Today’s UTB features model/actress Shinohara Ryoko who’s still very much active today in dramas and looking back to 1995 Ryoko~san also began a career in J~pop then with “Lady Generation” leading the way in both single and album releases~. I actually have this album and I’ll post both album scans and complete tracks upon request. This issue also features a bit of a rarity in that it includes a rather large sized poster of Shinohara Ryoko pictured just below.
Notable features and articles include: Mochida Maki opening feature where I think she looks just amazing~*!! For the complete J~pop works of Mochida Maki click here~*/
