Tomoaki Maeno's Photobook - one AM

While I was browsing on my Tumblr feed, I saw a post from a fellow Tomoaki Maeno fan that he's going to have his first photo book to be published a day before Christmas 2016. I am so delighted and sad at the same time, since I don't know if I'll be able to purchase it. But through a group of friends, they made it possible and told me that it's a birthday gift from them to me. I am so happy! So now, I am making my first blog post for 2017 and it's all about Tomoaki Maeno's photo book titled "one A.M"

Tomoaki Maeno's first photo book one A.M was published last December 24, 2016. It's dimensions is 10.4 x 8.5 x 0.5 inches with thick, glossy pages, hard-bounded with semi-thick cover. It contains 160 pages of different photos of Maeno.

one A.M photo book features the Japanese voice actor / Seiyuu Tomoaki Maeno in different scenarios, locations, and more. Some features that you can see inside are:
  • Photo set of Maeno with his morning routine;
  • There are some shots of him taken from his previous photo shoots from other magazines. I don't actually mind since some of the photos are the unpublished ones;
  • There's a section inside where you can have a glimpse of Maeno's photos from his childhood until his teenage days;
  • A section where they compile Maeno's blog posts / diary from year 2009 to 2014;
  • A short interview section plus thank you message with his signature.

This photo book was purchased last December 22, 2016 (ordered in advance) at CD Japan and arrived on our local post office last December 29, 2016. I only managed to get this last January 3, 2017 due to holiday rush. The photo book price is ¥3,5000 (around Php 1,470.00).

I saw other fans post their copy of the photo book and they have a 3R size photo along with the book. I wonder why mine doesn't have one :(

Tomoaki Maeno is famous for being one of the Seiyuus with deep voice at the same time, can adopt and switch to higher or much lower pitch depending on the role. He's been noted as the voice actor for Camus (Uta no Prince-Sama), Hak Son (Akatsuki no Yona), Haru Kaidoh (Super Lovers), Arsene Lupin (Otome Game and soon to be anime Code: Realize) and Riku Kurose (Ten Count drama CD).

If you are a fan of Tomoaki Maeno, you should buy this photo book. One thing is for sure: your eyes will feast with lots of handsome photos of him! *kyaaa* Personally, I am glad that they decided to publish a photo book because Maeno deserves the love and attention. He's one of the voice actor who's blessed with good looks *winks.*

Oh and by the way, I have a video where I unbox the whole package! You can watch it here:

A gentle reminder for everybody:
  • Be sure to purchase the photo book to show your support to everyone behind its production!
  • If you are a Japanese-resident, you can purchase it at Animate stores. If you are a non-Japanese resident like me, you can buy the photo book thru Amazon Japan and CD Japan. This item is available for International shipping.
  • If you have a copy of the photo book, please don't scan nor reproduce it. Let's avoid some copyright issues and of course give our support for the staffs. Please don't support scans if ever they've been available.
  • All photos uploaded here are blogger's owned. No one has the right to reproduce/repost it anywhere and remove the watermark especially without my permission.
This photo book is a treasure! I'll be keeping it and browse it all over again, especially when I need inspiration. Maeno is my second favorite next to Hirakawa. Having their photo book is another way of showing our support to them for what they do and contribute to anime and gaming industry :)
