There's been so many Yua happenings the last few days will have another post for her in the next day or so. Yua is finally becoming a bit popular around here as her last post has remained on the most viewed posts list for the last month. For some reason she's never made my end of year lists but know that'll change for 2018, can see Yua being in the top ten or perhaps even in the top five.
Pics above are from Yua's second photobook "Atlas" which was released on March 24th. In it's first week out it was ninth on the Oricon charts selling 2,100 copies but deserved to be much higher than that position. At the top is a newish CM for Rohto and here's some promo pics from their site, there's quite a few CM's for them on YT.
Yua will have the lead role in two(!) dramas starting in April. The first one begins in two days and is titled "Angels in White". There was an event for it today but will have the pics from it along with more info in her next post.
June will mark Yua's third anniversary as an exclusive Non-no model. She's always appeared in every mag but the past few moths her spreads have become much bigger plus Yua has been their cover girl a few times such as for their new May edition.
Yua is also a staple at the huge fashion shows, of course she was on hand March 31st for the 'Tokyo Girls Collection' Spring/Summer show. Yua was one of the bright spots at the show and it's a shame she only took one stroll on the catwalk. These shows have become extremely popular, this was their 26th S/S show and it was held at the Yokohama Arena before 32,000 fans.
On April 4th Yua was at a press conference for a special 'Dream Jumbo Lottery' that's run by the Japanese government. The proceeds will be for the national Rugby team as the 2019 World Cup for that sport will be held in Japan. The total prizes amount to one billion yen with the top prize winning you 300 million yen, I personally may rather have Yua as my prize! Tickets for it went on sale April 4th and you can purchase them up until the 27th. There's a new CM for the lottery after the event pics and it also includes a long behind the scenes segment.
