Jimmy and Dave get together to look through Nogizaka46’s Ikuta Erika’s new photobook, “Tenchou” or in English “Modulation”.

“Tenchou” or “Modulation” is a term in music when the key is changed within the piece. It’s a fitting title for Ikuta Erika’s debut photo book as it captures her transformation and maturation as an idol. Shot in Germany, the viewer is taken through the sights that composed Ikuta Erika’s childhood.

Trigger Warning: Bad German pronunciations ahead.
