The cover for Arihara Kanna’s DVD titled “Smile Again” has been released.
Just by the looks of the cover and the back it looks as if they’re trying to make the theme “Hawaii” or hint that Kanna was in Hawaii. First off on the back cover it shows Kanna eating some “shave ice” which is a popular treat here in Hawaii. Next the lei on the front cover gives it away since leis are normally worn by visitors to the islands. Finally all the bathing suit shots of her hints of the beach/ocean but I wouldn’t take that last hint as Hawaii since a lot of DVD/PB has them in a bathing suit just posing.
I’m not sure what the front cover header says but I think of it sort of distracting from Kanna. The yellow everywhere in the front is sort of an eye catch and the circle with “Smile Again” just catches your attention fast. But they put it by Kanna’s face so you eyes may drift to her afterwards. The back cover isn’t too bad since there’s more Kanna than words and nothing stands out too much.
As for the title itself I’m not sure what they mean by Smile Again but it could have something to do with the way she left H!P or maybe it could be hinting as a comeback for Kanna. Either way hopefully all fans will support her and buy a copy when the DVD releases.
The release date is set for 1/27.
