Yamada Ryosuke of Hey! Say! JUMP Covers anan’s “Ai to SEX” Issue

On August 5, anan will release its annual “Ai to SEX” issue, and this year’s coverboy is Hey! Say! JUMP‘s Yamada Ryosuke!

Ryosuke worked out at home during the coronavirus stay at home measures, so it was a pleasant surprise when anan approached him to do this year’s issue. He said that in the ten days before his gravure shoot, he restricted his food and water intake in order to show off his body better. Ryosuke said that this photoshoot shows off his usual sex appeal, but with something new added.

Ryosuke’s “Ai to SEX” issue has a theme similar to “Romeo and Juliet”, featuring a love story between him and woman. One of the photos in the shoot features Ryosuke in the shower, showing his body down to his groin. This image was released to newspapers and can be seen below, along with the cover!
