Leo Ieiri 4th single “Message” has cool covers. It’s the second to best cover after her debut single. Together with CDs I have received a nice bonus clear case with a cool Ieiri photo. I wish there is a poster with the same photo. Very nice.

“Gingham Check” is the 27th AKB48 single featuring 2012 Senbatsu with Yuko Oshima as center. It’s strange to see only two types of single when all recent singles are released with 3 regular and 3 limited types. This is the last AKB48 single with Atsuko Maeda and the last single released only in two types. It is the last single of the first part of AKB48.
Fortunately all copies of Gingham Check comes with random photo and it is never too late to buy it. Besides all songs are great, package is neat and Atsuko Maeda graduation song Yume no Kawa is very beautiful.

This is the second Nana Mizuki live performance with complete orchestra – “Nana Mizuki Live Grace -opus II” and it comes with additional disk with beautiful performance from “Nana Mizuki Live Union 2012”. I find both performances great and worth to have on Blu-ray. Of course I would gladly to have thick photobook as in AKB48 live performance releases. Mizuki has so many nice costumes, but in photobook there is only only photo with each of them. It’s not enough. Also with first press edition comes a poster, with the same picture as on cover.
“Sayonara Crawl” is the latest election single from AKB48. It is their 31st single. Each regular single contains vote ticket, random photo and mini photobook by Mika Ninagawa. In my opinion it is the most beautiful AKB48 single that I saw. Great covers, cool photos and colorful mini photobooks.
