Yu-chan will be gracing the cover of H Magazine… again. She was previously on the cover with Ninomiya for a Tekkon photoshoot… and then she was on the Futari no H cover. I have never been able to find high quality scans of that Futari no H shoot… so if anyone has, let me know.

Also, a quick reminder~ Uso. has officially been released. You can get it through HMV Japan… though I pre-ordered it, and they emailed me with a delayed message. BAW~

On the Futari no H link, they mention Travel Sand and Yoko Takahashi. They say Yoko and Yu make up a dream team. xD They do create magic together. You can still buy Travel Sand [YesAsia][HMV JP][Amazon JP], and Dandelion [YesAsia][HMV JP][Amazon JP].

I think both books are pretty big sellers… it always goes out of stock, and if I recall correctly, my Travel Sand book (or is it my Dandelion one?) is already a second print.

Sorry for the lack of comment activity yesterday, there was a weird mixed up with me, my server, and my ISP… which was fixed NOT by Telefonica, but my server providers~~~ They’re the best. You should all work with them.

Anyway, a lot of stuff… besides the World Cup,
whose Opening ceremony I missed, because I couldn’t wake up for them…

Toy Story 3 screening in the morning! So I’m making this short~

First~ as you may (or not) have noticed, I have added a Yu Aoi Event Calendar to the right, below the Ads. That’s to help us all to keep track of what’s going on and when. As you can see, Flowers opened today.

The newest issue of So-En Magazine (yes, the famous one with Yu as a boy) has recently hit the stands with Yu on the cover once again. As you can see, the cover is sporting the look for Yu’s newest Photo Exhibit and upcoming Photobook Uso. (Lie.). So she’s pushing hard to promote this.

Maybe it is because I didn’t know my sources well, but if I recall correctly when Portugirl came out, there wasn’t much promotion for it, at least not that I recall people blogging about it.

Anyway, I found this info on Japanese Streets, where they guide on how to get issues of So-En magazine, which by the way is a renowned fashion magazine that started in 1936. 1936!!! Otherwise, you can get it on Amazon Japan, or somehow get it from Bunka Publishing ~~~ and… you can pre-order Uso. over at HMV Japan.

by the way… anyone attend the event on the 29th? or anyone attending the exhibit?
would love to hear from you.

I won’t really link to the article because it mainly mentions her private life, and I know the video does mention it  a bit, but her people — because that was “her people”, right? ushered reporters away in the end.

Can I just say the exhibit looks pretty awesome? A room with big pictures of Yu Aoi… in 3D and those cute 3D glasses is a win for me.

I bothered to get some of the captions…

“蒼井優展を開くきっかけは”
The Yu Aoi Exhibit to Open

“個展を開くにあたっての感想は”
Your impressions on the opening of the exhibit

“実際に見た感想は”
The impressions on what you see (?)

“うそ をテーマにした訳は”
Conclusions of the theme of “Lies.”

“うそ をついたことは”
Ever lied? (?)

and a last caption pertaining her private life.

Anyway… I think it’s funny hearing all the giggles in the background, it makes it look like all the female reporters are totally smitten by her. Though, to be fair… I think Japan is smitten with any of their celebrities.

Uso.

I already pre-ordered the book. Alongside with a surprise for all of you Yu-Aoi-tagged element readers, but I’m gonna make you beg and grovel for the surprise… of course, I won’t be able to tell you anything until I get my order… but you can try groveling for details until then~

As I blogged 2 weeks ago, Yu-chan will be releasing a new Photobook, this time with pop-up elements, which ties into the 3D exhibit she’s doing in Shibuya, opening today in Tokyo (it’s 27th already there), and she will be at a meeting event on the 29th – if you’ve got a seat, would you report here?

All details about the book are on the link posted above.

PS: Yu Aoi has already returned to Japan – was at an event for Club Keiba, so that means she’s done shooting Vampire in Vancouver? Or will she be returning for more shooting?
