Idols♥ very much like beauty while timeless go through fashion trends and the like being a sign of the times and with each issue presented here each Friday I’ll be selecting a few articles to scan to give a visual and text so you’ll be able to see the ever changing evolution of idols♥ in a chronological timeline of sorts. Check in each Friday for more from this ongoing series =).
Also with each issue I’ll be including the contents page ↑↑↑ and here it’ll be interactive with you as if there are any additional articles/pictorials you’d like to see scanned that you see in the contents page you can simply request them and I’ll add those article/pictorials to these individual posts.
Today’s issue features covergirl Hinagata Akiko a cute “bouncy*” idol (pre~date before there were Pirates or Yuuka to demonstrate @ length how studies have shown that a girls’ cleavage can add years to a man’s life expectancy & cause him to abruptly lose train of thought :P) who also took her career into t.v. dramas and music through the late 90’s and when you consider all of the multi~tasking idols would be encouraged to venture into back then till today, it’s seemingly inevitable that a role as a J~pop idol♥ would nearly always take place….some good, some bad…but always cute =). I was considering adding Akiko’s music single releases~* here but on a second thought, thought it better to not disrupt the format of these posts but as always you can request additional content from most posts here as there’s usually something a bit more to share in many cases. And speaking of her venture into music as a singer, Hinagata Akiko’s early image of quintessential pin~up girl translated perfectly into her role as the desirable or rather lusted* after pin~up girl for one…..well, naughty Crayon Shinchan and “six color’s boy” was born~.
Also featured is an idol♥ whom I think still represents one of more underrated and graceful vocals born in the 90’s as between 1993~1997 Mochida Maki released two albums and six singles which I still think represents some of the very best songwriting in the genre to this day~. I could go on and on about her voice and the songwriting but I’ll leave that to an upcoming revamped post~ currently being re~mediated and enhanced with more imagery to accompany which may be ready by tomorrow.
Additional articles of note include: Uchida Yuki whom until the latter 90’s I thought to be the first coming of Hirosue Ryoko no not in the sense of them being anything alike visually or mentally but rather how it initially puzzled me as I bore witness to their always heightened level of attention and popularity for years until finally seeing the light in both….yep it took me awhile xD/ And speaking Hirosue Ryoko this magazine dates so far back that she’s featured here as a “Now Catch” girl which signifies the next wave~♥ so to speak, of idol♥ awesomeness/ And imagine of you could send idols personal questionnaires and actually get back genuine replies!!! From general personal topics to boys to work to their free time a most well rounded list of idols take part and those are scanned a bit below for your reading pleasure =)…some notable idols included are Miura Rieko, Tomosaka Rie, Murata Kazumi, Hinagata Akiko, Mochida Maki, Sakai Miki, Haneda Erika, Katou Noriko, Okina Megumi, Kanno Miho, Shinohara Ryoko, Ohno Mikiyo and YES!!! even Hamasaki Ayumi…..and check out the cuuuuuuuuuute tiny Ayu pic from back then!!/ Shinohara Ryoko interview/ a most rare~* Moritaka Chisato guest feature pictorial for this genre of magazine!!!…and um something tells me that her cover text maybe should’ve read “Special GUEST FEATURE?”…and not ‘FUTURE?’ but really tomato…tomatoe…potato…potatoe???…does anyone really care lol sorry Al xD / Suzuki Sarina as cute as ever!!…and last week’s covergirl♥/ J~pop news and releases~* for events, singles & albums which include Nishida Hikaru, Sakai Noriko right in the middle of the “Hoshi no kinka” craze!!/ Nagasaku Hiromi drama news/ Kanno Miho…album, single and video news!!/ Visual Queen winnersand releases~* which includes Enomoto Kanako and Kahara Tomomi….whew flashback/ ZARD’s amazing “Ai ga mienai” release/ and more single releases from DEEN, Miura Rieko, Moriguchi Hiroko and Be-B/ Be sure to check out the page featuring Kanno Miho & Miura Rieko!/ Miss Up girl Tate Misato whom I really had a feeling about back then like she was destined for idol~actress~anything really greatness….she’s so adorable~♥!!/ Idol~”youth” pictorials on Kanazawa Akane and Shimada Sara….well I’ll just say that they appear “that” youthful here but actually they’re now even “U~” like for even back then :P/ Hazuki Riona….it’s always amazing and refreshing to see even an idol~infused publication like UTB feature a beauty who’s image is more on the model than idol side in a sense and you’ll know exactly what I mean when you see her pictorial which is posted here last as it physically closes this issue and here @ just 20 years old Riona is quite mesmerizing~*.
