    @Reveen Great review, really appealing. CDJapan has already shipped yesterday everything it had with Rei and some more "Namba-infected" issues, so I might be only growing more impatient over the remaining almost two weeks (most likely I will receive the package after trip). I was not so sure what to expect from Girls-pedia (my guess is that it's similar to girls!, I have one older issue with Milky).
    UTB+ 2017-09 (Rei, Akari, Miru)
    GIRLS-PEDIA 2017 Summer (Rei, Fuuko)
    BOMB Love Special 2017 (Rei and all these Nambas)
    BUBKA 2017-02 (Aayan)
    ENTAME 2017-08 (Yuki, Miru, Yunana)
    FLASH Gravure Special 2017 Early Summer (Nambas, though I don't expect much, just that Rei is on cover...)
    ARMS Magazine has been sold out, thankfully, I'm not that really into ordering such uncute stuff, LOL.

    It should be noted that Rei and Suzu have a joint photoshot in UTB+ 2017-09, as cover says. No more details known to me.

    @goratnik Thanks. I think rather than just saying member x is in such and such a mag it's good to say if it's worth buying and why. Girls-pedia is not exactly great at advertising their stuff so giving a review of it is useful in case someone is tempted to buy it but is put off because they don't know what's in it. Also gravure isn't really talked about much on this forum because a lot of people have this"ew gravure", "ew bikinis" attitude and they look down on it....but if you look at the members social media, especially those members on the fringes of senbatsu or new members, then to many of them appearing in a gravure mag is a BIG deal.

    The only issue of Arms I have is Haruppi's one from a few years ago but 1200yen for 4 pages of gravure surrounded by hundreds of pages of plastic guns is bit much really:lol:

    I'll be buying that issue of UTB, generally I find it has some of the best photography of all the gravure mags, second only to BLT Graph perhaps.

    As for the Flash special...you're right not to expect much, there's a few small pictures of Rei but nothing to write home about. I'm rarely impressed by Flash though, most of it's content has pretty mediocre concepts and photography.

    @Reveen There is one major problem, when writing about magazines: most commonly I have no idea, what is going to be inside. And before they will get to me, it will take a long time... So it's better to write immediately and add details, when they will be available (I still have the delivery from May queued... Not that impressive apart from already known set with both sisters though).

    Fresh announcement, "stolen" from another thread: our SEXY girl is goign to have a solo session in BUBKA 2017-10. Yes, cover clearly says "SEXY". Oh sweet sixteens.

    Last week has brought a quite unusual and strong combination: my top2 (kami + main group) chatting on the radio - considerably special event. If only I knew about what...

    At this rate I'm going to run out of funds on a KKS (!)... Second issue announced mere two weeks after I placed last order, sigh.

    Rei has been paired with Shibuya Nagisa in ENTAME 2017-10:

    I have got the package mentioned two weeks ago yesterday morning, still speechless - that's going to be a longer post anyway, I think.

    I've had no idea, that a KKS could be really such a risk for my pocket... Two new releases in the time between placing order and receiving it? That's such a fast pace! (Admittedly, that was a slow delivery: 19 days instead of 7-8 that were usual few years ago. Looks like problems with local sorting/distribution centre...)

    I've got BUBKA and ENTAME though, Rei is such a cookie. Solo photoset in BUBKA is so interesting though: it has title... "the Fatal Sister". For real. Not that her photosets might not cause fatalities among viewers. There are two pages of interview attached, I see that at least part of it is about sisters.
    ENTAME might be not straying away from the "weird" category though, as duet with Nagisa is called... "Like a Sister". Does anyone else see a theme here, or am I just paranoid?

    She is no longer a KKS. Promoted to Team BII. Source

    And the Girls-Pedia shoot included Yamada Suzu, another NMB sister. I'd say they're going to run with this until Rei is established in her own right.

    I got the Bubka and Entame issues but I didn't get the UTB one (yet). Rei would be literally the only girl I'd be interested in that particular issue of UTB (it's full of Morning Musume for some reason) and paying 1200 yen for 6 pages is a bit much...

    So she was on UTB+ 2017-09 and 2017-11? That's so frequent.
    Hey, Rei is worth it! I don't know when I will order this batch, as I want to wait for any possible other appearances (two last orders were immediately followed by new announcements... maybe I'm giving Rei jobs and should order more?). I'm not worried about other content; if I were to buy something without Rei I would check all names in the issue if there's enough for me... With Akari I'm more relaxed, as I guess that getting everything with a senbatsu members is not for my pocket anyway, but so far Rei is surprisingly not that far behind with appearances in magazines over last half a year, like how is that even possible.

    I've sorted out mess on Twitter a bit and now I have a special list for top graders - basically girls in signature that are on Twitter. Rei is doing great in this tank of sharks.

    Edit: links updated - so many dead OMG

    Looks like Rei took what was Seira's tbh; middle sister looks like none of the other.

    @Reveen are you still not convinced?

    given that I probably won't be buying Bomb next month, I might be able to fit Rei in :lol:

    Know what bothers me about Ree?

    The first thing i gotta know of her was her bikini body.

    I mean thats great and everything, and she obviously is predestined for gravure jobs, but before i ve seen her in anything idol-related (actually thats not true, i saw that clip in which she and Kei were singing together at home) i already knew everything about her body.
    Like she is a (almost junior) gradol who also happened to be a member of an idol group.

    No offense.

    Kawaiian TV ran a documentary series covering the 5th gen just last year, as soon as they passed the auditions and before they began any idol activities at all. 19 episodes in total. This of course also included lots of Reicchi.
    Not to mention all the appearances on YNN inside their location-based segments, which followed up soon afterward. Plus she's also a hina-dan regular on Manabukun right now, isn't it?
    That seems more than enough to know more about her than "just her body", I'm sorry to say that the statement is untrue.

    Which basically means she is doing all the standard stuff any/most nmb member is doing. But among all the sixth gens (and not only them) she has outdone all other members combined in terms of gravure appearances. So, to me, rather than by performance/variety-related activities she stands out for her gravure jobs.
    The first time she appeared in a swimsuit dates back from April 2017, together with Keicchi: https://ameblo.jp/dora-dora2011/entry-12263776508.html. At least as far as i know. Thats about 10 months after her debut, even before she turned 16.
    You see, i prefer it if members are getting first popular, and then appear in gravure mags because of the higher demand they have generated. The other way round, its maybe shortcutting a little bit :)
    Again, this is not dead-serious criticism, but an observation i made. Could also be that she has been put into that drawer because of her sister.

    I guess the demand was high because of Keicchi xD
    I still can see your point. Did you watch the kenkyuusei stages? She got me there (though the whole 5th gen did) and she was a very nice center for the kenkyuusei version of BokuIgai. :)
    I also heard somewhere that she does quite well in social media, but I don't know if that's actually true

    I think there's a few factors at play when it comes to Rei

    1: The successor factor. It's a well worn Japanese trope, the younger sister/brother following in the footsteps older brother/sister, the story writes itself.

    2. The "Yunana" factor. Ok this might sound a bit wacky but go with me for a moment here. For a while non-bikini grav was spreading, the 46-groups of course (although lately thats changing lol), then Team 8 with it's blanket ban on bikini grav, then Sayaka and Sakura started doing conservative grav. Then SKE decided to give Yunana a mega push but unexpectedly put her in every grav possible and it was a success, NMB sees this...takes a look at it's younger members for an equivalent and spots Rei.

    3. A gap in the market. In the last 9 months or so NMB has lost some of it's main grav members, Keicchi, Riripon and Shu graduated (and Fuu gone soon) plus Sayaka quit doing bikini grav so there's a space for someone to replace them and nature abhors a vacuum.
