Uchida Mayumi 1st Photobook [Iwa ni Shimiiru “Uchida-san” no Koe]

Uchida Mayumi will release her 1st Photobook [岩にしみ入る“内田さん”の声] [Iwa ni Shimiiru “Uchida-san” no Koe] on 22nd February 2013 for 1,260 Yen. The book, more of a "photo essay", seems to focus on her most famous moment - winning the 2010 Janken Tournament to become centre for AKB48's 19th single [Chance no Junban].

This came out of nowhere. Since winning the Janken in 2010, Ucchi hasn't made senbatsu for any further singles, apart from 2012's janken single [Eien Pressure] , and has failed to rank in any of the elections. I think she is a solid, cute, and under-appreciated AKB48 member so hope this book will both do well and raise her profile.
