The covers for Mano Erina’s 9th single titled Seishun no Serenade have been released.
For the most part I am impressed with how well the covers look since they each feature a different setting and theme, and while they all have the same basic layout (picture of Mano looking cute, huge title, bright setting) Mano looks stunning in each one of the different covers.
The regular cover features an image of Mano smiling at the camera, which is simple but a nice and cute addition to the covers. Limited A features Mano posing next to what appears to be a window with sunlight coming in from behind her, and while it might have the same outfit as the Regular cover it is by far one of the best covers I have seen since she looks almost angelic.
The Limited B features Mano smiling while biting on her tongue, and while it might stand out from the rest because of the unique cute pose and the fluffy jacket I really liked it since we get to see Mano act a bit more natural than usual (it was most likely an offshoot image, but it looks great).
The Single V cover features Mano looking to the side (at the title) while daydreaming, and while it might be a bit too simple I did love the way that the simple title and the background mix in to make a calm but impressing setting.
The title is featured in bold Kanji from top to bottom covering the entire side of each cover in either black or silver, which isn’t as fancy as her previous singles but still one of the most impressing I have seen, and apart from having a completely different outfit from the PV I was impressed with all of the covers since we get to see Mano in an almost cute and angelic setting.
As far as my favorites I would have to say that Limited A with it’s angelic setting, Limited B with it’s cute pose, and the Single V cover with Mano calmly daydreaming are my favorite from among all of them, but hopefully fans have already selected their favorite and reserved their copy.
The release date is set for 1/26.
