iirc, the 10th anniversary stop is for calendars, while for mags is 30yo, as arashi were featured there in their 11th anniversary too but stopped once leader was 30. Still, they lose those 3-4 big idols mags but they can be in plenty more, all those tvguides and fashion mags and all... i felt these last months arashi had more mags than ever (talking bout them as a reference).
I thought, seeing their popularity, that this rule could be ignored this time, but no... they stopped, at their peak, when they were selling SO many of those mags just because they were there! I'm glad that at least we had very very very nice photoshoots in their last appearance there.
why "only" 5 editions for SZ? kisumai had more for their debut single, right?
I can't help thinking it would have been better to let kisumai do the volleyball thing and not debut another group merely months after them. *pats kisumai*
Plus with that name. -_- Not that kisumai is better, but... i was shocked.
Anyway, best of luck to them! ^_^
I like november
