Sure there's going to be many tremendous photobooks released this year, there's already been a few excellent ones. May be too early in the year to say it but bet Nana's first PB could be #1 for 2018, what a pleasant surprise it was hearing she'd be having a book. With almost all of the old veterans gone AKB needs a new superstar, to me Nana would be the logical and best choice. She'll be the center for the first time on the group's next single "Jaabaaja" that will be released on March 14th.
Title of Nana's first PB is "Kazaranai Hoseki", it's cover and a few advance promo pics.
Nana also held her first solo concert back on January 16th and unlike AKB shows it was a live concert. Nana didn't do many of the older hits but some covers of other J-Pop hits along with some AKB rarities that her Team 4 had done as B-sides.
Was hoping there would have been a few more mag spreads for the new book as there's just two for today but perhaps there will be others in the coming weeks. Nana does look so outstanding in the sets which feature outtakes from the new PB, first off is from the February 27th issue of Flash.
Whew, that bottom pic above is Hall of Fame worthy.... 😰
On to the second spread which is from the March 9th edition of Friday.
Pics for the photobook were shot in Hawaii which is a popular place for that to happen. Today, which is the 27th, Nana's first PB was released and a fan greeting session was held for it at the Fukuya bookstore in Shinjuku. Plenty of superb pics which is followed by a video of the event.
