~「TGIF!」Idol♥’s unzipped on way back Fridays~ (volume 6)

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 =).

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.

BOMB November 1996

BOMB’s 201st issue continues to celebrate their landmark achievement with some pretty amazing~* autographed presents (scanned just below) with surely Nakama Yukie’s autographed Polaroid set being a most collectible if you were lucky enough to receive one~! Covergirl Nakayama Emiri whom if you weren’t already familiar with you’re probably feeling more and familiar with her now?…..just a few days ago I added what I believe is her lone J~pop single release “Private Eyes” and she’s fast becoming a familiar face and idol pictorial~girl regular, appearing in these flashback zasshi posts~. And being this month’s covergirl she receives all of BOMB’s perks which include extended pictorial (where she looks absolutely yummy~♥ in that gray & white knitted two~piece (*´∀`*) ♪!!)、

…growing~up feature where you’ll get a peek inside Nakayama~san’s personal family album with yes~! baby photos!! lol I know I keep saying that but I just adore seeing idols in their deepest of youth…always so cute! and just to see how’ve they’ve grown =). Also included are the long~interview article, omelette~rice cooking with Emiri where she cooks for you!…no actually it’s not for you sorry she ate it herself =(, t.v. & CM works where she’s acted alongside some pretty big co~stars!, an abbreviated form of BOMB’s body evaluation which here becomes her “Body~Talk” (sorry guys BOMB wasn’t allowed this time to measure every inch of her body and share their findings =(!!….:P ), a really insightful and cool feature called “Emiri no nandemo BEST 5” where a vast array of likes~♥ are shared in short~list fashion~* and I’m especially loving her karaoke top 5 where at #1 are the incomparable Amuro Namie….at #3 the incomparable Moritaka Chisato…and at #5 the incomparable ZARD!!!….and also check for the little article on Emiri’s kashu (singer) debut singing lessons with a follow up in “Private Eyes” linked just above just in case you’re curious to hear =). Nakayama~san’s eyes are no doubt a major charm~* point I think as I truly believe that its all in one’s eyes….you know it’s so much how you get to learn much more about a person in an instant before words are even exchanged~.

BOMB continued to include a single sheet of cutie~♥ purikura stickers with each issue with this month’s featured girls including Hirosue Ryoko, Okina Megumi, Enomoto Kanako, Takahashi Yumiko, Suzuki Sarina Kanno Miho, Hinagata Akiko, Nakayama Emiri, Sakai Miki & Aoki Yuko.

Other notable features and articles include: Hirosue Ryoko pictorial, Nishida Hikaru pictorial & interview (yet another idol whom I’d love to one day post about here as she’s really awesome…pretty….talented and I own her complete musical discography =) ), long interview with the yes~! incomparable Nakama Yukie, new drama guide which includes nostalgic peeks @ “Zoku Hoshi no kinka”…”Oishii kankei”…and ”Concerto” (where the awesome and then long awaited pairing of Kimutaku and Tamura Masakazu occurred with the beautiful Miyazawa Rie completing one most troublesome love~triangles ever, yes yikes!!!), Idol News, Suzuki Sarina pictorial, Enomoto Kanako pictorial, Aoki Yuko pictorial, Music New Release information (check out Amuro Namie’s “Original Dance Tracks Vol.1” being featured there along with the then latest from Spitz, FIELD OF VIEW, Uchida Yuki & Nakajima Miyuki.), and gosh now there’s not one “butt” two pages of AV “reviews” lol my original puzzlements can be found in an earlier volume of these flashback posts xD, Matsumoto Megumi CM feature, Miura Rieko’s continuing “Love Letter for you” monthly feature, Kanno Miho pictorial & article where we fiiiiiiiinally learn much more about that whole “Iguana” series thingy =), Takahashi Yumiko live concert report, Sakai Miki live concert report, MAX pictorial, Hinagata Akiko getting wet~wild~and~sexy!!, Okina Megumi pictorial and a most unusual interview with the short~existing idol group L☆is which in one swoop holds both a debut as well as a farewell~breaking up interview…. =O!!! I mean has that ever occurred before or since? Just below is their “debut/breakup interview” and I actually own their single “Running on” so I’ve uploaded it here also as it seemed quite fitting to couple their music with what can only be the quickest hello~goodbye in music history…..I wonder?? =O It’s also notable that this group was the product of Asayan who’s most famous production remains Momusu and that they were executive produced by Komuro Tetsuya and you can really his trademark 90’s sound here on display as this song mix is a medley of previous singles by the likes of Globe, Amuro Namie & TRF.
