The cover for Morning Musume’s Concert Tour 2011 Spring New Genesis Fantasy DX ~Welcome 9th Generation Members~ has been updated.
Here is the old cover for comparison:
UFA doesn’t update covers that regularly so it was a bit of a surprise to see that they changed the cover for their upcoming concert PB by replacing the concert picture they had with a new more exciting scene along with solo pictures of every member at the bottom, as well as increasing the black space at the top and zooming in the photos on the bottom blue bar, and while the layout looks the same I am very happy to see that they did improve the images since it looks a lot better.
The increased black space at the top fits the title of the concert perfectly and it looks like it blends in with the rest of the cover instead of simply overlapping. The middle picture was replaced from the shot of everyone in a line with a more exciting scene of every member encouraging fans to sing along, which adds quite a bit of energy, and with solo pictures of each member underneath it they did an amazing job by giving us a small preview of how each member looked throughout the concert.
Along with that another small improvement was that they zoomed in the photos they included below, which was a good decision since the old cover was somewhat hard to see, and while it isn’t that big of an improvement I am glad that they did that since it gives fans a closer look at each member.
For now the cover looks perfect, although the only thing that stands out for me is that the middle picture could be a bit higher since it looks like they added the image then just overlapped it with a ribbon of images on the bottom, but despite that it still looks amazing and I hope fans can get a copy of it when it is released since the new cover is a big improvement, thank you UFA!
The release date is set for 8/9.
