Bikini themed election results mook20 October, 2010 by Chad
Here’s a quick look through the more recently released AKB48 Sousenkyo! Mizugi Surprise 2010, which translates literally as the General Election Swimsuit Surprise. The mook is meant as a results book for the past election but as both the title and cover suggest, it’s also bikini driven offering from the idol group.
Just like the AKB48 Fashion Book, I’m not too keen on the whole swimsuit thing. As appealing as bikinis are, the creator of bikinis obviously only had a minuscule percentage of women in mind. With the exception of Victoria’s Secret models, few people actually look good in one, even idols.
Some will undeniably find enjoyment in identifying those who manage to fill out their bikini. For the rest of the fans, there are still some things to find value in, such as the account of election day as well as interviews with the members and staff.Click here to search CDJapan for official AKB48 goods.
