Okay besides the obvious appearance of Mayuyu♥ gracing its cover this issue was a must have for its cover commemoration of the special temporary group Otona AKB48 whom are slated to appear on AKB’s upcoming single “Kokoro no Placard” which includes Mayuyu, Naanya, Kojimako, Paruru, Ricchan & Tsukamoto Mariko. According to the WP article there were 5066 applicants hoping to appear in Otona AKB48 as this group would be looking for an adult member although I’m not sure of the age requirements but nonetheless an ‘adult’ member. Covergirl Tsukamoto Mariko (Mariri) was the winner for this temp group and she will appear as the center in the coupling with song “Oshiete Mommy.” Here I’ve cut open and scanned Mariri’s solo pictorial which opens this issue. Some of the pages in WP are quite sheer creating a bit of a challenge so I hope these scans turned out okay =).

    Love the choco-clothes too! Great photos. Mayuyu simply magic. Having watched her early appearances in AKBingo, it’s so interesting to see how Paruru has changed over the past few years, and how amazingly subtle her expressiveness has become: there’s such a lot going on under the surface. She photographs amazingly well. The double page scans must have been a problem to scan, but it all look mighty fine. Thank you!

    Another one that was in the run for OtonaAKB was Ichii Sayaka. She seems to keep showing up out of nowhere every two years or so, I remember hearing twice before that she was going to debut with a band or something and then nothing ever comes out of it. It’s a bit sad to see it, she was one of those members who just quit at the wrong time and then doesn’t seem to know what to do about it. Maybe she’d had a chance if she had done something else closer to her time on Momusu, but now? I doubted she had any chance to get through this audition just BECAUSE she was once in Momusu, it’d be very strange to get someone with previous experience in this audition as I think the whole idea was to put someone really out of place into the group (in this case, by age difference) and see what happens.

    Mariri did great, she’s been appearing regularly on AKBINGO and it’s had some funny moments. She’s definitely doing her best, and I think most would agree, she’s done a bit too much. Remember when Taka-san would make fun of Yasuda by telling her to do some cute pose, or blow a kiss to the camera, and then start doing some reactions where the Utaban CG guys just went crazy with all the special effects? Well, Mariri is 24/7 adopting that “Yasuda trying to be cute” style of out-of-place idoling. It’s a bit annoying sometimes, and she’s been made fun of for it already, but it’s all in good fun. At least it’s pretty obvious she’s aiming for it, whether that was her idea or what she was told to do, so I’m sure we’re all allowed to laugh. Maybe. And, was it one week ago?, she had her theater debut, and announced her graduation, so I guess I can already say she’s done a great job, much better than I expected from the latest AKB gimmick.

      Oh, and Paruru! Paruru is amazing. Because it’s all an act, she’s really a very adorable girl with a beautiful smile. I’ve been watching very old Ariyoshi AKB Kyowakoku, an AKB show that generally promotes a lot of Kenkyuusei, and Paruru was one of them right at the beginning, first episode of that (2010). You should see her in that, looks like another person. It’s like she’s the anti-Kame. Kamei started very similarly, and eventually opened up and turned into the craziest, most fun member of her time, while Paruru went the other way and got all reserved and smileless. I don’t mind it, I like Paruru now.
