Nugiyagare is the singer’s first solo photo book and it is a great one!
A photo of actress and singer Yuko Oshima from her new photo book Nugiyagare!
The career of Yuko Oshima continues to blossom and reach new heights! The former AKB48 idol held a release event for her new photo book called Nugiyagare. (Note: I wrote the title of the photo book without the exclamation mark to make it easier for my readers.) This is the first photo book released by Oshima since leaving AKB48. The photos were shot on the island of Ibiza in Spain by Mika Ninagawa. Oshima gave the photo book a 100 % rating and reflected on the finished product. She said that the photo shoot took place at a nude beach and everyone around her had their tops off and she was inspired by this. Nugiyagare takes Oshima’s sexiness to a new level as she is really showing her body for this one! I have seen some of the photos and they are really something amazing! Oshima, now 28, said that she will not show her body again.
What was the main reason behind the making of Nugiyagare?
The reason for her showing her body for this photo book was because it was all by chance. When reporters at the event said that she may have to “take it off” for her acting work. Oshima said that she would not be opposed to showing her body. Oshima further revealed that she did this photo shoot and showed her body to prove that she has matured after leaving AKB48.
Whatever her motivations were for doing this photo book, it shows a side to the singer and actress that we have not seen. I also think that she really is beautiful for sure! Nugiyagare beats Atsuko Maeda’s 2010 photo book Acchan in Hawaii. It has some pretty provocative images but it shows that Yuko can certainly compete with the other AKB48 girls. I still like Yui Yokoyama the most in terms of physical beauty but Yuko Oshima deserves consideration as well. Oshima who will be 26 on October 17 recently announced that she will make her stage acting debut. Oshima is now 26 and we are in April 2015 as I make this update. Yuko Oshima was a member of AKB48 since almost the beginning of the group’s career. She was a member for some famous singles such as Manatsu no Sounds Good! Yuko was also a member and the center for the single Mae shika Mukanee which turned out to be the last single she would take part in as a member of AKB48. Yuko Oshima was a member for an even longer time than Mariko Shinoda which is impressive. Oshima has established herself as a great pop music singer, won an Academy Award, and now she is on top of the photo book world! Nugiyagare! is one of the best photo books around but Ayumi Ishida of Morning Musume has three of her own that are impressive as well!
Great job Yuko!! I may write a full biography about Oshima so stay tuned!
Note: for those of you that may be wondering as of this present time (August 2016) I have written a biography of AKB48 idol Yuko Oshima.
