Matsumura SayuriIkuta Erika
When I entered the elevator, I got to be with “Karaage Shimai”! 📷 Akimoto Manatsu
Yoda Yuki
Perhaps it’s because she was so hungry, she dashed for the sweets immediately even though she still has her bag on her back! 📷 Akimoto Manatsu
Ikuta Erika
She was making scary face, and when I faced the camera to her, she was so into it. It was funny! 📷 Itou Marika
Shiraishi Mai
“Still not done with the questionnaire~”Mai-chan said, who looks like she’s about to cry (lol) 📷 Wakatsuki Yumi
Hoshino MinamiTakayama Kazumi
These two, who are strongly loved by everyone, doing a cute pose. The natural charm 📷 Itou Marika
Kubo Shiori

Saito Asuka

Etou MisaWakatsuki Yumi
“Do you think it is still alright for us to wear school uniforms?” said by Waka and Misa who seems worried (lol) 📷 Akimoto Manatsu
Nishino NanaseAkimoto Manatsu Sear this scenery of these two people’s lovely dovey shot in your eyes
Before, it was impossible for them to have this kind of a 2-shot (lol). But now, they even did the “Yes, Fall in Love”pose! In Zenkoku Tour, since we had to perform my unit song with Naa-chan and Reika (Sakurai), “Rewind Ano Hi”, we did voice training altogether, and we talked a lot to each other. I’m so happy since it’s rare for us to have such unit song. Manatsu
has been a substitute of some members when appearing in a TV show, and I thought that it was amazing for her to carry such a big important role. Even in the shadows, she still reviews her work properly. I want to follow her example of doing such great effort!
📷 Wakatsuki Yumi
Yes #Fallinlove
Ozono MomokoShiraishi Mai
Mai-chan and Momoko look like they’re having fun!
In the early days, Momoko was still a cry-baby. I didn’t expect for her to grow so fast like now, she’s close to the 1st gen (lol). Anyway, I’m really happy for our kohai’s growth! 📷 Wakatsuki Yumi
Shinuchi MaiWakatsuki YumiSakurai ReikaInoue SayuriEtou MisaIkoma RinaAkimoto Manatsu
Making memories in my last photo shoot
We visited Kamakura to have a photo shooting for the jacket cover of “Itsuka Dekiru Kara Kyou Dekiru”. We were against wearing school uniform, but in the end, everyone was into it and I felt like we have become young somehow (lol) For me, since it’s the last photo shooting for the jacket cover I’m spending with them, I’ve suddenly remembered our early days. I’ve somewhat felt nostalgic. 📷 Itou Marika

Asuka was applying a cream on her legs, and when I tried taking a picture of her, she suddenly showed me her hand that was full of cream (lol) When we were having a Zenkoku Tour, Asuka performed “Baretta”and it was very amazing. Besides me, some members were also saying at the backstage “So sexy!” She is so good in showing expressions, and I am also jealous of her style! Even when I try to look cool when dancing, it’s a pity that I always end up looking funny. When I tried to dance “Influencer” with all my best, fans told me, “You were trying to look cool, aren’t you?” (lol) That’s not true, okay~? 📷 Akimoto Manatsu

It’s best when Naachan gives that girlfriend aura with just a glance!
In the dressing room, there is Naachan who often looks at her phone
while she listens to music. When I tried talking to her as I point the camera to her,
she said “Hm?” Then just like that, she just looked at me. Even when I’m a girl, it’s so amazing that she can give that girlfriend aura with just a gaze! I’m happy that Naachan’s been teasing me again recently just like before. Last time, when we appeared together in a radio, in my unit song with Maiyan “Ma ii ka?”, there’s that line saying “Chikitacchi” (voice percussion part) and she said it wrong intentionally. She made fun of me (lol) 📷 Akimoto Manatsu

close to Momoko and Yoda-chan!

Little devil Yoda-chan *heart thump*
 Yoda-chan who’s sleeping at the sofa during waiting time. She seems to be more like a “little devil” than “seductive”. Just like when our eyes met, she tilted her head while smirking. Last time, she was in a hurry and it was cute. Maichun and I even said, “Isn’t she cute?” together. 📷 Akimoto Manatsu

She looks very mature so I thought she is in high school now, but I was surprised to know that she is only a 3rd year in middle school! 📷 Higuchi Hina
She’s seriously scanning “Delicious Meat”. I want Big Eater Project to be held someday. 📷 Wakatsuki Yumi
A sexy adult Misa, showing a “You can’t~ <3” pose! 📷 Wakatsuki Yumi

She has a strong image of always having serious expression, but when she smiles, it is really cute! 📷 Wakatsuki Yumi           
Birthday Surprise for Asuka on Sendai Tour!
Asuka’s birthday was on the day before the “Manatsu no Zenkoku Tour” on Sendai starts, so we presented her a wonderful cake. “It’s only in times like this~”, she said happily as she’s being surrounded by us. I’m
glad that we were able to celebrate. Asuka is in the same generation as me. She is younger than me, but I don’t feel that she is an imouto. She’s so
small and cute, but can be a very reliable person too. Anyway, I was curious about the character printed on Asuka’s T-shirt, so I asked her, “What’s that?” and she answered, “I don’t know” (lol).

Discovering Nanase sleeping while she listents to music
When I suddenly looked at her,  Naa-chan was in a deep sleep. While I’m
thinking of saying “Otsukaresama~” to her, I’ve pushed the shutter (lol) The earphone was seating well in her ears, that’s why she won’t wake up. When I heard a little bit of what she’s listening into, I’ve heard a lively song. I felt that she’s really sleeping well, isn’t she?
📷 Wakatsuki Yumi
Momoko’s overflowing love for tomatoes.
Momoko has her super favorite tomatoes putted in a box (lol). I also love tomatoes, so sometimes I get some. Recently, I’ve been borrowing Momoko’s stuffed toy “Garusuke” and when I was hugging it, “Yuri-san,
do you need that right now?” she said. It seems that she wanted me to return it to her (lol)

Weekly Buzz!
At the backstage, where members stayed after a hot live, are concerned about…
It was very hot at the venue of the concert, everyone were so sweaty. When I pointed the camera to the 4 people who happened to be there, Minami and Waka were wiping out Naa-chan’s sweats. Since it was really hot there, I felt like want to say “Hurry, I want to take off my clothes!”. But I guess it’s all worthy to hold this hot live. After I graduate, I can’t do
a live together with the others. So, starting with this year’s “National Summer Tour”, I think I was able to enjoy fully any kinds of activities together with them!

Asuka’s Horror Show?
There was a black curtain at the backyard of the live venue. And as I wait, Asuka’s face appeared from the black curtain… It kinda look like a horror, I was scared (lol). But since she seems to be  good with this kind of “Monoboke”, she’s really into it. It was so cute. 📷Wakatsuki Yumi
Asuka who came from different dimension
Cunningly cute Manatsu Roll
While I‘m wrapping the scarf aound her, she gave me a look that says, “Hey, isn’t this cute?”, and since I didn’t have any choice, I took a picture of her (lol). Manatsu’s strong character is really the best within the group. It’s really different when she’s around and not. 📷Itou Marika
