Won't be the biggest of posts as it was a spur of the moment decision to do it but think there's plenty of Manaka pics to get her some new fans. To me Manaka's looks have changed the most since the group began and it's been almost two years since they formed. These are some of her first pics and they're from the Torizaka46.jp site and hmmmm, you may be wondering what that site is. It's now defunct though still up, when Keya first started Torizaka46 was their original name.
As customary for a solo post pics from the August 21, 2015 press conference where they introduced the members and you have to squint to see Manaka.
Will give you once chance to guess who her fave Nogi member is.... you're wrong!!!!
No doubt the biggest difference is her hair color but then again aging two years will usually improve your looks. Keya has a huge horse lover as you all(should) know, think it's time for management to push Manaka as the group's biggest lover of Nekos!
Will eventually get around to doing a 'pairs post' for this duo, they are the best looking twosome in Keya and there are many pics of them together.
Manaka's character in the 'Zankoku' drama is named Keito, she's #10. Keito is kind of a quiet student and we haven't seen enough of her through six episodes. But seems every show 3-4 member's roles are bigger so let's hope that happens with Manaka's character soon.
On to some superb looking Manaka mag spreads and there have been a few recent ones. Don't think she's affiliated with a magazine which is a shame as I'd like to see her on the catwalk with the other members. First off is a terrific set of pics from Young Magazine #34 which came out two weeks ago.
Many Manaka spreads but just noticed most of them aren't big enough for the most fashion conscious member of Keya. Three pics each from the March and August editions of Bubka.
Final Manaka spread is from the August issue of BLT. After the pics check out a somewhat entertaining video which is a compilation for a few of Manaka's segments from 'KeyaBingo!' and 'Keyakitte', really fine one with 1/2 of W-Watanabe.
