Alo-Hello C-ute 2014 Photobook Making-of

I recently received the C-ute Alo-Hello 2014 pb and it is a really beautiful book as you’d expect. It’s quite thick and comes with a dvd making-of as usual. What’s a bit more unusual this time is the length of the dvd. It’s 30 minutes rather than the usual 15 or so. Therefore since there are pics from the pb all over the net I decided for a change to screencap the dvd.


I got the Wanibooks edition that comes with a lovely 2L photo.

Anyway onto the caps…


As an opening shot this tells you everything you need to know abut the next 30 minutes. Anything can happen in the next 30 minutes. Especially stuff involving bikinis and sunshine!


Despite Mai’s hat this dvd was filmed in Hawaii and not Californi. Californi? Eh? “Californi eh”! Geddit? >.>


Insert swinging joke here.


Airi looks great of course. I’m not sure what “A day in dream” means though. Then again I’ve never been a day in dream believer. >.>

No they don’t kiss. It’s not that type of dvd!


Chisato with hair extensions. She suits longer hair.

Nacky as adorable as always.

Maimi really is pure beauty.

Zipwire time. There’s probably a fetish for zipwire action amongst some people. If not there might be after this. Not sure why someone has one in their back garden though.

Next up everyone is feeling blue. It’s denim all the way…

Mmm…Maimi looks equally beautiful!


The Queens of Jpop wave from the royal balcony.


Maimi’s smile is just one of the most infectious things.


No they don’t kiss. It’s not that type of dvd.


Although they are both swingers. Ahem.


Best seat in the house…well in the garden.


Black dresses!

Up next it’s beach, bikinis, bouncing and err…bewbage?

Then it’s turn for each members solo beach shoot. Starting with Big Gob…

Followed by Chisato who looks ten times better with longer hair (even if they were just extensions)…

After Chissa comes Mai. I’ve got to be honest here, I’ve never paid Maimai that much attention although she was very likeable in Paris. But she does have a great figure and in this white bikini she does look effortlessly nommable…

vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h15m13s98 vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h16m25s17 vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h16m44s238

Maimi of course looks radiant and as near damn perfect as it’s possible to be…

Finally of course is Airi. Here she is doing a piece to camera…


And then here is…Chisato? Some mistake surely?


After a totally random few seconds of Chissa it goes to Airi’s part. Something was buggered up in the editing I think.

Finally it’s back to the black dresses from earlier (cheapskates)…

vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h25m27s92 vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h25m45s16 vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h25m54s104

Maimi looks great of course. Airi has the nicer dress though. I love the back of it.

vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h27m36s99 vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h27m52s240 vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h28m03s118 vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h28m28s114 vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h28m38s210vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h29m03s201

I think Mai’s dress is the prettiest overall. Well it’s not an overall, it’s a dress but err…what? Anyway there’s one final piece to camera and then it’s bye bye or Aloha or whatever…

vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h30m18s133 vlcsnap-2014-03-18-02h31m06s140

And there you have it. Frankly it’s 30 minutes of beautiful girls in beautiful scenery. All the members look great, there’s lots of smiling and laughing and if you like these idols you will probably like the making-of (and the photobook itself too). If like me you love these idols then you will love the making-of and pb. If you don’t like these idols why are you even reading this? Also does the nurse know you are out of bed? Get back to bed NOW!

  1. Fantastic screencaps – Thanks for that.

    They all look really fantastic. While Airi is still my favorite, they are such a great group. You’re definitely right about Chisato’s hair. I used to not think so highly of Mai but I’ve gradually realized that she’s just as important to the group as the others. Now that she’s grown up so much, I’ll go back and listen to Disco Queen and think how great she was. C-ute is still my favorite H!P group. This DVD looks amazing and there are a lot of great screencaps in this post. Thanks for sharing.

    • I never used to think highly of Mai but really C0ute are great as a five member group and I think each member is important. I liked Kanna and Erica but somehow these five members seem so tightly knit that I can’t imagine one of them leaving and it still being as good.
