The cover has been out for a while now, and it screams one word – simplicity. It seems that the covers for recent releases from Hello! Project have been extremely simple (Shouganai Yume Oibito for example), I wouldn’t be surprised if the cover of Seishun Bus Guide has the girls aligned in a yearbook style photo. This cover is good, simple but good, although I would have liked some more complexity in the background instead of a blackout scene. Yajima looks great as always, the serious face she has could mean that now that she is 17 she will try and be more mature, although it could also mean that she is bored over the idea of the cover.
The PB comes out on April 29 with the DVD (the one with the yearbook cover), so if you’re a Maimi fan be sure to have it reserved. She is one of the popular members of Hello! Project, which means that she will sell really well during her first week. Let’s hope that the PB is more interesting than the cover (which will most likely be true), good luck on your first week sales Yajima.
