For the latest volume of MEKURU Magazine [Facebook][Official Website], they are holding a special on Yu Aoi who will be turning 30! I’m not sure what’s gonna be in there (Japanese being rusty and all), but there’s gonna be an interview and (maybe?) photos by Kawashima Kotori (å·å³¶å°é³¥) [Portfolio], who apparently is an Ihei Kimura (æœ¨æ‘ä¼Šå…µ) awarded photographer for his book Star (æ˜Žæ˜Ÿ) [Amazon JP].
It’s titled Aoi Yu,Â Saisho de Saigo ni Ren’ai o Kataru (è’¼äº•å„ªã€æœ€åˆã§æœ€å¾Œã«æ‹æ„›ã‚’èªžã‚‹) — you’ll have to forgive my des and nis translations.
They’re totally selling it like a direct sequel to Travel Sand. xD
There will also be a poem by Shuntaro Kanikawa (è°·å·ä¿Šå¤ªéƒŽ)Â titled Aoi Yu (ã‚ãŠã„ã‚†ã†). Among other stuff I can’t make out, it’ll include 128 pages and will be listed at Y907 Yen. It’s available on Amazon JP and HMV JP.
