The AKB girl looks out of place in this picture.

So...are they advertising handbags, or what exactly?

Woot more pretty girl pictures! I love it.

Does it mater? No one is gonna buy, whatever they are selling. Just enjoy the beauty.

High boots in 35 degree heat! But they are cute I guess. The next pretty face is a sort of eternally renewable national treasure...

Eco-bags, i guess.

I would guess Tomomi is the setter when they play beach volley ball.

Hello, ladies.

Pretty girls, pretty vacant.

Is this necessary? Every time one of these pictures comes up someone feels the need to dump all over the girls in it. How you manage to determine someone's level of intelligence from a picture of that person holding a handbag is beyond me.

I think they are all cute Triu-kun. There are many things beyond and that is what is good about life. I hope they do well.

They are not just cute, they are beautiful. Tsuchiya-san is really tall. Yes, she IS wearing heels, but they all are. However she is the tallest of all. I wonder how tall she is? I'm sure some commenter will hit google, and then come back with her height for me, so I'm not going to go and check it myself. I'm just wondering. I'm 6'5" so I LOVE to see really really tall women.

@ triumvere

it is a simple fact that these girls have nothing to contribute intellectually to anything of import in the public sphere, and are merely being used as props by the media to distract people who otherwise might be paying attention to things that actually mater.

Have to agree with the IronChef. AKB girl is out of place, the rest of the girls are a foot taller even without heals. Jessica is the best one...damn she is hot!

Prettiest girls in the whole wide world!

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

Rola?

Even Itano knows that she is out of place; like a rabbit in a pack of gazelles.

To be honest, I'm kind of sick of seeing these pictures of superficial-looking girls on here.. (unless of course they are scantily clad.) "These girls are like a collection of Japan’s national treasures. They’re so cute.” Really... What do these girls do besides 'look cute', encourage consumerism and materialism, and send the message to young girls that they need to look and dress a certain way or or else...??? If these are what Japan considers 'national treasures', then it is pretty sad.

They have all been brought up (brainwashed by TV and magazines) to believe that looking cute (a.k.a childish) and acting like a 14 year old is sexy. Now, IMHO Aya Sugimoto has mastered the art of looking sexy without the childish behavior :)

Far right - best legs of the bunch. And yeah, the one next to her - what the heck is she doing there? Ebi-chan, the older she gets, the longer her skirt. Hang it up! This shrimp is overdone.

"Rola?"

Must be Roli's sister.

"Hazuki Tsuchiya, 17"

We may be seeing more of Hazuki in the future.

Agree the AKB girl looks a little out of place, but on the whole a nice collection of ladies.

Yeah, great more pics of women so the sexists can gloat and drool like pre teen school boys.These womens fees just add to the price of the handbags. They get paid to stand and smile, a chimp could be trained to do that and have more personality.

These women should be at home with a duster in hand or baking some delicous cakes.

Way to contradict yourself. Was that supposed to be joke or something?

Keep up! No offence at all, but are you American? You seem a little lacking in the sarcasm appreciation department :)

I used to teach Ebi-chan English,before she was famous. Don't remember a thing about her. And I bet that's mutual.

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

I like Mizuki's handbag the best. Jessica looks great and healthy as usual with a nice tan.

@Lucabrasi

Are you kidding me? I am the king of sarcasm, but ya know sometimes these things don't come through on the internet and there are also plenty of people who say dumb stuff and contradict themselves. I honestly couldn't tell which was the case here, which was why I asked.

I'll have to get my sarcasmometer calibrated.

I hear you. I guess we need some kind of sarcasm emoticon.

Maybe it's a trick of the light, but the girl on the right either needs a longer skirt or realize that support hose is not the best thing to wear in a photo shoot.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

great legs

1 ( +1 / -0 )

In comparison to the others, the girl on the right, Hazuki Tsuchiya has the most natural facial expression. This is in contrast to Ebi-chan, where the facial expression looks like focused on the camera and then frozen - a visibly fake smile.

Second from the left has some horrible socks. Take them off girl...show some toes.

Haters gonna hate...

Hate to admit it, but the 17 year-old does steal the show. Her legs are awesome. Not like Mizuki's and Jessica's, who's are just skinny. Although predictably cute and superficial, a big part of me hopes this helps sell some handbags. God knows that the economy needs some good news, especially a boost in consumer spending.

Good Lord ! Those legs and those knees ! And the one on the right : fat thighs and frail legs...

“I hope we can reenergize Japan with beautiful smiles.”

Did numbers 2 and 5 not receive the memo?

And why does nobody understand the difference between cute and beautiful? Number 2 is trying to undermine her beauty by wearing something cute in her hair so she looks babyish, but it doesn't cut it. Put these buirds in a black basque with fishnets and some halfwit would still start squeaking "kawaii".

Itano chan kinds of reminds me of the girl from The Ring. I'm not putting this group down or anything....but I see a lot more attractive women than these just in passing daily. But that is JMO.

You are right, I put my glasses on and I know I goofed : I should have written "funnel-shaped thighs"

"funnel-shaped thighs"

Ha ha! Everyone's thighs are thicker toward the hips and thinner toward the knees. Check it out!

Wow who on earth thought Itano was a right pick? I feel sorry for her, even tho she is cute, she is out legged by the others. I hate Rola, she is NOT cute and the entertainment industry should stop recruiting more halfus just because they are halfu.

and who complains about the legs? those are some nice legs.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Whats up with the leg fetish on JT? Did I miss something??

Yeah Itano does not match the picture. Even her expression shows she knows it. Shes usually smiling from ear to ear in every photo but in this one LOL looks totally depressed and not happy to be there at all.

Rola is the best !
