The title says #4 for this year but there have been many more spreads as I've been having them in solo posts and slowing down on posts for the group. Nogi's twentieth single "Synchronicity" will be coming out in April 25th and it's a tie-in with their new Haruyama CM's. For the first time since the group's sixth single "Girls Rule!" Mai will have the center position all by herself.
There's been no official announcement but wouldn't doubt if this is last single with Nogi. Mai has recently said she's graduating from being a model for the Larme and Ray magazines as she's slowly cutting her outside ties from some reason. Don't know why she would leave those mags, if she does graduate soon she'll need some sort of income and she has to be one of the highest paid Idols these days, third perhaps?
Least there were a few changes for the new single, Ranze is back and don't understand why she was ever demoted. Hina makes a reappearance too, both are in the third row and I can't understand why Kazumi was moved back to that row, she's been kind of AWOL since November. Another member who has gone missing is Hinako who is one of my big, big faves. She did announce four months ago she was taking another leave of absence due to her health but there's been no news of her since a blog entry on January 1st. Her Nogi career has sadly hit the skids the past year, she was scheduled to have a photobook last year which never happened.
On to the spreads and while not many of them they're quite superb. First off are two sets from the February edition of UTB, Yumi's is small as she only had three pages. But Ayane made up for that as her set totaled eight pages and sadly like so many of them she's probably going to remain an Undergirl member for life.
Group spread here which is from a special Spring edition of Nikkei Entertainment.
Another spread from UTB and this is from their March issue which features Asuka.
How many bites will it take her to polish off the new Nogi Mega Whopper? Asuka's best spread to date was in volume #2088 of Anan which came out in January. Posted those pics but there are some new outtake ones from the photo shoot and these are easily her most seductive pics to date. Her PB was okay though nothing spectacular, she's certainly grown up quite nicely and wouldn't mind seeing her have another book with more pics like these.
