All 13 second-generation members from Sakurazaka46, whose 9th single “Jiejidoku” will be released on June 26th (Wednesday), appear on the cover and opening page of “B.L.T. July issue” to be released on May 28th (Tuesday)!
Sakurazaka46 attracts viewers with their powerful performances at live concerts and singing programs, while always putting themselves on creative filming sites and continuing to supply the world with works that stimulate the viewers. In this issue, we approach these girls with the theme of “Sakurazaka46 filming Sakurazaka46.”

The second-generation students who were photographed wore costumes that brought out their individuality, and showed off their
sophisticated visuals against a powerful red background. The sight of the second-generation students, who play an active role as the core of the group, walking together and facing the camera with serious eyes was a sight to behold.
In addition, the members will act as the behind-the-scenes staff for filming, such as the photography team, costume team, makeup team, and studio team, creating a fun and lively filming site just like a real film crew. This gravure allows you to enjoy both the charm of Sakurazaka46’s second-generation members as artists and their true faces in an atmosphere unique to their peers.

In addition, ahead of the Tokyo Dome performance of “Sakurazaka46 4th ARENA TOUR 2024 New Sakurazensen -Go on back?-” to be held on June 15th (Sat) and 16th (Sunday), we will introduce the performances since the last Tokyo Dome performance. A solo interview is also included in which we hear about the real feelings he felt during his activities and his enthusiasm for Sakurazaka46’s second Tokyo Dome performance. What are the words spoken by 13 people from the same period but from different backgrounds from their own perspectives? Delivered in a large volume of over 30 pages.
Himena Okamoto appears for the second time in the Nogizaka46 5th generation series. The focus is on the sad yet beautiful figure. Himena Okamoto appears in the series “Gravure Improvement Committee ~gravure a la mode~”, a series in which the 5th generation members of Nogizaka46 are photographed solo, with a different theme each time. This is the second time this series has appeared, and this time we shot with a “vintage” theme. We carefully captured her beauty wearing vintage clothing in a retro atmosphere. Please also pay attention to the 46-question, 46-answer survey project that is customary for this series.
≒JOY’s Reine Ezumi releases her charm with a cool solo gravure. JOY will release their 1st single “Teiikkan Disco” on Wednesday, June 12th≒ Reion Ezumi, who is the center of JOY, will appear for the first time! She is known for her sharp facial expressions and diverse expressiveness, and is photographed with a cool taste in a space where a decadent atmosphere and an industrial atmosphere coexist. In the interview, while looking back on the group’s trajectory over the past two years, he talked about what made him decide to continue his activities as a member of ≒JOY.
Hibi Kori from the popular live idol group iLiFE! takes on solo gravure for the first time!
A number of songs such as “Idol Life Starter Pack” have become a big buzz on SNS, attracting attention, and with a solo live scheduled for August 12th (Monday) at the Makuhari Messe Event Hall in Chiba, one of the most popular songs at the moment. Live idol group iLiFE! All the members appeared at the end of last month’s issue, but this time, 17-year-old Hibi Kori, who is in charge of orange, will appear solo. This is her first solo gravure, and we have prepared a variety of situations, such as having fun on playground equipment in the park and playing with bananas, to capture her 100-point smile and bubbly personality, which are her charms.
NGT48’s Kairi Sato, Kaho Mashita, Yuu Kitamura, Moe Sugimoto, Hanae Kita, Haruka Minamikawa, Momoka Okumura, and Yamanagi Sekino appear in the “reward” gravure!
Members of the team “Cute Heroes of Niigata” who won the championship in the collaboration event between NGT48 and the simulation game “Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Rondo of Battle” Kairi Sato, Kaho Mashita, Yuu Kitamura, Moe Sugimoto, Hanae Kita, and Minamikawa Group gravure of Haruka, Momoka Okumura, and Yamanagi Sekino is posted! The shooting took place at a location rich in nature in Niigata
Prefecture. Don’t miss out on the friendly atmosphere of the eight people, which can only be seen here. The interview also includes valuable memories from the collaboration event period.
Liella! Nako Misaki, who plays the role of Sensato from Arashi, appears in the solo gravure series project!
The Liella! solo gravure project, which was popular in 2022 and 2023, will be held again this year. With the theme of “Getting closer in the third year! Get closest to the 11 sparkling people!”, it will be more personal than ever before. In the third episode, Nako Misaki, who plays the role of Arashi Sensato, appears! This time, we filmed them in exciting situations, playing games together and riding in a car. This gravure allows you to feel her cute charm up close.
Active high school actress Mashiro Nakajima shows off her fresh swimsuit gravure!
Mashiro Nakajima, an up-and-coming young actress who debuted in 2022, makes her first appearance on B.L.T. in a swimsuit gravure. It captures the life-size figure of a 17-year-old, an innocence that has not yet been dyed in any color. We will deliver a fresh gravure that gives you a refreshing and dazzling feeling of youth.
Yuyu Chiba, a beautiful influencer who used to be a high school beauty pageant, makes her first appearance on B.L.T.!
Yuyu Chiba, who has a career including “High School Girl Beauty Pageant 2019 Finalist” and “Miss Magazine 2023 Top 16,” makes her first appearance on B.L.T. Although he has a soft demeanor, his expression changes to a sharp one when he stands in front of the camera. I captured Chiba in a mature and ennui style that I have never seen before.
