  1. Woah, you have sharp eyes. I already knew about Takamina's armband, so that wasn't anything out of the ordinary for me. The only ones I really noticed was Mariko's tail and Yuko's gloves. Minegishi's glasses were obvious too, but I didn't really think much about it. XD Do you know what's the reasons for each individual member's items?

  2. Rin, No clear reason, just add ons I guess. Maeda is on her Jacket .Check their wrists/hands on close ups and belt lines on wide shots and rotations.

  3. That Oku Manami is such a mistery.
