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.
Included amongst the many career choices of idols are: CMs, pbs, acting and of course a singing career and it all seems so natural a movement although truly not every idol was meant to vocalize~.
Case in point:
Released on June 19th 2002 this single represented her music debut and while it’s perhaps taken for granted that through the magic of studio editing and enhancements @ times, just about anyone who’s cute & cuddly & sexy can sing right? ?? Not totally true and while I myself am not a karaoke star this is just one of those sort of rare occurrences where something just isn’t meant to be. I’ve always adored♥ you Kanako~chan!…and to prove it I purchased your debut single without hesitation and I commend the effort~* but you’re a much better actress (loved you as the detective!!), beauty and fun & cute personality~* and just not a singer =).

~Enomoto Kanako “Arigatou” mp3~
Sometimes when you take a chance on an artist it’s hit or miss….now for Simon’s reaction…
..you gotta love his honesty ^ ^.
The November 1995 issue of UTB features Mochida Maki as covergirl♥ with one of my most favorite pictorials being that of Tate Misato whom was yet to debut as an actress in her memorable role in the t.v. drama series “Long Vacation” where it was real life imitating art or perhaps art imitating real life~ as her portrayal of the hot new idol♥ in the series was subsequently being played out in very much her own life~ and while her acting career has been a bit modest since she’s still active to this day in entertainment….I think she’s so cute!!
Ayu’s kashu debut also appeared in this issue…can you believe it’s been that long….well actually after checking out her endless discography I think we can all believe =)!! As you can see in her promo pic below Ayu wasn’t yet “Ayu” while she was very much still being marketed as an idol~ly girl♥! Yup we’re talking bikini pictorials and the like dating to back then and further back still~ (maybe those will appear in a later volume here?).
Notable articles include: Enomoto Kanako pictorial/ Kanno Miho sultry sexy* like before you could ever imagine her as a horror character in a movie!!! =O/ Nishida Hikaru “Sophisticated yancha lady ‘95” concert tour report/ Hinagata Akiko drama report/ Tsuruta Mayu interview/ Katou Noriko shigoto feature & single feature…you know her as an actress and variety t.v. girl but most likely you’d recognize her as one of Hello! Project’s concert hosts from awhile back =)/ Amuro Namie with Super Monkeys live report and discography….she was only up to single number 5 then with “Stop the Music” (one of few promotional posters which I’ve collected from Amurochan♥) and how awesome would it have been to have seen her live then?!! By the time she performed here in Hawaii the Super Monkeys were no more and instead had moved onto becoming MAX/ Avex live report/ Ohtsuka Nene pictorial/ Tate Misato pictorial/ Matsumoto Megumi pictorial/ Yada Akiko new face feature/ Shiina Hekiru seiyuu feature/ Suzuki Yumie room invasion sharing feature takes a page out of Bomb Magazine!/ J~pop new releases/ Kanno Miho x Mochida Maki feature/ Mochida Maki pictorial/ Hosho Mai pictorial/ Visual Queen of the Year Yuui Ryoko/ Mitsui Yuri pictorial/ Till next week ＾＾♥。
