Manoeri’s♥ first standard sized shashinshuu in a year and four months! “Manochan~Dear Friends~” is also quite special to me personally as it was shot entirely right here in Hawaii and on the island of Oahu o(*´∀｀)o゛～！！！Hard to imagine that it’s already been over seven months since she’s graduated from Hello! Project as she continues to pursue a career in acting as she’s gone the television drama route thus far. And while Manoeri could have easily graduated as well from the idol-life it’s nice to see that she’s not quite shed that persona of hers just yet as evidence by this photo book release as well as its soon to be released accompanying image DVD (making of) which is set for an October 23rd release date! Manoeri continues to favor her shorter cut which she’s been fashioning since earlier this year and with a visit to Hawaii there’s sure to be an abundance of sunshine, beaches, bikinis, rainbow shaved ice, once piece, two piece, surf, malasadas, floral beauty and of course one famous shrimp truck to go along with a lot more! In a single expression the overall feel of “Manochan…” has to be ‘genki’ as a carefree to casual Manoeri shines adorably throughout this photo collection cover to cover. The photo book measures approximately 10 1/4” x 7 1/4” and is a soft cover edition with glossy outer dust jacket while the pages within are non glossy high quality thick stock paper. A making of DVD is also included which runs just over eleven minutes. (note: the black and white scans above which mirror the ‘cover’ images are actually the true cover (front & back) images as found underneath the book’s dust jacket.)

I ended up scanning nearly the entire photo book save for just a handful or so of pages…♥! Make sure to keep an eye out for Manobutt, Manocleavage, Manopajama and Manomalasada…just a few of the Mano-sides featured herein =).
