Not a special post today but it is Nanase's 24th birthday! Let's hope we can celebrate many more with her as a Nogi member and have a feeling she'll be with the group for a few more years. Haven't heard any rumors of her leaving and think it'd be a mistake if she did any time soon as her popularity is at an all time time high.
This post puts Nanase in first place for most posts and think she'll end up setting a record which will never be topped. Think she's also moved into the top spot for my top twenty faves for 2018, one advantage of being an Idol is that you're almost always in the spotlight and these days there's no busier Idol than Nanase.
Her third photobook was released on May 9th, first week sales were a tad over 95,000 copies sold. In it's second week the book was once again #1 on the Oricon charts selling 19,358 copies and thought the total would have been higher. Nanase should top the sales of her second PB which has sold around 170 K and it seems many of her best buddies approve of the book....
On to some newer things and along with Asuka Nanase is now an exclusive model for the GRL clothing line, at the top of the post is a new CM for the company. Two posts ago had many pics for the GRL Spring/Summer collection and here are even more new ones.
Been slipping on Nogi cards this year but have plenty of new ones with the top few being for the "Synchronicity" single which has sold 1,257,000 copies to date.
Can never have a Nanase post without a huge amount of Non-no pics and these are newish ones from the magazine's Instagram site.
Smaller Nanase Noin-no spread than usual for their July issue.
That's it for current Nanase happenings so will end off with a few 'greatest pics', most have been posted before but who can ever get tired of viewing Nanase pics over and over and.... After them check out a superb BLT video from four months ago that had never been posted before.
