Idols unzipped...

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 =).

BOMB October 1996 (1)

BOMB October 1996

Today’s issue of BOMB magazine is quite a special~* one as it marks their 200th issue!!! It’s pretty amazing when you consider just how long running this idol publication has been going on which dates back to the 1979 =O and a bit further down into today’s scans you’ll find a celebratory article which features some very prominent names in idol history posed as covergirls going way back including Nakamori Akina, Onyanko Club, Sakai Noriko, (a very very young!!) Miyazawa Rie, CoCo, Miura Rieko, Tomosaka Rie, Vivian Hsu, Okina Megumi and Nishida Hikaru to name just a few/ The intro also features some heavy hitters in music & idol entertainment as Nakayama Miho, Sakai Noriko, Nishida Hikaru, Sakurai Sachiko, Uchida Yuki & Amuro Namie are each shown at current date coupled with early BOMB article features on each of them (would be pretty amazing~* to own a copy of the issue featuring Amurochan as it goes all the way back to her Super Monkey days!!)/ Covergirl and main gravure feature articles are on Enomoto Kanako whom you met in a past posting from this series =) and she’s just so cute~♥!!! Here we’re treated to an extended pictorial, BOMB’s trademark “Body Check” feature, long interview, growing up photos and article (yay for idol baby pics!), Kanako’s personal diary entries covering her summer vacation day by day, the then current works of Kanako including her drama appearances where I think you’ll surely recognize quite a few famous faces co~starring and omg!

Also Kanakochan goodies!/ Actress Sakai Maki long interview/ Visual Queen winner Aoki Yuko interview/ Hmm…some “Iguana” drama series featuring Kanno Miho and talk about creepy!/ Birthday snippits on Nishida Hikaru & Kanno Miho in Idol News + Mochida Maki’s voice actress debut in the anime for yes~! “Hana yori dango”/ Gravure feature on Suzuki Sarina whom you’re becoming most familiar with ne~*…she was appearing in so many magazines back then =)!/ Pictorial on Niiyama Chiharu/ Pictorial on Yamada Mariya whom yes~ you guessed it!…also ventured into a J~pop career albeit most briefly and if anyone’s interested in seeing her first press music debut release as well as listening to her songs you can request that here and I’ll post it up~ =)/ Idol Premium Goods celebrating BOMB’s 200th! which include some very cool and unique gifts from featured idols including Kanno Miho, Hirosue Ryoko, Okina Megumi, Hinagata Akiko (perhaps the most interesting present!!), Sakai Miki, Niiyama Chiharu, Enomoto Kanako, (A moooooooost young!!!!)
