Rurika's first second photobook is coming out on 3/31!!! That's good! But it costs money. That's bad! But it comes with a dvd! That's good. The dvd is likely your typical 15-20 minute "making of", as opposed to a full length release like "Four Seasons". That's... still good. You can preorder at amazon.jp, hmv, or cdjapan. That's just ok!

There is going to be a release event on 4/4... for those living in Japan or the super-hard core Rurikaholics

Kind of confused why SquareEnix is publishing, I didn't realize they had branched off into book publishing. Or maybe there is going to be a Rurika video game :).

Speaking of which, she reminds me of a Final Fantasy character in that picture. Not sure which one, though.

Oops, meant to edit out "first photobook".  Not sure why I wrote that. Although I thought her first pb was a "mook", like more a magazine than a hardcover photobook. By any chance did it come with a dvd or fold-out poster? I just recently converted from the AKB fandom (2.5 nightmarish years) to Idoling!!! and I want to be more selective about my spending.  I literally have a box of AKB stuff that is worthless to me now. Well, I still like Yukarin and Maimai, but Rurika is just so... awesometastic.

edit: Thanks, Masa

Welcome to the club! Idoling is an awesome fandom that won't let you down. :> Sucks that there aren't more people into it.

I don't think Idoling!!! does any money sinks (Not sure if AKB does them, but every AKB fan I know invests an ungodly amount of money into them for some reason), so I think you should be safe! I'm going on my 2nd year of being an Idoling!!! fan and the only thing I own is Daiji na Mono.  :nervous:

You should have fun here, though. None of the members get shoved to the back of anything, especially Rurika. No rapid fire graduations either! Though we might be due for one soon.  :(

the only money sinks that Idoling!!! does is through DVDs of shows, which are awesome to watch again and again though. Other than that you're safe~ No pics that will cost you 10k Yen  XD

welcome too~

Hahahaha yeah. I was contemplating buying one of the old DVD sets from first gen because downloading old episodes via Mediafire on my horrible internet is excrutiating, but then I saw the price.  :(

It's really not that bad, though, I guess. You're getting 100 30-minute episodes along with all of the extra bonus footage and on-demand scenes and whatnot. On 6 discs. Which is... a lot different from paying half the price of said DVD set for a single picture. Do people really do that?

None of the members get shoved to the back of anything,

Yeah, I love that about Idoling and it's one of the first things I noticed about the group. Everyone gets screen-time and you don't have to wonder if your favorite member is going to be in the next single.  Even on their CD covers, the layout makes it seem like whoever was in charge was trying to be fair. For instance the back cover of S.O.W. For the dvd version, the girls are lined up on a wall and Erika is closest, followed by Rurika, Yui, etc. Way at the end of the row is teh Tonook. As a former AKB fan who has been brainwashed to correlate position on a CD cover with the member's status, I thought it was sad that Erica had somehow become the reject of the group. A few days later I came across a picture of the back cover of the standard edition, and the opposite angle is used, in other words Toonoka and the other girls you could barely see are now at the forefront. How nice of Mr. CD-back-cover-photo-taking-guy!
