The new photobook which features AKB48 members with their dogs will go on sale 30 June 2014.
The photobook uses Shimazaki Haruka(Paruru) and her dog as the front cover, and also showcases Paruru’s cosplay of a dog. The rest of the photobook features the rest of the “Labrador Retriever” senbatsu members playing around naturally with dogs. A special corner is also dedicated to next generation aces Kojima Mako, Owada Nana and Nishino Miki, where they talk about dogs in a pajama party setting.
While the No.1 winner of this year’s general elections Watanabe Mayu was scheduled to appear on the frontpage, the cameramen were only able to capture her “stiff smiles” due to Mayuyu’s phobia of dogs. Therefore, they decided to use Paruru’s image instead, since she was able to offer her dog a “kami tai”(god treatment) smile.
This is the cutest photo i’ve seen! And poor Mayuyu, i have a phobia of dogs too so i understand..
