Check out the full post after the break!
Morning Musume – Morning Musume Concert Tour 2011 Spring New Genesis Fantasy DX ~Welcome 9th Generation Members~ (PB)
PB release for Morning Musume’s Spring concert tour which is also the 9th generation’s first tour as members.
PBs for me are the perfect release since they focus on one member and provide high quality pictures for fans to enjoy over and over again without having to be near a computer or a TV, and while PBs for concerts don’t focus on only one member they do provide one of the best ways to enjoy the tour since they have hundreds of photos of all members throughout the tour.
This is the first time I get to see a few pages from a concert PB since there aren’t usually that many previews (compared to solo PBs), but I have to say that I’m impressed since the few previews I have seen are shots of some of the pages where we get to see picture upon picture of the members smiling at the camera from backstage, posing with other members (like Sayu and Reina in the image above) or performing on stage, and while they might not be giant one paged pictures we are used to seeing from solo PBs they are still a perfect way to see the concert in a new way since you get to see the members as the tour progresses.
It might not be the concert DVD although it’s still a pretty good way for fans to enjoy the tour in a more complete way since it basically covers most of their performances, although the only disadvantage I would see is that most of the images are in a slight grid layout which means that they aren’t big, but it’s great to see that they did it this way since they can include many more pictures.
Like I always say, seeing the images on a computer cannot compare to having the PB in your hands since you can see every page clearly without having to worry about resolution and also because it’s simply the best way to enjoy them so I strongly recommend everyone who can to check out this release since it’s the best way to enjoy the tour.
The only disadvantage I see is that the pictures on some of the pages are a bit small (such as the one with the ring of pictures around Gaki, Ai, Kanon and Mizuki) which might be a bit disappointing for some since you might want to see a picture in a slightly bigger resolution, although for the most part it seems that there are quite a lot of pictures that are big and easy to see.
This PB in my opinion is a must have for any fan who wishes to relive or see the tour over and over in a more complete way since it’s packed with hundreds of pictures of each member smiling at the camera and posing with other members from backstage as well as performing on stage in the many outfits for the singles, and while the layout seems a bit random it’s a pretty good way to see what the members were doing as the tour was happening so I strongly recommend it for everyone who loved the tour.
* The PB is sold out on HMV since they mention it was available in a limited quantity, but there are still a few copies left on CDJapan
