~ 「TGIF!」Idol♥’s unzipped on way back Fridays (Volume 78)

Idols unzipped...

Happy Aloha~♥ Friday ^^!

A quick update on email-messages, it’s going okay for the most part as I’m going through them in an inverted order and funny…you don’t realize how many you may get each day until you say don’t open it up for about a month. Some e-mails were time sensitive, that being the primary issue thus far that and an ever growing inventory. So this week’s been most pleasant with the hurricane-like winds of last week/weekend finally passed us but not without leaving damage on most islands in some form or another. Cool nights this week and mildly warm days, can’t complain =).

Abe Natsumi History Album

For tonight’s Unzipped♥ we’ll be taking a look at a really cute Nacchi collectible from a little over a decade ago. It’s a Nacchi ‘history album’ which dates from January 1998 till January 2004 and what makes this album so cute is how it resembles or rather is much like a personal photo album complete with those tacky photo sheets and a cover which is reminiscent of a craft album as its exteriors are covered with a textured cloth all around. This collectible also comes housed in a outer box bearing the collection’s name in a golden print and the book is a wonderful hard cover release.

Abe Natsumi History Album...

Yup you know those old school family photo album tacky cardboard pages, here however each page is doubly thick black cardboard and Nacchi’s~♥ photos do come already set up inside which is really a relief as anyone who’s dealt with these style of photo sheets surely knows of just what a challenge preventing those often times inevitable air bubbles under the clear sheets can be!

The opening pages here include a message from Nacchi~♥ while the final two pages (posted at post’s end) include personal messages from her fellow Momusu。group-mates =-). Mmm remember using those silver ink pens for writing on your friends’ yearbooks back in school?

In all there are twenty photos inside with each being given a brief timeline description opening with a photo from 1998 taken during the filming of Morning Cop (keiji) still one of the best soundtracks right!!…other photos here highlighting Morning Musume。 “Happy New Year” concerts, Morning Musume’s。 “Pinch Runner” movie, the awesome “LOVE Century” musical (Morning Town and Ribbon no kishi only getting better with each!!), Pocky CM, shuffle unit 10nin Matsuri, the iconic music video for “The Peace” (shot in the stalls, still what an awesomely original idea and song!~!), the iconic idol show “Hello Morning”, “Koinu dan no monogatari” (okay be honest this movie made you cry didn’t it, Momusu, Hello! Project Kids before they were inevitable stars and of course that oh so cute and cuddly doggie~♥ here in this photo w/Nacchi =D!~!), Okeisan to Abe Natsumi single project (long before there was “Oshiete Mommy” there was “Haha to musume no duet song” ^^) and closing this nostalgic Nacchi memory lane booklet are photos from 2003 including my most favorite here that being a Nacchi~♥ photo from her visit to the islands for Morning Musume’s fan club tour in Hawaii~ *^^.

    Wow! Amazing. Never seen this wonderful object before. Isn’t it amazing. Was this a one-off, or did any of the other members have something like this? Star treatment, if she was the only one!

    • It may be unique to Nacchi’s collectibles I think as I haven’t seen other members having one of these memory albums just yet. It has such a personal touch to it as it’s very much like a family photo album and I so love that they used the school yearbook friendly silver ink pens…gives even more of a personal touch.
