Morning Musume’s official website has been updated with a new group profile picture for their 46th single titled Only You.
We already got the chance to see a preview of this exact same photo a while ago, but it was very (very) small, so finally we get to see a clearer image where everyone’s hairstyles and expressions are shown.
First of all, the interesting thing about the picture is the lineup since we usually see the girls standing in 3 rows (top, middle, bottom), and I’m really happy to see this change since it shows more of a “group” image that Momusu have. Also, weirdly enough, Ai-chan isn’t standing in the middle as usual since she is on the bottom left while Mizuki is standing in the middle of the top row.
As for the members, this is Ai-chan’s first group picture with her blonde hair and she smiling cutely next to Reina who has her hand reached out just like Sayumi, and Riho is standing between those two looking cute with a new hairstyle. Eripon and Zukki are at the edges of the top row both doing peace signs and while Zukki, Gaki, Aika, Fuku-chan and Sayumi have a “bang-free” style, their is a nice variety in the hairdos which is always nice to see.
Overall, I was pleased with this picture since it’s slighty different from what we’re used to, and hopefully the individual photos will be updated soon to see the outfits.
The release date is set for 6/15.
