This Article Will Cover More Than Just Information About The Photo Book "Jurina"

And here is some great news about when Jurina Matsui released her first photo book called “Jurina” that year! Jurina Matsui, the Japanese idol singer that sings for the groups SKE48 and AKB48 would end up releasing her first solo photo book called Jurina on September 9, 2015. Since this is a historic moment for Matsui, it is fair to present a photo gallery of her. However, this article will also discuss the fact that she no longer has a concurrent position with AKB48. When the part about this photo book was first written, Matsui was singing for both AKB48 and SKE48.

A First Look at the Photo Book "Jurina"

What is the Focus of the Photo Book "Jurina" and Where Were the Photos Taken?

Matsui made her AKB48 debut back in 2008 as an 11 year-old. It has taken seven long years for Matsui to finally release a photo book. Sometimes, the wait is worth it however. The photo book is said to show two different sides of Jurina: as a “child” and an “adult.” Matsui revealed that during handshake events fans would always ask her when she would be releasing her first photo book. Matsui is now happy to be able to show her fans a side of her that they have not seen. Matsui also said happily that it has been seven years (at the first writing of this article) since she joined SKE48. The photo book will have shots where Matsui is dressed in a uniform as well as swimsuit pictures and surprise shots of her that have never been seen before. Matsui also mentioned that she feels like such an adult in the photos that were taken in L.A. Matsui was surprised and said that she is embarrassed that people will be looking at them. Jurina was shot in Tokyo, Okinawa, and Los Angeles.

Who Took the Photos for "Jurina" and What Came With It?

The photos were taken by famous photographer Tatsuo Watanabe who is known in the gravure idol industry. The photo book is said to come with a reversible B3 size poster. In addition to this, the first 10,000 people present at the release event would get a special DVD.

The News About Jurina Matsui's Decision to Work Only With SKE48

In October 2015, Jurina revealed that she will cancel her position with AKB48. She will work with SKE48 only. The announcement was made on the program called "AKB48 All Night Nippon Konya, Matsui Jurina ga Namahousou de Juudai Happyou SP." Also present during this show were Yui Yokoyama, then 22, of Kyoto and AKB48 producer Yasushi Akimoto. Matsui said that she had been discussing this matter with Akimoto for more than a year. She really loves SKE48. But since the graduation of Rena Matsui, Jurina said that she has had the resolve for one thing. That thing is to commit herself to working with SKE48 only. I don't blame her since working with two different musical groups at one time is exhausting. She also said that she wanted SKE48 to become a group that will lead the other groups. The first goal was to surpass AKB48. Since Jurina was in two groups at the same time, she had been having unclear feelings. Now that those feelings are gone, Jurina said that she hopes that this (being in SKE48) will become her driving force. Note: I first researched and wrote about this story back in October 2015.

Jurina Matsui is Still Successful in 2019

Now that Jurina Matsui has solidified herself in SKE48, she has a lot to look forward to and in fact has seen success again in 2019! I wrote back in February 2019 that she has been named center for the single Stand By You.
