This download is of the Nakayoshi August 1997 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.
This particular issue does not include any work by Naoko Takeuchi or related to Sailor Moon, but is a rare find nonetheless because it features the original serialization of the hit mega-series “Card Captor Sakura”. I figured some mahou shoujo fans might enjoy this download of an issue from my private collection :)
