Kaori Matsumura Uncensored! SKE48’s “Problem Child” to Release First Photobook “Mushuusei”!

Kaori Matsumura from SKE48 rose to fame by exposing her deepest thoughts and feelings to fans through her videos and Google+ posts but, with the release of her first photo book, “Mushuusei” (release date: September 29), Matsumura is set to be revealing a lot more!

“Mushuusei” is Japanese for “uncensored or unaltered” and Yuki Aoyama, who was responsible for Rino Sashihara’s first photo book “Sashiko”, zoomed in on the never before seen sides of Matsumura in a quest to show her true self. Locations to be featured in the book include Matsumura’s hometown of Wako, Saitama, the maid cafe where she worked as a maid in Akihabara, her current apartment in Nagoya, and even Shinjuku, where she worked as a nightclub hostess before becoming an idol in 2009.

Here is an example of one of Kaori Matsumura’s videos as she sits in the stands for the 2015 AKB48 Senbatsu Sousenkyo and cheers on her fellow SKE48 members as they rank in. Unfortunately, the footage of her ranking in at #13 has not been uploaded.

The photo book was announced during SKE48’s Request Hour concert in November of 2014 and Matsumura admitted that she had completely forgotten about it and wished that she had the chance to make some alterations to the content. However, as an idol who attacks taboo subjects head on, Matsumura noted that by exposing herself in this way, she would be attempting to break down yet another taboo.

Information on how to purchase “Mushuusei” has not yet been added to the usual online sites yet but, it will be 128 pages and B5 sized (50 cm × 70 cm) with a randomly selected double-sided B3-sized (35.3 cm x 50 cm) poster being included for those who order early and the listed price will be 2,000 yen.
