I love seeing all the “Reborn Morning Musume” hype machine offerings. I’m also sure that the magazine editors just looking at the latest Morning Musume press releases. That’s the way it works in Japan, right?
A little bit has been made about Sato Masaki in that last picture. Namely, does she know she’s giving a peek at her cheeks? I dunno … she’s 13? Eripon seems to be … developing. Haruka looks especially confident; she looks smug. Sayu is doing her best to appeal to the viewer … and Reina seems to be phoning it in. Ayumi looks like she’s cheating and jumping a little for additional height. Which brings to mind this question: are the girls lined up in height order?
