[Kasai Project] Launched for Kasai Tomomi, Including Solo Single, Photobook, Live and CM

Kasai Tomomi will become the next member of AKB48 to have a solo single. Her debut will release on 26 December 2012 under Nippon Crown. This is not all, as a [Kasai Project] has been launched, including a solo photobook to be released in January 2013.

Before the single and photobook, however, is a solo live to be held at Tokyo Racecourse on 25 November 2012 during the Japan Cup. Keeping with horse race theme, she will star in a JRA (Japan Racing Association) CM entitled AKB no Gachi Uma which will start airing from the 18th November. Chiyuu won the opportunity to star in this CM back in May in a competition against other AKB48 members.

This Kasai Project is very interesting, as each of the things she is doing would be big news for any member of AKB48, let alone all of them happening at the same time. The timing of this project is also very curious, since she has recently been receiving some negative press for withdrawing from the reality TV show where she had to live off 10,000 yen for one month after not appearing in the second episode.
