Previews from Michishige Sayumi’s 8th PB titled Sayuminglandoll have been released.
As most of you might remember the cover for the PB was a bit unusual since almost all releases have featured a cute close-up of the member in a bikini or in a nature setting smiling at the camera, but for this release we instead saw Sayu in an unusual outfit in a colorful and playful setting.
I was surprised when I saw the cover since it looked a bit too colorful and unusual for a PB setting, and I wasn’t expecting to see that much of a mature Sayu in this release, but from the previews below you can tell that I was very wrong. I’m not sure if the photographer for Nakky’s PB worked on this PB as well but there are a few similarities, mainly due to the emphasis on color and contrasting themes with impressive outfits that do an amazing job of catching the viewers eye.
For example the two images above, one showing Sayu in a colorful ribbon bikini while sitting on a giant pink cube with many colorful objects on the floor while the other image shows Sayu in a white and black cute goth look with a whip. The first image was unexpected since I couldn’t image Sayu wearing what appears to be a light brown or orange wig, much less in such a colorful setting, but I have to admit that it caught my attention since the pose and the outfit really showed off a sexy theme.
The black and white outfit on the right are impressive as well since it shows off a more mature and dark style with many spiked accessories as well as a whip, which seems to show off her “poison-tongue” character. The outfit is equally sexy since the short skirt is short enough to show off a dark bottom which contrasts with the white color of the outfit really well
The other previews show Sayu in a striped bikini with a blue headband in a balloon filled room as well as an “Alice in Wonderland” outfit with her holding two cards.
The picture on the left was the one that really showed off a similar style to Nakky’s PB since the same sexy pose appeared in her release as well. The balloons seem to be another big indicator that they might have the same photographer but even though it might be similar I really liked how the picture came out since the pose as well as the outfit and the setting really combined to make an amazing picture.
The preview on the right matches the colorful style of the release as well since it shows off Sayu dressed up as Alice, and while the same sexy style as the other photos isn’t in this picture there is a chance that the other pictures from the set do have them. Apart from that I was impressed with it since Sayu’s expression and the outfit and cards really complete the Alice look.
So far we have four very colorful and impressive previews for Sayu’s PB, and it’s safe to say that this release will be like no other since the themes and poses for this release are unique. I was disappointed at first that they took a more playful and modern style for this PB since it does look very different from other PBs she has released (the usual bikini and casual outfits) but after seeing the previews I am really looking forward to this release since it looks like yet another perfect release from Sayu, but with a unique and playful look that shows off her two characters: overly cute and narcissist as well as poison-tongued and dark.
Hopefully everyone who can will reserve a copy of this release since it seems like this will be among her best PBs, and while we haven’t seen the full PB I really hope we can see the same style as this release with other members.
The release date is set for 10/27.
EDIT: Higher quality previews have been released so I updated the images above, but here are a few more that were released just now.
