Morning Musume’s 9th and 10th generations release photobook
On September 18th, 9th and 10th generation Morning Musume members held a release event with 1,200 fans for their first official photobook “Morning Musume 9th & 10th Generation 1st Photo Book”.
Previously, the 9th and 10th generation members had a gravure scramble battle which was serialized on “UTB” magazine, but it ended in a draw. So in order to settle the dispute, an athletic meet was held. The photobook includes photos from the athletic meet as well as photos that weren’t used in the magazine. Since 10th generation won in the end, it was announced that their own serialization will start on UTB as the reward for the competition.
10th generation member Ishida Ayumi (15) said, “We hate losing, so even if there was no prize, we wouldn’t have lost.”
