Maki Goto
Maki Goto's 2008 Calendar

Fall is rapidly approaching and the declining calendar pages are there to remind us all that the calendar season has opened once again. This time of the year is always met with a plethora of calendars, with attractive covers which are bound to sell out fast. As always, the most popular musicians, actors and idols have a calendar designed by their record label or talent agency. These calendars are usually issued by the company Try-X Ltd. Most of the time, calendars are released either in B2 size or else as desktop format.

Hello!Project have released a series of calendars for several sub-groups such as C-ute, Berryz and Morning Musume. On the other hand, several solo artists have once again released her own calendar. Maki Goto, Natsumi Abe and Aya Matsuura are the most popular picks in this category.

Once again avex has released a series of calendars for their most prominent artists, although some names are missing from the list, most particularly Hitomi Shimatani. On the other hand, regulars like BoA, Ayumi Hamasaki and Koda Kumi make their return. DBSK and AAA are also releasing their own calendar. Several fanclubs are releasing these calendars early in September, with some extra goodies included. With vivid covers and bold photographs, these calendars are bound to be firm favourites for many. Hamasaki would once again return to Hawaii for her calendar, while Koda’s trip to Los Angeles, while filming for her single “FREAKY“, would include the shoot for the calendar too.

For those interested in purchasing, these calendars are available on sale at CDJapan, HMV and Yesasia. Prices range around ¥2,200 to ¥2,400, depending on the artist and the format released.

Where are the Sony Records artist lol. When i browsed the Cdjapan website for calendars, all I saw was mainly Avex artist, I guess Sony is getting too cheap these days. I don’t mind Avex artist but it’s like ‘in your face’ releases all the time.
