and glossy cover and backing as well as a flat spine and with a price of just 780 yen it’s definitely a publication worth every yen!

Sasshi’s interview covers just about everything imaginable from idol life, her personal dreams and goals, her new found role as producer (which is most awesome!!), her place in HKT48, personal blogging, her former group AKB48, her second solo single and much much more.

And speaking of her second solo single aside from all of the speculation, rumors, AkiP perhaps still punishing her or conspiracy theories out there here in SWITCH Sasshi helps to set the record straight in her own words taking on the question with her thoughts and reaction to her second solo single not being so much a ‘solo’ effort at all perhaps, with three other girls sharing or on some versions of the single actually fronting ahead of Sasshi herself. Upon reading through the article one can’t help but take notice of just how mature and self sufficient Sasshi is and in a sense she’s so way ahead of her age this way. Like they say, when you get knocked down….your character and fight within you will determine your attitude and perseverance to get right back up and fight on ー(* ̄O ̄)ノ!

Here Sasshi expresses her thoughts and explains what it meant for her second solo single to have in part her featured in the background (note: Sasshi does front the single depending on which version you purchase).

And here’s the rest of the complete article which is accompanied by some of the very best Sasshi photos I think and I so love the photo where Sasshi is posing against the background of some very fun and creative 3D art! It’s a vampire giant vampire holding a wine glass ‘over’ her….so so cool!!!

Lastly there’s also a special section where Sasshi introduces all 16 of her fellow HKT48 members via some extremely adorable one~on~one photos with Sasshiko commentary which gives a quick insight into their individual personalities and ‘roles’ in the group and as idols♥~. And in return the final page has her fellow members answering a two question survey aimed at Sasshi herself…great stuff, enjoy! ^^。

Sasshi’s boxing photos are the best!!!! One of her best photo shoots ever I think!! And they serve perfectly in an analogy sense here of Sasshi the fighter at heart~♥.

    • Sasshi’s literally a fighter in heart and in a headstrong sense, she’s endured a lot over the past few months and she’s really reached successes persevering so much \(^o^)/ ☆!Love this particular photo shoot and when I pre~ordered the magazine I had no idea that the cover and photo shoot would have such a cool boxing theme and that being so symbolic of her it fits so well. Mmmm….probably just a small family get together♥ ^ ^. Thank you Mikey!

    • So so true!!! Sasshi’s sweetness would make him a sweet vampire as well lol =P! 3D art is so cool! I saw a special about it on t.v. awhile back and it’s amazing how at from a distance those paintings can look so much like they have a real depth to them…this one’s really great and I love Sasshi’s expression here so cute!
