This download is of the Nakayoshi 45th Anniversary Special Issue.
Many of Naoko Takeuchi’s works, including Sailor Moon, were serialized by chapter in this monthly publication before being published by Kodansha in book format. These back issues of Nakayoshi are extremely difficult to find due to their age, the fact that the publisher does not allow for direct back issue re-ordering, and their rarity – many collectors in Japan prize these issues, especially when they feature famous artists such as Ms. Takeuchi.

The second time the first chapters of Sailor Moon and Rayearth have appeared in the same magazine together! #MixxZine
First thing I notice on the cover, even before Sailor Moon – Daa Daa Daa! (UFO Baby) <3
Wasn’t that such a great series?! So underappreciated!
