▲The shocking and sexy expression is unique to photo books.
Rikako Sasaki announced her graduation from ANGERME and “Hello! Project” with the spring tour in 2024. It has been decided that the graduation commemorative photo book (title undecided) of her, who is charismatic and popular among the group, will be released by the Shogakukan CanCam editorial department on Tuesday, June 4, 2024. On stage, Ms. Sasaki captivates the audience with her powerful dance performance, which has been called “baku-ike” by her fans, and her sweet, emotional singing voice, while at the same time captivating the audience with her friendly and innocent character and her “gap moe” style. . Taking advantage of her love of fashion and her beautiful visuals that girls admire, she has also been an exclusive model for the magazine “CanCam” since 2021.
The concept of this work is “Rikako Sasaki that no one knows yet.” In addition to visual pages full of intimacy that will make you feel as if you are spending the day together, there are behind-the-scenes documents that give you a glimpse of the relaxed nature of spending time with the members until the group’s graduation, and long interviews that look back on their lives so far. We will take a closer look at the unknown inner world. During the photo shoot for the visual page, there was a scene where they strolled around Nakano, a place where they had fond memories of performing on stage many times as a group. From the sweet real faces photographed with no make-up to the sexy expressions that will thrill both men and women… Unseen charms are at full throttle! This is a book full of highlights, where you will be overwhelmed by the expressiveness of the models as they wear various fashions and makeup.
There is also a “morning routine style” shot of what you usually do in the morning from the moment you wake up.

[Message from Rikako Sasaki]
“It’s been four years since I published a book, so I’m really happy to be able to capture my image as an idol!
It’s the various aspects of myself that I’ve discovered through my activities, my “colors,” my true self, my words, and my friends. It’s filled with such important things and love, so I hope it’s conveyed to those who watch it. After I graduate, I think there will be more time where I won’t be able to see you than before, but I won’t be alone. I would be happy if I could share smiles and happiness through this photo book and become a book that touches someone’s heart.”
