Excellent start to this month with ten posts done in 4 1/2 days, October ended on a high note too so hope this stretch with being able to post about my bigger faves can continue on for a while. However as mentioned in a post yesterday right around now is when I begin to slow down on doing posts for those who will make the year's faves list. The countdown will begin in three weeks and try to make those posts large with many new photos so I end up holding on to things for a while. But still will have many things coming up as not everyone will be making the list, just began writing up a drama recap which you'll be seeing soon plus there should be both a Hina and Keya group post this week.
Iori's first ever solo post wasn't done until two months ago but this is quickly her seventh one! Will admit I have become so smitten with her and she could be my top newbie of the year! Even though Iori did get a late start with the posts she will easily make this year's faves list but for now have no clue what position she'll end up at. Her next post will be for whatever position she ends up in and also it'll be celebrating her birthday as on November 26th she'll be hitting the age of 26. Iori's first six posts all featured a digital photobook, am all caught up with them but know she has at least one more coming out soon. In some of those posts did have a magazine spread that promoted the book, for today the spreads are just regular ones from the past few months and trust me when I say all are breathtaking!
But do have a few other things for Iori, plus am hoping to hold back some mag spreads for her next post. As most know Iori was with Nogi and graduated in July 2018, the first second generation member to do so though has kept in touch with her mates. So first off are these older Nogi cards from May 2018, two months before she departed.
That bottom pic above isn't a card but the cover to her 2024 calendar. It will be released this month and there will be an event for it so those pics will be in her next post. Up next are these recent pics from her IG page but not nearly as many as usual though those first few are so sweltering.
After leaving Nogi Iori did a lot of modeling work and did co-host a variety show. She also has done some acting and has appeared in four stage plays with her most recent one ending on October 31st. The title of that play was "Kemono Friends" and she played the character of the big eared Fox. To promote the play she did an interview with TheTV.jp site that came out on October 13th and she also discussed her post Nogi career, here's the link to it: TheTV.jp interview
In those digital book posts had five magazine spreads but won't be having any of those today. That's because there's still seven more Iori spreads that hadn't been posted and perhaps I will do one more post for her before the countdown to this year's faves list begins. So will have five of those spreads for today which means will hold on to a pair of them. Know she has at least one more upcoming spread which she'll be the cover girl for, first up is this set from the August 15th issue of SPA!.
Will keep these in order by when they were released, up next is this set from the September 5th issue of Flash and while she did have a book for them this spread wasn't promoting it.
Third up for Iori is this sparkling set from the September 7th edition of Young Jump, every spread is so dazzling so how can you pick out the best one?
That above spread did feature outtake pics from a book but it was her second spread to promote it and had only posted the other one. Fourth up is this set from the October 4th issue of Young Ganagan, Iori just looks so amazing in every pic and still need to find out why she decided to become a gravure model after never doing those kinds of photo shoots before until this May.
Last up is this spread from the October 13th issue of Young Animal, just couldn't recall if it has been posted before so thought better safe than sorry. Iori has her own YT Vlog and unlike most others posts many videos of her photo shoots. Her latest one came out ten days ago which was for an older Young Champion digital book and that video is after the pics.
