This a new challenge for me as this is my first photobook without the usage of my charms, which is cosplay, but I can’t believe that it has taken 1st place in Oricon and the reprinted issue has been decided. It makes me so happy that there are so many people who accept me just the way I am!
To those who haven’t seen it yet, please consider buying it!
