Fan me off Jurina Matsui!

It still feels like July where I live, so I am going to try and cool down with a photo card collection of SKE48 members wearing lovely yukata.

Please enjoy this photo gallery of SKE48 Trading Cards, 2015. OK, everyone get your fans ready …

Notice that every time this page loads, the the mosaic changes.

Remember Rena?

Rena Matsui.

Rena graduated SKE48 and the AKB48 Family in August, 2015. Is this the end of the Matsui-to-Matsui axis? Who will step up — to team up — with Jurina and become the new “dynamic duo” within SKE?

Matsui squared — Rena and Jurina (no relation).

KIMONOS ON MONDAY: Please don’t abandon me, Rena Matsui!

Slide2

AKB48, SKE48, Nogizaka46 member Rena Matsui has announced that she will graduate from the AKB Family this August!

The 23-year old idol has always been one of my favorites. She debuted in SKE48 in 2008, and quickly became one of the most popular members. Together with Jurina Matsui (no relation) she was the core of that sister group.

Matsui-san is special to me. I have had a special page “Bikini vs Kimono” since the start of my blog. Does Rena look most amazing in her bikini or her kimono? There was also a poll there. Results? WordPress Readers voted Bikini over kimono 54% to 46% !

Rena will pursue an acting career, which is not a big surprise. She has a beautiful, sculpted face. In fact I can’t understand why there are not more statues of Matsui-san!!! She recently had a role as a voice actress in Ultimate Otaku Teacher (as Suzane Kagami). She has also appeared in several  cute commercials.

Please enjoy this YouTube link of “Mujin Eki” (aka “The abandoned train station”. There I was at the train station turned into a ghost town. Alone with only my memories of twirling umbrellas.). This Yasushi Akimoto  song (lyrics here) was actually Iwasa Misaki’s hit single. Other members have also performed it on stage, including Mariko Shinoda. Rena does a great job with the song. It even looks like Rena is wearing Wasamin’s kimono here. (Maybe Misaki-san was out that night?)

I also snagged a few images from the performance here:

I wish Rena well in her new career!

Starlight: Rena Matsui born July 27, 1991. Happy Birthday too!

KIMONOS ON MONDAY (Week #18) Rena Matsui is a “Kimono Princess”

That got that right!

That got that right!

Rena Matsui (松井 玲奈 ) is a member of AKB48 J-Pop Idol family.  She is best known for her work with the SKE48 sister group.  During this past year’s group mix-up, shake-up, and reassignments,  Matsui-san also became a concurrent member of the Nogizaka46.  Rena has a beautiful face, of course.  Indeed, she has a face that could launch a thousand ships.

Rena looks especially elegant in kimono and yukata!  Please enjoy some of these lovely kimono images of Rena from the “Kimono Princess” magazine, and elsewhere.  See Kimono Princess site linked here.

 

KIMONOS ON MONDAY (Week #18) Rena Matsui a “Kimono Princess”

You may also enjoy my Pinterest page for Rena linked here.  Some of the images are kimono related.  Some not.  Some are actually pretty sexy.  All of them are beautiful.  Also, I have tried to make funny captions under some images.  Help me out and leave a funny caption in the comments!

Also, if you haven’t already, please VOTE for Rena-in-Kimono vs Rena-in_Bikini on my WP Page linked here.  I know that if you are following my blog, you may be biased in favor of Kimono.  I will summarize the poll next week.

Starlight: It took me five years to realize that Rena-chan is part of a “double star” system with Jurina Matsui.  

OH … THANK YOU!!!  Denny Sinnoh’s blog has now attained more than 5,000 views!!!  I know that many of these views are from Kimono lovers! Thank you all for visiting my blog.  I look forward to your comments!
