Nogizaka46: Pics from the 'Girls Awards 2015 Spring/Summer Fashion Show'

 Been trying to catch up on my dramas and movies lately which is why there hasn't been as many posts the last few days and perhaps for a few more days, before I knew it that 'need to watch' list grew so big had to devote some time to viewing but there will be quite a few posts on those watches coming up soon.
 Been a bit quiet with the group lately, still waiting for the fourth season of NOGIBINGO! to be subbed along with their new show 'Under Construction', no word on when or if they'll be subbed. The "Inochi wa Utsukushii" single sales have been better the last two weeks as it's now up to a total of 574,000 copies sold, another 40,000 and they'll have their best selling single.
 On April 29th the group appeared at the 'Girls Awards' show for I think the third year in a row, will try to hunt down videos from it but the group hardly has any of them for their appearances. While the whole group was there only five members took part in the fashion show, all the members have some sort of an affiliation with a magazine which is why they were models. The five who were in the show were Mai, Nanami(wow did she look fabulous!), Asuka, Sayuri and Nanase, which is the order of the pics.

Rena Matsui: Sunday Shonen "Gravure Best Selection" mag scans

 It just occurred to me before I started writing this post that Rena may have set a record in March for singing on three #1 singles with three different groups! First there was AKB's "Green Flash", then Nogi's "Inochi wa Utsukushii" and finally her main group SKE topped the charts with "Boku wa Shitteiru", if it's been done before then it's happened very rarely, can anyone else recall if it's ever happened? No more singles with Nogi though as she 'graduated' from them on April 12th but she's sure to have another #1 with AKB's 40th single which is coming out on May 20th.
 Just this one set of Rena pics but there are 20 of them and she does look quite terrific, noticed she's toned down her mag spreads recently being much more conservative and this set of pics is from a special Sunday Shonen mag called "Gravure Best Selection".
