~Deep Thoughts with Nana~
(aka: Yamada Nana is suspicious)
While the standard of adorability will no doubt remain as the norm for idol pictorials, it’s most refreshing to every now and then appreciate the artistic side to idol photography.
So in that vein of thought today I’ve scanned four of the five pictorials from the latest issue of 20+ Sweet and as per usual you’ll probably readily know just how big of a sucker I am for magazine covers in particular as all a publisher really need do in order to tickle ~* my fancy to grab a copy is place a fave idol upon their cover and with the added promise of adequate inner content as well….it’s pretty certain to be a done deal for me =).
Enter Covergirl Mayuyu whom may soon ascend to my personal Oshi~♥ throne, that though is pending on whether or not she succeeds in tugging at my heartstrings even more than Sasshi whom as aforementioned here is currently locked into an all out Oshi grudge match tie where there can only be one, less I betray the solemn oath of Oshi-monogamy．．．． (;゜□゜)！！！Much like the style of photography you’ll also find in Switch, 20+Sweet takes on a most artistic approach with their (interview accompanying; note: I’ve included just Mayuyu’s interview article portion) photography and as you’ll see within the pages of this latest issue, this style of approach where taking a profound precedence are lighting, wardrobe, atmosphere and the very ambiance of the photo shoots, it lends to a much different light in which your celebrity/ idol faves are revealed.
And in particular it’s NMB48’s Nana whom looks soooooo different in her pictorial here!! Her styling and makeup are just part of the equation of a much more mature appearing Nana….and (sigh*) it seems just like yesterday that Nana was pouring milk on herself.
Also beautifully featured here are of course Covergirl Mayuyu who’s embodying gorgeous ~~> Goddess!!! Stunning!! Stunning photos I think you’ll agree and in particular those in that oh~soooooo beautiful golden dress atop those majestic steps!, HKT48’s Rabutan who’s channeling a most ladylike side to herself & last but certainly not least is SUPER☆GiRLS’ Shimura Rika whom has this issue’s sensual side all locked up to herself in images of warm glamour and intimacy~.
A number of photos flow across two pages, however I opted to scan just one of the pages as this magazine is actually larger than the surface area of my scanner making any hopes of getting the two opposing images anywhere near to being seamlessly together not a possibility.
Downside is that full impact of these vibrant images loses a significant aspect of their shine as you can see both above and below are just two examples of two such photos featuring Mayuyu where my single page scans doesn’t quite do them justice.
