Been quite a long gap between Hinako posts, this is actually her first one for this year. Used to average about one mag spread post a month for her, each one had 3-4 spreads which means she appeared on so many of them for a long spell. Don't know why she hasn't been appearing in as many, it's really not like she's been all that busy this year.
Hinako did make the transition from gravure model to actress quite smoothly, was in a bunch of dramas in 2014 though not many roles were that big. Last year she was only in two dramas but the roles were much bigger, saw her in 'Siren" and thought she had the potential to be an okay actress. This year though she hasn't appeared in any dramas or films, can't recall seeing her at any promo event either so wondering if perhaps Hinako just wanted a long break.
Hinako is also overdue for a new photobook, she had one that came out in October 2014 for her 20th birthday but none since then. Just three Young Jump spreads for today, called this post #1 though as there hopefully should be a few more of them this year. Pics above are older ones, you'll notice she's cut her hair these days but still looks mighty fine though I may prefer her longer locks. First off is this fabulous set of pics from their March 7th issue.
Smaller spread from Young Jump #17.
Sadly the quantity is lacking but at least the quality isn't as Hinako looks A-OK in these pics, final set are brand new ones from the July 4th issue.
