This is the first time in four years that a photobook was able to top the book ranking.
“for No.∞” is Kanjani8’s gift to their fans as a celebration of their 8th year anniversary. The collections featured members looking back to their past 8 years and expressing themselves anew. Each member was given a digicam to make a photo diary of their entire summer followed by a long interview. Aside from fashion spread with the theme “black and white”, the members also have photos that focus on them as musicians.
