(Didn't see a post for this so decided to make one ^U^) Sayumi Michishige made a blog post last night announcing a ninth photobook~! But here is a translation of the post, by Madeline Gardner on Hello!Fandom:
Will have a solo photobook come out!
Waa. The first solo book I've had in about a year! Andand, this will be my ninth solo PB. (I think this is what this means) My last photobook was called "Sayuminlandoll" And I used that title as the title on the header of this Ameblo blog.
Sayuminlandoll was perflectly cute with lots of make-up, and I got dressed as a doll and a kitty and other things, but...
I'm interested to see whether they'll be making songs for anime openings and extending their cosplaying to music videos... I'm also quite surprised they're allowed to keep their blogs/websites that they have.
Yoshizawa Hitomi and Ishikawa Rika to form a new group, ABCHO (Coming from the words 'Abstract Chop) pronounced Abu-Cho, to create the theme for the anime 'Sengoku Collection'. Their first single will be titled 'Me wo Tojite Gyusshiyo', which will be released on the 23rd of May, with 2 versions, Regular and Limited. - I'm looking forwards to hearing what they sound like without the 'punky' image of Hangry&Angry! I can't wait for more information~
(Didn't see a thread for this, and I got excited and decided to create one, since I just got my 100th post... :'3 Sorry if there's already a thread!)
