When it comes to WP covers sure you’re expecting sensual covers and yet even with this pretense…..Koike Rina’s cover here is off the charts sexy wouldn’t you say!! And just a thought here which comes instantly as men should at all costs try to avoid the beach-Speedo look and that of a plumber …..it’s so okay for idols to embrace their inner-plumber as Rina~chan proves here up-front =)! In all seriousness though gosh ~* what a cover!!! And so while Koike Rina’s latest shashinshuu is yet to be scanned here I’m pretty certain that her pictorial within which was released on the heels of said photo book will do very well for now ^^.
And speaking of the celebration of new shashinshuu you’ve probably already seen Yuumin’s~♥ first solo pictorial posted here recently and yet even in retrospect why not celebrate a bit more as a ‘preview’ pictorial is included herein and it also appears that her live event is just about to start. And with Otona AKB48’s Mariri now graduated for some time sadly =( …..she does leave us with one last graduation gravure feature which closes this issue and who could possibly not have fallen head over heels in hearing/seeing “Oshiete Mommy!!!” which was officially released with AKB48’s latest single “Kokoro no placard!! They made such a uniquely perfect unit too but alas Mariri did move on and yet when she speaks of her unique experience and chance at the idol-ling genre it’s all so wonderful so I’m just happy that we did get one exceptional release for sure.
Also featured in this issue are Hazuki Aya, Takasaki Shoko, Ono Nonoka, Nakayama Yuka, Sugihara Anri who’s been photographed here by the iconic guitarist SUGIZO of Luna Sea fame!!…and while she’s doing the whole under-book bikini look here xD I’ll have to give this one a pass as it was done by SUGIZO =P!, Tani Mayuri and a bonus AKB48 Team 8 insert feature which actually opens this issue and makes for a most convenient of ways to meet and learn a bit about each girl~ …and furthermore what’s really great about the girls of Team 8 is that all of the members are from different prefectures in Japan making for a most diverse grouping for sure ^^.
