    To commemorate her 15 years career, starting from November 15th Saaya will start crowdfunding project for her upcoming PB
    She said that it’s a PB which fans can also plan and direct, I assume that mean those who contribute can also voice their wish about what they want to see
    Saaya's semi-nude PB from 2015 is her last physical PB and mark her 10th years career in gravure world, after that Saaya only release digital PB or picture set, it’s pretty obvious that her semi-nude PB kind of hard to beat
    As of right now there’s no other information about it, I hope whoever participate can suggest place, what to wear and what kind of pose that are worthy for Saaya’s 15th years long career commemoration PB

    Saaya just crowdfunded JPY 2,757,000 (US$26,000++) from her target of JPY 2,000,000 in just one stream event
    As expected, she said the participants can suggest place, bikini and pose they're want to see
    I don't know what kind of PB she'll make but she also said she want to make a worthy PB for her 15 years commemoration PB

    I thought this PB was only going to be released to the people who fund raise this PB. Also the the top tier is already sold out.

    So just to get the book and DVD, you need 18,000 yen? Oy...

    Not that I can afford it, but when does it end, and can dirty gaijin pigs like myself help fund it?

    Of course it is. If you could afford that, wouldn’t you do it?

    There are no contributor limit for JPY 3000-18000 tier
    It will end at 15th December

    In her stream she said there are some foreigners who already contribute
    She also said that for foreigner some of the features may not be available for them (maybe she talk about valentine dinner??)

    The most interesting thing is she mention about her 10th anniversary semi nude PB and she said she want to make worthy PB for her 15 anniversary, whatever that mean
    While I believe she won't go full frontal nude, I think she realized and prepared to make comparable PB

    Does the website and crowd fund photobook ship internationally?

    Then perhaps it’s time to start setting aside some money. For the valentine date thing, I would assume, at the very least, you need to be in Japan on your own, and speak Japanese (if you didn’t, that would be pretty awkward), but it would surprise me in the least if it’s restricted to natural-born Japanese citizens, or even to ethnically-Japanese people. Now that I say that, “people” is a gender-neutral word; I wonder if a woman would be allowed...

    I don’t think she’ll go full nude, unless she truly intends for this to be the last-ever thing in her entertainment career. To my knowledge, posing nude in Japan is treated...differently than it is in most other countries, from a societal angle. In Europe and America, mainstream actresses and singers can appear nude without it noticeably changing their career. But in Japan, it seems like most celebrities avoid nudity, and if they do nudes, that becomes what they’re known for. This is just a personal observation, I don’t have any real knowledge on the subject.

    Maybe we should crowdfund this here, at least to the tier that includes the DVD. It’s not a small amount of money, but otherwise none of us will ever see it. I tried searching Yahoo Auctions just to see if any of these backer-exclusive things were listed, and couldn’t find anything, even for an insanely high starting bid.

    i would be willing to contribute. Would anyone else?

    I'm interested, Stooky. DM me if there's any progress.

    I will also be interested in it.

    i am interested and had begun filling out the form for the ¥18,000 support plan, but in the User Information (ユーザー情報) at the bottom of the page, the fields only accept addresses in Japan,

    saaya_greenfunding_01. saaya_greenfunding_02.

    which i suppose answers the following question,

    it doesn't appear so. the foreign supporters may be located in Japan, or perhaps they used the contact link to acquire a special delivery plan.

    i am trying to get someone to help me with this, but cannot be sure it will go through. i will try to find more information and stay updated on this.

    Thank you. I was wondering about this myself. I wonder if one of the forwarding services I use could handle this...

    Getting a hold of this looks a bit bleak.

    I just sent an inquiry about foreign donations. Hopefully they respond, and soon.

    They responded. They said I have to contact Saaya’s project team directly. It looks like this’ll be complicated.

    I probably can’t afford to do anything anyway. I have two traffic tickets to pay off as of this morning, as if I didn’t have enough to worry about this upcoming month.

    The project’s email is fc@saayaofficial.com, in case anyone wanted to try.
