Discussion in 'SKE48 Graduated Members' started by sada, Dec 14, 2010.
The book has what everyone loves: Swimsuits She will also do two release events in Tokyo and Nagoya.
Great news, do you know if CDJapan or YesAsia will be selling it?
My guess is that CDJapan will have it available, the site is currently listing Aya's 2018 calendar which will be available on 11/4: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/2018CL-253?s_ssid=e370fc59d3459e6549
I'll definitely be buying her PB, she's my favourite graduated SKE48 member. I had a 2-shot with her in Yokohama in the spring of last year before she left the group, she's as pretty in real life as she is in photos and videos!
EDIT: PB now available at CDJapan: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOBK-2156721
I got Aya's photobook in the post from amazon.co.jp this week (along with her issue of Big Comic Spirit) and I have to say I'm very pleased with it. It's not an "ero" book like Mariya Nagao's, there's no asscrack or hand-bra but instead it's a very classy book. Don't worry, there is plenty of bikini shots and Aya looks very hot but it's in a pure and classy way imo. I've always thought that Aya was very much in the "classic idol" mould and the book seems to express her personality in that way, it's sexy and fun but not dirty.
As an aside, we all know that Aya's eyes are her "charm point" (and they are) but the photos in this book illustrate just how stunning her cheekbones are, her face is shaped so well by them. As an Aya fan, or even just one who appreciates beautiful women, I'd recommend the book highly.
Saw this pic making the rounds.
The Guy in the pic is Furukawa Yuki (Actor). Was in Itazura na Kiss: Love in Tokyo and it's Sequel.
Wow, he's seriously good-looking, I'm happy for them whether they're friends or dating.
(Looking at those thirty-ers bickering each other)
(Ended up dragged (thanks, MC!)and ultimately has to reveal the ancient weapon as last resort)
Ayachan was a Police Chief for the day in Tokyo's Setagaya Ward on Friday (11/23):

Nikenme Dou Suru? ~Tsumami no Hanashi~ (Shibata Aya) (2018-12-08)
Buzzfeed Japan recently carried a lengthy interview with Ayachan:
From what I can gather via Google Translate, she talks about her childhood (including being bullied at school), her time with SKE48 (including being in the senbatsu for KnP) and her current work with AbemaTV.
She is featured in a two part article where she interviews the authors of "The Courage to Be Disliked: The Japanese Phenomenon That Shows You How to Change Your Life and Achieve Real Happiness"
"“Courage to be hated” read by a wide range of generations from elementary school to the 80s, but free announcer Aya Shibata also professes that she is a fan of “Courage to be hated”. So I will send you two talks with Shibata and the author. What was the reason why Shibata, who graduated from SKE48 and became a free announcer, was saved by "Courage to be hated"?
Shibata : Since graduating from SKE48 three years ago and becoming a free announcer, there has been a period when the number of people I meet every day has suddenly increased and I have become somewhat overcapacited. In the meantime, when I met Adler's idea of “separation of issues”, I felt really refreshed.
Until then, SKE48, one of many people who should have been in contact with the people involved, but once I became free, on the contrary, the opportunity to have my individual in the staff increased. I'm tired of this new interpersonal relationship because I'm not good at socializing.
“courage to be disliked” is excellent because every time I read it, I have new discoveries. I often put sticky notes on the pages I care about, and when I come to mind, I often flip through pages like a dictionary, but a sentence that I didn't think of last time resonates with my heart. You must to do something before you go on.
