Mitsui Aika’s photobook cover released

The cover for Mitsui Aika’s first photobook, simply titled Aika, has been released. And I gotta say I am pretty happy about how the cover looks. Of course like most photobooks do, it features Aika in a bikini. And I really love the bikini they picked. It’s pretty simple and Aika still looks alluring without showing too much skin or being over exposed. And believe me with her boobs she could. XD

I also hadn’t noticed but it seems like Mittsi also lightened her hair to an auburn shade and has added bangs. (Well she’s had bangs for a while now, but they were more side swept and these are straight.) Which really suits her, she looks incredible. And the bangs give a nice overall balance to the shape of her face.

Aika was also in UTB magazine, and those pictures are most likely previewing her photobook. But since I’m not 100% about that I’m not going to post them here.

Mistui Aika to release first photobook!

Stop the presses! Hold the phone! Better yet, somebody pinch me! The most exciting news to come out of H!P nearly all year has been announced. Better than S/mileage’s major debut, better than Arihara Kanna’s first photobook(I don’t care if she’s not H!P anymore.), better than the 9th generation Morning Musume auditions. 8th generation Morning Musume member Mitsui Aika is getting her first photobook. It is simply entitled Aika and will be released on January 26. And I honestly can’t think of a better way to ring in the new year.

I cannot believe that my favorite Morning Musume and Hello!Project member Mittsi is finally getting a photobook. She has only said about 800 times how much she’s wanted one.

I actually think she’s been saying she’s wanted once since 2008. Well, as they say good things come to those that wait.

I am completely freaking out. I actually kinda lost all hope of her ever getting one. But obviously she would eventually get one, one day. Especially since every other member without a photobook either has released or is releasing one. And I honestly couldn’t be happier about the whole situation. And Aika is releasing this photobook at the perfect time.

Because Aika has been looking so fresh and mature lately. And of course she always looks lovely and adorable.

Also Mitsui Aika in a bikini?

Yes please!

Up Front’s official youtube channel has uploaded a short behind the scenes clip/making of the DVD that she is also releasing. And so far it’s looking pretty cute. But did anyone else notice she’s wearing the exact same yellow bikini that Koharu has worn before?
