In an age of surprise graduations I honestly never saw Nana’s graduation coming from afar, I mean at just age 23 now (albeit NMB48’s youthfulness cannot be overlooked…), it all seemed a bit premature albeit personal reasons pretty much obliterate all other reasoning for sure =). And it’s quite the journey to the top in which Nana traveled with her idol origins being groomed through the Hello! Project “farm” system leading to a brief co-leading role within a small unit which eventually led her to the outer gates of the idol mecca in NMB48. Furthermore when you consider Nana’s ascent to Team leader within NMB48 with additional activity started with SKE48 it’s even more surprising that her graduation came so quickly thereafter. This past April 3rd marked Nana’s graduation day and it wasn’t until recently that I realized that it was actually her birthday coinciding on that memorable date! ^^ Now think date! date! date! Now that title makes sense right =).
Now about the surprise of Nana’s graduation one need not look any further than her announcement itself and while her future plans are vaguely clued here you gotta love Sayanne’s initial knee jerk reaction here =P as well as the general expressions and reactions of her fellow members all around which speak volumes even in silence at times…still it’s Sayanee’s snarkiness which rules no doubt! And it’s endearing in a humorous way how Nana’s age inevitably comes up instantly with the mention of graduating, I mean NMB48 are sooooo young!!…not that Nana was deemed by any stretches of the imagination of being too old to be an idol any longer NO NO not so the case but still that whole age thing was like an ongoing joke amongst her peers and I do have to wonder how that could weigh on one’s mind over any length of time whether in good honest humor or not. Well it must be said how great Sayanee is here doing her very best “Takamina” in celebrating ~*~~* the moment for Nana…well um minus her “referring” to Nana as a ‘man’ LOL =P
And now we wish~* Nana the very best in her future endeavors as she transcends into the next stage and adventure of her life and career wherever her heart so desires =).
I’ve always adored Nana’s modest demeanor and her oh~so~cutesy voice!! And now I also adore her expressions of a “growl” to a most awesome pout (。ーωー。)笑！
I was honestly tempted to create this mini Nana♥ dialogue bubble fiasco centered around her wonderful expressions here but then the dialogue in my head got a bit racy* so sorry no wacky idol comic today (*≧▽≦)！
How can one not LOVE her pout here! So cute!
Oh and did you notice the 8 mini images atop this post? They’re representative of the four possible reversible posters you can receive with the purchase of this commemorative shashinshuu, that being you get one out of the four as they’re randomly inserted extras =). Here just below is the poster I received (front & back)….
Okay so this book isn’t technically a “Shashinshuu” per se and rather is a “photo book” which means that in addition to the wonderful photos inside you’ll be also getting a true commemorative gem which is all about Nana♥ through the ways of an extensive interview which goes outside her idol life as well as within, wonderful photographs dating back to the baby~Nana days till now, a fun visual trip around Nana’s hometown, a visual history of Nana’s mv performances, snapshots of Nana’s final stage performance, messages from fellow group members and fittingly a meeting of the minds between Nana & Sayanee which in itself is a highlight of this entire book!…and much much more! ^^
You are about to enter the sexy to sultry, to snarly, to pouty
to fun Nana♥ Zone!
Nana fan? Then you surely need to get this book for your own personal collection…. and I’m sure this all out preview will convince you to purchase ^^!
Here’s what the real covers look like (front & back) as they’re hidden just underneath the glossy outer dust jacket! Oh and I almost forgot to mention here, Nana’s sotsugyou memorial photo book is B5 sized with the gravure photography being printed on glossy paper while the remainder of the book is printed upon non-glossy quality stock paper…. enjoy ^^!
