Shinoda Mariko to produce her own magazine [Mariko Magazine]

note: Melos is feeling very feverish and won't be available for the next few days

Remember when Itano Tomomi "produced" her own photobook? Well Shinoda Mariko has bigger plans than than that. As one of the most visible members of AKB48, especially given her height and looks, Mariko-sama will be chief editor of her own fashion magazine titled [Mariko Magazine] to be released October 28.

Fans have been speculating about a graduation for a long time. Mariko is the oldest member of AKB48 at age 25, she is extremely popular outside of the idol group, and is busy with modeling gigs, variety shows, and occasional acting job. So busy in fact, that she barely attends AKB48 stage performances right now. Perhaps this is preparing her for something bigger. And hey, 1st generation graduate Kawazaki Nozomi opened her own nail salon and started her own apparel brand. Maybe Mariko will take a similar path. Preorders are available on amazon.
