Rina Koike for Friday, March 2011.
This is really only peripherally interesting to the blog’s focus, but I find it strangely fascinating. Apparently, the magazine Friday found out about Kazue Fukiishi, an actress, frequenting the apartment of Masaharu Fukuyama, singer/actor.
Now, Amuse represents Fukuyama, the talent agency that also represents Ayaka Komatsu. And rumor has it that they basically cowed all major news media outlets into not running the story. It’s a matter of course for agencies to deny that their stars have relationships/sex lives/etc., which is ridiculous on a few million levels, but the total media silence is quite uncommon.
Anyway, like I said, I’m easily fascinated by the inner workings of Japanese media. On the bright side, I guess Amuse is very protective of their talent, so Ayaka is in good, if slightly frightening, hands.

Ayaka Komatsu for Friday, 2011. Gotta say, the outfit is cute. Though I can’t help but grumble at how impractical the top is, haha.

Miss Lady, you are getting close to showing all of the goods in these photos! I am not sure I approve (though I’m also sure many of you do. xD)
ETA: This sounds kinda slut-shame-y, which wasn’t my intention. It was to make a joke, but it was not a very good joke on every conceivable level. I do apologize. Ayaka, you do what you want; I will love you regardless because you are flawless. <3
