While there was some sad news for fans this year, such as Nanami Hashimoto graduating from the group, popular Japanese idol group Nogizaka46 who released their debut CD in 2012 celebrate their 5th anniversary in February this year.
Coinciding with this anniversary, 5 popular members Misa Eito, Mai Shiraishi, Kazumi Takayama, Miona Hori, and Yumi Wakatsuki were chosen to feature on the cover of famous Japanese TV guide ‘Shunkan The Television’.
The cover photo and content of the 5 members mentioned above varies depending on whether you buy your ‘Shunkan The Television’ in Tokyo or Kansai areas.
In particular, as this month’s publication commemorates Nogizaka46’s 5th anniversary, this TV guide is running a Nogizaka46 special feature for three concurrent weeks. This week is the last in this three part special feature.
This week’s content, according to a press release, reveals the 5 girls in two outfits, with copies sold in eastern Japan featuring a sweet at home outfit look, and the western Japan edition featuring dresses that emphasise their beautiful legs. The gravure themed content inside the magazine is a CD debut 5th anniversary party theme, that features scenes such as the girls dressed up giving a toast, taking photos of one another, and more. It also includes selfies of the girls in their room wear outfits.
As an extra, readers also get a reversible poster of the girls and a signed polaroid photo of the girls in both outfits. This magazine is a must-have for fans.
