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.
It’s Friday the 13th (;゜□゜)！！！Not really sure if I’m going to be able to conjure up anything scary or not tonight but you never know :P!
Tonight we take a look back at the now sadly discontinued Kindai publication as it was presented back in the late 90’s and really the very first realization you’d have after just a few moments of perusing its pages is that unlike the vast majority of idol magazines in circulation today, Kindai supported both the male and female fan~bases with a pretty equal balance in every issue~.
So while model/actress Yoshikawa Hinano graces this cover beautifully there’s also so much an equal abundance of male models, actors, musicians, idols and of course! Johnny’s♥!!! I actually own Yoshikawa Hinano’s I think lone J~pop album release and it’s totally pink~♥ and totally interesting!!!!! I mean if you’ve ever heard Yoshikawa~san speak you’d have a pretty good idea of what I mean by the word ‘interesting’ here :P. In case you’ve never heard the lovely model speak then let’s just say…….she has one of the world’s most cutely~mousy and at the same time uniquely~mousy~cutesy voices ever to exist…..period =). It’s almost a surreal experience listening to her speak and she could be just reading off the phone book to you in succession and you’d probably not really notice or care either as I think your fascination would far lay in just wow~ing at how she naturally speaks. Granted I haven’t heard the lovely Hinano~chan speak recently, but I imagine that voice is pretty eternal unless she had some sort of vocal chord work done xD. If anyone’s interested in hearing and seeing all of the artwork and images from her album just let me know here and I’ll post it asap~♥.
I was pretty giddy as I began scanning this Christmas issue I mean just with all of the idol~cheer and likewise related articles within all decked in holly~♥……..but before I go any further I so must share this one scan right away!!!!
Just pause for a moment and gaze at yes~! it’s Takizawa Hideaki (center), Imai Tsubasa (right) & Kawano Naoki (left)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They’re so cute!!!!! It’s a most miniature Tackey & Tsubasa long before there was Tackey & Tsubasa o(*´∀｀)o゛♥！！！(sigh*….) Okay, I hope you got a little kick out of that too….no pun intended of course =)!

But they’ve been popping up everywhere and even here in Hawaii~♥. Wait. What is a flash~mob exactly? Does anyone know? I’m kidding of course but it’s just that the act confuses me :P/ Yamaguchi Sayaka…who went cutesy idol~imagey for awhile and yes~ also ventured into J~pop and I have her singles and album releases to prove it =)! If you’re curious to hear just leave me a comment in requests or here in this post =). Her song “Little Wing” is absolutely awesome btw ＼(^o^)／☆/ Okina Megumi…ventured into J~pop too for awhile.

Chinen Rina..Okinawan beauty! Oh and I just found a little something for the whole Friday the 13th theme scare!!!!!! Her then current single was titled erm…….”Do~Do For Me”….(・c_・;)？Do~do? It’s a bit lost in translation but in any case guys……she’s asking for you to do something for her and I don’t think you’re going to like her request lol xD!!!!!!!!!! She seriously could have just come out and said crap~on~me but hm. That doesn’t sound as “sophisticated” lol I’m kidding this entire thing is totally gross (゜Д゜;) ！！！！！Or wait. Did she actually mean to just say simply “Do~me???” Kind of direct dontcha think? (・o・) At least buy me dinner before heading for home~base♥ lol :P! Happy Friday the 13th everyone ＼(^o^)／☆、．．．okay that was weird and awkward. I apologize 100% for Chinen Rina naming her song “Do~Do For Me”…that should have never happened if only she had an English speaking editor around =D And I do own all of her early J~pop catalog so if anyone’s interested in her songs + scans for her music releases please request them here =)/
