'Mini' post but the last one was done only twelve days ago so of course that means there wouldn't be many new pics. But have said many times would try to make posts smaller in order to have more of them, instead of having fifty or more new pics for a post thought what's wrong with having them half that size? There's nothing wrong with that and bet most viewers feel the same way as if I did wait until there were fifty new pics there wouldn't have been a post until mid June or later.
Nanase is still busy but as I've mentioned there's no new things from Nogi such as cards, mag spreads and such to post about but she has had four of them in less than three months. Think June 20th is the date a DVD of her final Nogi performance will be coming out, hopefully there will be an event and some mag spreads for the occasion. However we may need to go out and buy her a new wardrobe first, for some reason my closet is jam packed with her attire, heh heh heh heh heh....
What's that saying about an ace up the sleeve! Thought there were only about 25 or so new pics but actually there's more than that but no events lately for Nanase outside of the 'Girls Awards' show that took place on May 18th, already did a post for it. But as all huge fans know birthday #25 took place six days ago and she had many friends besides Nao(?) to celebrate with.
That middle pic is with Nanase's old Nogi buddies as she was a guest on 'Showroom' two weeks ago, if there's no other new video will post it at the bottom.
Non-no published Nanase's third photobook which came out a year ago, wonder if that'll be her final one and tens of thousands of fans are hoping it won't be. She's still an exclusive model for them, here are some new pics from their site and how many thousands of NN pics have I posted.
Have one small mag spread from BLT to post but first these are four pics from their site, they're from a mini interview for the new DVD and other current activities.
Will end off with the small yet superb spread which is from the July issue of BLT. 'Showroom' videos usually get deleted for some reason after a few weeks so won't post Nanase's appearance quite yet but do have a terrific new promo video at the bottom from Non-no.

Been about a week since the last post which has only happened once before when my laptop went on the fritz. It is true that I've been working on my new blog but had there been anything for Nogi or other Idols/gravure models would have definitely done some posts for them. But these past few weeks has honestly been the slowest stretch I've ever seen for Idols and don't have an explanation on why that's happened especially considering there's three photobooks coming out in June.
But there have been many recent Nogi things and will have some news on their new single further on down. The following post is also a Nogi one with a huge spread and some event pics, did that an hour ago so this is actually the second post today for my triumphant return. Speaking of photobooks Yuuri's first will be coming out at the end of June but she's kind of graduated from Nogi. Say 'kind of' as she's still doing some activities such as being on some radio shows which are probably to promote the PB, hope there will be an event for it too. There's a Twitter site set up for the book and here's some advance pics for it with the top one being the cover.
On May 18th eight members were a the 'Girls Awards' Spring show and have more of the pics in the next post. For this one we have the pair of Mai who is my #1B member at the moment, she just looks so beyond perfect to me lately. Also there was Nogi captain Reika who turned 25 two weeks ago, both of them took a stroll on the 'GRL' stage.
As most know "Sing Out" is the title of Nogi's 23rd single that was released on the 29th which was yesterday. First day sales were of course impressive as the total sold was 822,000 copies, day two's tally was 97,8000. So the two day total is close to 920,000 copies sold which isn't a group record but it'll surpass a million rather easily. My complaint is that the Senbatsu lineup at 22(?) members is just way too huge and these are the covers for the single.
Even more "Sing Out" pics as these are insert ones from the single.
Almost forgot this, in case you need a desktop calendar for June may I suggest....
Quite a few pics in this post but could have had it bigger, may as well save a few so there's not a long gap in posts again. On to the spreads and have been noticing the ones from the past few months haven't been featuring as many of the more popular members outside of Asuka who is the center for the new single. But all of the spreads are superb such as this first one which features Kana, it's from the July edition of UTB and she has one of Nogi's most underrated figures.
Also in the issue is Ayane who for the second time in three singles is a Senbatsu member.
Will have this as the final spread for today which is from volume #43 of BLT Graph. Ranze is the featured member and though still an Undergirl has had 3-4 solo spreads the past few months.
