BOMB magazine June 1998

Tonight’s issue goes back to June of 1998 and marks one of the earlier times which Fukakyon~♥ appeared in BOMB magazine and what’s always great about being covergirl is of course the extensive attention BOMB gives you with this honor~. In addition to the extended photography (here Fukakyon looking absolutely adora~yummy =D ) are the long interview, growing up history (where we get a peek into her family’s personal photo album going from baby photos through school years and beyond…and I think judging by those pics Fukakyon herself must’ve known she’d be set for future idoling and stardom…so so cute there!), a fun look into the layout of her bedroom (where yup her piano was already in place and there’s also an abundance of Pingu to speak of!), Fukakyon’s work activity which included back then CMs and acting and her feature even digs a bit deeper than most who get covergirl honors and if you’re curious to know just what makes her tick~* a psychological questionaire also appears here. Still the most fun can be found in Fukakyon’s top 5 rankings which covers a wide spectrum of topics….here you’ll learn that her most favorite food is fried potato, her most disliked foods include the seafood family and specifically shrimp (ebi) & ika (squid), her most favorite karaoke songs include from the top “Love is all music”…“Hate tell a lie”….and “I’m Proud”..interestingly all Kahara Tomomi songs!! and along with a few other topics her movie top 5 is topped by none other than Mel Gibson’s “Brave Heart”….of course this was waaaaaaaay before he went nuts =O!!!! You gotta love that! “Brave Heart” was her #1 back then and I always thought that was a guy~flick =P! Oh and let’s not forget most ‘importantly’ of all….Fukakyon’s body~check done BOMB style here too.

..and it was like she came out of nowhere back then and I remember her debut single being promoted very heavily and a large part of that was Komuro Tetsuya (who ruled all things music back then!) was producing her and she was just 13 years old then =O! I was sucked in too and have a few of her releases which featured both Japanese and Chinese versions~…her voice was sweet♥.

…till next week please remember to idol responsibly^^!

(note: somehow this magazine was stapled together a tinny bit crooked it seems as when I lay it flat it doesn’t actually lay in line from side to side so some of these scans will appear to be a bit off from page to page xD)
