Miyawaki Sakura first shashinshuu SAKURA with two~sided poster

Just released on July 8th and already gone missing from Cdjapan’s site is Miyawaki Sakura’s very first shashinshuu! But not to worry as all 144 pages of Sakuratan’s~♡ adorableness is still very much availabe @ both HMV Japan as well as Amazon Japan as far as major online retailers go =).

If you wanna talk momentum or rather a high percentile pick to be heir to the idol throne one day then you really need not look elsewhere as Sakura’s rise to fan favorite as well as media darling has been nothing short of meteoric ~*~~* I’d say ^^! And while shashinshuu won’t typically include much text if any unlike its cousin the “Photo book” which interestingly is pretty much an actual direct translation of the term “shashinshuu” (book~~>album/ small~~>tiny/ fast~~>quick …you get the idea!) =P …. and yet six out of “Sakura”’s final seven pages chronicles this most adorable idol’s growth from her birthplace of Kagoshima then to Fukuoka onward to Tokyo. Consider it a condensed history if you will as Sakura’s childhood is revealed through some of the cutestJames Lipton photos! and text leading all the way up to her audition and climb into Family48 and as an Ace member of HKT48. And for her fans whom dearly miss her much longer hairstyle there’s even a few cutie photos where one can reminisce (oh so adorable there w/ fruit or in plaid with hair even longer than I’d ever seen it ^^) and it’s pretty remarkable what a girl can experience in just 17 years till now YES! “The Story of Sakura’s Own Life 1998-2015”  as it is titled here, consider it a real highlight of this shashshinshuu as it may make you ponder the question” Just why hasn’t James Lipton come a calling just yet??! I mean Sakura has done her fair share of acting whether it be in mv’s or otherwise hasn’t she, ….and with so many life experiences to share!…. plus her growing up photos are soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute!!!! I predict upon hosting her, James Lipton would smile, laugh, blush and then move to Japan (。ーωー。)笑!btw Will Ferell does a wicked James Lipton =)! And if you’re wondering why am I suddenly speaking about James Lipton?….just had an odd mind wandering moment there is all ^^. Anyway …. “Sakura” is a B5 sized shashinshuu which measures approximately 10 inches by 7 inches, is a soft cover edition with outer glossy dust jacket & obi and its pages are printed on non-glossy good quality paper. And as is true with all of Family48’s shashinshuu, “Sakura” is most fan friendly when it comes to its price tag which is most attractive at just 1500 yen ^^. And when it comes to Sakura’s styling herein, much like its title’s imagery might suggest with its season ….it’s a very active pictorial featuring school sport’s wear, seifuku, an array of casual wear, cute mizugi!, one particular layered pink dress which is most stunning!! …. and down to not much if anything at all? Consider that latter being most reminiscent of one particular Koike Rina styled photo shoot of recent times which insinuates bedroom~sexy (・o・)!!

Each shashinshuu also includes a B3 two-sided poster (above my favorite side is: Sakura + seifuku = ♥) which are randomly inserted as there are four different designs in all.

Here I’ve scanned in its entirety “Sakura” and note: while posts dated after September 12th, 2010 have scanned photo book images which are somewhat small in size, the original scans are of a much higher resolution (3MB-4MB sized each scan). The reasoning being is to keep posts browser friendly so while upping them my program automatically shrinks them into a much smaller and internet browser friendly size, just in case you’re  curious as to why older posts (originally Vox posts) here have full sized images versus newer posts =).

    This is a top production, isn’t it. Great photos, great locations. What’s not to like! (I had bookmarked this on CDJapan, but bought something else instead…) Wish I could read ‘Sakura’s story’ at the end, but maybe one day I’ll be able to… It’s great to have the spontaneous performance photos included, alongside the carefully arranged modelling shots, as it adds an extra dimension. Thank you for scanning this wonderful book.

    • Just out of curiosity could you please see if your link still works? I had gotten the impression that Cdjapan had sold out of “Sakura” as it didn’t show up no matter how I searched there just yesterday, but then again books can always come back into stock on any given day =). U~n they did a wonderful justice to Sakura~♥ no doubt! ….she really is being highlighted as an Ace should be and I imagine the love from her management and producers won’t slow down a bit from here as far as the dialogue here is concerned you really get that impression overall whether it be through undertones or directly. I absolutely adored her baby and growing up personal photos!!! Just like taking a little peek into her family’s photo album, so cute! Un I’d seen that they’re releasing a “Young Members” Tour concert too very soon! Such a perfect way to further promote the younger up and comers into a large media format. Honesty I wasn’t expecting any such “Koike Rina”-gravure styled photos here so those were like Woah! sexy Sakura upped the ante =O!

        • Hi Denny! Looks like the three of us can form a little Sakura~♡ adore club ….well among the many already out there =). Family48 produces always amazing photo collections and unlike most other idol♡ franchises theirs have always been most fan friendly when it comes to pricing around that 1500 yen mark while most others are nearer to 2800 yen and up ….Sakura’s is definitely a must have ^^.

        HI mb. No, there’s no longer any mention of the book on CDJapan. It’s more than likely to be reprinted, though, given the interest!

        • And with each additional pressing an additional level of prestige will be reached too ^^! Just out of curiosity, do you prefer Sakura with a shorter or longer hairstyle? ^^

            The more mature, shorter bob, definitely. It worked for Akarin too.

            • Un =) Sakura does look so cute with the bob! …and she really does match either look which is so lucky as sometimes facial types look much better with only a few hairstyles. I’m not sure if Mayuyu would match a bob cut very well …..here’s to hoping she never cuts it as I ask selfishly =)!

    Reblogged this on Denny Sinnoh and commented:
    Thank you to WordPress blogger MorningBerryz for posting some scans from the new Sakura Miyawaki photo book.
    As I write this, it is very difficult to justify why I like the HKT48, or even Idol music in general.
    If you kids thought it was hard to explain to non-anime fans “why you like anime” … well multiply that by about a million times and you might understand how I feel when I must justify or explain “why I like the Japanese Idol genre.” It is just one of the musical forms I appreciate.
    It might also be hard to explain why I especially think that Miss Sakura Miyawaki is incredibly adorable. HKT48, no … AKB48 would not be the same without this young rising star. Every judgmental ninny wants to call me a “dirty old man”, and assume that I am ogling her in a sexual way. I most certainly am NOT, and I take offense at that. Sakura-tan is a positive, life-affirming young woman. She is probably the best example of what is RIGHT with this world.
    She is also as ATHLETIC AS I AM, as you may see at time 40 to 50 seconds in the video preview below.

    I love watching here perform for HKT48. If you look at the bank of HKT live performances, you can watch her grow up, and develop her talents. Perhaps I will post a series of them. (Oh, yeah right – Ms. Dranocrotch will accuse me of something.)
    I am probably not in the market for the photobooks. Young guys may like some of the more risqué photos. Really none of them are risqué, they just show how sweet the young idol is.
    I also loved that the book includes photos from Sakura’s childhood. It helps a fan to see her as a real person, and we can appreciate her even more.

    • Thank you~♥ again Denny for the reblog =) ….the more sales generated for Sakura the better!~! A~h I enjoyed her PB clip you’ve embedded here! She does have the most awesome running style doesn’t she! ….so so adorable! Ah there’s a special DVD you can receive by means of a code you get with the shashinshuu however I don’t think it’s released quite yet, not sure I’d have to go check on the date again but I don’t believe they’ll send it outside of Japan though =/.

      Un the Japanese idol culture is something most unique in the world and it’s easy to fall in love with if you love the Japanese culture~♥. I believe even if I weren’t Japanese I’d still definitely be a fan of their idols, music and culture as it’s all so beautiful and there’s simply nothing like great J-Pop, nothing in the world like it! Enjoy your idol fandom and no need to explain as fans alike totally get it ^^.
